Spring Fashion Essentials

Since we are approaching warm weather, it’s time to change up our go-to fashion staples. My favorite staples in the spring are a good pair of jean shorts, a light cardigan, and a small brown or beige cross-body handbag.

The Perfect Jean Short

These jean shorts are good for everyday wear and can be worn with any color top. They are light washed, which is great for spring/summer. I like to wear jean shorts in warmer weather because they dress up your outfit a little more and they basically look good with any top and summer shoe. One of my favorite places to buy jean shorts are at American Eagle and Lulus. I tend to get all of my denim at American Eagle because the jeans and shorts are stretchier than most brands and that makes wearing denim a lot more enjoyable and less restricting.

Go-to cardigan for warmer weather


This style of cardigan is perfect for the spring time. It is a great color and it is light weight. This kind of cardigan works for nighttime when it gets a little chilly. The nice thing about longer cardigans like the one shown up, is that you don’t even have to put it on when it gets chilly at night. You can throw it on your shoulders or put it around your waist if you are wearing shorts so your legs don’t get cold. One of my favorite places to buy a good quality cardigan that is reasonably priced is from Urban Outfitters. They have all different kinds and different colors for everyone.

Basic cross body bag

This brown cross body bag from Madewell is perfect for everyday wear and can be styled with the other two clothes items listed above. It is big enough to carry what you need but not too bulky. You can just throw your things in it loosely or you can put in a smaller wallet for your cards. Even though it is a simple leather bag, with a simple strap, there is still nice detailing on the zipper. Madewell has a lot of nice, simple pieces like this bag, including sunglasses and jewelry. You can find all of the different accessories at Madewell.
