Every time a season changes, I realize that there are “gaps” in my wardrobe that need to be filled. The gaps happen for many reasons: whether it is something that I craved during the same season a year ago but didn’t find the right style, or waited so long that it was no longer needed, or I simply loved the item so much that I wore it to pieces and need to replenish.
This year, my spring essentials are: versatile trench, few softer-than-cashmere tees, a pair of leggings, and a new dress that will work equally well with flats during the day and platform pumps at night. Here are some well priced finds to get started.
1. MICHAEL Michael Kors Belted Short Trench Coat – $98($165). When the weather is in limbo and it is too warm for a winter coat, but not warm enough to go without a jacket, this short trench is must essential. It also comes in black and many more colors.
2.Fluxus Storm Jersey V-neck Boyfriend t-shirt –$22($32). Fluxus tee comes in multitude of hues, this downtown chic tee is soft, and is a perfect essential to wear with jeans, tights, and a skirt for a quick and chic understated look. Wear it solo or layer under a cardigan on a windy day.
Plan B black Stretch Jersey Leggings – $37(from 62). A pair of black leggings is essential for easy outings. Wear it with a long tee, layer it under tunic or a skirt that is one or two inches shorter that what you are comfortable with wearing atop bare skin (or light colored pantyhose). If you are going for edgy look, pair them up with Rock & Republic studded pumps above and an asymmetrical leather jacket.
Rock & Republic black leather ‘Nika’ studded pumps – $177($295). A pair of great pumps is essential for an evening out. Turn to these edgy platform pumps to add a few inches during a night out. Rock them with a pair of designer jeans or a pair of tights.
JB by Julie Brown Navy Magnolia Print ‘Morgan’ Dress– $125($208). This pucci-esque dress has pretty florals, without being too frilly. Black background and modern cut creates a classy look.
