As I sit and write this in the dead of winter, under layers of chunky sweaters and blankets, it seems that there could not be a better time to start daydreaming about spring. Fresh blooms, sunny days, leaving the windows open to let in the cool fresh air- are all things I've found myself picturing while I drift away from the arctic freeze outside. . .
Of course, I'm most excited about the wardrobe changes. After giving it some thought, and clothes are something I think about quite a bit, the idea of just keeping things simple sounded in my head. Why make things harder than they have to be? I love the idea of having a few key pieces that do all the work for you- the classic white shirt, for example. Another resolution I made this year was to turn my attention to the hard-working essentials- sustainable, classic pieces that will last years in my wardrobe. I've mindfully kept my resolution in mind as I look forward to spring trends. Crisp, modern, all-American are three words I have in mind that define how I want to dress once spring has sprung.
I love the balance of structured top and unstructured boyfriend jean, the iconic well-worn denim jacket tied around the waist, the crisp, tailored black tuxedo pant for dressier days. A modern silhouette, a classic white shirt, and natural hair and makeup will be my go-to inspirations for spring. I want everything to feel clean and fresh, either perfectly tailored or perfectly untailored, with a washy pale blue and lavender color palette mixed with more classic pieces. Of course I'll throw in a bit of dark grey, which has been one of my favorite neutrals as of late, not only because I love it on my skin tone but also because it will work wonderfully against blues, blacks and whites. And if you really want to make things interesting, I love the idea of boldly printed accessories, ladylike handbags and a classic pair of sunnies for running around town. Nude strappy sandals, beige or white mules and possibly even a navy jumpsuit are all on my list of things to try for the upcoming season!
