8 Spring Fashion Essentials
February 26, 2013
“Hi there Centsational Girl readers, Jennifer here from Style Your Life. As a full time wardrobe stylist, this time of year is all about spring cleaning and refreshing our wardrobes. I did some online shopping with you in mind, and these are the eight pieces I think are must haves for your spring wardrobe!I don’t know about you but I am loving the colorful looks for spring. Bold color trends are still going strong into 2013. My favorite colors are turquoise, pink, and coral – they make my job easier since they are universally flattering, and everyone can wear these three colors.
1. A Casual Tee – I love that these stylish yet comfy tees are dressier then a plain old tee shirt!2. A Spring Weight Cardigan – With the fluctuating temps of spring, layering is critical! This piece is a wardrobe staple.3. A Button-Down Shirt – A great button down is incredibly versatile!
4. A Dress – Dresses are one of my favorite fashion weapons, they are a complete outfit and perfect for days when you don’t have a lot of time. These dresses can go from work to church to baby shower to summer wedding, they add instant chic to your day!5. A Chino Pant – Gone are the days of “khaki pants” we now have a rainbow of colorful chino pants to select from. If you haven’t dared wear colored pants yet, it is time! I suggest starting with your favorite color, because chances are you’ll have a lot of items in your wardrobe that you will be able to wear with them.Now on to the accessories… or as I like to call them the sprinkles! If you are afraid to commit to bold colors with larger pieces, this is a perfect way to introduce bold spring color into your wardrobe.6. A Statement Necklace – A wow necklace can truly “make” the outfit. Throw on a basic tee and jeans and add a statement necklace, it is seriously that easy!
7. A Statement Earring – If you are wearing a busy or patterned top or dress this is where you’ll add your fab factor.
8. A Bright Handbag or Clutch.

Another option is to dress in black and white with a pop of bold – a newer trend for spring. Also, be inspired to pair complementary colors, they look amazing together!”
