Want to rock a trend, but feeling intimidated about incorporating it into your daily outfits? The secret is learning how to pair your fun, trendy pieces with your closet staples for a cohesive look from head to toe. Because let's be real, you never want to look back at a picture and think "Gah, what was I wearing?!"
It's all about shopping your own closet for timeless staples that will make a more trendy piece fit seamlessly into your closet. For example, this off-the-shoulder dress ($45) from Old Navy. We love how the midi length, the floral printed design, and the chic neckline make this a must-have addition to your Spring closet. But when you style it out with your favorite tried-and-true pieces, you'll be able to wear it for many seasons to come!
It's All About the Footwear
Let's start from the bottom up, shall we? The Spring-inspired florals may be screaming for open-toed shoes, but feel free to mix it up with booties, sneakers, and pumps!
You can't go wrong with a nice monochromatic choice, so classic white sneakers ($20) are always a good idea. But if you're feeling a little bit adventurous, try a white bootie ($190) for a totally fashion-editor-approved look.
Next Up, Jackets
With Spring's unpredictable weather patterns, chances are you'll need a jacket to accompany this shoulder-baring dress. We recommend sticking with the classics: a timeless trench and slightly edgier moto jacket.
A midthigh trench ($138) is lightweight and simple yet will help pull the whole look together in a very sophisticated way, while a suede moto jacket ($45) is a touch more cool but just as stylish. The colors play off of the pops of color in a dress for a perfectly styled out look.
Finish With Some Bling
Depending on the vibe you're going for, there are a few options when it comes to accessorizing your look. Try going bold and big with dramatic gold hoops ($100) or keep it simple and classic with a dainty chain necklace ($280). Either will make the right kind of statement.
