This Spring, I Can't Live Without My . . .

Mar 15 2010 - 11:00am

Editor's note: The following is a guest post written by Rachel Zoe [1], celebrity stylist and fashion designer. This week Rachel dishes on her must have Spring items.

Now that we are officially transitioning from Winter to Spring, the stars are aligned to update your wardrobe! This can seem somewhat overwhelming with so many new mah-jor clothes and accessories hitting stores, so it is best to take your time and make a list of a few key Spring pieces you can't live without. I miraculously edited my bookmarked tab of must-have items down to five — each one is versatile, glamorous, and will stand the test of time — read on to find out what they are! xoRZ

White Tuxedo Jacket

You can never go wrong with a black blazer, but there is something oh-so-amahzing about rocking a white one [2] during the Spring. The perfect day-to-night piece, I suggest wearing it straight from the office to a night out on the town.

Try: Plastic Island Leighton Blazer [3]

Dramatic Cuff

When you are in the mood to wear jeans and a tee, but still want to incorporate a touch of glamour into your look, try accessorizing with a striking cuff [4]. Remember: Statement-making jewelry should never be reserved to just your nighttime attire.

Try: Dannijo Chloe Cuff [5]

Sky-High Wedges

As an undeniable current trend in the fashion world, every girl needs at least one pair of wedges [6] in her closet. I love this pale version — nude is the new black for Spring — or any version with a wooden sole. The higher, the better!

Try: Aldo Gettel Wedges [7]


Multi-Color Scarf

Now is the time to embrace color in every way imaginable, so why not throw on an eye-catching scarf [8]? (Preferably an oversized version in a lightweight fabric.) A scarf is the quickest fix to give a little life to any snoozy outfit combo; just wrap it on and go . . .

Try: Rachel Zoe for QVC Navajo Jacquard Scarf [9]



Transitional Leather Jacket

A lightweight leather jacket [10] is hands-down my No. 1 Spring essential. You can wear it everywhere from the office (swap out your blazer from time to time) with a bowtie blouse and slouchy trousers, to your next date night over dress shorts and a tee. Either way, take the look to the next level with a glam necklace and platform pumps. Ba-na-nas.

Try: BB Dakota Avery Washed Leather Jacket [11]
