Workwear Essentials for Spring

The sun has been showing up on a regular basis and I have retired my wool coats. That’s a really good sign to start pulling out my spring workwear. I usually wear my trench coats and blazers during spring and try to mix the summer and winter wardrobe to keep my looks fresh. I'm not much of a new wardrobe shopper for every season. I like to keep reusing my high quality timeless pieces and maybe add one trendy item like a blouse or an accessory. I've been seeing midi skirts a lot still for spring and gingham seems to be the go to print. Here are my springtime favorites and what I will add as my trendy piece for the season.

KHAKI PANTS

Khaki pants look best with a white top, but I have worn mine with a baby blue blouse like the first outfit. I love pairing it with a darker colored blazer either navy blue or black.

PENCIL SKIRT WITH A LEATHER JACKET

One of my favorite combinations for spring when it's warm enough to just wear a leather jacket. I will often wear a scarf and different shoes with the same combination to change up my looks.

WIDE BELTS

Wide belts are still super chic for spring. I have had a wide black leather belt for years (similar to the one in the second outfit above), I know it will keep coming back in fashion and I love wearing it. My favorite way to wear it is just like in the first outfit with my black slacks, a lighter colored blouse and high heeled pumps.

TRENDY ITEM I WILL ADD THIS SEASON: GINGHAM BLOUSE

I've been seeing lots of gingham and I love the black and white combination since I wear a lot of black. It's easy to pair with black slacks or a black skirt and change up the color of my accessories. I'm thinking to wear it with my red and tan shoes/bag combination and some fun accessories.

WHERE TO SHOP FOR SIMILAR

I'm a huge believer in timeless, high quality pieces for the versatile clothing. I buy them once, have them tailored, and keep them for years. This would include items like khaki pants, leather jackets, pencil skirts, and a leather belt. The items I usually try to save on are accessories and tops. Anything with a trendy print I try to keep under $50 per item. Splurge or save options below.

ALWAYS SAVE AND ALWAYS SPLURGE

I will definitely try to pay under $50 for a Gingham blouse, but I highly recommend getting high quality khaki pants. The pants are going to be in season every year and they look very professional and are easy to pair with many different colors.
