Each season, we find it really fun to add both timeless and trendy new pieces into our wardrobes. The timeless ones will stay with us for years, and the trendy ones can be rotated in and out of wear. We’ve compiled the best of the best of both timeless and trendy pieces for you to add to your wardrobe with our Spring Wardrobe Essentials Guide. It’s our Ultimate Guide to Spring 2018 Fashion.
What To Wear This Spring – According to It Girls and Fashion Insiders
The fashion Gods have spoken, and there are some major trends we should be working into our wardrobes this season. We’ve seen 15 or more trends featured in prominent publications like W Magazine, Elle, and WWD, from wide leg trousers (did you see Blake Lively’s recent Moms’ Night Out Outfit? If not, check it out on LUXYMOM’s Facebook Page post from Jan. 21st) to upscale denim, bright gemstone colors, fringe, pastels like lavender, and updated trench coats. Here are the six pieces that we think you’ll want to wear this spring, and how to wear them for mom life.
The Wide Leg Trousers I Love for Work or Moms Night Out
This high waist, wide leg trouser from Express is $69.90 and you’ll get so much wear out of these babies! They’re perfect for work, for a girls night out, moms night out, date night, you name it! And, they’ll be a great piece to hold onto for many years, and through many trend cycles. To be honest, I’d even wear these with a knotted white t-shirt and a par of sandals or wedges as the weather gets warmer – for a day outing with the kiddos!
The Trench Coat You Need for a Transitional Spring Outfit
Have you ever bought yourself a truly timeless trench that will withstand the test of time? This gorgeous camel colored trench coat from 1. State at REVOLVE is $169, and will serve you well as a transitional piece year-round. Take it from casual – with jeans and a tee – to dressy – over a little black dress. This coat will go with everything you own and be perfect for every activity you do.
A Lavender Dress for Cocktails or a Spring Wedding
Lavender is the It Girl color of the Spring 2018 fashion season. You’ll see it everywhere, but we love it on a beautiful floral dress like this one from J.O.A. at REVOLVE for $98. You’ll be able to wear this to cocktails, to work (depending on your company’s dress code), to brunch, to a daytime wedding, or just running errands around town.
The Gemstone Color Shirt That Will Get You Through a Case of the Mondays
Yellow is another color of the Spring 2018 fashion season, and this brightly colored yellow blouse from MiH Jeans at Farfetch ($370) is just a stunning piece. It’ll also go with those black wide leg trousers we showed you above! While this one is a bit pricey, here’s a more economical version from Vince Camuto for $79.
Haute Denim That Makes You Feel Hot
You’ll see us often write about skinny jeans, because they’ve just been so hot over the last few years. But it’s nice to change things up once in a while. The pair below are just so fun and will go with so many items (including that gorgeous yellow top above). Find the MiH Jeans Lou High Rise Flare Jean at Matches Fashion for $241. A little pricey, but if you wear them a lot, then this will be a good splurge. And we usually feel that denim is a good splurge item.
A fun skirt is a great addition to a fun wardrobe, and this one from BB Dakota is on sale for less than $25 at Lord and Taylor! Wear it with a gorgeous blouse like the yellow one above, along with black booties, for cocktails! Or wear it with a knotted tee and sandals for a cool, casual chic look as you run errands with the littles!
