10 Spring Staples

Hey dolls! May is almost here and summer is right around the corner! Even though most days it feels like it's already here! It’s a great season for change. Whether you’re planning to travel, attend music festivals or simply relax on the beach during your vacation, it’s a great time to update your closet. Keeping in mind that most of us are shopping on a budget as well here are some great inexpensive options that can be mixed and matched!

 10 Staple Spring Must Haves!

Only $24.99 4th & Ocean has multiple colors! I have the mint ones! Plus there are tons of denim and leopard prints available! (Come see me today!!!)

1.    High-waisted shorts
High waisted shorts are flattering on all kinds of different body types and elongate the legs while giving off a retro-vibe. They can be any material, and can be found in the classic denim blue or other colors. High-waisted shorts can be worn casually (think, Daisy Dukes!) or formally with a nice pair of heels.
White Lace Dress available at Sophie & Trey or online at www.sophieandtrey.com
2.    Anything lacy
Lace is HUGE right now and can be worn in an adorable-girlie way as opposed to looking like lingerie. Major ways to wear the material currently: crocheted lace shorts and lacy shirts with a peek-a-boo bandeau underneath.
So many wedges at Sophie & Trey and some at 4th & Ocean as well!
 3.    Colorful wedges
Wedges could easily be dubbed the “Shoe of the Summer.” Whether paired with skinny pants or a flowy sundress, wedges are a great choice. There are so many fun options with colors or keeping it classic. They also give more support and are easier to walk in than stilettos. So indulge in a pedicure and flaunt those pretty toes in the shoe-of-the-season!

These hats are amazing from 4th & Ocean! Perfect to step up any look!
 4.    Hats, hats and more hats!
A hat is one of the easiest ways to upgrade any outfit from okay to super trendy. What is currently the most popular kind of hat in the Spring/Summer collections? Big, wide-rimmed, floppy beach hats! Take a hint from the English…the bigger the better! Sport your fashionable headwear at the beach to keep the bright sun out of your face.
Green blazer available at Sophie & Trey $45.00
Bold Statement White Blazer available at www.sophieandtrey.com

5.    Unconventional blazers
A nice, structured blazer is incidentally one of the most versatile pieces that you could possess. While the classic black blazer might pair well with more things, try the summer-version of this staple and invest in a colorful one! If neutrals are more your thing, try white as opposed to black. It is a clean, classic look that automatically makes you look more expensive and pairs well with just about everything.

Whimsical Sundress available at www.sophieandtrey.com only $32.99
 6.    Sundresses
Duh! Summer is the season that sundresses were created for, and the variety in the stores this season is incredible.  While being one of the comfiest things that you could wear in the hotter months, there is a sundress for every body type and fashion sense. Current trends seen on the runways are high-low hemlines, interesting backs and colorful boho styles.
Yellow Black Orchid Jeans available at Sophie & Trey only $89.99 (compared to $120) Also available in a variety of colors. Plus we have neon and more!
7.    Pastel pants
Colorful pants are back with a vengeance, this time showing up in pastel shades like mint green, pale yellow and pale-pink. Cropped, skinny styles are everywhere right now and look great paired with a simple, white top.

Only $34.99 at 4th & Ocean

8.    Western-inspired boots
Country is having a major moment and inspiring numerous fashion trends. There are very few instances when you don’t see stars like Kate, Bosworth, Taylor Swift and Miranda Lampbert rocking their cowgirl boots. Take a hint from these chic celebs! City dwellers and country girls alike should invest in a pair of these boots to be worn with everything from sundresses to denim!

9.    Bralette Tops
These tops are so cute and a great way to keep cool in the hottest season. Show the perfect amount of skin by pairing a bralette with anything high waisted bottom to keep the outfit from being too scandalous. Another hint…go with a cute lacy bralette, like at 4th & Ocean or a lace bandeau from Sophie & Trey, to kill two fashion trends with one piece!

Available at Sophie & Trey

10. Toy watches in bright colors
Right now, toy watches are all the rage in the accessory world. While white and gold watches were popular in the winter months, colored watches are the new way to change it up for Spring!  And the best part…you can find very luxurious-looking toy watches for cheap prices! Perfect!

So get in your closet and clean out some of those things you never wear and think you will (you won't!) and get your must haves for spring!

Happy shopping!
Love, Dani
