Last week, I discussed a few of the affordable fashion trends I am most excited for. Although I can’t wait to wear the frilly, vibrant pieces associated with spring, there’s nothing I love more than simple basics that add understated luxury to my wardrobe. Today, I wanted to take it a step forward and share the staple pieces I rely on to elevate my spring wardrobe.
You can easily shop for any of these items at Walmart! Regardless of what clothes you’re looking for, Walmart pretty much covers all your bases through its own budget-friendly brands and premium offerings from Lord & Taylor. As much as I love designer brands, nothing beats a good high and low combination. Scroll down to get the spring wardrobe essentials I’ll be mixing and matching with my favorite trends. Together, they’ll get you through the season in style.
Structured pieces in timeless silhouettes will always have a soft spot in my heart – mainly because I am a sucker for items that will never go out of style. I never have any hesitation about adding tailored blazers to my wardrobe. This Anne Klein blazer from Walmart is truly a smart option. Throw it over spring’s boldest trends like camo or vibrant florals and you’ll transform your look into a classic ensemble! You can also elevate denim shorts or ripped jeans with a simple blazer.
Another basic item I need to have within my wardrobe at all times are some staple t-shirts in neutral colors. I’ve been wearing my Lord & Taylor tees on repeat because the style is more fitted. It provides a blank canvas for any layers you might want to wear such as light jackets or scarves. This tee can be transformed with a strong blazer and some statement jewelry.
Since spring is all about looks that are fresh and fun, it is the perfect time to update your blue jeans to a white wash. I am so in love with this pair of white skinny jeans and how elevated they look with spring colors. They fit like a glove and the distressed hem gives it a more relaxed feel – perfect for a casual weekend. The cropped style lets you show off a pair of sandals and a fresh pedicure.
When in doubt, strappy heels can instantly elevate your spring outfit. I have always been a fanatic of jeans-and-heels outfits because the end result is so sexy, chic, and powerful. Walmart has a range of heels for every occasion from brands like Kenneth Cole, Vince Camuto, and Sam Edelman.
Top Handle Handbag
Never underestimate the power of a good handbag to bring your outfit to a whole new level. Look for structured styles with top handles to make a statement. The silhouette of this handbag is sharp and eye catching, which elevates any ensemble.
I’ll be keeping these items in heavy rotation throughout spring. Be sure to check out Walmart so you can stock up on these staples too!
