In Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy wrote, "Spring is the time of projects and plans." Nearly two centuries later, we still see it the same way, don't we? A to-do list a mile long of things to clean, things to buy, tasks to accomplish. We love the feeling of a refreshed outlook that comes with checking off item after item, but that can be exhausting. If you're looking to give your wardrobe the spring treatment, we recommend a simple, 5-step update.
Start with your outerwear. You will inevitably end up reaching for your favorite denim jacket time and again— but we'd add something a bit more festive and colorful into the mix. A pastel jacket or floral bomber is just the ticket. We love these zip-ups from Zara and Topshop because they're perfectly on-trend and won't break the bank if you don't love them next year.
Earlier this season we told you about that sandal everyone would be wearing this spring—the flat, sporty slides epitomized by Birkenstock. You can fight it, but why bother? These sandals are comfortable and cool, not to mention, your mother will be happy about the arch support.
Also on our short list of easy updates? Swapping out our dresses for a romper or jumpsuit. These jaunty little one-pieces are great for picnics, bike riding and a busy day out-and-about, which are our favorite ways to spend a spring day. And if they happen to get in the way of all those plans and projects? All the better.
