1. Flared Trousers
On Wright: Veronica Beard blazer and trousers
"I love having a non-jean option to wear with all my tops, and these flared trousers are so flattering and leg-lengthening. … I feel so tall!"
2. Utility Jacket
On Wright: Anine Bing jacket; Mother jeans; Marc Fisher sandals
"This is a wardrobe basic that works for pretty much everyone. I'm going to be wearing my utility jacket all spring long with strappy sandals for a night out and sneakers on the weekend."
4. Straight-Leg Jeans
On Wright: Madewell jacket; Fidelity jeans; Stuart Weitzman shoes
"I've pretty much scooted my skinnies off to the side, and now, I'll be wearing slim straight-leg styles (or wide-leg flares) all season long!"
On Wright: Rhode dress; Gucci bag; Saint Laurent sandals
"When spring rolls around and warmer weather arrives, pretty dresses are my favorite thing to wear. They're easy, the options are endless, and you always look good."
On Wright: Rag & Bone blazer; Frame jeans; Mansur Gavriel bag
"Adding a bag that isn't black to your wardrobe is a great idea! It adds a pop of color to all your outfits, and it's the secret to a more interesting look."
On Wright: J.Crew sweater; Tom Wood rings; Bony Levy earrings
"I recently gave my jewelry collection an update by adding a dome ring and a chain necklace. For a chic look, stack your necklaces, bracelets, and rings—the more the merrier."
