What I'm Buying to Dress Better This Spring

Spring on the horizon means another shot at making this coming season even more stylish than the last. After all, no matter how well one dresses, there’s always room for improvement. And for those who feel they’re in a lull or that their style has plateaued, you can always upgrade your wardrobe in little ways that will actually make a big difference in not just how you look but, more importantly, how you feel.

With this in mind, I’ve put together a reasonable little list of the five fashion items I’ll be buying in order to make this spring my best dressed season yet. Think a handful of classics with some trendy pieces sprinkled throughout. From knits to dresses to comfortable footwear—emphasis on comfortable—just keep scrolling to see, read about, and shop the pieces I know will upgrade my style for the months to come.  

1. Interesting Knits

Nineties-inspired tanks and atypical knits are shaping up to be big for spring and just might take the place of all our favorite blouses, so there’s no better time to stock up.

For me, the key to actually wearing heels in my day-to-day life (and not just to events) is owning cute-but-comfortable pairs that I can wear as easily as other shoes.

3. Fashion-Forward Dresses

As someone who isn’t the biggest "dress person" but loves admiring them on others, I’m hoping to work the chic staple further into my own wardrobe by finding styles that feel more fashion-forward than simply for utility.

4. Pants That Aren't Jeans

I’ll always love my jeans, but this season, I’ve noticed some of my favorite fashion girls opting more for trousers, leather pants, and even trendy, split leggings, and I’m inspired.

Spring outerwear can be tricky, but instead of treating it as an afterthought, I'll be investing in polished shackets, blazers, trenches, and more.
