Spring has (almost) sprung, and usually, around this time I’d be looking out for spring trends and getting excited about what to try. This year is obviously different. I’m actually not even sure what the trends are, but that’s what Who What Wear is for, right? I don’t know if you can call them trends, but there are certainly pieces I keep gravitating towards. That means sticking to what I’m comfortable in, and pieces that I know work for me with a little twist.
I’m still buying staples, but the versions I’m buying for my seasonal refresh have a little extra oomph to them. For example, instead of my usual plain T-shirt, I’ve been picking up a cheeky graphic tee. Because who couldn’t use an extra smile these days? Playing around with proportions and sizing has also been really fun this year, especially when it means a more comfortable fit. My go-to white shirts and blazers have all gotten an oversize, menswear-inspired makeover. I’m even excited about shoulder pads again!
The best part about these three trends? They’ll last a lot longer than just a season and work for anyone, at any age.
1. Oversize Blazers
After a long year of sweats, I’m finally ready for a more polished look. Oversize, shoulder-padded blazers are a perfect transitional piece.
After borrowing my hubby's shirt time and time again, I thought it was finally time to invest in one of my own. There are so many great options out there these days for oversize white shirts, and the runways this season confirm it's a staple worth owning.
