I have to admit: I haven't done as much shopping this year as I would have liked to. I found it difficult to justify buying another pair of white pumps when I was spending the majority of my time at home, perfectly comfortable in my fuzzy socks and leggings. The moment, however, has come for me to get my head back in the game. I was well aware that I'd need some shopping advice as I dusted off my credit card, and there was no one better to turn to than my favorite fashion folk who not only have covetable wardrobes but also have that knack for carrying their personal style into their home décor and beauty cabinets.
Who What Wear's fashion director, Natalie Cantell, has the coolest classic style that I've been trying to copy without her noticing (not that she'd mind) for years now. I knew reaching out to her and Anneliese Dominguez, my fellow editor who really knows how to nail seasonal trends, would be a no-brainer. My Who What Wear team obviously did not disappoint, but I wanted to spice things up a bit. I've been following fashion influencers Keyma Morgan of The Style Weekender and Kelsey Floyd because they've mastered the art of loungewear while also managing to convince me to add a pop of color to my wardrobe. Between the four of these lovely ladies, I have my Macy's cart filled to the brim with some of the most coveted (yet super affordable) spring pieces. From stylish home picks to the sweat set I need to get my hands on, these are the 20 items you can't miss RN.
Natalie identifies her style personality as more classic, and if I'm being honest, she always gives me that New Yorker vibe I try to achieve even though I'm very much on the West Coast. "Spring shopping really feels even more optimistic than usual this year," she tells me. "I’m buying things that I can wear at home immediately but can imagine getting excited about hopefully wearing around people in the real world before too long. I'm always looking for fashion staples I know I'll wear to death, as well as gold accents and beauty products that promise to make me glow."
From the day Anneliese joined Who What Wear, I've been bugging her with questions like, "What kind of perfume are you wearing?" or "Where did you get those shoes?" I can't help it—she has killer trendsetting style. For her spring wardrobe, she tells me, "I'm on the hunt for pieces I can mix and match with different things. I like knit tops I can throw on with jeans or dress up with a skirt or sandals that are chic yet comfortable enough to wear all the time. I'm all about neutrals but always try to add a little color for variety. It is spring, so it's only right."
Saying goodbye to my boring white plates—Anneliese is onto something with these pops of color.
Keyma Morgan, who is a mom to a young toddler like myself, has introduced me to a slew of ways to incorporate color into my wardrobe. Yes, I'm one of those people who considers beige a color, so it really took someone with Morgan's level of expertise in bold hues to convert me. "Spring to me means it’s time to have fun," she explains. "I look for trends and fun colors that enhance my wardrobe. Maybe they remind me of something amazing or tell me we’re about to go on a journey."
Knowing pink will be huge this season, I say give an eyeshadow stick a try.
Finally, Kelsey Floyd has absolutely mastered the art of looking as fashion-forward as one can dream of being in loungewear. The full-time mom and influencer, who also manages to find time to create beautiful pottery, is speaking my language when it comes to shopping for the upcoming season. She explains that she's "looking for elevated loungewear pieces that are comfortable and can be worn around the house, but with a cute pair of shoes and a few accessories, can easily be worn out of the house."
