I’m so glad winter is finally over! Yes Spring is here which means its time to push the heavier clothing to one side of the closet and make way for lighter, and perhaps bolder coloured fabrics. There’s a variety of spring wardrobe basics that one should own this year. These basics should be used as building blocks to a functional style. With that in mind, I’ve figured out a way to get a head start on your spring-summer outfit planning. How? By starting with the easiest, throw-and-go pieces you know you’ll wear over and over again. After all, one of the best things about warmer weather is not having to layer up before you leave the house; just grab any of the 5 staples ahead and you’re ready to walk out the door.
From Chanel’s two-tone version to Gucci’s fur-lined slip-ons, mules enjoyed a huge resurgence last summer. And there’s no denying that this backless shoe is already proving to be just as popular this year. Mules are practically everywhere. And why not? With walkable block heels, chic crisscross bodies, and a bright crop of colors, they’re so much cooler than the clogs from your childhood.
Yes they are back and even bigger than ever. Fashion’s ongoing love affair with floral prints continues for Spring 2017 with a myriad of designers offering up their take on the iconic pattern. Be ready to embrace your feminine self with floral dresses, crop tops, swimwear, bags and even shoes. Its all about vibrant hues this season.

3. The Denim Piece
If you don’t already have a denim shirt or jacket, go and pick one up. Seriously. Do it now. There’s nothing more classic—or more comfy during the spring and summer months. Whether you pair it with denim shorts to rock the denim-on-denim look, wear it with a dressy skirt and heels, or throw it over your bikini and hit the beach, it’s clear that a basic denim shirt is your warm weather wardrobe MVP.
Pink is hot this spring. That’s right, the prayers of girls everywhere have been answered and pink—from neons and fuschias to dusty roses and muted blushes—is not only back, but it’s being declared the unofficial color of the year. Which means we can finally break out all of that pink we’ve been hoarding for years and actually be on trend while rocking it everywhere from the grocery store to the nightclub.

5. Head Scarves
The most versatile and key accessory of this season has to be the head scarf. It will definitely be the most wearable thing in your wardrobe. Apart from the fact that it can be worn in a number of ways, it will add an instant colour fix to a neutral closet.
Hope you guys enjoyed reading this one! Stay tuned for more summer trends and some cool hair & makeup tutorials coming your way.
