Spring Capsule Wardrobe
Edgy, yet looks especially cool with girly florals.
Parisian and chic! Makes a great workwear choice too.
Wear layered or on its own. Cropped is cute too!
Casual, but can be dressed up or down. Looks especially cute over dresses or with white jeans.
Perfect to throw over anything. Looks great with pink!
These tops look great with white jeans and are nice for casual spring looks!
So fresh for the new season! Matches almost everything.
light wash jeans-
Dress them up or down. Lighter color is great for spring!
You need some florals after all!
Pack the chunky cable knits away, bring out the lightweight cashmere!
One in each neutral color is ideal...your go-to layering piece!
At least one print is nice to have for interest and stripes are a great choice because they look great with florals!
Not as versatile as a basic tee, but still cute and good to have at least one nice blouse for the dressier occasions and sweeter looks!

For the sake of a minimalist wardrobe, I chose a floral dress because it's nice to have a little bit of color and print to play around with, but people really like their button down and/or t-shirt dresses too!
So fresh and they add a playful, casual touch to every look!
Something in a lighter color would make a great transition piece.
A classic! Great for work too.
Not an everyday shoe, but great for the warmer days or date night!

brown tote bag-
I like brown over black because it's "lighter" and brightens up your look!
I love a touch of gold to anything!
Classic & chic! As well as practical.
Whether you want to switch out some of these neutrals or not is up to you. Switching out the cardigan for a light pink one would be really cute, but of course, it needs to be neutral enough that you can wear it tons! If you're worried about wearability but still want some spring fever, bringing in colors and prints through your accessories + extras is a great idea!
