Spring is almost here.
Yep, it is true. And that means soon we will wearing fewer layers, lightening our color palette and fabrics and turning our faces to the sunshine as we enjoy longer days savored here in the northern hemisphere.
In so many ways, the spring season is a breath of fresh air and that includes giving our capsule wardrobes a refreshing as well. I quite enjoyed what the trends have in store for shopping this season as many of the collections offer effortless approaches that can easily mix and match with what we already have.
I have gone back through the many collections that hit the runways last fall for the Spring 2023 collections and narrowed down the trends worth investing in to seven, and while that may not seem like many, the types of trends I honed in on are more conceptual and adaptable to your wardrobe based on how you want to wear it. For example, one trend that to me is a timeless way to dress is Neo-Minimalism/Effortless/Highly Functional. What does that look like exactly will depend upon what functionality you need in your daily life, but no doubt it includes separates that are easily mix-and-matchable which means jackets, pants, tops and details that can be worn with more than one item and complement many different colors you already have and continue to add to your wardrobe.
I don’t know about you, but with each passing year since I stepped away from teaching and into my own schedule as a writer and blogger, I am all about effortless without sacrificing the style, and what collections give us this year feels very approachable, tailorable to how each of us wants to live without the fuss and abundant with so much beautiful style.
I have hand-picked more than 90 individual clothing items and accessories for you to peruse below. Each can be directly shopped by clicking on the link (hover over the item that catches your eye) and then you will be taken to the online shop to learn more and purchase as you desire.
AND, don’t forget, when you find something you love, but the price isn’t right or you’re not ready to purchase just yet, be sure to use KarmaNow, which will alert you whenever your item goes on sale. You can tailor it to a specific price, and the size you are waiting for.
Now to give you a taste of what spoke to me and conveys the theme of the season are three items below – one a bit loose and oversized, another more tailored, yet timeless and yet another, while an investment, will ensure you look trés chic whether strolling the sidewalks in Paris or your hometown.
