From Office to Play: Building a Core Spring Wardrobe

4.07.2010 WRITTEN BY Ashley T+P Blog Central

With spring officially upon us, now is the time to start creating a lighter, brighter wardrobe. But how do you dress spring appropriate for both work and pleasure? Here are a few core pieces that every style savvy professional should have in her closet.

A lightweight jacket: For women who venture between work meetings, play dates and happy hours throughout the week, it’s a essential to have a lightweight jacket that’s easy to move around in and dress up or down. Choose a fit that’s tailored enough for the office, but can still look casual when paired with relaxed pants. A linen boyfriend blazer will do the trick, or a cropped coat in a pretty pastel.

Show stopping accessories: Another easy way to give office attire a dash of dazzle is by adding fun and funky springtime accessories. Pearls and layered necklaces are huge for the current season, and adding them to your work look makes heading to happy hour in style a breeze.

Chic chambray: A top trend of the season is chambray. You can see this style in the form of outerwear, lightweight denim or menswear inspired button-downs. Chambray is absolutely work appropriate and can be worn with pencil skirts, dress pants and blazers. When heading out to dinner after work, make your chambray scream chic by adding a fun floral scarf and a sexy pair of heels. Chambray is also great as weekend wear and match divinely with rolled-up khakis and boat shoes.

The best spring looks are flirty, fun and functional, so don’t be shy to add a touch of sunshine to your work/play wardrobe.
