Styled by Jenni: New Springtime Essentials
After a winter that seemed like it would never end, there’s nothing quite like a closet refresh. This spring, we’re looking towards polished looks with a cozy factor and a new, optimistic pop of color. For tips on nailing that springtime feeling, we turn to Jenni, who shares her cardinal rules for springtime style.
Always bring a sweater.
Spring isn’t all blue skies forever, so you’ll need to prepare for the occasional inclement weather. Simple to wear and easy to keep on hand, cotton sweaters are a smart investment for their light feel and breathable natural knit. When you’re aiming for first dibs on fresh spring flowers at the farmer’s market, keep a sweater tied around your waist or shoulders.

Stick to something old (we mean classic) and something blue (navy, actually).
Stripes are always a good look, and perfect for transitional weather. The nautical vibe is reminiscent of a sunny day, and a subtle pattern goes a long way when it comes to grounding an outfit together. Pair a striped top with solid dark navy (the new black, we’re calling it!) for a balance of gamine grace. Crisp, cool, and tailored, our cotton pants, blazer, and trench are perfect for taking on workweeks with a renewed sense of purpose.
Knitwear is getting whimsical, and this fuchsia sweater is playful, upbeat and optimistic. Consider fuchsia millennial pink’s much bolder cousin—a bright hue with a touch of blue notes makes for an attractive pop of saturated color. Pair this vibrant shade with the new leopard sandal if you’re feeling bold, or scale back and go for quiet confidence with a light denim jean and natural mule.
