March is one of those odd in-between months. One day it’s sunny. The next it’s raining (at least here in Southern California). You may find that you’re often wearing your spring/summer clothes and your winter clothes, and neither feels quite right. What a perfect time to organize a few March wardrobe essentials, right?
If you’re like most people, there’s an almost intense longing for spring colors, fabrics, and looks. It’s the perfect time and opportunity to add a few essentials to your wardrobe. They’ll help you bridge the gap as you make your way into summer.
Here are my top picks for your March wardrobe essentials…
#1 A Long Cardigan
A long cardigan is a cardigan that sits at or below your tushy. They can be full length and reach your knees, or even longer and go to your heels. Look for one that will highlight your wardrobe.
For example, if you wear jeans or pants then a long almost floor length cardigan may look excellent. If you wear dresses or skirts, then a cardigan that hits the bottom edge of your hem looks polished.
As for colors… it’s almost spring, so have fun. Pastels, bright colors, and even patterns can add some vitality to your wardrobe. Look for cardigans that are in a material that wears well and can get you through the seasons. Cashmere is an investment, and if taken care of can last for decades.
#2 A Swing Sweater
A swing sweater is a sweater that has a relaxed shape that’s comfortable and stylish. With a flare at the waist, it flatters every body type and moves fluidly as you move. Swing sweaters can be worn with jeans, dress or casual pants, and slim skirts. They usually have a crew or boat neck and are in a light and flowy fabric.
#3 A White Shoe
White shoes may seem like they have limited usability. However, they’re the perfect accessory to get you through the spring and into the summer. Strappy or close-toed, you decide. You can even spice them up with a little bling like metal studs or gemstones.
#4 A Little Lace
Lace is in this season and it’s quite versatile. You can find dresses and skirts with beautiful lace overlays. Lace tops are also lovely. They look great under a suit coat or blazer, or a denim or leather jacket. They’re that versatile!
#5 A Cropped Jacket
Spring is the time when you always want to have a jacket with you. A cropped jacket, one that sits just above or at the hip-bone, adds a bit of structure to your outfit. Look for one in a light color like dusty rose, lavender, or blue. It can add interest, fun, and color to your wardrobe.
March Wardrobe Essentials
Finally, if you love accessories then a slim fitness tracker, a statement necklace, or a new handbag in a spring color are all great options. One or two new pieces this March can really add life to your wardrobe!
