5 KEY SPRING PIECES THAT YOU'LL WEAR THROUGH FALL

5 KEY SPRING PIECES THAT YOU'LL WEAR THROUGH FALL

in Partnership with my Friends at TJX

Spring is here and it's time to refresh those wardrobes! It doesn't take an overhaul to update, a new silhouette here, a pop of colour there is enough to update your look for the season. Here are some of the key elements of the season. Photography, Anna Lisa Sang.

You know it's spring when romantic floral dresses, like the one above, start to make an appearance. The frothy mint colour is a sweet option that works well day to day with a fitted tee underneath. Wear it through the summer – to all of the showers, weddings, and other festivities under the stars – and again in the fall with a loose knit sweater and boots.

An oversize trench is a fab addition any stylish wardrobe. This works right now for drizzly days and cool evenings and you'll still grab for it come October.

An oversize white dress shirt, complete with interesting details – like the lowered back hemline and exaggerated slit – is one of the most versatile trend pieces of the season. Dressed up and down, this is an item that you'll love for many seasons.

There's been much hype over millennial pink but all shades are in the spotlight. The addition of the colour, from any part of the spectrum,  is a cheerful addition to a look. I fell in love with this satiny jumpsuit as a comfy-as-pyjamas/throw on and go option.
