The 5 spring fashion essentials you need

by Sulvey Polanco

Spring into these fashion trends.

No doubt, it’s been a long and harsh winter. Everything may seem grey and dull, but it’s almost time to put winter behind us. Luckily, the weather will start going into the positives very soon. Since spring is just around the corner we can FINALLY ditch the layers of parkas, hats, gloves, snow-pants and scarves. It’s time to get out of the winter blues, and these colourful essentials will definitely help.

Check out my list of spring fashion essentials that you need in your closet ASAP:

1. Denim Jacket

Sadly, it’s not summer just yet so you should still wear a light jacket. Don’t worry, you can ditch the parka and opt for a cute denim jacket instead. You likely have a jean jacket as a staple in your wardrobe anyways so don’t forget to let it shine this spring. It’s light, cute and can easily be added to any outfit—a definite must-have for spring.

2. Straw Hat

The sun is SHINING! This straw hat will not only protect your head from the sun’s rays but will also add a dash of colour to your otherwise dull outfit! You’ll definitely be exuding spring beach vibes with this hat on and you’ll be feeling bad and boujee.

3. Colourful Skirts

A colourful skirt is just what you need to greet spring. With the weather warming up, you may not want to touch those pants you’ve been wearing ALL winter. Instead, show off the colours of spring with a flowy skirt! If you don’t have the funds to go to Coachella, but still want to look like a music festival goddess then this skirt is the one for you.

The pop your outfit needs is all in your accessory choice. A bright pair of statement earrings will surely take your outfit from drab to fab! These floral, tassel earrings are the perfect accessory to compliment your spring outfit and make you stand out.

5. Hair Ties

Hair ties seem like such a simple part of your outfit that can easily be looked past, but they shouldn’t be! There are so many options. Remember, sun’s out, buns out! Add cute scrunchies or bandanas to your hair for a quick and easy way to make your hair slay all day!
