Graphic tees are always a staple as they can be worn in so many different ways.

As spring approaches, tee shirts can easily go from being worn under a puffy coat to on full display when it finally reaches 50 degrees outside. A fun design or saying can boost outfit attitude with ease and at a low price. White or pastel colored shirts work best as they look light and less “busy” despite sparkles or logos.

Jean jackets are a casual staple, and this February you can upgrade your denim with different colors and even fabrics. Denim on denim will feel less “Canadian Tuxedo” with brightly colored jean jackets, without being too overwhelming. To stay simple, opt for details or designs on blue denim. Layered over sweaters keeps these jackets winter-ready, but when the the temperature rises these jackets will keep you prepared for spring.

Cat-Eye sunglasses are a timeless classic. For more of a contemporary feel, opt for bright colors or translucent frames. Smaller cat-eyes in tortoiseshell or black have a Parisian street style vibe and can pair well with any outfit. Trade in the clout classes for cat eyes in preparation for spring!

Splurge:

Reminisce on NYE and keep the sparkles on year-round. Upgrade your slip-style with sequins that make it easy to go light on accessorizing. Sequin’s that are double sided also make this splurge seem minimal as you’re basically getting three dresses for the price of one. Flip the colors, or even make your own designs on the dress by simply moving around the sequins for extra personalization.
