I am a strong believer in having staple pieces in a wardrobe. Whether it’s a classic trench for fall, a stylish pair of winter boots or a little black dress that is suitable for any occasion, there are certain pieces that any true Fashionista’s closet needs. When I saw this Fashionista sporting a cute spring look, I immediately loved her denim jacket. Spring is a time full of sundresses and shorts; adding a cute denim jacket over them is the perfect complement for a spring outfit. Purchasing a denim jacket as a spring staple piece is definitely a smart fashion investment. I also loved how this Fashionista wore a variety of neutrals that still looked light and airy enough for spring weather. Her outfit is a nice example of how to transition neutral, winter wardrobe pieces into another season.
