When spring weekends roll around, it’s finally time to head outdoors and soak in the warm weather! Whether you’re heading on a mini road trip or playing with your pup in the park, it’s important to have a few staples in your closet for when the weather heats up. We’re having an exceptionally warm February in California this year and I was caught off guard! I found myself scrambling to restock my shorts and T-shirts. Luckily, this Fashionista was well prepared with three key pieces that can be mixed and matched for spring.

Having a good stock of T-shirts and tanks is an absolute MUST when the temperatures rise. Even though it’s tempting to shop post-winter sales, remind yourself that there are a few staples you’ll need right away. These pieces don’t have to be super expensive so have fun with them! It’s important to have a variety of cuts, colors and graphics so your wardrobe stays fresh. Brandy Melville is a great go-to for shopping these cool, versatile pieces without breaking the bank. (Stars like Kendall Jenner love it too, so you’ll be getting a deal on celebrity style). I recommend springing for three key pieces first: A funky graphic T-shirt, a plain white or gray T-shirt and, like this Fashionista, a simple fitted tank!

While this Fashionista pairs her tank with on-trend dolphin shorts, it would also look great with linen pants, a maxi skirt or high-waisted jeans. The options are endless and it’s the perfect look for layering. She adds extra playfulness with a pair of crisp white sneakers, embracing one of spring’s top trends. Finally, she adds funky details with personal jewelry. Spring is the perfect time to pile on all of your favorite friendship bracelets, beaded strands or leather bands!

One Simple Change: What if things cool off at night you ask? Everyone is loving softened versions of the moto jacket for spring. This jacket has the super-structured form of your favorite leather jacket, but with a much cozier twist. Simply throw it on over your shorts and tank, and you’ll look ready to grab a bite for dinner!
