Lucky for you, maintaining a chic look has nothing to do with overhauling your closet each season. It’s all about making little tweaks, like scoring a few trends that work with what you’ve got. This spring, it will be super-easy—as many of the new pieces work wonders with staples. We’ll show you how to create seven outfits that are perfect for next season and won’t blow your budget.
You Have: A White Blouse
Buy: Star-Printed Denim
Star prints are having a moment, and it’s not a trend you’ll regret buying into. Take these jeans. You’ll wear them all season, and summer after summer—if only on the Fourth of July. Pair them with a plain white blouse or a pop of color. (They wear like a neutral!)
You Have: A Feminine Shell
Buy: An Updated Suit
A failsafe way to get bang for your buck? Score pieces that represent more than one trend. Think feminine suiting in of-the-moment coral or a little lace top with a high-low hem. (Worn together? All the better!)
You Have: Tuxedo-Striped Denim
Buy: A Bold Floral Top
Like the masculine-feminine trend? You’ll love this! One of the latest must-wear looks includes decidedly-“girly” elements and borrows from the boys (and last season!): To get it right, start with tuxedo-inspired pants and top them off with a bright floral print.
