Style Guide: The Best Casual + Chic Looks For Spring

While the spring season has officially arrived, the weather has yet to cooperate – but that shouldn’t stop you from mapping out all the fresh new outfits you can wear once the temps actually do heat up.

The best part about spring weather is the fashion of course, and we especially love the casual nature due to more time spent outdoors. But by "casual" we definitely do not mean looking sloppy or drab. Quite the opposite in fact! We’ve got some handy tips to keep you looking super chic in your casual looks for spring, so prepare to take notes...

Spring Style: You Can Never (ever EVER) Go Wrong With Denim + White

Ahhh, white— the freshest of the neutrals and your best bet for looking and feeling cool come spring and summer. When in doubt, opt for the classic combo of pairing white with denim. The options are truly endless when it comes to this duo, so dare to mix it up!

You can go for the classic white shirt with denim jeans - or any denim bottoms for that matter - or balance out the femininity of a little white dress with your favorite denim jacket. If you really want to play it up, you can do the reverse and try a denim top with white bottoms. Whichever way you decide wear it, know that this combo is a foolproof way of looking cool this spring.

Spring Style: Layer With A Blazer 

Add instant structure to your look by throwing on a blazer over your casual spring ensemble. And don’t think that blazers are just for the office - you can definitely pull these off for a lunch date or running errands. Aside from the instant confidence you will feel when wearing a blazer, it also makes for the perfect layering piece during spring's fluctuating temps.

You can mix your look up by either going for a bold color or a more toned down and patterned version. Gray plaid blazers were all the rage last fall and it may still be the case this season, but feel free to step out of the trend and go for something more daring like a bright yellow or colorfully striped alternative!

Spring Style: Crop-Top Duo

For you most confident fashionistas, we absolutely love fun and flirty matching co-ords such as a crop-top duo. Wearing classy, coordinating pieces is a fabulous way to usher in spring – and it’s even more fab if you manage to scoop up a set that shows off your best assets like that taut tummy or your beautiful shoulders. 

This crop-top duo as seen on Lauren below is a perfect example of keeping your casual look a little more playful with some ruffles and flare bottoms!
