Top 5 Spring Must Haves

by Fashiontandf

My style collective gal pals and I are sharing our top 5 must have spring items for 2023. You’ll be able to see a total of 20 recommendations once you blog hop to each! How cool is that?! This month I’m sharing my absolute favorites and recommendations from White House Black Market (WHBM)! My top choices are all classics that will easily be in your wardrobe for years to come, can be worn across seasons and offer many styling options.

Grab your favorite drink and have a watch as I share why I’ve chosen my top 5 (well, I might have slide in a few extra items…sometimes I just can’t help myself!) and how to style each item.

Grommet Trucker Denim Jacket

The classic denim jacket with a more feminine fit gets a style update with front grommet lace-up embellishments. The lace up style is figure flattering and will give you a more defined waistline! Plus details always add interest; and you know I’m a sucker for all the details! This modern look skips the usual boxiness and stiffness of denim, so you can toss it on and feel confident. Wear this jean jacket over dresses, or your favorite dark wash denim.

Floral-Print Tie-Neck Blouse

So elegant, this floral-print tie-neck blouse is sheer and sophisticated, just the thing for spring events. Dress it up or down to suit your style. It comes with a matching camisole for perfect coverage. You can see that I’ve paired it with blue dress pants making it a great work look for me. (Sorry for my stocking feet fitting room try on but my boots didn’t quit look right!). However, it can easily be worn with your favorite jeans. The model paired the top with cargo pants! Cute all three ways!

Here is another beautiful top that pairs great with these pants. The lace and flutter sleeves are so feminine! The crewneck lace top features feminine ruffle details at the armholes, and a flattering double-layered effect. This sleeveless lace top will add a touch of elegance when paired with your favorite jeans. It’s also perfect by itself or layered under a jacket.

WHBM® Contrast Signature Blazer

The latest WHBM® Signature blazer gets an update with white contrast trim. Made with stretch fabric that moves with you for all-day comfort and style. Designer details, including the fashion illustration on the lining, give this an extra special spin. Show it off by simply rolling the sleeves to expose the chic lady sketch drawing on your cuff. A slim fit keeps this menswear item for the ladies and flattering no matter what you pair it with, whether jeans on the weekend (which I’m pictured in) or our matching comfort stretch pants for wherever you’re working. This classic blazer will be in your closet for years to come and will always be in style!

WHBM® Contrast Signature Blazer

I think the matching pants really complete the work ready look and you know how much I adore a matching set! Add a pop of color in the top and shoes if you’d like or stick with a solid white as shown. Plus you can style both pieces separately giving you so many styling options!

High-Rise Contrast Floral Straight Jeans

Beautiful in black + white, WHBM updated the white high-rise straight jeans with a feminine black floral design that sets them—and anyone who wears them—apart. The high-rise waist, accentuated by the contrasting black waistband gives them a flattering, shapely fit you’ll love, while the black stripe on the side of each leg creates a lengthening effect. These jeans are also a perfect match with the blazer. As stated in my video, I had my eye on these jeans the minute I spotted them in the back room before they hit the sale floor!

Embroidered Poplin Shirt

The classic poplin shirt gets a feminine style update with a floral embroidery design at the shoulders and sleeves. I love how the beautiful details makes this button down shirt far more interesting and perfect for fall! You might recall I shared it with you in white. I think the black looks great with the High-Rise Contrast Floral Straight Jeans. Recently, I wore the shirt with a pair of plaid pants (from my closet) and black and white heels to work.

Flutter-Sleeve V-Neck Top

By day or night, this flutter-sleeve V-neck top adds elegance to your wardrobe, made from sleek satin fabric. It softens casual and career looks with its fluidity and flowing sleeves, just as perfect with jeans as it is with dress pants or a skirt. You can see it looks great with my dark wash blue jeans as well as the High-Rise Contrast Floral Straight Jeans. The v neck is figure flattering. Every gal needs a black top in her wardrobe that can be worn with literally anything!

Flutter-Sleeve V-Neck Top

That concludes my round up for must haves this spring! However, I hope you can see that these pieces can easily be worn year round, styled so many different ways, worn to work and worn casually! As a Social Stylist, I’m happy to assist you with any questions you might have; and I would love to style you either virtually or in person. Lastly, I had the absolute delight of styling my step-daughter Tiffany! I was so elated that she willingly tried many things out of her norm and discovered some new things that she loved and purchased. Tiffany used to have a clothing subscription, which she has canceled. She’s now calling me “Her Fix”! I love that! Here’s a text she sent me afterwards:

“I tried on all the clothes for my roommates (her husband and daughter age 13) and they loved everything! Thanks again! Best shopping day of my life!” This made my day and is my purpose: helping each women I style look and feel her absolute best!

“Stephanie (her girlfriend) said she wants a stylist day too. I told her to contact you. She has a big booty and needs big booty help!” This made me laugh! As a big booty gal myself, I totally understand the challenges and am up to solving this fashion equation!
