How To: Refresh Your Casual Look with Key Spring Styles You Can Start Wearing Now

With winter days still looming ahead for most of the country, it can be hard to relate to all the pretty new spring clothes out in our favorite stores. But, oh, how it would feel so good to be able to start wearing some of those things, right? Well, that’s where we come in. This week we’ve been taking a couple of key pieces that can easily be worn now and in the warmer months that will get here eventually. And today, we’re doing just that with two of our favorite casual pieces. With a few simple changes and layers, you can start incorporating some great spring style into your wardrobes now. And it will not just look appropriate, it will look fresh and modern.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our favorite transitional looks for work or after 5 this week, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

KEY Transitional Item #1. Flare jeans are making a big spring flash, and we love that they’re something we can start wearing right away. If you haven’t tried FRAME yet, they are a new favorite of ours – and this higher rise flare is at the very top of our list. The fit is contemporary, but easier (more like Joe’s or Citizens of Humanity than Rag & Bone), and boy, do these slim. The clean, dark wash that has the slightest whiskering, combined with the higher rise that sits just below the belly button, and flare that effortlessly balances your hips and butt…what can we say? Oh, we can also say that they have great stretch to them. They’re ideal. Sizes are limited through the ‘shop it button, so if they are out, try Saks Fifth Avenue. (Note: Saks Fifth Avenue’s image is less accurate, as the jeans are too big on that model. The fit is more accurate to Shopbop’s image that we’re showing here.)

Wear Now Coordinating Item. We love the look of a tucked in shirt or blouse with these jeans. The neat silhouette shows off the flare of the jeans and elongates the already lengthened look of your legs. It gives it a very 70’s feel. Joie’s uses a vibrant color combination of lavender purples and pink reds for just the right ‘wear-now’ color that will sail right into spring. It’s an easy, menswear fit so you’ll love wearing it untucked with skinny jeans, too. This voile shirt is lightweight and a great balance to the darker wash of the jeans.

J. Crew - Collection Cashmere Boyfriend Cardigan Sweater
Wear Now Coordinating Item. Layer a longer cardigan for comfort and warmth, while it’s still downright freezing out. This cashmere J. Crew boyfriend cardigan keeps the menswear inspiration going and has a polished feel that is still completely casual. Wear it open to still show off the higher waist, or button it up and add a skinny belt to play up the retro feel. Either way, it will all look great with your favorite heeled booties or wedges for a brunch with friends.

Wear Later Coordinating Item. Come spring time, can’t you just see yourself shopping at the farmer’s market, ice coffee in hand, wearing this Free People top with our featured flare jeans? Even if that’s not your life, you’ll feel like it is when you put on this easy, and subtly sexy, top. The elastic hits just at the waist, where the top of the jeans start, playing up the higher rise. The flounce around the hips show off the long, lean look of the legs, while the elbow-length sleeves and looser fit in the body keep this shirt from crossing the line to too youthful. It’s just feminine springtime fun. (FYI, the straps can be removed.)

Wear Later Coordinating Item. The slightly retro feel, and loads of comfort, make this Tory Burch wedge the perfect spring and summer sandal – especially to wear with flare jeans, since they’ll give you some height but are still completely walkable.

KEY Transitional Item #2. There are a lot of options on how to wear this Three Dots top, and we love them all. Wear it closed as the picture shows, which creates the perfect cowl neckline and loose fit that is simple and stylish (and has been a post-holiday lifesaver for some of us, since it’s so effortlessly concealing). It can also be worn unbuttoned for a versatile, open drapey cardigan. The high quality jersey fabric has a wide rib to it and is weighty enough to wear now, but will take you into spring and cool evenings ahead seamlessly.

Wear Now Coordinating Item. Joie’s new denim line has an easy, contemporary fit (think Joe's or Citizens of Humanity) and these skinnies are the perfect balance to the loose easy top. They have tons of comfy stretch and the non-distressed dark wash looks crisp with the navy and white stripe. The mid-rise sits below the belly button, a perfect spot to prevent dreaded muffin-top.

Wear Now Coordinating Item. As we initially mentioned, this top can also be worn open – there are a couple of buttons along the neckline. And for that, you’ll need to just add a simple white tank top. Three Dots loose fit and curved hemline work beautifully with the ease of the open cardigan. If your size is sold out through the 'shop it' button, try Zappos.

Wear Now Coordinating Item. Since it is still wintertime, a tall boot is just the shoe to complete this look. The flat rubber sole is comfortable for running errands and the skinny jeans slip in to them with ease. Frye’s distressed brown leather is casual, and just gets better with age.

NYDJ - Ami Zip Detail Colored Stretch Super Skinny Jeans
Wear Later Coordinating Item. Once the weather starts warming up, instead of wearing dark jeans to play into the dark blue of the Three Dots top, punch up the tonal color with NYDJ’s Riviera blue stretchy skinny jeans. NYDJ offers other great colors (through the ‘shop it’ button), but these are our top pick. Keeping all the colors in the same family has more of a modern, yet timeless feel. As with all NYDJ jeans, they are made with their slimming technology and you can feel good about yourself by sizing down. This one is blowing out - try NYDJ's website if you can't find your size through the 'shop it' button.
