I found an incredibly useful wardrobe checklist on Who What Wear this afternoon. They've created a printable checklist with trend-driven updates for spring combined with basics for the perfect 70/30 closet. 70% being the meat and potatoes, 30 is icing and fluff. It's similar to a list I posted myself last year, which I've been hacking away at. Since I'm currently working on my wishlist for spring and deciding what I want to look for, I thought I'd work through this list with a few items from Shopbop.
First thing: Jeans. You know I'm pretty smitten with my Hudson skinnies, so my basic denim won't need updating for a bit. I recently purchased the Barbara, which has a deliciously high waist that's really comfortable for work (and they make muffin tops disappear!). But for the trend, I love these flared, high-waisted J Brand jeans. I always think flared jeans and blazers look unbelievably cool for spring.
Another trend that caught my eye was the lace-up gladiator flats. I've been DYING to try out the Stuart Weitzman gladiators for a while now, but I'm worried they will be too small for my calves. A lace up option could be the solution to that! This shorter gladiator from Dolce Vita is a little less intimidating than the SW version, even with the awesome print. For the basic, I'm 1000% against flip flops. Sorry, they're just not a good look anywhere but the beach. If you can put on flip flops, you can put on a nice leather sandal. Of course, Shopbop has a large selection of flat sandals, but I am fully obsessed with this studded pair from Rebecca Minkoff. While the studs are anything but basic, I think they'd go with almost anything (and add a little edge!).
One of the basics I'm still searching for is the perfect Little White Dress this year. I got a good casual jersey dress last year, but I've really been wanting something in a dressier fabric. I'm still not quite sure what I want, but browsing through a few of those dresses gave me a few ideas! What's on your spring wishlist this year?
This post is a collab with Shopbop, who somehow has managed to convince me to spend more money with them than I'm actually making from these posts. Seriously, I just got the cutest dress from there. Thanks for supporting the brands that make my closet possible.
