Winter is gradually coming to an end or so we hope. Here in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) where I live, winter can stretch way into spring and with the amount of snow we are having right now plus the amount of sub temps days, this might end up being one of our worst winters yet. Nonetheless, it's not too early to start prepping for spring. The first step in doing this is to do a closet overhaul and donating or throwing out items that are no longer needed or useful, then buying those closet essentials that are trendy and affordable to help us stay stylish all through the year. Below are the items I wish to add to my closet this winter and some of the items are great too to give out as gifts to girlfriends, sisters, daughters or Moms. Let's not forget Mothers' day is coming up too.
Snake Print pleated Skirt:
This is a print that is a big trend this season and when you combine it with pleats, nothing can be so edgy or stylish for any fashionista lady. The snake print skirt can be dressed up or down for work and for play and if you need some style inspiration on how to style it for Church or other formal events like weddings, Christenings, check out this post here. The featured skirt in my wish list is from H.M
A good pair of colorful pump in a color of your choice is great for sprucing up your spring and summer wardrobe. If you are one who loves to wear neutral shoes all the time, this might be the time to do something different and by infusing some color into your wardrobe. A colorful pair of shoes elevates an outfit and your style. Check out the featured purple pumps here.
I love a good graphic tee especially when it has a great message or inspiration on it. A graphic tee can be paired with a blazer and denim and sneakers for a casual look like going to the mall or a day out with the kids. A graphic tee tucked into a skirt and paired with a blazer and a nice pair of shoes, can also work for a casual meeting or evening Church service or meeting up with friends. Check out the featured tee here.
This is a unique kind of earring post that is supposed to help with wearing heavy earrings and make earrings sit upright and comfortable on the ears. As you might know, most women wear statement earrings more in the spring and summer months and this earrings lifters should be a closet essential. Magicbax can be purchased from major retailers and online; just make sure to read the reviews before you make any purchase. This featured piece is from Target.
A pencil skirt has been a closet staple for ages and if you do not own one yet, you can add one to your closet this winter. Pencil skirts are very chic and lady-like and they work great for almost any kind of styling. You can tuck in a blouse into a pencil skirt or you can wear a blouse over it. You can layer them with a blazer or throw a tee over them. When you use stylish accessories like belts, pumps, sandals, mules, purses, waist bags, pencil skirts can work for any occasion. Check out the featured skirt here.
An embellished pumps is a good addition to the closet in preparation for all those events and parties that would come up later in the year. It is always best to get a pair now when organizing the closet for spring. Embellished pumps come in different price range and though the trend for this year is "feathers embellishment," you can get pumps or shoes embellished with bows, studs, rhinestones, flowers and crystals. The embellished glitter pumps featured ere can be found at DSW.
