Contrary to the snow on the ground and sub-Arctic temperatures that have been plaguing Denver, Spring is just around the corner! In the spirit of the season, it’s time to breathe new life into your wardrobe by stepping it up with these sweet-yet-sassy Spring basics.
Buttons Know Best!
Over sized button downs are a bare necessity for this Spring! Pair one with your favorite skinnies, cute earrings, and some strappy sandals to create a casual feminine look, or leave it open over a contrasting mini dress as shown here. (forever21.com, $1Print me pretty:

Bold, artistic prints are perfect for day or night! Wear them with a cropped denim jacket or solo with some neutral pumps. (charlottlerusse.com, $29.99)
April showers bring May flowers, but a coral top will make traffic stop! This orangey hue will brighten up any outfit and looks good on everyone! Be it a bright shade like the sweater shown here, or a lighter, more natural tone, this color is a guaranteed hit. (tillys.com, $22.99)
Perplexed by Peplum? Don’t be!
These uniquely-styled skirts, dresses, and tops are a simple staple that flatters nearly every shape. If you have a pin-straight frame, the chic tear of fabric that sits at your natural waist line will create the illusion of curves; if you’re curvier, it will hide any tummy lumps and flatter you shape even more!

Spring is here, so it’s time to create a new wardrobe and try something new!
