7 Spring essentials

Spring is just around the corner which means we can finally store away our winter coats, cashmere sweaters and UGG boots. It's time for a spring update! The new collections are coming in, and now that the weather is getting better, it's time to review your wardrobe and see which essentials you're missing. For this spring, I picked out a few items which I think are staples for the coming months. Happy shopping!

Striped sweater
A classic which you can never go wrong with, and can be worn with pretty much anything: white jeans, denim, a black skirt or leggings in case you're having a cosy Sunday. Zara as well as COS have some pretty neat sweaters in stock at the moment.

Boyfriend jeans
Something I've never owned are boyfriend jeans, but I think this spring we can't avoid this trend. The idea has grown on me and I'm on the lookout for the perfect pair. Can be worn with both sneakers and heels; easy to dress up or down.

Leather jacket
Leather jackets are my favourite spring item. They always look stylish and can be worn with dresses to toughen up the look or just with nice jeans. The jackets below are all real leather, which I think is always worth the investment. The middle one is my favourite!

Different kinds of skinnies
In terms of bottoms there are three spring essentials in my opinion: cargo pants, white skinny jeans and leather trousers. March and April can still have some colder nights, and that's when leather skinnies are perfect to wear with a nice top and blazer. Both cargo pants and white skinnies look cool with other white items. I love a total white look!

Denim jacket
Denim is literally all over the place this season! You can wear denim in any shape and form, but a denim jacket will always be a classic. Nice for both spring and summer, especially op top of a white dress.

For wishful thinking
Yes.. In case we have a really warm spring this year, you can start looking at cute dresses. White lace is always good but why not experiment with the denim trend and go for a denim dress too? The cutest dresses are always gone by the time summer comes around so if you fall in love with one, I say "buy it!"

Spring sneakers
When it comes to shoes this spring I'm loving cool sneakers in different colours and fabrics such as ponyhair, mesh, leather and lace. I would love to get my hands on a pair of Valentino sneakers because they are all perfect, but oh so not budget-proof. For this spring, I'm thinking about getting a white pair of sneakers (Stan Smith) and also a red pair (haven't found the ones yet). Which are your favourite ones? I couldn't pick!
