How to Mix New Spring Styles without Being Too Trendy or Spending Too Much MoneyHuge thanks to Gap and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post

Spring is around the corner, and if you want to incorporate some new styles into your wardrobe, let’s talk about how! I’m partnering with Gap and ShopStyle Collective to talk through some new styles for spring and how you can mix those spring styles into your outfits—without being ultra trendy or having to buy a whole new wardrobe!

And BTW, Gap is running some SALES right now that you should definitely take advantage of! You can get an EXTRA 10% off regular priced items with code PERK and an EXTRA 50% off sale styles with code MORE until 2/21! You can also 50% off tees, jeans, and sweats through the weekend!

Gap’s items have such a great balance of being classic and current which makes it super easy to incorporate new spring styles into your existing wardrobe! I also love that their pieces are relaxed and effortlessly stylish. Also, Gap offers a variety of sizing, including straight, tall, petite, plus, and maternity options. They also have programs towards sustainability efforts, such as making products responsibly with their Washwell program which reduces water usage and making garments with 100% organically grown cotton or 100% recycled polyester which reduces waste. They’re doing some great things!

Now onto some spring styles that you can easily mix into your outfits this season!

SIZING INFO: I’m 5’6” and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

1. Bright colors in classic silhouettes
I’m loving all the fresh, bright colors out there for spring! One really easy way to add a dash of spring trends without a huge investment is to pair colorful pieces in classic silhouettes with your favorite staples. For instance, above, I’m wearing a fresh green sweater in a fairly classic, relaxed fit, and I paired it with boyfriend jeans. The color of the sweater gives your outfit an updated vibe—plus it’s just a fun, happy pop that brightens your mood!

I love how the texture of this sweater and the relaxed cut give this sweater an easygoing vibe. It comes in 5 colors and in regular, tall, and petite lengths. Find it HERE. I wear size S.

Also, I love boyfriend jeans in the spring, and if you’re in the market, this pair is fairly soft and comfortable. You can pair these with t-shirts, sweaters, and sweatshirts for casual spring looks, or you can dress them up a little with a nice top or a blouse! They’re available in sizes 23 to 35 and in regular, tall, and petite lengths, HERE. I wear size 27.

2. Mix in straight leg cuts
We all know straight leg cuts have been having their moment, so to update your wardrobe for this spring, incorporate those into your wardrobe. Here, I paired these Cloud Light Straight Leg Pants with a classic striped tee.

And OHMIGOSH friends, these pants are AWESOME!!! These FEEL LIKE SWEATPANTS but they look more polished! They are SOFT and COMFY with a super cozy fuzzy inside, and the waistband is fully elastic—seriously like a great pair of sweatpants. But they look more like a pair of “regular” pants in certain colors. I’m a fan!

One note is that they are a tad see-through in the cream color, so if you end up trying them, definitely test how opaque they are. Plus, wrinkles show a little bit more in the lighter color. They are not see-through in the other colors, and wrinkles stay a little more hidden. These come in 4 colors and in regular, tall, and petite lengths and sizes XS to XXL. Check them all out HERE! I’m wearing size S above but later realized I actually prefer size XS. The waist still fits comfortably in XS, but the legs and hips are a tad more fitted. 👌🏽 Would definitely size down one, if not TWO sizes!

This striped tee has a cool, vintage vibe that would look classic with jeans but looks especially fresh here with straight leg pants. Great tee to have in your wardrobe for easy, casual looks! It’s available in regular, tall, and petite lengths, HERE. Another great striped tee is a classic black and white one, HERE. That one is really stretchy and works well fully tucked into bottoms, as it fits close to the body. You can also wear it untucked and knotted over pants instead. It’s available in regular, tall, and petite lengths.

Top: Gap (exact—wearing size M; another striped tee)
Denim Jacket: (similar)
Pants: Gap (exact—wearing size S but prefer XS)

There are soooo many types of straight leg pants out there, from jeans to other casual pants to comfy and cozy ones like the ones I’m wearing here, so you should definitely be able to find some that work for you and your lifestyle. In the widget at the bottom of this post, I rounded up some other straight leg pairs of pants and jeans, so find some there. They’ll instantly help freshen up your style!

3. Go for a midi dress!
While knee-length dresses are classic and always look stylish, midi dresses look especially fresh right now.

This dress is ADORABLE and easy to wear! The bodice is stretchy, so it has a forgiving fit, and the rest of it floats away from your body. The dress is fully lined also, which helps smooth over lumps as well as keeps you confident that nothing is showing through. Top it off with a denim jacket or a moto jacket for a cute statement-making spring look that would be great for a birthday party, meal out with friends, and any other special occasion where you want to look cute and easygoing! It’s available in regular, tall, and petite lengths and sizes XS to XXL. Check it out HERE. I’m wearing size S.

Those are three super easy ways to mix spring styles into your outfits. Will you be wearing any of these?
