Spring doesn’t always have to be about BRIGHTS and FLORALS! (Though, don’t get me wrong…I love both of those.) I found a bunch of pieces from Target that are mostly neutrals (except the yellow trench–couldn’t resist) and that don’t involve florals. While they may not scream, “SPRING!!!” I think they’re fantastic for spring! You can mix and match them with more colorful pieces in your closet (bottoms, cardigans, accessories, flats), or keep a neutral spring palette. Ain’t nothin’ wrong with that!
Option 1 – This top is thicker than your normal striped cotton tee and holds structure. I pass by it all the time at Target having to exercise will power and resist. Not easy to resist, because it’s a pretty great top!
Option 2 – The eyelet detailing takes this sweatshirt up ten notches! Have the comfort of a sweatshirt without looking like you rolled out of bed. Pair this with boyfriend jeans and Converse sneakers for the weekend, or pair it with colorful floral pants or a colorful printed skirt to get a little fancier.
Option 3 – This comes in a variety of solid colors and I think one more pattern. I love love love flowy, breezy tanks for the spring, and they carry well into summer. You get to look cute without having something hug your body.
Option 4 – Lace is great year round, but I particularly like it in the spring. This happens to be on clearance right now for under $9! It’ll look super crisp with white jeans and wedges or professional tucked into a colored pencil skirt. Or, shake things up and pair it with boyfriend jeans and open toed heels for dinner!
Option 5 – I’m starting to accept the fact that I will never feel like I have enough striped tees. (Feel like are the key words, though!) I like that this one comes out a little at the hips. This would also look great with white jeans and tan or bright colored sandals, but it would pair well with any colored bottoms.
Option 6 – Another sweatshirt, because…why not? I like that it’s two-toned and has some texture. You can wear this casually or add a sparkly statement necklace to dress it up.
Option 7 – I LOVE this dress and would totally buy it if I wasn’t pregnant right now. It’s a polka dotted pattern, but the dots are unevenly spread so it looks like a graphic print from far away. Both are things I love–dots and graphic prints. Easily make it casual with a denim jacket or a statement necklace and sandals, wear it for work with a blazer or a colorful cardigan and pumps, or wear it out with strappy heels and a shiny necklace. See why I love it? 🙂
Option 8 – Another dress that I absolutely love! Perfect for spring. And even better–it’s ponte, which means it should be comfy. Wear it with red, yellow, or green flats or a yellow or green cardigan. Or try layering a white button up underneath for work.
Option 9 – Graphic prints <3 This would be a great dress for any type of showers you have coming up (bridal, baby, etc.) Go neutral with a white or navy cardigan, or try a coral one to liven things up!
These lightweight trench coats and jackets are perfect for spring when you need a light layer.
Option 10 – I don’t know if you can see it from your screen, but this has a very subtle pattern to it. Very cute!
Option 11 – Or of course…stripes. Couldn’t resist. (No one should be surprised about that!) Both this option and Option 10 will make your outfits pop!
Option 12 – This polka dot anorak also comes in white/taupe stripes and a few other patterns that I can’t remember at the moment. They are ridiculously cute alternatives to solid anorak jackets!
