IT List: 5 Affordable Essentials for this Spring

Fashions this spring are fun and lighthearted so it’s easy to go overboard. This checklist of essentials will have you on-trend without toeing the line between cutie and crazy girl.

These accessories in Asian prints and neon colors are exactly what we mean by fun essentials, but be weary of looking like a flash back to the 80’s. The key to pulling these looks off is moderation and pairing with more neutral basics. We recommend going to scarf route to tie in Asian prints unless you are very adventurous-  like Jessa from HBO’s Girls.

Patterned and colored jeans are here to stay this spring and floral patterns are going bigger. Why not kill two birds with one stone with this sweet pair from Abercrombie & Fitch? Pieces that multi-task save you closet space and cash which is why we’re suggesting you tone down this colorful look with a dark colored boyfriend blazer that can keep you warm during the day or at night.

Boyfriend blazers are a bit longer than regular blazers so they also work well pair with dresses or skirts. This one is $60 from Topshop and we’re betting H&M also has a nice selection.
