Now that spring has finally arrived in New York for a whole day, the weather feels great and I’m motivated to look as good as I feel. Here’s my daily struggle to which I feel we can all relate: I literally have nothing to wear in this weather. And by nothing, I mean I have nothing I actually like. I can stare into my fully stocked closet for hours (as I do to my fridge every night), and still find nothing appealing. So, obviously this justifies spending my last paycheck on an entire new wardrobe, because wtf else is a girl supposed to do? Coincidentally enough, ASOS is having a huge af sale. B-L-E-S-S. Final reductions mark everything up to 60% off, so at this point, you just kind of have to take advantage. All of the shit is incredibly overwhelming, so here are some starters to consider.
We all need at least one piece of clothing in our closets that we can wear to just about any occasion—whether it be a wedding, Hinge date, or a much-needed tequila-filled GNO. When it doubt, jumpsuit it is. Pair it with heels you can actually walk in, and you’ll look both skinny and tall af.
Bodysuits make you look v trendy, five pounds lighter, and they always go with any bottom you own. They’re basically life and I’m so thankful being a grown-ass adult wearing a onesie is considered fashion.
Tapered pants are a #mood, tbh. Take them from your dreary office for boss betch vibez to the nearest happy hour because they’re also chic enough to get tipsy in. For a major spring statement, opt for a bright color you can mix and match a neutral top with.
You might as well stock up on some summer staples while you’re at it. You can never have too many basic bodycons because hoe is fashion. And life. I may be biased, but square necklines always look better to me than overdone round ones, and this dress has a caged back you can totally take a “candid” backside Insta in it.
Spring = denim jackets. The weather is too damn confusing around this time of year. It’s too cold to go out without a jacket, but too warm out to wear your winter one. Keep it street style chic and low-key with a denim jacket you won’t mind carrying all night.
Clearly, block heels are here to stay and honestly, praise be because who is really trying to bar hop in stilettos? Like, I’m not trying to bust my ass. An open-toed style with a wrap tie goes v well with day drinking festivities. Since these come in a color that’s like a combo of gray and summer taupe, you can def wear them multiple consecutive days in a row without anyone saying shit.
