Congrats! You officially made it through winter. Now that it’s time to come out of hibernation (note to self: order an iced coffee), we need to work on getting your spring wardrobe in order. To help you out, we tapped style influencers and real-life pals Ria Michelle and Emilie Sobel. The Miami natives headed to H&M to shop together for an upcoming music festival, brunch and weekend getaway. Here’s what they put together.
Your Shopping Guide to 3 Fun Spring Occasions
When You’re Headed To A Music Festival
The key here is to layer and dress comfortably. Let’s be honest, the combination of heat and dancing is not ideal for restrictive clothing. Ria says, “You should always keep breathability in mind,” so this is the perfect opportunity to show off flowy skirts and dresses. And since it typically gets cool at night, Emilie suggests wearing “a denim jacket that you can throw into a fun backpack, drape over your shoulders or tie around your waist.” The piece both women swear by? Comfortable footwear, like sneakers or chunky mules, since you’ll be walking and standing the majority of the time.
When You’re Enjoying Sunday Brunch
As much as you want to roll out of bed and attend brunch in your pajamas, we advise against it. (If you’re like us, you’ll end up running into everyone you know.) In an effort to look put together but feel relaxed enough to enjoy mimosas and challah French toast, opt for pieces that have a little more give. Think slouchy shorts with a tucked-in tee. Need to get a bit dressier? A denim skirt and a flouncy top will never let you down. “My number one brunch tip? Stay away from crop tops and tight-fitting bottoms. Simply kick back and indulge,” Ria says.
When You’re Packing For A Weekend Getaway
Instead of tossing random items into a suitcase, these pals stress the importance of choosing complete looks beforehand. This will keep you from over-packing and help you see if you’re forgetting anything. Emilie recommends “trying on each outfit and taking pictures so you know how everything looks together.” And, to ensure all of your bases are covered, Ria says to “pick pieces that can translate from day to night, like statement jewelry.”
