5 Spring Wardrobe Essentials Every Woman Should Own, According To Brie Larson
Believe it or not, spring is right around the corner, which means so is a major change in your style. While you may not be quite ready to put your boots and coats into storage in favor of spring wardrobe essentials, the end of Feb. is a prime time to begin your style venture into the warmer months. According to actor, activist and fashion authority, Brie Larson, dressing for spring doesn't have to be all that complicated. With attention to delicate details, timely trends, and classic cuts, Larson makes spring style look easy.
While street style snapshots and red carpet photos are a great way to gain inspiration from your favorite celebrities, sometimes looking to their social media feeds allow for a more personal view of their taste. Larson makes style stalking even more intriguing by tagging her stylists, glam squad, and the brands she wears in almost every post. Even if you're not looking to spend designer-worthy cash on her exact looks, finding similar options is surprisingly easy.
From feminine dresses to edgy sneakers, Larson's style is as multifaceted as she is. Channel your inner Oscar-winner by embodying the actor's go-to pieces for the upcoming season. Ahead, five staples to add to your spring lineup according to Larson herself.
Printed Midi Dress
Larson demonstrated the stylish convenience of a printed midi dress while on a press tour for her new film, Captain Marvel, in Singapore on Feb. 15. The actor wore a striped piece by Red Valentino that featured a prominent collar, short sleeves, a ruffled hem, and a ribbon belt detail. While the versatile piece could have been paired with a variety of shoe options, from sneakers to sandals, Larson chose to dress it up with pointed black pumps.
Whether you love soft stripes, a whimsical floral, or modern polka dots, adding a printed midi to your spring wardrobe will make day-to-night dressing much easier. Throw on a denim jacket and sneakers for an afternoon outing to the farmers market, and change your style come evening time with the addition of strappy sandals or a moto jacket.
This bold piece can be worn with or without the removable belt. Pair it with platform sandals, a black headband, and a cute clutch for an easy spring look.
This lightweight fabric is ideal for staying cool as the weather warms up. Plus, it's the perfect layering piece to wear under a cozy sweater.
Skirt, Leather, & Sneakers
Regardless of the season, neutral hues always qualify as wardrobe must-haves. Subdued colors aside, some items can be considered "neutral pieces" because of how easy they are to style. Larson proved this point when she posed outside of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles in Jan. wearing a knitted midi, a leather jacket, and comfortable sneakers. Although these pieces are far from groundbreaking on their own, the effortlessly stylish combination makes for a casual, yet sophisticated, ensemble.
Keep it straightforward by opting for a midi skirt, a boxy leather jacket, and a classic pair of sneakers. Looking to dress it up? Add statement jewelry, a bold lip color, or a slicked-back bun to create a little extra drama.
Although this jacket was once marked at just under $800, you can make it yours today for under $400.
This is the everyday skirt you've been searching for. Plus, it's only $50 and it comes in eight colors.
Add a little spring to your step with a platform version of these old-school classics.
If you're in search of a one-step solution for when you feel like you have nothing to wear, look no further than Larson's utility-inspired jumpsuit. The actor posed in front of a gorgeous peacock mural in Dec., showing off a belted boiler suit by Prada. The one piece came complete with a zippered collar, embellished shoulders, and a cinched ankle.
Arguably the easiest way to emulate the actor's perfectly relaxed style, a workwear jumpsuit pairs well with matching slides, animal-print boots, or chunky sneakers.
The gold stitching on this all-black jumpsuit adds a subtle element of contrast, making it the ideal partner for white boots, black loafers, or patent platforms.
Although this tailored jumpsuit was originally priced at $60, you can buy it on sale for half off at ASOS.
Silky PJ Set
Who says PJs are just for sleeping? Larson proved how polished a silky set can be when she posed in a floral pants-and-top combination by Scotch and Soda in April. Going a step further with the caption, "It’s make-your-pjs-business-wear-at-work day," she paired the luxurious two piece with embellished mules, round sunglasses, and a messy topknot.
While leaving the house in the clothes you slept in might not fly at the office, a satin, pajama-inspired set is an excellent addition to your spring lineup. Stay comfortable on an over-scheduled day by styling the set with loafers, or make it a bit more formal with pointed pumps and loose curls.
Designed to be loose-fitting, pair this button-down with straight-leg denim when you're not opting for the full pajama set.
These silky pants are wide leg, mid-weight, and made with a gorgeous floral pattern.
Although spring is synonymous with warmer weather, sometimes it takes a while to ease away from your beloved layers. Larson debuted a chunky white knit by Caroline Constas in Nov., proving the power of a light color mixed with a heavier fabric.
Wear your cream-colored turtleneck like Larson with jeans, high-top sneakers, and a bold bag. Or, layer it on top of a chiffon maxi dress, gladiator sandals, and a micro clutch.
With a slightly cropped hem, baggy sleeves, and a roll neck, this piece is bound to be the staple sweater you've been dreaming of.
