Any day now, it’ll start feeling like spring. When it gets here, we’ll be more than ready to shed layers. And while the web (this site included) is full of new buys to check off your seasonal shopping list, there’s something about the good old wardrobe staple that makes everything old feel new again.
Since we could all use some advice on how to make everything old feel new again, we tuned to our Style Panel members for some trusty tips for wearing their favourite pieces. As we found on the street outside fashion week, statement outerwear is key. Northern Style Kira Paran features an unexpected twist on the classic trench by choosing a sleeveless option as her wardrobe staple. We can’t deny the power of a good motorcycle jacket, which The Signature Bow‘s Leonie Markhorst tries in burgundy suede. As always, stripes signify spring, something Becky Kung and Stephanie Koch both renew for Spring 2014 a la runways like Altuzarra and Tanya Taylor.
So, what’s your spring wardrobe staple? Flip through for inspiration on how to change it up this season.
