Spring has officially begun, which means it’s time to refresh your wardrobe for the season. While neutrals will always be great for foundational pieces, the lighter feeling of Spring invites us to inject a little more color into our style. Punches of both neon and creamsicle shades will be go-tos this season, and Banana Republic has a new collection of Spring Essentials that are perfect for right now. Paired with fun handbags from Michael Kors and Brahmin, you’re sure to create a look that’s guaranteed to elevate your mood all season long. Ready to punch things up? Here are 3 easy ways to inject more color into your Spring wardrobe.

Gauzy Knits

Cooler temps haven’t completely left us yet, so gauzy knit sweaters are still a must for those days when you need to cut through the chill. This pretty sunbeam color is an instant mood booster, and will pair well with all of your favorite denim or neutral trousers.

Florals for Spring won’t ever be groundbreaking, but what about a novelty bird print? A prettily patterned dress in a sweet hue is a must for the 2022 Spring season, and this one is versatile enough to be styled with heels, booties, and sneakers.

While many people start to gravitate towards more colorful pieces for Spring, some still prefer to walk on the more neutral side. Neutral doesn’t have to equal boring, however, and right now Banana Republic has in some key pieces that can both refresh and elevate any wardrobe, regardless of personal style. The shade range is a little more tonal and fun (think safari chic), so they will pair well with the pieces that you already own.

Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores to visit for both style and home decor inspiration. I love the way that they play with patterns, prints, and textures, and Spring might be my favorite season for their new arrivals.

The colors throughout the store are both vibrant and muted; we all know that orange is a popular color for Spring, however, they will also have soft shades of peach and creamsicle mixed throughout, so you have more options to choose from (which can be both good and bad for your wallet). With Spring being a few weeks away, I popped in recently to see what was new, and I immediately got a burst of excitement when I walked through the door.
