As the days finally start to warm up, it takes self-restraint not to dive head first into every spring trend that’s been teasing us for months. But despite the excitement, we’re firm believers that it only takes a few thoughtful adjustments to make a world of difference to your wardrobe. Case in point: in the wide range of design-forward, wallet-friendly pieces in the Lord & Taylor Premium Shop at Walmart, it’s simple to find easy essentials that can transform your spring style. Seven essentials, to be exact. Plus, with the site’s Friends and Family sale on through April 20 — with 30 percent off select pieces from brands including H Halston, Jill Jill Stuart, Betsy Johnson, Bernardo, and Nine West — there’s no reason not to try each of them.
Although prints are a seasonless theme, the latest versions feel especially lighthearted with polka dots, stripes, and of course spring’s most signature motif, florals.
It’s Finally Sandal Season
If you’ve been patiently waiting to free your toes from the boots you’ve worn for the past six months, then we encourage picking out colorful block-heel sandals. They’re perfect for when you decide it’s warm enough to walk instead of taking the subway.
An instant way to freshen up your style in the new season: swap your worn-out everyday bag for a brighter option that feels more unexpected.
Nothing against a more-is-more approach to accessorizing, but there’s something very satisfying about putting on just one impactful accent that amplifies an entire look. This season, a powerful earring will do that. This option comes in a wide range of colors, so good you’ll want to buy multiples.
The Pulled-Together Pant
The best additions to any closet translate easily for work and play, which is exactly what a cropped trouser can do. Pair it with sneakers and a denim jacket for off-hours; add a polished loafer and structured bag when you mean business.
The Beach Sweater
Part trend, part pure necessity, the beach sweater is the perfect transitional piece to layer over breezy skirts, tie around your pant waist, or sling over your shoulders.
If neither April showers nor May flowers inspire you to try something new for spring, then maybe the full spectrum of rainbow colors is more your speed.
