The Designer Essentials On My Spring Wish List

0 comments

However, it’s also important to invest in designer essentials that will anchor your wardrobe. Personally, designer essentials are a priority for me because I always get way more wear out of them when compared to more affordable styles. I can wear them season after season and they never get old. I tend to stick with brands that are known for their quality and classic styles, like Fendi, Balmain, Burberry, and Bottega Veneta among others.

If they don’t already sell something, it’s likely that they’ll be one of the first to carry it – and they’re great about restocking the popular pieces that tend to sell out fast. Today, I wanted to share the designer essentials that are on my spring wish list, which you can order from the Nordstrom site and have shipped to your home for free.

A Great Jacket

Since I live in a colder climate, investing in a great jacket is the most practical. I try to splurge on season-less styles in the spring that go a long way, like my Burberry trench coat and Balmain blazer, which I basically wear all throughout the year. In recent months, I find myself gravitating towards tweed a lot and really love this relaxed style. I also haven’t updated my trench coat in years and have been wanting this longer Burberry style – it’s so edgy yet chic and easily transitions from day to night.

Designer Shoes

When it comes to investing in my wardrobe, shoes are always a big focus. I try to go with versatile styles that I don’t already own. In the past, I’ve purchased many of my favorite designer pumps and statement heels from Nordstrom. This season, the Alexander McQueen sneakers are high on my shoe list. Although I own several designer sneakers, this one is so unique with the tall rubber platform. They just look so comfy and cute – perfect for an effortless daytime look.

Logo Pieces

I try to keep my spring style easy and chic. One of the outfits I keep on rotation are basic tops with denim. Since these outfits can feel really simple, I like to amp them up with statement logo pieces. Whether it’s a t-shirt or accessory with a repeat logo design, they really elevate an outfit. This t-shirt and these sunglasses also sit high on my spring wish list.

I love investing in designer bags because they last forever. It isn’t easy to decide which bag to invest in, but I try to go for styles that I truly love – like The Pouch Bag from Bottega Veneta. Oftentimes, I’ll place something on my wish list for months before making a purchase just to be sure that it isn’t an impulsive purchase. This spring, it’s Saint Laurent’s woven bags and the Gucci Fanny Pack that I have my eyes on.

Spring Dresses

I rarely get to wear dresses, so I love splurging on one or two great pieces in the springtime when I tend to go out more. I always go for classic pieces that can be worn throughout summer, and that I can also dress down with a pair of espadrilles. Some of my go-to brands are Self-Portrait, Veronica Beard, and Isabel Marant.
