Swap In These 5 Pieces For A Fresh (Edgy) Spring Outfit


This post is sponsored by Saks.

We’ve seen quite a few clothing silhouettes change over the past couple of years. Which can sometimes make it tough to feel up-to-date in your looks. And I’m not talking “trendy” here. I’m talking about having closet pieces that align with changing trends in a more classic way (with a little edge though, of course.)

I’ve slowly been updating go-to closet pieces of mine with swaps that follow newer shapes. It’s made me feel really good about getting dressed lately. Today I’ve got five suggestions I recently found at Saks that fulfill these outfit upgrades–a really cool elevated tee, a denim jacket in a fresh shape, comfy loose black jeans, pretty kitten heels, and a twist on the spring bag.

A Spring Outfit Update With These 5 Finds From Saks

Sometimes the least confusing way to hop on new clothing styles is to think about swapping formerly go-to pieces in your closet. This outfit is one I can wear a variety of places when I want to get out of my sweatpants in the coming months. Each piece is versatile and easy to style with other items, too.

1 | The Tee: Anine Bing Avi Cotton Paris Tee

The Details: The longer sleeves and higher neck on this Anine Bing tee are so fabulous. These details feel fresh without being fussy or hard to wear. I’ve loved Anine Bing tees and sweatshirts for years. They continue to be the ones I hang onto in my forever closet. This one is also a nice lighter weight for spring and summer.

I’ve been a fan of graphic tees forever, but am leaning away from band tees and into slightly more elevated travel tees. They feel chic to me but add that graphic bit of pop I adore in outfits.

2 | The Jacket: Good American Belted Cargo Denim Jacket

The Details: Most of the team lately has been talking about how we’re tired of the classic fitted denim jacket, but those have always been go-tos for easy pieces to throw on with dresses, tees, tanks, etc. for spring + summer.

I love that this jacket is like a jean jacket and a trench coat had a cute baby…it’s perfect for now through early spring and a totally updated shape with cool cargo details that keep it from feeling too matronly.

3 | The Jeans: rag & bone Featherweight Logan Wide Leg

The Details: If you’ve been keeping up with our posts here over the last year, you know many of us at The Mom Edit love the featherweight jeans from rag & bone. I have this exact pair in a blue wash and was happy to add a nice solid black pair to my wardrobe.

This pair has the slouch we’ve grown to love in jeans, but in this solid black they’re dressy enough to wear as trousers. This fabric is sooo comfy that you don’t feel like you have jeans or trousers on…just a soft pair of versatile black pants. These would be amazing for travel.

4 | The Heels: Sam Edelman Bianka Slingback

The Details: I cannot tell you how stoked I am that kitten heels are in style this year. I’ve been wearing them for a couple of years now because me and traditional height pumps just can’t hang anymore.

I love that this is still a delicate style for when I want to feel dressed up, but my little feet can walk in these for more of the day. The pointed toe is also my favorite combo with a wider leg, looser fit jean.

5 | The Bag: Marc Jacobs The Mini Metallic Leather Tote

The Details: We’ve loved a metallic purse for the holidays but wow, how fun is it for spring outfits, too? It feels lighter and fresher than a black bag for this time of year but doesn’t require you to commit to a bright or pastel color if you lean more towards neutrals, like I do. Shine without the color commitment? Haha. This bag is a great size, too, for making a statement without being too too small. It also comes with a shoulder strap for versatility.

I feel refreshed finding these wearable swaps for spring that feel my style, but updated. These would be great pieces to add to a packing list or capsule wardrobe, too. They’re all really versatile but easy. Those are always my favorite kind of finds!
