After months dressing for the cold and icy elements in West Michigan, it's time to finally pack away the winter boots and scarves and swap for fresh, spring style and pieces that will transition us to sunnier days.
Whether you have travel plans to a warm destination or are simply ready to refresh your wardrobe in anticipation of rising temps, Laurel & Jack can help you usher in spring in style—without breaking the bank.
Spring is all about bold, playful colors like bright and beautiful orange, fuchsia and even blues. This So Cal Midi Dress with ruffled straps is perfect to get into vacation mode. Pants more your style? Try the So Cal linen pants with a tube top in the same vibrant color.
Pack the most punch for your trip with pieces that can serve double duty as a poolside swim coverup and a daytime look. The Great Escape Romper in navy and oatmeal has a touch of spandex, making it perfect to throw over a damp suit. My go-to brand to look put together is Current Air, with classic pieces like this drop waist dress, flattering for all figures (available in blue, white and black).
AN EVENING OUT
Looking for a go-to vacation outfit that is both effortless and chic? Try this colorful two piece set by Fate in a light silk fabric, perfect for nights out in warmer climates. If more classic is your style, the black dress from Current Air features an open back and flattering style.
ADVENTURES & EXCURSIONS
Go from the day's adventures to lunch with Alala activewear, which has many versatile pieces that can take you from day to night. Try a classic tennis dress for sightseeing and then layer with a jacket, like the multicolor Ace Jacket featuring pin dot mesh ventilation to create an elevated look.
Even the littlest travelers can get into the spirit with Chaser, a fun line for kids and adults featuring trendy prints, like these smiley face shorts, sweatshirts and playful rompers.
