Ask the Fashion Bloggers: What’s Your Favorite Piece in Your Spring Wardrobe?

Eight local style bloggers spill on their latest loves.

By: Michelle Thomas

We can’t resist a good voyeuristic peek into the closet (or makeup bag, or home, or . . . well, you get the idea) of Washington’s most stylish. Lucky for us, DC’s fashion bloggers are only too happy to indulge us. Read on for the ultimate can’t-live-without-’em picks in their spring arsenal.

Carla Cabrera of the President Wears Prada

“I love this peach dress—its neutral color works great with brighter pieces, and it layers beautifully for cooler spring evenings. The nude wedge heels complement all the dresses in my closet and are made from an environmentally friendly, rubber-like material that is super comfortable to walk in.”

Get the Look: Try Alexander Wang’s silk tee dress ($129.99 at the Outnet) and Michael Kors’s nude wedge heel ($195 at Bloomingdale's).

Ashleigh Hutchinson of the Daleigh

“My hands-down favorite piece in my closet for spring are my Gucci sandals—a sexy, sleek and classic style with a bit of edge that will be worn for years to come. I love a simple sandal, so this was definitely a great investment and will be on repeat all season long!”

Get the Look: Splurge on the buckled Guccis themselves ($695 at Saks), or try this similar Chinese Laundry style ($59 at Piperlime).


Natalie Pinto of the Fashionably Broke

“This white trench coat is by far my favorite spring item that I own. It’s so versatile and completes any outfit! The fabric is light and breezy, too, so I can still wear it on those warmer days in spring. Plus I adore the black details of the buttons—any black and white combo is super chic in my book!”

Get the Look: Calvin Klein’s white trench ($169.50 at Zappos) picks up on the black-and-white trench with color-block sleeves and black buttons.


Lacey Maffettone of A Lacey Perspective

"I cannot live without my perfectly worn-in, light-washed denim jacket. Toss it over anything to add the finishing touch to a spring day look.”

Get the Look: We love Madewell’s take on the ultra-classic jean jacket ($118).


Catherine Anderson of Poor Little It Girl

“Whether I’m in my favorite LBD or a comfortable pair of boyfriend jeans, these Lucite heels always steal the show!”

Get the Look: Jeffrey Campbell’s sandals ($170 at Nasty Gal) make a similar statement with clear detailing.


Sara of High Fashion 4 Less

“My favorite thing this spring is my turquoise pencil skirt. It adds the right pop of color to any outfit.”

Get the Look: Ann Taylor puts a lace spin on this skirt style ($88).


Nifesimi Oluwole of Skinny Hipster

“What better way to usher in springtime than with floral-print pieces? I love these pants because they are cut nicely and the floral print is appropriate without being overwhelming.”

Get the Look: These floral trousers ($49.88 at Asos) echo the black trim and soft floral print of Nifesimi’s choice.


E of District of Chic

“I really love the high-end sweatshirt trend, so snapping up this epic version from Zara was kind of a no-brainer. It doesn’t hurt that the subtle cutouts are both sexy and flattering, too.”

Get the Look: Invest with Stella McCartney’s embroidered sweatshirt ($625 at Saks), or go in a slightly different direction with this bomber jacket ($88 at Need Supply), complete with cutout embroidery along the front.
