Spring Statement Staples That Don't Require A Big Investment

Spring is the season of new beginnings — pretty blossoms, chirping birds, and of course — a fresh wardrobe hanging in your closet. If that last part of the cycle hasn’t come full circle for you quite yet, no worries: a complete clothing overhaul isn’t necessary to give your look a luxe upgrade. When it comes to revamping a weary wardrobe, it’s as easy as swapping out a few key pieces for their more spring-centric upgrades.

Investing in your spring wardrobe simply comes down to incorporating on-trend cuts, colors, and hues into the tops, bottoms, and outerwear you already love wearing. Whether you’re breathing new life into a denim skirt by swapping a faded blue wash for shiny pink, or you’re shaking up your old LBD with a boldly-hued alternative, that spring style investment doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. Nordstrom has tons of on-point picks sure to revitalize any closet —  especially considering the versatility of their statement-making tees, eye-catching bombers, and embroidered denim.

Whether your style leans toward tomboy cool, classic, or boho chic, retiring a few old tops, skirts, and outerwear for their revamped cousins means your best spring looks are just around the corner.

Count On Your Trusty Leather Jacket, Or Switch To A Silky Bomber

While a leather jacket's a staple in any style-setter's closet, spring days create space for something more lighthearted, too. A sporty silk bomber is an ideal outfit topper for tying together any look — from jeans and a tee to your favorite minidress.

Rely On Your LBD, Then Twist Into A Vibrant Tiered Maxi

Shop Allison's look, featuring Chelsea28, Steve Madden, BP., Rebecca Minkoff, Leith, and Topshop at Nordstrom.

A little black dress is the vision of practicality, but spring's also the time to indulge yourself with a little color. Dive in headfirst with a multitiered sundress that moves with you — from the beach to a wedding, it's more versatile than you'd think.

Stay On The Move In Overalls, Then Transform In A Sophisticated Jumpsuit

Shop Sophie's look, featuring Madewell, Topshop, Rebecca Minkoff, BP., and Steve Madden at Nordstrom.

When you're running around on a sunny spring day, overalls are your best friend. Offering a secure fit with a stylish silhouette, the adaptable pick's a go-to for feeling comfy. When the sun goes down, you can keep that playfulness in mind with a sophisticated jumpsuit that keeps relaxation front and center.

Go Classic, Or Shake Up Your Denim Style With Embellishment

Shop Diana's look, featuring Free People, Topshop, And Finally, Brandy Melville, and Steve Madden at Nordstrom.

A classic pair of high-rise ankle jeans will complement anything, but when you want your denim to make an even bigger statement, add a little interest. Beaded or embroidered jeans are a level up on the denim style scale, adding an effortless air of glam to anything — even a casual rocker tee.

Trust Your Favorite Denim Blues, Or Indulge In A Little Whimsy With Metallic Pinks

Shop Allison's look, featuring BP., Rebecca Minkoff, Topshop, and Treasure&Bond at Nordstrom.

A frayed denim skirt lends tomboy vibes to your look, which is a big plus if you value staying comfortable and looking cool when running around town. Switch out your blues for a shiny metallic finish when you're feeling a little more whimsical.
