Create The Ultimate Spring Capsule Wardrobe With These TikTok Style Favorites
Vienna Skye shares how she’s styling her favorite spring pieces from Macy’s.
No matter what your spring style goals may be, you can find the best fashion inspo for your look on TikTok. Whether it’s how to wear a button-down shirt 20 ways or the most popular brands for leveling up your wardrobe, TikTok always has the tea. Vienna Skye, Bustle’s resident TikTok creator, is giving you the 411 on the season’s top trends — and how to wear them multiple ways to get the most out of your closet. After all, even the boldest fashion personalities want pieces that express their unique style without saying a word. (And if you can do that while getting more mileage out of statement pieces, that’s even better!)
Skye is ready to shed those winter layers and share how she styles her spring capsule favorites from Macy’s. “I tend to hibernate in winter, so I’m excited to reconnect with everyone in warmer weather,” she says. And all those upcoming picnics in the park, rooftop brunches, and beach getaways call for prep-inspired varsity stripes, pretty pastels, and other spring-centric essentials. Check out four ways Skye’s wearing her spring pieces, so you can navigate your own fashion refresh with total ease.
Pattern Play And Pastels
Who says you can’t mix patterns? Skye does so effortlessly in this look, pairing a striped pink shirt with floral jeans. A splash of contrasting color comes via apple-green vinyl slides (with a mini bag to match) and light blue sunglasses. Consider the comfy slide a core must-have for all those spring walks around town, and Skye’s all about that life: “An ideal spring day for me would start with a walk in Manhattan. I love people watching, and as soon as the sun is out, the streets get busier. Then I’d head over to my favorite Italian cafe in SoHo for lunch,” she says.
Prep In Her Step
Skye doubles the fun with two striped shirts in this look, securing a darker navy one over her shoulders. It’s a head-turning way to wear the varsity trend without overthinking it. To dress down the polished vibes, Skye went for relaxed denim and a sporty sneaker. The true statement anchor of the look? A bold orange bag, again in spring’s go-to mini size. The balance between core staples and trendy pieces is key, says Skye, adding, “I think as long as you stick to long-lasting basics, like jeans, shoes, and bags, you can incorporate a few trendier items into your wardrobe each season.”
Uptown Sweet And Downtown Street
When you can successfully merge edgy vibes and sweet details, it’s a winning matchup. A classic spring dress is a wardrobe staple, and this one’s smocked bodice and romantic sleeves make it an easy throw-on-and-go piece. A leopard-print bucket hat edges things up — and seeing as the ’90s accessory is quickly climbing the ranks on TikTok, it’s a total must-have for the season ahead.
Flip It And Reverse It
For her last ensemble, Skye shows how she mixes pieces from her first and second look to create the ultimate spring style combo. Because of the versatility of the pieces, like the relaxed denim, oversized button-down shirt, and colorful accessories, she’s able to build a look that feels totally new. Skye’s favorite detail creates an instant focal point. “I’ve always been a big fan of mini bags,” she says, “so both of the bags I’m wearing are going to be the perfect addition to my spring looks.”
