Whether dressing for work, play or a decidedly springtime event in Nashville, finding the perfect look can seem daunting — especially when the weather is transitioning. If you’re looking to step into spring with some stunning new styles, Stacey Rhodes Boutique has everything you need for work, play and every special event in between. From classic white t-shirts and stylish sneakers to elegant springtime dresses and statement jewelry, here’s what to wear this spring!

WHAT TO WEAR TO WORK

Raise your hand if you have a work “uniform.” I am not talking about a uniform your work actually gave you, but a uniform you gave yourself because you simply don’t have time to think about a unique outfit five days week. (*RAISES HAND*)

Workwear shouldn’t be boring, so below are three different looks for spring that will make your morning wardrobe selection easy and will keep you comfortable, confident and stylish.

Look #1:

Try wearing a fitted t-shirt (do a little front tuck!!) with your favorite light-colored trousers and a leather jacket for a unique look for the office. After hours, wear the jacket over your shoulders to dress it up a bit and take it out on the town.

Mauritius blush leather coat, $329; Ecru white pant, $170; Michael Stars white tank, $44; Sam Edelman heels, $120; Hammitt crossbody, $335; Sarah Briggs blush hoops, $50

Look #2:

Got a big meeting? Opt for a simple blouse with a high-waisted, cropped trouser and a statement shoe. By the way, these shoes were the most comfortable heels I have EVER worn. Snag these beauties while they’re still in stock!

Amanda Uprichard tie top, $136; Ecru black pant, $170; Sacha London mules, $159; Black/metallic clutch, $195

These heels are as comfortable as they are chic.

Look #3:

Casual Fridays? Swap those stilettos for leather sneakers and the silk blouse for a loose button down, add a statement necklace, and you’ll be casually killin’ it in the office.

Sundays gauze top, $145; Ecru white pant, $170; Krewe “Collins” black sunglasses, $255; Senso “Astrid” sneakers, $220; Jenny Bird mixed metal necklace, $250

Sneakers? Yes. But still stylish enough for workwear.

This mixed metal piece is the statement you want to make this spring.

WHAT TO WEAR FOR PLAY

Whether you’re heading out for a fun date with your significant other or a girls’ night out with your crew, dress the part and have fun with your spring style. Here are some selections that will work perfectly for a variety of spring outings.

Look #1:

Going to check out some live music and grab a few drinks? Channel your inner rockstar with a graphic tee, white denim (because SPRING) and a mule that marries comfort and style.

Chaser tee, $62; DL1961 white frayed jeans, $199; Senso leather mules, $219

Look #2:

Heading out for a date night? Here’s an outfit even your lover will love: a nice blouse, white denim, the coolest sandals and a crossbody bag. You can do just about anything in this look because it’s so versatile and comfortable!

DL1961 white denim, $199; Acrobat black tie top, $158; Hammit black purse, $295; Sacha London black slide with checked heel, $139

How fun is this bag?!

Look #3:

Brunch plans? Don a light, comfortable look that will transition into the rest of your Sunday activities. Pair it with a black bootie, white sneaker or black sandal for something simple and stylish.

Michael Stars black tee, $58; Third Form black/tan short, $114; black fringe earrings, $60

WHAT TO WEAR TO SPRING’S TOP EVENTS

Anyone else in awe of all the fabulous spring events in Nashville? If you are anything like me and want to attend them all, you will need your planner and some good outfit inspiration because you never know who you might meet. Here are some top spring events and what to wear to each.

Nashville Fashion Week — April 2-6, 2019

Want to feel like a fashionista for a night? Snag a ticket to Nashville Fashion Week! Maybe I’m biased, but it’s so fun to see local designers’ creations on the runway while you enjoy a drink with friends. You may be thinking, “Alison, I have nothing extravagant to wear to Fashion Week.” Listen, it doesn’t have to be extravagant. You just need to look and feel confident. Opt for a high-waisted pair of denim, a black top, leather jacket (draped over the shoulders of course), black heels and a statement earring. Simple, but sexy and fun! Give it a go!

Mauritius black leather jacket, $279; Michael Stars black tee, $58; Nicole Miller jeans with studs, $99; Sacha London black heel, $142; Mary Frances lip clutch, $69; Deepa Gurnani gold hoop earrings, $150

LOVE the stud details on these jeans!
