After months of bleak weather, the tantalizingly warm tides of spring carry with them an inevitable yet exciting desire to refresh our transitional wardrobes. This season we're leaning into simple, versatile pieces that circumvent the tired concept of "basics" and are instead timeless silhouettes we won't feel the need to retire—a notion embodied in the latest release from Marc Jacobs' "The Marc Jacobs" line. Perhaps that's a classic Victorian blouse or a short suit consisting of separates we can mix and match with other pieces from our closets.

From there, we plan on dressing them up with unique statement accessories. Opting for a broad range, including anything from lug-sole ankle boots to Marc Jacobs' iconic "The Tote Bag" rendered in new floral prints for spring, bold accessories are breathing new life into our staple ready-to-wear items. For a visual depiction of these ideas, we've asked creative stylist Alexis Badiyi to experiment with a few of our favorite pieces from Jacobs' newest collection. As someone who counts helping others get dressed as part of her job description, she's created four fresh ensembles chock-full of styling tips.


Short Suit + Button-Down + Crossbody Bag

The sartorial solution to tailoring for the warmer months is the short suit. This ultra chic riff on the classic workwear staple is polished yet comfortable. An untucked button down relaxes the ensemble, while a loafer and printed crossbody bag complete the look.

White Denim + Structured Tote + Chunky Boot

Victorian Blouse + Flared Pant + Floral Bag

A feminine Victorian blouse is never really out of style, rather the way you style it is what evolves. Tone down the sweetness of the top with a pair of '70s-esque flares. In a shocking twist (that we wholeheartedly support), Badiyi broke one of those outdated fashion rules and opted for black accessories to contrast her brown pants.

T-Shirt + Trench + Flared Pant

Few items are more versatile than a t-shirt, and here, Badiyi dresses up the wardrobe staple with a leather trench and, of course, great accessories. She grounds the dark hue of the outerwear with a corresponding black boot, then ties the blue shade of the tee in with the tote's floral print.
