11 Fashion Pieces to Buy With Your Tax Refund
Congrats! You filed your taxes. After working hard all year, hopefully, Uncle Sam will be sending you a little reward — in the form of a nice, juicy refund. If so, it’s time to think about buying yourself something extra fun, because you deserve it. Don’t have anything in mind? Don’t worry: We’ve got some ideas. Below, a spring shopping list that puts that extra paper to very good use.
There’s no denying it: Yellow is a must-have color this season. This sunny Michael Michael Kors Finley Off-the-Shoulder Midi Dress ($140) will brighten up all your summer parties.
Warm weather calls for fun, flat sandals. These Loeffler Randall Saskia Pom-Pom Leather Lace-Up Sandals ($250) give new meaning to the term “happy feet.”
Tassels are a summer staple, but not just for vacay. This burgundy Rebecca Minkoff Mini Sofia Tassel Leather Crossbody Bag ($172) does them in a totally sophisticated way.
A novelty army jacket is a cool-girl essential. Throw this luxe Hei Hei Embroidered Field Jacket ($168) over any of your sweet sundresses for a fun mash up.
What’s better than a denim mini? A ruffled denim mini, obviously. Exhibit A: this Ganni Benedict Denim Skirt ($185).
Embellished block heels, like these Kate Spade New York Piedra Embellished Mid Heel Sandals ($250), are a comfy, chic way to get a little lift and a hit of color at the same time. Yes, please.
A double-edge bar earring is a totally non-stuffy way to do pearl studs. These Hortense Majorette Pearl Earrings ($184) are perfect for work without being stodgy.
Treat yourself to a super sweet blouse. The light and feminine Rebecca Taylor Macramé-lace Panelled Silk Blouse ($225) is the warm weather version of Fall’s ubiquitous high neck tops.
Because jeans are so much more fun when they come with sparkly embellishments. Dress these Topshop MOTO Gemstone Hayden Boyfriend Jeans ($125) up or just stick to sneaks and a tee.
Retro, sporty cat-eyes are a Spring 17 must-buy. Bonus points if you get them in on-trend pink, like these Karen Walker Babou Sunglasses ($250).
White sneakers are the fashion girl’s flat of choice. This season, get yourself a tricked-out, Gucci-esque version, a la these Ash Nak Bis Sneakers ($210).
