There are some great hot spring trends out there to try right now -- like bold, bright hues, cropped shirts, and cute platform sandals -- but chances are, the majority of you wear this season will revolve around a handful of simple, easy-to-mix-and-match basic items. Check out the stylish ones at Madewell, where all sale items are an extra 25 percent off this weekend only (now through Sunday, April 3, 2011; use coupon code WHYNOT at checkout).
My favorite staples? You can't go wrong with a pair of sleek Back-Zip Legging Jeans (pictured; $44.62 with the code) or skinny chino Utility Zip Pants ($44.62 with the code), both of which will get tons of use with all of your lightweight tops and jackets. Also on sale are Madewell's trademark tissue-thin cardigans, unique girly dresses, and colorful print scarves. Casual, versatile tops are also great buys -- this antique white Hazy Days Tank ($29.99 with the code) has delicate buttons and a sweet, classic shape.
Bonus: If you're spending more than $100, shipping is free with the WHYNOT code as well! Great time to stock up on pieces you know you'll wear again and again... why not, right?
