Spring Outfit Inspiration from Sofia Coppola

It was over 70 degrees yesterday but we might get snow flurries next week so dressing in March and even April can be a challenge. This year, I’m inspired by Sofia Coppola who has the perfect wardrobe for unpredictable weather.

Her closet staples include navy sweaters, black pants, blue shirts, navy coats, striped tops, ballet flats, white sneakers, a classic trench, crossbody bags, and roomy purses, some of which she designed for Louis Vuitton.

It’s funny how much of Sofia’s own style seemed to inform the wardrobe of Rashida Jones’s character in her latest film On the Rocks. In one photo taken on the street during filming, they look like they are wearing the same green cargo pants.

The first outfit I’m inspired by is her mix of navy tops and sweaters paired with black pants. It can be dressed up or down and is a great outfit to transition back into the office again.

Sofia is wearing a navy hooded coat in one photo and spring definitely calls for a rain jacket. I own this Lightweight Jacket in navy and olive green and it’s the perfect thing to grab when the weather is grey or wet.

The Essential $75 Cashmere Sweater is the perfect shade of navy for spring but it’s also available in 13 other colors.

I just pulled these high-rise Cameron pants in four-season stretch out of my closet to wear this spring. I love that I can wear them with sneakers, flats, and heels. I just bought a new pair since they are currently 40% off with an additional 15% off with the code EXTRA until March 13, 2021 which makes them only $46.32.

These classic black ballet flats look pretty close to the ones Sofia is wearing but these are currently 30% off with the code SPRING.

Sofia is carrying the Louis Vuitton SC Bag that she designed and you can find vintage versions still available. Another great option is this midnight blue Khaite medium leather tote. It’s also available in black and light brown.

Unpredictable spring weather calls for a scarf like this black cashmere scarf from Heidi Wynne to keep your neck warm,

There is nothing that says spring more than a classic trench coat. Sofia wore this one in Los Angeles.

I assume that Sofia’s trench is probably Burberry but I love this Nili Lotan cotton blend trench coat and this Frame cotton-twill trench coat. The Icon Trench is a great reasonably priced version, as is this Tipped Twill Trench Coat.

Sofia is wearing a ribbed sweater and this crewneck sweater in cotton-cashmere looks very similar.

Sofia prefers looser denim and I feel like she would appreciate these Quarter Pocket High Rise Corset Easy Straight Jeans.

Sofia loves a white sneaker and these leather sneakers with croc-embossed detail are perfect for wet days. They are currently 40% off with an additional 15% off with the code EXTRA until March 13, 2021 which makes them $64.50.

Sofia carries a leather trimmed canvas Hermès Birkin bag which few people can afford so I’d swap it out with this leather trimmed linen tote bag. I love that it includes a shoulder strap when you want to go hands free.

It looked like Sofia had a scarf in her hand but it was actually a crumpled up shopping bag. I love silk scarves for seasonal weather and would add this little equestrian scarf.

There is probably no fashion item I associate with Sofia Coppola than the blue buttondown shirt.

Sofia is a fan of Charvet shirts but they can be very expensive. I think this blue point-collar cotton-poplin shirt looks like a shirt she would definitely wear. This classic-fit oxford cotton shirt is a more casual option. You could also wear a men’s blue dress shirt and roll up the sleeves.

Even though Sofia prefers a straight leg style of jeans, I also like these high-rise skinny jeans in the color she prefers.

I love the Mary Janes that Sofia wears in one of her outfits and these Velvet Mary Janes are a great price and come in eight different colors.

I love adding a burgundy bag to blue outfit like Sofia did with this half moon smooth-leather cross-body bag.

Sofia doesn’t wear a lot of accessories but she is often seen with sunglasses. These Ray Ban Wayfarer square-frame tortoiseshell acetate sunglasses are a great update for spring.

Navy is a popular color choice for Sofia and she often pairs navy tops, sweaters, and coats with jeans.

This shorter Wool Blend Coat in dark navy is a great option for colder spring weather and it’s currently half off. It’s also available in black, camel, charcoal grey, and dark olive green.

I love crewneck sweaters but this midnight blue polo sweater is a lovely alternative. This balloon-sleeve pointelle sweater is a very similar look to one of the sweaters Sofia wears above.

These cropped high-rise straight-leg jeans look like a Sofia style and they are currently 15% off.

I saw a photo of Sofia wearing Stan Smith Adidas sneakers and they are 25% off with the code EXTRA25. I like them with the navy trim and the traditional green.

The crossbody bag that Sofia is wearing looks similar to a Sezane style but it’s sold out in most colors. This black leather cross-body bag is another chic style.

Sofia collaborated with Cartier so it’s the reason why she wears a Cartier watch.

Striped tees, tops, and sweaters are another favorite of Sofia Coppola. She’s been seen in so many versions and even wears them to events.

There’s nothing chicer than a simple striped sweater like this striped cashmere crewneck boyfriend sweater. But you also can’t go wrong with a striped boatneck tee shirt.

A great way to lighten up for spring is to swap in white jeans. I love the highest-rise toothpick jeans and the curvy toothpick jeans.

I took inspiration for these yellow suede ballet flats from the yellow tote bag that Sofia carries while wearing stripes.

A fun tote bag for spring and summer would be this large blue leather and jute-trimmed suede tote.

While I haven’t seen Sofia Coppola wear an Apple Watch, I like to think she might consider the Hermès Apple Watch with a blue band.

Happy Spring and Bon Week-end!
