Spring Wardrobe Essentials

What are your spring wardrobe essentials – you know – the things you reach for (or shop for) year after year? Adding just a few basic pieces into your spring wardrobe will elevate your style and give you a wide range of looks you can play around with, mixing and matching your way to fashion icon status. No, really! Social media is full of influencers these days blabbing on and on about “dressing like a rich girl”, but I’d rather dress like the girl whose outfit looks polished and pulled together. Read on to see my list of key pieces to add to your closet this spring!

Spring Wardrobe Essentials | The List

Here’s your shopping list. You can shop from your closet, or use my links below to help you curate a few wardrobe staples you will reach for again and again. These are just a few ideas, and in colorways that appeal to me. Think of ways you can make these styles your own! Don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit, but remember that these are fundamental building blocks for the rest of your wardrobe.

Essential Pants for Spring

Good basic bottoms to add to your spring wardrobe arsenal should include a pair of white or black pants, a fresh pair of white jeans, and a new pair of denim jeans. Freshen your wardrobe by adding these basics in one of the newer silhouettes – like a cropped kick flare or a boot cut.

Try adding stripes to your closet this spring! a classic striped top or tee will never go out of style, and you’re going to find yourself returning to it again and again. I love the sleeve detail on this one from Chico’s. Don’t be afraid to wear stripes. Good riddance to old rules! Wear your stripes and have fun with them. Of course, it wouldn’t be spring without floral prints, so add a cute floral top into the mix, and don’t forget your basic white tee. Vee necks are especially flattering for pear shapes.

You just can’t beat a good denim jacket. Cropped, boxy styles are trending now, but those simply don’t work for my pear shaped body. I prefer a longer silhouette like this one from Chico’s, which has been on repeat in my wardrobe since last fall! The lightly frayed detail adds a fun touch. A neutral pair of sandals is a must right now, just find a pair in a style you feel most comfortable in. And lastly, don’t forget a good sporty pair of sneakers. They’ll go with everything!

Spring Wardrobe Essentials | How to Wear Them

The cool thing about having these essential pieces at the ready is that they are classic and timeless. Consider them the foundation of a good wardrobe. Throw on the white tee, white jeans, and a denim jacket, and add your own pop of color with your choice of jewelry. Or style your dress with the denim jacket and sneakers for a casual vibe. Jeans, the floral top, and neutral color sandals will have you ready for a date night, and the striped top, white pants, and sneakers are the perfect Saturday shopping outfit. As a result, you’re going to have countless outfit combinations! Woot!
