With a warmer season ahead, now is the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe staples. Getting seasonal essentials right creates a dependable foundation that makes it easy to build outfits around. From lightweight top layers to the perfect pair of sneakers, we’re highlighting six key pieces you’ll need for spring.
Spring is on its way, and that means you’ll need a few functional top layers for those in-between days when the weather is unpredictable. From classic denim to utility-inspired outerwear, there are several styles to choose from based on your personal aesthetic.
Another great way to layer for spring days is with lightweight shirts and sweaters. At the top of our list are retro-inspired polo shirts, though we also love a sweater in a neutral hue. It’s easy to toss on or take off if there’s a change in the weather—and patterns like stripes add some graphic appeal to any outfit.
No matter what you have going on, a fresh supply of crisp button-downs is a must-have for spring. Mini checks and stripes bring a pop of color to your outfits, while a more understated neutral is a great choice for a workwear look. You’ll want to stock up on this wardrobe essential as you can literally wear them any day of the week.
Whether you’re headed to work or relaxing on the weekend, comfort is key. Add subtle pops of color to your spring outfits with the season’s colored jeans and chinos. (And don’t be afraid of white—it’s versatile, fresh, and easy to keep clean with our white laundry how-to.)
On the subject of comfort, is there anything better than your favorite pair of jeans? When you’re going for a casual look, you can’t go wrong with denim. Spring’s best styles have been recast for the season in lighter washes for a casual, laidback take that you can wear with everything from polos to sweaters.
They create a clean finish for your spring outfits. From casual to more dressed-up styles, you can’t go wrong. While a canvas slip-on is perfect for running errands on the weekend, a leather pair in a rich earth tone is polished enough to replace your dress shoes for the office. And classic white is another option you’ll wear on repeat all season long.
