Spring wardrobe essentials

It’s time to get ahead with your wardrobe and start planning your spring looks. Multiple layers, coats, and hats will soon be a thing of the past, and we’ll be looking forward to light layers and lighter days. 

Buying a whole new wardrobe isn’t exactly the best thing for your bank balance or the environment either. Instead, we want to add selected styles to help reinvent the clothing we already own and ensure that you have an abundance of outfit combinations to wear throughout the spring season. 

Make your wardrobe work hard for you. With our pick of the best spring wardrobe essentials, you can create multiple outfits that make you feel and look your best.

Spring wardrobe essentials 

Trench coat 

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a spring wardrobe guide that doesn’t include a trench coat, they’re versatile, comfortable and look incredibly chic. A trench coat is ideal for those colder-than-usual springtime days, what’s more, they’re never going to look outdated. You’ll have this item for years to come, and it looks just as good dressed down with jeans for a weekend look or paired with smart trousers for an office look that’s smart and polished. 

White t-shirt 

A simple white t-shirt is a must-have for your springtime wardrobe, you’ll find yourself wearing it day after day, so you may need to pick up duplicates of this item. Another versatile piece that you can dress up or down. 

Ballet flats 

Add a pair of ballet flats to your spring wardrobe. They will help you pull smarter looks together while still providing comfort and wearability for everyday wear. 

Button-down shirt 

A button-down shirt is a must-have item for every wardrobe, no matter the season. White looks great for spring, but look at beautiful striped options, too, which can add an interesting dimension to your look. 

White trainers 

You’ll probably find that you reach for your white trainers most of the time through spring. They work so well with jeans, pants, skirts, and dresses. Gum-soled designs are having a resurgence at the moment, but any white sneaker will work well. Comfort is key here. 

Lightweight knit 

Whether you opt for a jumper or cardigan, a lightweight knit is ideal for layering over your outfits when the temperature is cooler. Plus, it’s great as a styling item, too, with your white t-shirt peaking out or worn over the button-down shirt too. Choose a neutral colour here that can be worn with multiple looks throughout the season. 

Medium wash denim 

We’re just detailing the wash here because the fit all comes down to personal preference. A medium-wash pair of jeans will look great at this time of year and can be worn with both dark and lighter tops and jackets. Wide-leg, straight, and mom-style fits are the most popular at the moment, but it all comes down to personal preference. 

Black belt 

Help pull your looks together and give an outfit a little more structure with the addition of a black belt with metal hardware detail. Gold or silver, it’s a personal preference. But this is a piece that will help to break up outfits and help to ensure that you look like you’ve put more thought into your look than you necessarily have. 

Neutral blazer 

A neutral-coloured blazer will make a great addition to your spring wardrobe as it’s another piece that can be styled for both smart and casual settings. It’s a great piece that can be worn in the day and dressed up for an evening. Use the simple trick of ruching sleeves and keeping them in place with a hair bobble around your arm to give your blazer a more elevated look for the evening. 

Wide-leg pants

Wide-legged pants make a great alternative to wearing jeans day after day. They look so stylish when paired with a simple white t-shirt, a pair of trainers and a jacket of any type thrown over the top. 

Light coloured denim 

Spring is the perfect time to add some lighter-coloured denim to your wardrobe, and we think an off-white colour is the most versatile. You’ll get plenty of wear out of these, wearing them with both your spring and summer items and some of your winter and autumn wardrobe too. Light-coloured denim needs to be quite thick and looks best if there isn’t a lot of stretch to it. Choose fits that are looser for the most modern approach to denim, and don’t be afraid to pair them with black and navy for a chic monochromatic outfit. 

Denim shirt or jacket 

Pick a piece that you’re going to get the most wear out of it, whether that be a jacket or just a thinner denim shirt. It’s hard to go wrong with a Canadian tuxedo, your denim shirt paired with jeans, you can even break the look up by wearing a lightweight turtleneck underneath the shirt. But they also look great worn over dresses, skirts, and trousers too. The great thing about a denim shirt is that it can be used as a throw-over piece or buttoned up and tucked in like a regular shirt. 

Hoop earrings

A small pair of hoops, either huggie or a bolder molten style, looks great with most outfits and adds a touch of glam to your look. Again, like the belt, it’s a completely personal choice whether you’d prefer gold or silver. 


With the sun shining that little bit more often, you’ll find a pair of sunglasses are needed to help protect your eyes. Buy a pair with UV protection and a shape that complements your face shape and will never go out of style. 

Before you start picking out statement pieces that make you swoon for spring, lock down your spring wardrobe essentials and ensure that you’ve got an array of outfits on rotation with these must-have picks.
