10 Spring Wardrobe Essentials

10 Spring Wardrobe Essentials

Winter is slowly going away. The snow and the cold are souvenirs as it is getting warmer out there. Time to ditch the big coats, scarfs and fluffy jumpers for some lighter pieces. Yet, what to wear as the new season starts? Few of your winter pieces will stay in your wardrobe. You still need some spring wardrobe essentials and we’re here to help you!

Our spring wardrobe essentials

#1 A white tee-shirt
We think a white tee-shirt is a classic that everybody should have in their wardrobe, no matter the season. It goes with everything and is really easy to style. Worn with the right accessories, a white tee can really be upgraded and elegant. Cotton and silk are perfect when temperatures are going up. We’d recommend to go for a tee that is a bit loose so that you feel comfortable and free to move. H&M is the perfect place to shop for basics.

#2 A denim jacket
We don’t have a denim jacket yet but Corinne is planning on getting one. We think it can give a badass touch to any outfit. Like turning a white dress in an not so innocent girly style. The great thing with denim jacket is that you can style them with many other pieces. It is even okay to wear a pair of jeans and a jacket altogether now. Add some pins to give it more color. Although Levi’s is a classic when it comes to denim, Gap and Primark offer more affordable alternatives.

#3 A skater dress
Corinne loves skater dresses. They are super comfortable, flattering and fitting. They comes in so many colors, shapes and styles. Even the most basic and simple dress can have a great effect when styled with the right accessories. Sneakers or wedges, few jewellery and a denim jacket will look great with it. Basically, how you accessorize it can make it a completely different outfit.

#4 Fashion sneakers
Sneakers are a go-to and literally go with everything: dresses, skirts, shorts, trousers, etc. Avoid wearing white sneakers when it’s raining though. They come in so many different colors that it is hard to choose but brights colors are perfect for spring. They are also super comfortable and so appropriate when you get back on your bike as the weather finally allows it. Adidas Superstars and Stan Smith are classics but you can find more affordable and different styles in pretty much every clothes stores nowadays.

#5 A classic trench
It’s not because spring is finally here that rain will magically stop pouring down and temperatures will suddenly go up. Spring can remain chilly for a little while. A trench won’t be too warm but will still protect you against the cold, rain and wind. Furthermore, it is a classic and a really elegant piece to have in your wardrobe. We all know how amazing Burberry’s trench can look. They are also quite expensive so for now, checking out H&M or Zara will do as well!

#6 A pair of wedge sandales
Wearing sandals immediately makes us feel like it is holiday. We love having our toes in the air and in the sun. High heels can be quite hard to master so wedges are the perfect alternative. They come in so many materials, fabrics, colors and style that there really is something to satisfy all tastes. They can also be worn with a lot of different clothes so get one pair and you’re good for the season. We also think they are really flattering and make one’s legs look great.

#7 A tote bag
There is no requirement of size. However, the bigger the better since you can stuff in more of your things. Also, it is spring so forget dark and neutral colors such as beige, black or navy and go for something brighter. Green, orange or yellow will add some color to an outfit. If you’re bold, you can go for some edgy print. We love when there is a strap to wear it cross-body or on the shoulder.

#8 A pair of boyfriend jeans
Boyfriend jeans are really comfortable and are perfect for a casual look. It is not much work and it gives a relax and lay down effect. It is not a hard piece to style and can be worn with flats, sneakers or heels equally. Lately, the trend has been to cropped boyfriend jeans but regular ones will do too. Just topstitch the end and it will look amazing. Boyfriend jeans are the new slim jeans and an essential this spring.

#9 A lacy dress
Lace is really delicate and beautiful. We think it is quite elegant and romantic. Yet again, lacy dresses are easy to style. Grungy with a biker jacket or classy with a blazer. They are appropriate for a date, work, a night out or just a normal day. They pretty much are a basic and must have for your wardrobe. There is not much more to see here.

#10 A pair of neon sunglasses
A spring has sprung, the sun has made a big come back. We don’t know if this statement applies to Scotland where Corinne was living until recently, but here in Manchester, there has been a bright and shining sun for few days in a row. The perfect occasion to wear sunglasses and bike through the city. Forget the boring black sunglasses and get yourself some more colorful onces! Just make a statement.

    This post has given me a great excuse to go shopping, as there’s a few items here that I don’t actually own! I really want a pair of neon sunnies now, they’re fab! I’m a big fan of wedges too, they definitely give off warm-weather vibes! Corinne, I hope you find the denim jacket of your dreams! Thanks for sharing!

  10. March 26, 2017 / 7:26 pm

    Oh what a great list! I definitely think building an outfit from something so simple like a white tee makes all the difference for versatility!

    For me, spring wardrobe essentials must be… dresses, floral patterns, sandals, and of course sunglasses!

  12. March 26, 2017 / 7:38 pm

    All the things you’ve listed are perfect for spring! I love layering a light grey coloured hoodie under my denim jacket, keeps you warm when the evenings get cooler without being too bulky!
    Lace dress are a must! Thought is so cold here in NI that I’m not sure I’ll get away with one until summer!
    Great post!

    I loved reading this post! I agree with having a white t-shirt as part of your Spring wardrobe. I have yet to find a white t-shirt that fits me well and isn’t completely see through. I have also been eyeing some denim jackets! I love how you can pair them up with some maxi dresses to get a really springy vibe!

    Loving this post! Particularly like the jeans.

  15. March 26, 2017 / 7:56 pm

    The stripy t-shirt in your first picture is beautiful! I agree with all of these – especially just a simple plain white tee! Always handy x

    Both of our recent posts seems to go hand in hand together 😉 but I seriously need to get a denim jacket. I keep hunting around charity shops hoping to find a really vintage looking one that isn’t going to break my bank account!

    I’m OBSESSED with sunglasses! This year instead of getting out my trusty rainmac, I’ve gone for a duster coat and I’m loving it! Good for those days where it’s sunny and nice but it’s deceivingly cold out!

  18. March 26, 2017 / 9:51 pm

    I agree with most of these, although I only have about 2- need to go shopping! I would also include a bomber jacket as those can come in useful as the weather gets a bit warmer and you need something to wear outside but nothing that will make you too hot!

  19. March 27, 2017 / 7:21 pm

    I’m loving boyfriend jeans! So cosy and versitle. Love this post xx

  20. March 28, 2017 / 7:41 am

    I think I’m missing the trench coat. Loving your spring wardrobe inspiration.

  21. March 28, 2017 / 12:15 pm

    I agree with most of these, especially a good denim jacket – I’ve just invested in a white one for nautical outfits. However, I feel lace has been overdone and we need something new, so I’d replace it with something with ruffles. 🙂

  22. March 28, 2017 / 6:05 pm

    Agree with all of these, I can’t wait for the sun & to wear summer clothes all the time! Xx

  23. March 28, 2017 / 6:05 pm

    Perfect choices! This is pretty much my wardrobe year round, actually. All except the heavy coats and jackets. It’s much too hot and humid here in Texas.

  24. March 28, 2017 / 6:09 pm

    You can never go wrong with a white t-shirt, a denim jacket and denim jeans! Love your choices! X


  25. March 28, 2017 / 6:10 pm

    Those are all gorgeous ideas! I may invest in some of those myself! Xx


  26. March 28, 2017 / 6:12 pm

    I can’t live without my ADIDAS! I highly recommend them and they’re really great year-round but especially in the spring with cute outfits!

  27. March 28, 2017 / 6:13 pm

    Can’t beat a classic white tee and skater dress !
    Love this !



  28. March 28, 2017 / 6:17 pm

    This is such a good post girls! Some really great staples in here for spring! X

  29. March 28, 2017 / 6:22 pm

    Can’t go wrong with a denim jacket, trainers and a white tshirt in spring!

  30. March 28, 2017 / 6:25 pm

    I agree with all of these, you’ve chosen some awesome items – love those neon sunglasses!

  31. March 28, 2017 / 6:25 pm

    Love love love this post! Definitely adding most of these to my wish list, dying to get a classic trench coat 🙂 xx

  32. March 28, 2017 / 6:39 pm

    Absolute love this, exactly what every girl needs for spring! My spring essential is definitely my denim jacket, kind of my go too!

  33. April 8, 2017 / 11:28 am

    Love this post, girls! I love skater dresses in the Spring because they’re SO comfortable and can be worn up or down – with tights, bare legs, heels or pumps. You can also grab them fairly cheaply on places like Boohoo xx

  34. April 15, 2017 / 9:02 pm

    Lovely post! Really need to invest in a denim jacket xx

  35. May 8, 2017 / 1:50 pm

    Love these ideas – such great basics! I’m really focusing on a simple colour palette in my wardrobe that way everything goes with everything!

  36. May 18, 2017 / 8:17 am

    Love the yellow tote bag! Going through a yellow phase at the moment x

  37. July 1, 2017 / 3:43 pm

    Great tips! I especially love the neon glasses, tote bag and wedges. I am an accessory loving mama!

  38. July 1, 2017 / 4:25 pm

    I love all of these pieces, especially the dresses! I totally agree that a white t-shirt can be dressed up or down. And of course you cannot forget the wedges!

  39. July 1, 2017 / 10:30 pm

    Great reminders for staples to have in my closet. A jean jacket is perfect now for when nights cool down after a warm day.

    Great list. I have to come up with something with this list of spring wardrobe essential.

  42. July 2, 2017 / 6:17 pm

    Love your selections – they are so stylish and nice!

  43. July 2, 2017 / 7:17 pm

    Some great items on this list, I need a pair of those neon sunglasses in my life ^_^

  44. July 2, 2017 / 11:46 pm

    I am all about leggings any time of the year but especially in the spring (and fall). I am also all about hoodies.

    July 3, 2017 / 2:27 am

    You ht the nail on the head. I would agree with all these essentials

  46. July 3, 2017 / 4:28 am

    You can never go wrong with a plain white t-shirt. I love that you have wedges in their but sneakers as well to create a different vibe.

  47. July 3, 2017 / 7:16 am

    Great your selection of spring wardrobe essentials! I’m missing a tote bag and wedge sandals, that needs urgent attention 🙂 Hope I’ll buy them until the next spring. Thank you for these recommendations!

  48. July 3, 2017 / 8:49 pm

    I love all of the pastels that you have here. They are beautiful and the lacy dress is definitely a spring fashion item.

  49. July 3, 2017 / 10:28 pm

    I love trenches and lace. Also odd combinations, like sneakers and lace. I never knew what a skater dress before I read this, but it’s super cute. Why is it called that?

    I have never owned a trench. Many of the men in our lives have though, and they always look sharp (on men or women).

  51. July 4, 2017 / 3:48 am

    YES! I cannot agree with you more! Especially the denim jacket, it has been a life saver on SO many occasions!

  52. July 4, 2017 / 11:59 am

    What a great list for a great summer day. I am 30% fashionable according to this list as I only have the white t-shirt, denim jacket and my own pair of jeans.😀

  53. July 7, 2017 / 8:38 pm

    I think white t-shirst are really essential for Spring because it’s cool and it can be paired with any accessories.
