Spring is almost here, and it’s time for a wardrobe refresh! Nothing feels as refreshing as shedding off those winter layers and putting on those lighter pieces for spring that make you feel alive. See this guide for what classic spring wardrobe essentials items you need to update your closet with that make you look and feel incredible!
Lightweight women’s short-sleeve blouses are perfect for spring. You can wear it over a base layer or tuck it in under a cardigan. Wear it untucked with skinny pants or leggings, or tuck it in for a smart look with some cropped pants. Pair it with a cami and shorts on a warmer spring day, or wear it for a splash of style under a lightweight denim jacket or blazer. Adding a print instantly jazzes up your wardrobe for spring, and a versatile blouse is a great way to do it. What’s more, it’s an easy way to add in a trendy look without going overboard. Ideas for spring print tops are checks, florals, geometric or abstract shapes, or subtle patterns in spring colors.
The temperatures can often be unpredictable in spring, with one day promising the bloom of summer and the next throwing you back into a chill reminiscent of the winter you’re ready to say goodbye to. With that in mind, a fleece jacket is an ideal layering piece for spring. You can wear it over virtually anything (or under another coat or jacket if the temps are really brisk), and it’s an essential comfortable jacket. Fleece jackets are also available in a bevy of bright colors, pastel shades, prints, and more, giving them a springlike vibe you just can’t ignore. If you need something dressier than fleece, consider a light sweater.
Put a swing in your step with a springtime skirt! While pencil skirts, denim minis, knee-length skirts, and more all have their place in a woman’s wardrobe, as the fun, flirty vibe of a swingy skirt with some movement just shouts spring. The length is up to you, but for the best look that’s classy and versatile, look for a skirt that falls to at least mid-thigh, knee-length, calf-length, or even ankle or maxi lengths can all work well for a spring skirt. Consider fairly lightweight materials, keeping in mind that you can always pair the skirt with tights or leggings if the temps are still a bit chilly. Small prints, pastel colors, and light-colored neutrals all make great styles for a spring skirt with some movement.
When you’re ready to say hello to spring, nothing says it better than a pair of cute women’s cropped pants. These are excellent because they transition well for the season and look great for both work and casual wear. They are also ideal to pair with a wide range of tops, from classic tees to lightweight sweater sets to the cute print blouse you picked up for the season. You can also pair them with flats, sandals, and even casual shoes like canvas tennis shoes for a great look.
Floral prints are ideal for spring. The looks and feel make them lovely and vibrant. You can find rich colors, pastels, black-and-white patterns, or neutrals to mesh with your personal style. Popular floral women’s dresses for spring include wrap dresses, empire waist midi and knee-length dresses, sheath styles, and more. You can throw on a denim jacket, vest, or lightweight sweater over a floral dress if needed for a great spring look.
Skinny or straight-leg jeans are a classic staple for spring outfits. Rather than donning your black, jewel-colored, or dark denim, however, choose fresh looks for the season. Crisp white works with everything and has a light, spring look. Tan and other light neutrals also work well for an understated look. If you want to get a little creative, choose shades like baby blue, pale lavender, pink, yellow, peach, or green. Leggings look great with a crisp white tee, simple button-up blouse, or classic women’s polo shirt.
Classy and with a slightly nautical vibe, a striped tee, either in a long- or short-sleeve style is quintessentially spring. It works beautifully with denim, trousers, simple skirts, crops, and even shorts for casual wear. The crisp stripes dress up even a casual look, and it can easily be worn with simple or chunky accessories to elevate or change up the style.
Spring equals rain; there are no two ways about it. Be ready for a downpour in style by investing in a cute women's rain jacket. Lined versions are great for early spring when temperatures can be quite chilly, while a simple packable version can be your trusty companion in late spring when temps are warmer, but the chance of a spring shower could still pop up at any moment. Look for high-quality designs with solid zippers or snaps, a hood, and a great color or print you love.
Whether you want to add a subtle splash to your spring outfits with a floral top or pastel pants or want to revamp your wardrobe completely, there are plenty of stylish options for spring. Get ready to welcome the warmer weather with a new style shining through all thanks to these women's spring wardrobe essentials.
