Spring is officially here and even though we’re all currently cooped up due to COVID-19, longer evenings, brightly coloured blooms and the sounds of birds chirping in the distance are definitely something to smile about. We can’t wait until we get the chance to break out our cute outfits and get dressed up again, but until then we think it’s the perfect time to prepare and take advantages of some of the amazing spring sales going on right now. With a new season comes new fashion and the opportunity to refresh your wardrobe. Need a little inspiration? Look no further. Here are 13 of the most stylish staples for you to stock up on this spring.
We’re big fans of this edgy alternative to the plain white tee because it can be worn for any and all occasions. Looking for a polished look? Pop it under a blazer. Need an outfit for brunch (or a digital sunday brunch atm) with your besties? Dress it up with a nice pair of jeans like these and heels like these. Whichever way you choose to rock it, this style is a true crowd pleaser.

A classic button-down shirt is a must-have. It’s casual yet sophisticated, making it the most simple way to make a statement this spring. Whether you go for a crisp white, a pop of colour, or even a pin-stripe, its versatility makes it the perfect base to build upon, this season and beyond.

3. Lightweight Sweater
We’re all desperate to bid farewell to our bulky sweaters and chunky cable knits. But when the weather doesn’t quite cooperate, the lightweight sweater is there to save the day. It’s warm enough to layer up with on chillier evenings, but breathable enough to wear when the sun decides to come out. It’s even great to wear on those cozy quarantine days inside your house. Pair with your favourite jeans or a floral dress for a signature spring look that’s sure to impress.

4. Tie Front Cardigan
A bold take on the original, the tie front cardigan is a spring style that we absolutely adore. We’ve been seeing fashion lovers everywhere try this cardi style out and we completely understand why. We love its sexy silhouette that shows a hint of skin, and the playful bow that ties it all together. Fuzzy cardis, pastel colors, and satin cardis are always welcome in our closets.

When it comes to wardrobe staples, jeans tend to be one of the usual suspects. But trust us when we say this pair is far from typical. The crossover style offers a literal twist on the classic jean and features a cool asymmetric button closure. It’s fashion forward, but versatile enough to wear everyday, making it a quintessential pick to add to your denim collection this spring.

*Slip* into the spring style we just can’t get enough of: the silk slip dress. The resurgence of 90’s fashion brought back this transitional piece and we’re completely obsessed with it. Its femininity and flowiness make it ideal for this season, but its simplicity allows for it to be worn any time of the year. The best part? It comes in just about every single colour and print you could dream of, so it’s a great foundation for countless outfits. Dress it up with some heels or keep it casual with a pair of sneakers.

Blazers are definitely having a moment right now and it’s all with good reason. With every passing season, it’s a trend we continue to stand by. Perfect for both work and play, a blazer can polish off a look in a snap. Right now, we’re especially loving styles that are spring forward. Our favourites come in lightweight fabrics like linen and brighter colours like white, pink and beige.
9. Trench Coat
Spring weather can be unpredictable. One day it’s all blue skies and sunshine and the next it’s dark clouds and rain. So why not be prepared and look effortlessly chic while doing so? Swap your heavy winter parka out for a trench coat – an ideal style to wear to work when we are free from quarantine, on rainy days, or to any of your spring soirees.

10. Padded Weave Bag
The Bottega Veneta cult favourite Cassette bag truly paved the way for this trend. It’s a fun play on the basket weave styles we’ve been seeing in previous seasons, but it incorporates soft volume for spring. Softness, both in colour and texture, is a trend that we will continue to see throughout 2020. So whether you go for a tote, pouch, or crossbody – the padded weave bag is sure to carry you through the whole year.

11. Sunglass Chains
Before this trend came along, we were sure that jewelry was only meant for decorative purposes. But now, we have an accessory that offers up both functionality and fashion. Worn by celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Rihanna, sunglass chains have become one of this season’s must haves. We’ve seen them adorned in everything from pretty pearls to beautiful beads, but our favourite has to be this style from unlock your legend.

Spring weather means the return of the sandal and a pair of slides is an absolute must. For times when a stiletto heel feels a little too fancy, this option offers a middle ground with its simplicity and versatility. This season, our favourites come in a mix of materials that are both comfortable and chic. We’ll see the return of the animal skin styles we saw in winter, as well as a take on the padded footwear that was so prominent in Proenza Schouler’s SS20 collection.
13. Strappy Heels
If you need to add a little spring to your step, look no further than the strappy heel. It instantly elevates all of your spring looks – in more ways than one. This season’s best come in neon, animal print and iridescent styles.
