Time to Refresh! The 5 Essential Pieces to Add to Your Wardrobe This Spring

Every spring I like to go through my wardrobe and give it a bit of a refresher. I go through my closet and pull out any pieces that are stained or no longer good quality and take stock of what I need to replace. While these “needs” change with trends and seasons, I always try to pick items that work seamlessly with the pieces I already have in order to maximize my wardrobe potential.

After browsing the sales and taking a look at my closet, I made my list for what’s needed this season. Here are the 5 essential items I’m adding to my wardrobe this spring:

Shop: Jacket

1 – The Field Jacket. Field jackets are the perfect complement to any outfit and are highly versatile pieces to have on hand for spring. They’re lightweight and easily layered, plus they are always on trend no matter the season.

Shop: T’shirt

2 – The White T-Shirt. White t-shirts are the most basic wardrobe staple that are an absolute must-have. I own more of these than I would care to admit, but they are the quintessential piece to layer under sweaters, jackets, cardigans, button-downs – you name it. They are also an item that I don’t believe you could ever own too many of! V-necks, scoop necks, fitted, loose, etc., there are so many highly affordable variations.

Shop: Dress

3 – The T-Shirt Dress. Every spring I like to add a trendy dress or two to refresh the wardrobe. This year’s pick? The t-shirt dress. These things are fantastically easy to dress up or down by adding a jean jacket or pairing it with cut sandals or slip-on sneakers – the options are endless. Added bonus: they are ridiculously comfy, so it’s a win-win!

4 – Slip-On Sneakers. These trendy little sneaks are positively adorbs. They are easy to slip on in a rush, look fantastic with jeans, dresses, shorts and skinnies too, and they are super comfortable. There are crazy cute options out there like patterned prints, animal prints, and details with bows and stitching – name your style and you’ll find it. Plus, they are really affordable so you don’t have to break the bank to add some shoe style to your look.

Shop: Tote

5 – The Tote. When you’re refreshing a wardrobe, don’t forget the accessories. I like to replace handbags and totes as they begin to show wear-and-tear, just to keep a pristine look for work, but I also like to add a bit of trendiness to the season too. Totes are fabulous for this because they allow you to carry everything all-in-one while still maintaining a polished look.

There are countless ways to keep your wardrobe in tip-top shape but taking a regular pulse on your closet collection and replacing things as needed is the easiest way to stay on top of it. Plus, it’s a great excuse to get out there and shop. You’re welcome. 😉 Happy shopping, my friends!

    I agree with everything on this list! Field jackets — where had you been all my life until two years ago? They look so cute over white tees, or lace dresses, or striped shirts, or so many other things!!
