11 spring closet essentials you didn't know you needed
Pack the puffer jackets and tube socks away — it's time to enjoy the sun.
Now that we're headed into spring, we need to equip our wardrobes for the new season. Sure, you know lighter-weight fabrics and warm-weather staples are musts, but what exactly does that entail?
From everyday staples, like the perfect tee and the best jeans, to bolder items, like fun sunglasses and statement shoes, these spring wardrobe essentials will have you covered well beyond the season.
1. The Sundress
Whatever the silhouette, style, or slit, a sundress can be worn for many a springtime occasion: picnic, date night, BBQ, or even wedding.
SHOP: Plus Black Floral Print Cupped Split Detail Midi Dress, $55, available at
2. The White Jeans
We don't believe in that old adage that says you can't wear white after Labor Day. We do, however, believe white jeans are a must from spring to summer. Pair it with a casual crop top or your fanciest blouse.

Nothing says good springtime vibes than a floral print and a very bold message written on your shoe. Whether you're going to a festival or on a picnic, these shoes will impress.

4. The Airy Blouse
Winter's favorite cottagecore top is back...but with a twist. Yes, puffy sleeves and volume are still on trend, but now lightweight fabrics, cutouts, and backless options can help beat the heat.

7. The Jumpsuit
When you're indecisive about what to wear, an easy go-to that's appropriate for almost every occasion: the billowy jumpsuit. Dress it up with accessories and heels or down with sneakers and denim.

9. The Perfect Tee
The T-shirt often gets overlooked in a closet, but it's probably one of the few items you can wear every day. Invest in a slouchy tee that is breathable, cuts in all the right areas, and can pair with jeans or even a fancy satin skirt.
SHOP: Whisper Cotton V-Neck T-Shirt, $10.32, available at
