Feeling ready to elevate your personal style with the ultimate spring staples? Well, you’re in luck because that’s exactly what we have in store for you today.
It’s nice, isn’t it? Walking around town with denim shorts, a denim jacket, and a straw bag, showcasing your picture-perfect spring outfit in spring staple pieces… Good, but is it one that will make you super trendy this year and super outdated the next? Or is it one that will stand the test of time and cement your timeless style?
Sorry for asking too many questions, but I always aim for the latter. So that should explain why I felt the urge to put together the best timeless pieces and redefine everyday wear.
From your new favorite white t-shirts to that neutral handbag you’ve wanted for a long time. With some great options for when you need an extra layer of warmth, these versatile pieces will convince you that you don’t need a lot to look like A LOT. Here are your spring staples 2023.
Get your Spring staples ready for the new season. With these pieces, your outfits will blossom every single day.
DON’T GET CAUGHT WITHOUT THESE SPRING STAPLES THIS SEASON:
1. Breton Stripe Tee
Whether you already know it or you have never thought of it this way, let me clear the air. The striped tee to your spring capsule wardrobe is like the little black dress to your evening one – easy to match and always a good choice. Get this on your list of capsule wardrobe essentials.
2. Basic White T-Shirts
It’s cool if you love following runway trends and piling up bright pink over neon green, but buying a significant amount of basic white T-shirts is like step one when you choose to hit the minimalist road. I really don’t know why I put it under number 2, especially when it’s the number 1 of spring staple items. But you get it – it’s versatile, simple, and never goes out of style.
3. Classy White Shirt
If there’s one thing you can wear to that important meeting, to the two baby showers this weekend, and to your aunt’s 70 birthday party looking like you’ve got it all together, it’s the classy white shirt. It works just fine with leggings, denim, and skirts. The same applies to boots, sneakers, and block heels. Making it the top of the fashion essentials.

4. Teddy Oversized Crewneck Sweater
Since spring is definitely close to summer – but it’s definitely not summer – you need something for those is-it-warm-or-is-it-cold kinds of nights. Replace the cashmere sweater with a cotton crew. Opting for a ridiculously soft and incredibly comfortable piece is a MUST.
5. Breton Stripe Sweater
Adding a striped sweater to your list with wardrobe essentials is… well… essential. Pair it with your favorite boyfriend jeans and white sneakers. You may have 138 unread emails to get back to, but you will be having the best #OOTD. Who knew it was that simple?
6. Knitted Zip Cardigan
Cardigans can be pretty particular, but you’ll find the right one when you see it. I just got this exact one, and I believe it’s a MUST-HAVE closet staple in any wardrobe. Two words to describe it? Beautiful and classy. Plus, it can be worn all year round, so it’s a long-term win-win.

7. Neutral Oversized Blazer
Pantone’s 2023 color is Viva Magenta, but I found the perfect minimalist option! It’s something I like to define as dark mint (although it might be light green). Wear it on shirts, trousers, hats, everything. But let’s start with the blazer. These spring staple jackets will be sold out quickly. So RUN, don’t walk.
8. Belted Trench Coat
Let me introduce you to another beautiful investment from your new favorite brand, THEORY which cares about our environment. I usually say it super often, but when it’s good for the Planet, it’s also good for us. And by ‘it’ I mean a cream belted trench coat, there’s no other way to put it. I LOVE this one! A wardrobe must-have for every woman.
9. Cropped Vegan Leather Pants
Put the ‘P’ in perfect with these cropped vegan leather pants. I’m pretty sure the joke is not that funny when I got it out of my head and typed it down, but you can be sure to catch all eyes on you with a total black look. All-black lightweight sweater, black Converse sneakers, black baseball cap, black belated coat. Hailey Bieber would approve.

10. Beige Wide Leg Pants
Another must-have? Wide-leg pants! I have this exact pair in beige and black, and I can attest they are the most comfortable and flattering ones I own. They come in two lengths, so if you’re petite like me, opt for the 30 -inch ones. Btw, you can (read: should) get a matching new blazer! Highly recommend!
11. Cropped Denim Jeans
It doesn’t matter if you are more of a dress girl. Owning a few pairs of straight jeans = solving all your fashion crises. These come in three different sizes – super cool because there are a lot of petite and tall girls who are not OK with the standard sizes. Plus, Everlane’s jeans are amazing – soft, stretchy, and the most comfortable fit you could ever ask for. Speaking from a personal experience.
12. Midi Skirt
I don’t know what your take is on the matter, but the midi skirt is back, and I’ve recently rediscovered them as well. Get one with belt loops and a small, back slit, so you let it do the talking. Black is always an option. However, white and pastel shades are the IT pieces of the season. Add a statement jewelry piece, and you’ll be street-style-ready for whatever the day has to offer.

13. Everyday Sneakers
Tbh, what are you doing with your life if you don’t have everyday sneakers to wear – literally, not figuratively – all the time? Get ones with a solid rubber sole to feel comfortable with every step you take (and every move you make), and in a favorite neutral color. If you want to keep up with the IG trends, go for the Adidas Samba ones.
14. Cream Sandals
Once warm weather rolls around, we need to embody not only the carefree spirit but the carefree way of styling too. Leave the strappy sandals behind and get yourself a pair of open-toed platform sandals, so you can top off any outfit look on that next weekend road trip. Comfort is not up for discussion, girls.

15. Timeless Sunglasses
Hiding behind a pair of timeless sunglasses is waaaaay better than hiding behind a pair of regular sunglasses. Go for classic lines, rectangle frames, and black color, like this gem from PRADA. They are the only accessory you’ll ever need in spring. And in every other season, for that matter. Definitely a necessity when looking for how to build a classic wardrobe.
16. Versatile Bag
A versatile bag is a very subjective term, but we know it’s definitely not those super-small- cannot-even-fit-my-phone-in-it bags (I guess I have something for hyphens). My personal favorite is a neutral tote bag you can use for running errands around town (grocery shopping counts too) and for your next date night.
With the arrival of a new season usually comes the confusion of exactly what to wear, when to wear, and how to wear it.
I hope my edit with spring wardrobe staples will give you the wardrobe update of your dreams. I hope it can also breathe a little bit of new life into some long-forgotten outfits. Even if it’s just a floral top, a light jacket, a sweater blazer, or slide heels. Happy Spring!
