Spring is just around the corner. With fashion trends changing every other week, it can get exhausting to keep up with them. Are you unsure how to be sustainable but also keep up with the latest fashion trends? Well, how about starting with the must-have wardrobe essentials? 

Wardrobe essentials are items of clothing that are usually basic but improve the whole look of the outfit. Having a few essential items gives you the freedom to try on an array of styles that bring out your personality. Mix and match, layer, or wear it as it is; your outfits represent you as an individual. Outfits can be a hit or miss, depending on how much you know about fashion and the latest trends. Are you someone who opts for comfort or someone that prefers making a statement with their outfits? Maybe you are both. You will never know unless you experiment with different styles and clothes.

What comes to mind when you think of the Spring season? Pleasant weather, flowers in bloom, the warmth of the sun, chirping of birds, etc. Keeping this image in mind, wouldn’t you want your Spring outfits to represent the season? 

Upgrade your look this season with these wardrobe essentials

Here is a list of clothes that you ought to have this Spring-

1. Basic white/black T-shirt

It is a must-have for all seasons. Owning a white/black tee can do wonders for your wardrobe. It is sustainable, and affordable and vamps up your whole outfit. You can opt for a plain white/black t-shirt, a cropped top, or both! Pair your black/white t-shirt with denim jeans, pastel trousers/cargo pants with sneakers, and you’re good to go! Want a more feminine look? Wear a cute denim skirt or any skirt of your choice.

2. Floral patterned dress

2022 saw a craze in floral prints, and it hasn’t died down yet! We saw a rise in cottage core, and in 2023 we will continue to dress in pretty floral-patterned dresses. The floral aesthetic is evergreen and will keep trending for years to come. If you haven’t already, purchase any of these (if your budget allows, get them all!)—short-length, midi, or full-length floral printed dresses. Pair it with sneakers, pumps, or strapped block heels.

3. Jeans

A good pair of jeans is a must-have wardrobe essential for everyone. Straight jeans and flared jeans are trending currently. Get a pair of your choice if you don’t already have one! Fitted denim is a must-have wardrobe essential. 100% cotton ones last longer and are more durable. If you prefer a little more stretch in your denim jeans, 95% cotton with a 5% spandex composition is preferable.

4. Cotton shirts

Casual or formal, cotton shirts are one of the most comfortable wardrobe essentials you can own. Keeping up with the Spring theme, in 2023, fill your wardrobe with light hues. Lime green, lilac, white, light yellow, baby pink, and nude tones, will bring out the spring-summery vibes. Pair your cotton shirts with baggy trousers, cotton or denim shorts, midi skirts, etc.

5. Midi skirts

Flowy floral midi skirts with thigh-high slits look absolutely adorable paired with a simple crop top or cardigan. If you want to try out the “girl-next-door” look, midi skirts are a wardrobe essential. You can wear it in summer, autumn, and winter too. They can look chic and classy, depending on how you style them. With style comes comfort, and midi skirts give just that. Choosing the perfect midi skirt for your body type can get confusing, but it all depends on how confidently you pull off the look.

6. Shorts

Denim shorts are a must-have. Need a casual outfit for a get-together with friends or a quick trip to the grocery store? Shorts are your best friend. They are comfy and chic. You can easily pair it with t-shirts, shirts, tops, or blouses. If you don’t own denim shorts, cotton shorts are a good alternative too. Style it with a pair of sneakers, flats, or comfy loafers. High-waisted shorts accentuate the curves that you already have, while low-rise shorts can make your torso look longer giving you a leaner silhouette. Choose shorts that will suit your body type.

7. White shoes

A staple for your wardrobe. White shoes look good with jeans, shorts, dresses, and skirts. If you are willing to improve your style, investing in a good pair of white shoes is the way to go. Recommended shoes would be the Nike Air Force 1s, Fila disruptors, or the good old Reebok and Puma sneakers. White shoes may not seem like statement pieces, but no one can deny that it pulls together the whole outfit.

8. Nude block heels

Doesn’t matter if you are a heel person or not, owning a pair of nude block heels will make all the difference to your wardrobe. Block heels are comfier than high heels. Be it pants, jeans, or a dress, nude-colored heels elevate the outfit’s look. There are various designs to choose from different brands. Design, quality, and longevity should be the criteria you look for while purchasing any design of heels.


Now that you have an idea, about what wardrobe essentials to purchase, remember to be sustainable. You can always opt for high-end stores and brands, but thrifting is the best way to find good clothes if you are on a budget. Experiment with different Spring-summer styles and find out what is best for you. Mind you, to pull any outfit off the key is to be confident!
