Get Ready for Spring With These 12 Easy Outfits

Spring 2022’s fashion trends have been beckoning us since last September when the fashion week presentations were flooded with bold colours, dreamy dresses and low-key but luxurious separates. Though it may still be frosty outside, we can’t help but get excited about spring on the horizon and start planning our outfits for the upcoming season. 

We’re determined to find a way to start incorporating spring-ready looks into our wardrobes as early as possible—even if that means just adding a few bright colours to our outfits here and there. This year is still all about easy-to-wear dresses (particularly the knitted variety), but co-ords and skirts (mini or maxi) have also risen their way to the top of our shopping lists.

So if you’re looking for some new styling ideas to freshen up your looks for 2022, keep scrolling for our guide for what to wear this spring, plus a shopping list to achieve each look. Since most of these outfits revolve around classic everyday staples, we think you’ll also be able to re-create several of these spring outfits without spending anything.
