Four different seasons with four ever-changing sets of style trends can threaten to burn a hole in even the savviest shopper’s pocket. Well, fear not, because you have it on good authority (from, well, us) that this spring’s wardrobe reshuffle needn’t take more than nine carefully picked items. Yep, you can get your spring style entirely on point with items that you already have in your wardrobe.
From the coat that defines the season to the trainers you’ll wear forever, these are the pieces you’ll need for your springtime capsule, and they all work beautifully together. Even better is you might own a lot of them already, so this will be a good opportunity to remind yourself of the pieces you might have forgotten about ahead of the season kicking into gear. It might still be winter, but it never hurts to prepare, right?
Keep scrolling to see the concise and effective spring wardrobe that will do all the hard work for you, and shop our favourite pieces for each of the elements.
1. Trench Coats
Style Notes: We hate to put a damper on things, but even when your woolly coat feels too heavy, you’ll probably still need a coat for spring—and there’s really no other choice than a trench coat this year. Chic detective vibes incoming. Use yours to elevate your denim or to refresh your knitted dresses.
No need to size up—this option is already perfectly oversized.
