T-shirts may not be the most exciting articles of clothing to consider when pulling together your spring wardrobe, but they’ll take you a long way. Once you pair them with the rest of your thoughtfully chosen wardrobe, you’ll be grateful to have a well-stocked arsenal of neutral basics.

In addition to black tees and white tees, throw in other neutral tops to mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe. Navy or slate blue are great neutrals and you can’t go wrong with gray, either. It goes against the idea of choosing neutrals, but do you love the pop of a pattern? Add a couple of striped tees to your stash.

Bring Back the Bodysuit

Another must-have piece of separates clothing is the bodysuit. Bodysuits are ideal for layering because they create a smooth line as they “tuck” into your bottoms. Like your tee shirts, they can be worn with nearly anything in your closet, including a variety of blazers, cardigans, skirts, and trousers. A sleek black bodysuit can elevate a pair of jeans, too.

Select Some Stylish Button-Downs

Button-down shirts can be business casual, dressy casual, or just plain casual. It all depends on how you style them. Due to their versatility, however, you need several of them in your spring wardrobe. A white button-down is classic. Try to find a black version that you love, as well. If it suits your personality and sense of style, then splash out on patterned button-downs, too. Once again, stripes will never steer you wrong. Feel free to get more whimsical with the addition of floral prints or polka dots.

Throw a Cardi Party in Your Closet

When it comes to selecting separates clothing, you’re seeking versatile pieces. That’s particularly true in spring since it’s such a transitional season. In the beginning, it can still be a bit chilly. As spring progresses toward summer, however, you need clothing that adapts to the higher temperatures. You need separates that can “switch-hit”.

That’s why spring is the perfect time to throw a cardi party! With a few cardigans in basic colors, you get an easy, fresh style all year long. Cardigans layer beautifully and can provide just the right amount of warmth and weight. They also go with everything from capris and jeans to office apparel. Play around with jewelry and other accessories, such as lightweight scarves. You can turn the right cardigan into an out-of-this-world statement piece.

Be Free and Easy in Your Favorite Jeans

Jeans are a springtime staple, so don’t hesitate to include your favorites in your spring wardrobe. Whether you’re a fan of mom jeans, relaxed fit, or skinny jeans, there are no wrong answers. The only thing to make sure of is that you have an array of casual and dressy tops to wear with your jeans, along with plenty of accessories and shoes to keep your outfits looking fresh.

Spend Time Picking Out Casual Dress Bottoms

Jeans can get you through a lot, but your clothing separates can’t all be laid-back. Although you don’t have to stock your wardrobe with fancy items, you need semi-casual dress bottoms, such as black or navy-blue trousers and a few pencil skirts. It won’t hurt to mix in a pair of khakis or at least buff-colored pants. Add a t-shirt and a blazer or cardigan, and you’ll look chic and ready for spring.

Invest in a Suit or Three

Speaking of blazers, why not enhance your spring wardrobe with a couple of suits? They can be trouser suits or skirt suits but stick to neutrals. Since it’s spring, you can incorporate gray suits or lighter shades of blue in addition to black, charcoal, and navy. That way, you can wear the bottoms and jackets separately and with dozens of different tops, shoes, and statement pieces.

Splurge on Seasonal Cocktail Wear

Scores of events happen in spring, including graduations, weddings, and parties thrown for no particular reason. That means you’ll need a few pieces of spring-friendly formal wear – or at least semi-formal wear. You don’t need to fill your closet with cocktail dresses and suits, but it’s a good idea to have a few of them at the ready.
