I’ve talked a lot on Instagram about how you need to elevate your basics! Why? Basics are necessary and comfortable, but they don’t have to be boring! How can you express yourself if your clothes are sleepy?! I’m sharing 5 pieces you need in your spring closet that will enable you to create endless interesting spring outfits! Here we go!
If you want to recreate these looks or shop any of these pieces, I’ve linked everything under each photo & added more options ad various price points!
Spring Closet Essential: Puff Sleeve Denim Jacket
Thank goodness for my late-night shopping habit, or I wouldn’t have found the time to discover this gem! I really wanted a unique denim jacket, and I almost went for one with pearl details. But after much deliberation and visualizing the jackets in my wardrobe, I knew I had to grab this one! It is the BEST denim jacket I have ever had, and that is saying a lot! I’ve had so many good ones over the years, and I still love my oversized one!
Add this puff sleeve cropped denim jacket to your spring closet and you’re sure to turn some heads! Plus, enjoy an instant confidence-boost as soon as I throw it on! The cut is ultra-flatting, and you can create endless spring outfits with this denim jacket!
Spring Closet Essential: Straight Leg Mom Jeans
I have been over skinny jeans for at least year. While I still think they have an occasion and place, I no longer think they are for everyday. Straight leg jeans are much more flattering, chic, and on-trend! I found these high-waisted straight leg mom jeans on Amazon, and they are so good! The denim quality seems legit to me, and these jeans are reminiscent of 90s Calvins. There is no stretch to them, but they aren’t stiff.
If the high-waisted, clean-cut mom jeans aren’t your style, I linked some other straight leg jean styles below!

Spring Closet Essential: White Quilted Shoulder Bag
There is no question that a good, classic shoulder bag can elevate any look you put on! My bag literally transforms both of the VERY different spring outfits below! See for yourself!

Spring Closet Essential: Loose Neutral Cardigan
This cardigan is by far one of my best spring purchases! I throw this Aerie pocket cardigan over pretty much everything! If you’ve already got a cream cardigan in your spring closet, it also comes in grey!
Its buttons, pockets and drop shoulders will totally elevate your style! Seriously, throw it over anything from dresses to rompers and jumpsuits to blouses to camis! Leave it open or button it up. You need it!
Spring Closet Essential: Basic Peplum Tops
So much more than a plain white tee! (Although those play a huge role in my wardrobe as well!) Layer them with cardigans or biker jackets, wear them alone, pair them with straight midi skirts…
I happened to grab this peplum tee from Target! (It also comes in tie-dye and peach!) It is quite cropped, so be sure to pair it with high-waisted bottoms.
