The Perfect Spring Outfit | 5 Items Your Spring Wardrobe Needs

Ahhh, spring… my favourite time of year! And one of my favourite things about spring is the fashion. Pretty pastels, ditsy florals and all things frilly – I love the colourful and feminine vibe of spring fashion.

There are a lot of things that I love about dressing up in spring. Today I’ll be sharing 5 fashion essentials to complete your spring wardrobe.


1. A pretty floral shirt

Nothing says SPRING more than a cute floral print. And as the weather starts to get warmer, a pretty floral shirt is the perfect addition to any spring wardrobe. I recently came across the spring shirt of DREAMS on the Topshop website, which has everything you could ever want in a spring shirt. It’s got the cutest floral embroidery detailing, frills, lace, ruffles, and three-quarter length sleeves that are perfect for warmer spring days, or layering up when it’s still a bit chilly. What more could you want!?

2. A  pink trench coat

Trench coats are great for spring. They’re the perfect layering piece over thin jumpers or shirts as the weather starts warming up. Although I love a classic stone-beige trench coat, this gorgeous dusky pink trench (a Primark bargain at just £14!) adds a lovely spring touch to any outfit. Trench coats are great for making an outfit look more smart with minimal effort, and give you a gorgeous, feminine silhouette, which is so flattering.

3. A pastel bag

Can you tell that I’m loving all-things-pastel this spring? A pastel bag is great for ‘springing up’ any outfit. Even if you’re wearing a monochrome outfit – add a pretty pastel case to instantly update your look. I picked up this dusky pink tote bag from Topshop last year. However, there are lots of similar bags available this year too – such as this on-trend buckle hobo bag or this pink cross body tote bag both of which I love. If you prefer a different pastel shade, you will love this pastel blue bucket bag or this flower-embellished mint cross body bag.

4. A flattering pair of jeans

Admittedly, a pair of good-fitting jeans is a must-have all year round. However, I find that now is the perfect time to invest in a new pair of jeans for the upcoming spring/summer months. At this time of year, I like to go for a slightly thinner pair of jeans that I can wear through the upcoming warmer months. In this outfit, I am wearing my current favourite Topshop Authentic Blue Let Hem Jamie Jeans (similar here) which fit like a glove and are soooo very comfortable! As they are high-waisted ankle-grazers, they look great with a cute white shirt tucked in and a pair of spring-appropriate footwear, which brings me to…

5. A pair of ballerina pumps / loafers

Whilst I pretty much live in ankle boots throughout the autumn and winter, a comfortable pair of ballerina pumps or loafers are a must-have for me in spring. In this outfit, I’m wearing a pair of Miss KG gold ballerina pumps which I got from ASOS last year (similar here and here). ASOS also do an amazing pair of black leather loafers (#alltheguccivibes) which are smart, comfortable and look great worn with a pair of ankle grazer jeans or trousers throughout the spring.
