Dare we say spring may finally have sprung?! We’re finally seeing warmer temperatures and sunny blue skies.. We’ve been anxiously awaiting spring fashion for months now but soon we’ll be able to snip off the tags and free our new purchases from their hangers. We’re sharing our five favourite looks this season and how to put them together for your go-to spring uniform. Taking you from play dates at the park to coffee dates with girlfriends to date nights in between, we’re confident these effortless outfits will be on repeat this spring.
No.1 The Boyfriend Shirt (or as I like to call it, The Husband Shirt)
Thanks to the soon-to-be American princess, Meghan Markle, the white button down classic has never been so damn chic. Slightly oversized and most often paired with skinny jeans, the white shirt adds a crisp and polished element to an otherwise casual ensemble. Your favourite sunnies, every day jewelry, and flats can be layered into this look making it effortless and an outfit you’ll wear on repeat. Swapping out your flats for strappy heels or on-trend mules instantly takes you from daytime to evening without skipping a beat. And it should be noted: this staple looks just as polished with other wardrobe favourites like boyfriend jeans and/or olive cargo skinnies. You can’t go wrong.
With temperatures still varying daily (and sometimes even hourly), layering is key throughout the spring. We are loving the look of feminine camisoles paired with a light-weight cardigan layered overtop. Camisoles with lacy details and silky fabrics elevate the overall look while the longer cardigan keeps the outfit casual, comfortable, and most importantly, wearable. We think this combination is perfect for a romantic dinner paired with skinny jeans and heels or subtly sexy with slim joggers for a cozy date night in. We’re all about versatility; the ability to dress these pieces up or down makes them staples in our closets!
Everyone should have a favourite white t-shirt in their closet and if you haven’t found a go-to tee with a flattering silhouette, now is the time to do so. Investing in this basic is a purchase you’ll never regret and one that you’ll reach for time and time again. We think the white tee and jeans is one of the outfits for spring. From flat footwear like flip-flops, loafers, and sneakers to elevated options like espadrilles, strappy sandals, or wedges – the white tee and jeans works with it all. Accommodating for the occasional chilly spring morning can require adding outerwear and it couldn’t be simpler – the long cardigan we recommended above, a boyfriend blazer, or a spring trench all layer seamlessly into this look. Because this outfit is both timeless and on trend, its versatility makes it our favourite outfit to wear running errands, grabbing lunch, doing a Starbucks run, or heading to school drop-offs. Totally motherhood approved!
The chambray shirt is as much of a staple in our closets as the white boyfriend button down and for good reason – we mean it when we say you will wear it with everything! But we’re currently crushing hard on denim and denim, also known as “the Canadian tuxedo.” The chambray top exudes effortless chic and cool-girl weekend style, and when paired with additional tones and styles of denim, along with seemingly disheveled styling, we think it’s far from tacky and totally chic AF. Pair your head-to-toe blue jeans with colourful loafers, nude mules, or black strappy sandals, taking you from brunch to weekend errands to dinner and drinks, and back again. Give us all the denim, eh!
The t-shirt dress is just one simple article of clothing yet there are countless ways to wear it which is why we throw it on day in and day out. The classic striped style is probably our favourite but that hasn’t stopped us from adding a variety of options, including everyday neutrals like black and grey and bright pops of colour, to our closets. On days where comfort is a priority, these easy-wearing dresses pair effortlessly with a denim jacket or olive green military jacket, your worn-in sneakers, and (unwashed) mom bun. Opt for wedges or heeled booties and a slouchy blazer to transition this look into a Saturday afternoon lunch date. Seriously, we predict you’ll have an impressive collection hanging in your own closet in no time.
We’re confident that after adding these suggested pieces to your wardrobe you’re going to keep these looks on rotation all season long. Let us know what you’re living in and favoring for spring so far – we’re always up for some online shopping and adding tried and true favourites to our closets!
