I’ve said this before, but the changing seasons are always hard to dress for, and I think spring is the hardest season because the weather is so unpredictable. Plus, here in Kentucky, we typically get lots of rain and wind.
One of the easiest ways to make sure your closet is prepared for the season is to have some spring wardrobe essentials. Once you have your basics, like short sleeve t-shirts, lightweight jackets, and white sneakers, you can start to add in any spring trends that resonate with you.
If you’re unsure where to start with your spring outfits or need to update your spring wardrobe staples, here are the top 10 spring wardrobe essentials I think every woman should have in her closet.
10 Must Have Spring Wardrobe Essentials
1. Short Sleeve T-Shirt
A classic white t-shirt is a go-to piece for all seasons. It looks good by itself, but it’s also a great layering piece.
2. White Sneakers
Sneakers continue to be a huge trend, and a pair of crisp, clean white sneakers will go with all your spring outfits.
3. Spring Sweater or Cardigan
I still need sweaters this time of year, but I put away my wool and heavy sweaters. I love a lightweight sweater or a cardigan in a pretty spring color.
4. Lightweight Jacket
A trench coat is my most-used spring outerwear in spring. I recently purchased this one from J.Crew Factory. A trench coat can easily be thrown over leggings or a complete outfit and tie the look together. I also love a denim jacket, utility jacket, and blazers this time of year.
5. Light Wash Jeans
Lighter washes and primarily straight-leg and cropped jeans styles are trending for spring. The more I wear them, the more I love them, and this pair has been my go-to pair lately.
6. Spring Dresses
Whether running errands, headed out to date night, church, or on vacation, a spring dress is great to have for styling with sandals or sneakers and a jean jacket. I recently picked up this dress from Target, and it’s perfect for spring.
7. Mules and Clogs
This time of year, it’s too cool to wear sandals, and I’m tired of wearing ankle booties, so closed-toe shoes are essential for spring dressing. Mules and clogs are definitely trending for the spring season, but I have to say I’m loving these ballet flats.
8. Transitional Blouse
One of my go-to looks year-round is a statement blouse and simple jeans, so it’s no surprise that one of my spring wardrobe essentials is a beautiful blouse. Go simple with a white button-down, or go feminine with ruffles and smocking.
9. Neutral Handbag
Colorful bags are fun, but I recommend having a neutral handbag for spring. I love a rattan bag this time of year.
10. White Jeans
You can wear white jeans all year these days, but I typically wear mine in the spring and summer. They are a great piece to have in our spring wardrobe, and I’m glad the more relaxed styles are trending; I’m not a fan of tight white jeans.

Beauty for the Heart™– But you, O Lord, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high. Psalm 3:3
Truth: David was not sitting on his throne in this verse; he was running for his life from his rebellious son Absalom. We may not be running, but our circumstances in our life can get difficult. God reminds us that he is our shield; he’s our protector.
My favorite part of this verse is the one who holds my head high. This literally means he brings up or exalts. Today you may not feel worthy, but you ARE. Maybe you have past sin that you still have guilt over, or perhaps you feel “less than.”
But God lifts your head and reminds you that you ARE worthy. Nothing you have done or will do can stop Him from loving YOU.
Today, lift your head high and know that you are a daughter of the King.
