Top 3 Spring Basics Every Woman Needs In Their Wardrobe

Apr 25th 2018

The transition from winter to spring isn't always easy, especially if you live in a colder climate. If you live in a warmer climate, then you can swap out your heavier clothing for lighter and colorful clothing. There are plenty of spring basics that every woman should have in her wardrobe.

These fundamental pieces will help you build your wardrobe. Without these basics, you'll find yourself in front of your closet wondering what to wear. These spring basics will always give you something to wear, no matter what the trends are.

You can also use these basics to dress up or dress down an outfit. Since they're basics, they never go out of style and they go with anything in your wardrobe. These basics are functional and timeless and outlast the current trend.

Spring Dresses

Spring dresses are a must, even if you don't wear a dress. Don't worry, these aren't your typical floral dresses. You can wear any dress in any pattern you like. For example, the striped maxi dress is perfect to wear from the office to the restaurant in the evening.

Eyelet is another ideal option for spring. This material is lighter yet thicker than lace and more appealing. You can wear an eyelet dress with a blazer or a cardigan. You can even wear it with sneakers or high heels or flats, depending on the style of the dress.


Cardigans are a better alternative to crew or V-neck sweaters as you can take them on or off easily. Cardigans can be worn with a large variety of colors. This sweater is light enough to wear underneath a twill or denim jacket.

After wearing chunky knit sweaters during the wintertime, this feels like a breath of fresh air. Wearing a lighter knit sweater cardigan is a lighter alternative to a structured blazer. You should look for a cardigan that complements your figure rather than hides it.

Long Pants and Shorts

Springtime is also the perfect time to wear a wide variety of pants. The most popular option are cropped pants or jeans that flatter most body types. These jeans can be worn with flats or heels and are appropriate for most workplaces.

Colored pants are a great way to bring life to your wardrobe. While colored pants are a must, you should consider having a pair of white pants in your wardrobe. A pair of dark denim cropped pants look great with a light sweater and a pair of heels.

Try a pair of gauchos or wide-leg pants with chunky shoes or platforms. These style pants look best with a fitted top.

Dress shorts and Bermuda shorts are appropriate for more office settings. They're a casual equivalent to the knee-length skirt. Wear a pair of off-white linen shorts with a colorful printed blouse for a look that's chic and timeless.

Spring fashion basics are a must for your wardrobe. With just a few key pieces, you can easily transition into the new season. Still lost on building your wardrobe? Come into Scout & Molly's boutique today. Our experienced and knowledgeable stylists will help you out with your spring wardrobe.
