While I'm still wearing my boots and sweaters on the regular, spring is on the horizon, and I'm ready to shed some layers. I've already been experimenting with some transitional looks but also have a whole slew of easy spring outfits I'm eyeing to mix into my wardrobe for the months ahead. Not to be biased, but the pieces are already sitting in the latest drop from Who What Wear Collection.
Yep, there you'll already find trendy staples that you can start wearing now and long into the spring season. Ahead, I'm sharing some spring looks I'm test-driving already, plus editor and fashion insider-approved look—from a cool take on the cutout trend to directional dress lengths to trendy co-ords. If you're also thinking about what you'll be wearing for the new season, these nine easy spring outfit ideas won't disappoint. Scroll on to shop them all.
1. Polo Dresses
I'm a major fan of polo shirts, so this dress version instantly grabbed my eye. It taps into the preppy trendy that's going to be huge this spring that I can't get enough of. Just add a pair of trendy heels and it's one of those easy, out-the-door-in-two-minutes looks.
Another look I'm trying out? Cool takes on co-ords. In this case, a matching skirt and socks that I paired with a faux-leather blazer. Coordinating pieces are always a yes in my book.
3. Turtlenecks + Printed Skirts
If you're looking for a great transitional look as we move into spring, it doesn't get easier than pairing the turtleneck you've been wearing for the last few months with a printed skirt and a pair of heeled mules.
4. Corset Tops + Slouchy Trousers
This look combines two of my favorite closet staples: a great corset top and baggy (yet tailored) trousers. It's just the right balance of proportions that are fitted on top and slouchy on the bottom.
5. Cutout Dresses
While there's a lot to love about this dress, my favorite part is its take on the cutout trend. The open back takes the jersey dress up to the next level, making it perfect for an event.
6. Lightweight Sweaters + Jeans
While bulkier sweaters can stay put in the colder months, lightweight versions are a mainstay for spring. This style has a mock-neck silhouette and seam down the middle that add an elevated touch. Simply pair it with jeans for a great, easy look.
7. Faux-Leather Dresses
One way to always look polished? Sleek faux-leather pieces like this dress. There are so many styling options, whether you end up pairing it with knee-high boots, strappy heels, or flats.
8. Skirt Sets
Yep, another co-ord outfit I'm loving. This time around, a crew-neck-sweater–and-midi-skirt set. The super-soft knits look pulled together yet are secretly extremely comfy.
9. Long Dresses
With the rise of maxi silhouettes everywhere on the S/S 22 runways, it's no secret that hemlines are getting longer. One way to tap into the trend? This long, seamed dress, which comes in both black and beige. I especially love the beautiful neckline.
