With the new season now here, it feels like the perfect time for a closet overhaul to up the cool factor of my spring outfits. I will always be loyal to comfort-first dressing, so the goal is to keep an eye out for cool picks that are comfortable without sacrificing style. Extra points if the pieces provide a dopamine hit with a lingering confidence boost—something I am in dire need of.

My main approach in this endeavor was to single out my favorite go-to basics and find an updated, more modern take on each piece. Think straightforward T-shirts, denim, sweaters, and more. From there, I looked to add in trendier selections that would help give these updated basics a much-needed edge, such as of-the-moment shoes, touches of color (hello, red!), and other chic details.

Keep scrolling to shop 30 cool picks that have inspired my spring closet refresh. Beware: Your virtual cart is about to be overflowing.
