I've been patiently awaiting the day that heavy coats become irrelevant, and that day is quite literally around the corner. With it finally warm enough to walk outside without a million layers clinging to my skin, the opportunity has arrived to really showcase my sartorial skills.
Between street style and social media, I've noticed an abundance of fresh ways to style easy spring outfits this season. In fact, at this point, it's hard to choose which one to emulate. But I've narrowed it down to 13 of the coolest looks I bet you haven't tried yet, and I highly suggest that you pin, screenshot, or even print out your favorites of the lot.
Trust me—saving these spring outfits will help you get dressed on those mornings when you're fresh out of ideas. Whether you're down to take risks or are in need of a new outfit formula, see and shop some of my favorite outfits below.
Baseball Cap + White Long-Sleeve Tee + White Wide-Leg Pants
Simplicity doesn't have to mean boring. Without a stitch of color, this outfit manages to keep me interested and eager to throw it on for myself. It's all in how you maximize proportions.
Cream Blazer + Knit Tank + Black Trousers
If you're heading to the office this season, take note—this outfit can transition from daytime meetings to impromptu coffee with friends afterward.
Oversize Shirt + Printed Sheer Top + Tartan Skirt
I love the risky clashing of patterns here. Combining the plaid and sheer-print trends, this look embodies the effortlessly cool aesthetic to a T.
Loose Jeans + Trench Coat + Sneakers
Sometimes, it helps to visualize new ways of styling old favorites, like this casual take on a seasonal essential, a crisp trench coat.
Leather Bomber Jacket + White Tank + Pencil Skirt
In reality, this is a full S/S 22 ACNE Studios look, but there are still some key styling takeaways even if you're not planning on dishing out this much money for an outfit. Try coordinating a cropped bomber with a pencil skirt and a simple white tank. Partly dressy and partly casual, it's the kind of look you can wear anywhere.
Sleeveless Turtleneck + Leather Pants
If time is of the essence, might we suggest this easy combo of a colorful turtleneck with leather pants?
Denim Jacket + Denim Skirt + Cowboy Boots
If you're one to wholeheartedly embrace trends, grab some Western boots and your sharpest Canadian tuxedo. From there, you can accessorize with a ton of jewelry or keep it minimal with just the basics.
Sweater + Sporty Vest + Baggy Pants
I'm like a moth to a flame when it comes to sporty outfits these days, and this look is up there as one to immediately try. It can seem tricky to style cloud boots, aka quilted boots, in a way that doesn't feel overly casual, but this manages to sway on the side of sophistication.
Low-Rise Jeans + Cropped Top + Baggy Trench
Low-rise jeans are here whether you love them or not, and adding a cropped tank and a flowing jacket is the perfect way to embrace them.
Nude Slip Skirt + Bucket Hat
Wearing a coat over this would completely ruin the vibe of this glorious lounge slip, so cheers that you finally won't have to wear one in a few weeks.
Colorful Bomber Jacket + Trousers + Casual Shoes
Colorful bombers are a micro-trend on the rise and a great way to add a pop of color to complement any pair of jeans or polished trousers.
Mesh Flared Trousers + Cropped Top
Sheer pants may not be for everyone, but for the crowd keen on risks, style this with a cropped tank and heels for a prime going-out look.
Crop Top + Cargo Pants
If you've always been into Kim Possible, now's your chance to channel her into adulthood. The crop-top-and-cargo-pants combination is a classic for a reason.
