Before we dive in, let's just remember that there's truly no such thing as a perfect outfit. Everyone has their own unique personal style, so your perfect outfit would be whatever makes you the most comfortable and confident. That said, there are a few key elements we think make up some of the most up-to-date looks. Essentially, when an ensemble makes us do a double take or causes that double-tap on IG, it's because it features a culmination of specific forward components.
To dive into this matter further, we're showcasing our checklist below to keep in the back of your mind (or save to your phone to reference when styling) that adds up some of the principal details of the perfect spring outfit in our minds. And to showcase the aspects in action, we also rounded up some of the chicest spring looks that fit the bill. So without further ado, keep scrolling for a bit of visual and shopping inspiration to stimulate and encourage your spring outfit game.
Now, outfits that fit the bill:
V-neck sweaters will never go out of style, and they look quite elevated with a pair of spring-ready linen shorts.
A slouchier trench is incredibly modern over a simple yet forward ensemble featuring a knit, leather trousers, and chic accessories like a chunky chain necklace and mules.
Tucking a blazer into wide-leg trousers is particularly forward and of the moment. Bonus points if you push up the sleeves. The addition of an eye-catching clutch ties this sophisticated look together.
While this 'fit may seem simple in nature with the short-sleeve tee and black trousers, it's actually quite forward because of the details—seamlessly checking all the boxes on our list. The fuzzy texture and exaggerated sleeves on the top bring dimension to the look, and the skinny-but-non-skinny straight-leg pants are modern. Square-toe scrappy sandals and a white clutch complete this effortless outfit.
A vest could actually become a new wardrobe basic as an alternative to a blazer this spring. As a fresh tailoring piece, a gilet works well with straight-leg jeans. If you really want to go for it, follow this style-setter's lead with flashy extras like the chain belt and bag.
Integrate an architectural tank into your ensemble with a slouchy short-sleeve shirt on top to bring a laid-back element. Team these pieces with cool bootcut jeans that bunch just slightly around square-toe booties for an A+ fit.
