One of my frequently asked questions from readers is how I put together an outfit. If you think of a well styled outfit like a puzzle, you might be surprised to learn that most of the “pieces” that make up the final look are classic, staple wardrobe items. These pieces are foundational clothing items that I reach for over and over again like a great pair of jeans, a tank top that I can layer under things, or a neutral shoe that goes with everything. Today, I’m sharing some of these spring basics from Amazon that are the building blocks to creating a chic and timeless outfit. I always make sure to have a variation of these on hand because they make putting together a stylish outfit a breeze.
Spring Basics from Amazon
A white tank like this v neck camisole is a great layering piece. I have worn them tucked into skirts, under a denim jacket or blazer, or layered them under a top that shows too much cleavage to add a little more coverage.
A simple black top can be paired with so many different bottom options like denim shorts, jeans, olive utility pants, chinos, etc. This v-neck, button down blouse is a step up from a classic black tee, making it easy to dress up if needed.
A white tee shirt is another classic wardrobe staple that I think every woman needs in her closet. I like that this tee has a boat neck giving it a unique and unexpected twist from the typical crewneck.
Jackets and Sweaters
This Wrangler Denim Jacket is one of my favorite purchases from last year. It is so versatile, and I have worn it with dresses, jeans, and shorts. I wore it often throughout the fall and winter, as well. I’m wearing a large, and I still had room to add a lightweight sweater under it.
A white blazer is one of those essential pieces that everyone needs in their spring and summer wardrobe. It LOOKS so effortlessly chic and stylish over a sundress, tank, blouse, or tee!
Cardigans aren’t just for the fall! They are wonderful for chilly spring mornings and cool summer nights. They’re also great to wear over a dress to a location like church or the funeral home where you’d like to add a little coverage.
Dresses and Jumpsuits
A black maxi dress is a blank slate. It would look great under a graphic or basic tee that is tied up in a knot, or with a denim jacket. You could add one of my favorite rattan belts, or a colorful necklace.
A lightweight dress like this sleeveless swing dress looks just as cute paired with sneakers, as it does with a cardigan and a heeled sandal.
If you live where it is hot during the spring and summer months, you need a denim short in your rotation. I love wearing mine with flowy blouses, tees, and tanks! This pair from Democracy are a 7″ length which I think is a sweet spot between too short and too long. If you do prefer a longer short, they also have a 13″ Bermuda option.
You can find me wearing jeans all year long. A great pair of jeans, a pretty top, and a casual sandal is one of my favorite combinations for summer. There are many different popular styles and washes of jeans right now, but go with whatever style makes you feel your best.
Chino shorts are comfortable, versatile, and stylish. I love their classic style and the fact that they can be dressed up or down. Chino shorts have been a fashion staple for many years, and this classic and timeless style never goes out of fashion.
When I am shopping for sandals, I typically look for a neutral shoe that I can pair with many different outfits. This tan braided pair will look so cute styled with dresses, skirts, shorts, or pants!
