A change of season means a change in my wardrobe! Fortunately, a wardrobe refresh doesn’t require an entire overhaul especially if you invest in 10 pieces that can be mixed together for endless outfit options. Whether your goal is to be more sustainable this year or if you just want to simplify the process of getting dressed, capsule wardrobes are the trick to getting it done. Although I’m a sucker for trends, you really don’t need to buy into the hottest pieces of the moment for a chic outfit. Today, I’m sharing 10 items you can wear on rotation and get the most from this spring.

1. White or Beige Blazer
Although, blazers are optimal for any time of the year, a white or beige-toned one tends to look crisp and clean for the start of the spring season. You can style them with so many different things from leather pants to denim or dresses. Refer back to this post here for my favorite ways to style a blazer.

A coatigan provides the same effect as a longline coat, but is lighter and perfect for in-between seasons. You can wear it at the onset of spring when the weather is chilly but not too cold. I like to layer mine over basics or workwear – it’s super stylish either way!
3. Moto Jacket
A moto jacket is an easy way to add some edge to a spring look. Go for suede and soft neutral leather this season for a lighter look. It’s one of the few outerwear pieces that transition seamlessly from day to night – and you can always add more layers if temperatures take a dip.
4. Cold Shoulder Knits
If you’re not quite ready to give up your sweaters, swap out your chunky turtlenecks for cold shoulder silhouettes. I’m obsessed with cutout details around the neck and shoulder.

Bodysuits are ideal for layering and can be worn underneath anything. I love how they create a flattering silhouette. Since my spring style is all about tees and tanks, bodysuits are perfect because they have the ease of basics but in an elevated way.

6. White Blouse
Pretty white blouses are an absolute must-have in my opinion! Whether it’s a classic button down top or something a little more flirty – like a lace blouse, your styling options will be endless.
7. Knit Dress
Knit dresses are such a huge trend this season and they couldn’t be more perfect for a spring capsule wardrobe. They look great whether worn alone or layered up with a duster coat. My personal favorite is a button-down style or sheath dress with a thigh slit.

8. White Pants
Spring always puts me in the mood for white pants. High-rise wide leg trousers are super lightweight and chic for the office while denim is perfect for brunch dates!
9. Woven Handbag
Woven handbags are one trend that will never go away in the spring. The great thing about them is that they’re not only affordable but so practical for a tropical vacation or everyday. I purchased this linen tote last spring and can’t wait to put it to use again in the upcoming weeks.

Sneakers are the best footwear style for those on-the-go days when you want to look cute but comfy on the fly. A clean, minimal style goes with just about any outfit and never looks too sporty.
