The Best Basics for Easy Spring Outfits

That’s why I always end up going back to the basics. It’s the classic items like t-shirts, bodysuits, and classic jackets that make putting an outfit together super easy. Plus, you don’t have to worry about not having something to wear whether you’re working at home or running out for meetings. If you’re not sure where to begin when it comes to building out the perfect foundation for your spring wardrobe, the pieces below are an excellent starting point. The best part is that they’re all super affordable and can all be found in one place – Express!

I talk about blazers all the time on the blog and that’s because it’s the answer to all your style needs. Whether you’re looking for an extra layer to brave the spring chill or want to transform jeans into an office-appropriate attire, blazers get the job done.

Essential Tees & Tanks

Tees and tanks are the most versatile layer a girl can have during the warmer seasons. I love how the styling options are endless. A fitted tee looks so on-point with joggers or high-waisted jeans while a loose, cropped style can be worn over slip dresses and skirts.

Bodysuits are similar to tees and tanks in that they’re infinitely versatile. However, I love that they look more seamless and polished than your typical tee. This makes them so easy to tuck into pants. I can’t recommend Express’s latest collection of bodysuits. They sculpt the body for a smooth, flattering fit and feel amazing on the skin!

Loose Denim

Denim is one of those pieces that will never go out of style no matter which wash and cut you go with. For a modern take on this classic staple, opt for an easy, loose fit with a high-rise waist. Express currently offers some perfectly relaxed, casual denim styles that are equally chic with pumps, kitten heels or sneakers.

Easy Separates

I’ve also been loving comfy separates more than ever. Think novel tees, ultra soft joggers, and easy t-shirt dresses. You can dress them up with blazers when you’re off to a video call – or pair them with slippers when you’re lounging around at home.
