Our spring essentials checklist
- Chambray shirt

- Striped sweater
- White shift dress
- Khaki jacket
- Cognac bag
- Sandals (ballet flats or heels also work)
- Bright scarf
- Straw hat
Chambray shirt, white jeans, sandals, straw hat, bag, scarf
The scarf in this first look adds a dose of color and can be used to keep you feeling toasty against that familiar spring chill. When you’re not wearing it, simply knot the scarf around the handles of your cognac-colored bag for a bit of interest.
Anorak, chambray shirt, white jeans, ballet flats, straw hat, bag, scarf
Slip the anorak around your shoulders, and switch to closed-toe shoes to keep rain and wind at bay. Finish things off with a coordinated bag and shoes and a sleek woven hat, and now you’re prepped to handle the sporadic spring weather in style!
Striped cashmere sweater, chambray shirt, white jeans, ballet flats, bag
In our opinion, you can never go wrong with stripes! This lightweight pink cashmere sweater will keep you cozy all season long, plus it adds some cheery spring color to your look, too.

Bring on the unexpected April showers because you’re more than ready to handle a little bit of precipitation in your anorak. The heavy-duty material of the coat keeps out pesky spring breezes, too, so you’re ready to head out no matter the forecast.

What do you do when your best gal pal texts you for an emergency brunch date to discuss the latest gossip? Instead of panicking over what to wear, keep things simple and understated with a great pair of white jeans, a striped sweater and matching cognac bag and sandals. Done and done!

The great thing about a structured khaki coat is that it helps keep you comfortable throughout shifting weather without taking away from your stylish ensemble underneath. This light pastel-colored look feels fresh and fancy thanks to thoughtful layers and textures.
White shift dress, sandals, bag, scarf
We love to keep a selection of spring-specific shift dresses at-the-ready all season long, and this white number is a new go-to. The key to a sleeveless dress in the spring is to keep a pretty patterned scarf within easy reach just in case the temperatures drop.

We say start your day of farmers’ market-hopping and garden shopping off with a comfortable shift dress, flats, a scarf and a raincoat. Then, as the sun heats up and your busy day really starts to take off, you can slip out of the coat and scarf for a sunnier skin-bearing look.

Layering allows you to get creative in your quest to feel cozy this time of year! A chambray shirt buttoned over your favorite shift dress is an easy way to pull it all off. A lightweight looped scarf adds instant pizzazz to your purse or tote bag this time of year, too.

It can be disheartening to wake up to your local meteorologist predicting subpar temperatures and rain, but that doesn’t mean you have to pull your winter staples out of storage already. Just remember that light-colored layers—like this dress, chambray top and anorak combination—will keep you warm and looking spring-ready!
