Hear that noise? It’s the clock counting down the days until the official start of spring. With a new season on the horizon, there’s so much to be excited about—warmer temperatures, fresh trends, the prospect of spring travel; the list goes on and on. I’d be lying if I didn’t say there was one specific thing I’m looking forward to most; a chance to update my wardrobe. I’ve been feeling fatigued when choosing what to wear for this last stretch of winter, and I’m guessing that if you’re reading this, you are tired too. We all want to ditch a few layers, but it’s not always straightforward.
A shift into a new season, especially spring, requires some work—you’re weighing which pieces are worth investing in and dealing with transitional weather. It’s a delicate balancing act that can be, at times, overwhelming. So, where does one turn to for a blueprint to make sound sartorial decisions? The French, obviously. While I’m a proponent believer that great outfit ideas can come from anywhere, I know that no one does it like the French (blame their innate je ne sais quoi). It’s only natural then that I’d turn to the Parisian fashion set as a guidepost for changing my closet for the new season.
Ahead, you’ll find 20 simple spring outfits that are simple enough to copy and paste into any wardrobe, no matter where you live. Plus, the key pieces you’ll need to recreate the looks yourself. Consider this your one-stop shop for being à la mode this spring.
