I’ve sifted through stores and scoured your favorite sites to find some of the very best styles for spring, and as happens every year, some clear favorites emerged. These are the pieces you will reach for time and again this summer and become your new favorites.
I really wanted to keep this list to a clean and concise 10 items, but fashion doesn’t always work out like that, and so I ended up with a lucky 13. I’m sure you’ll find a few items on this list that you’ll want to update your wardrobe for spring!
As always, you can find everything in this catalog. Also, each of the pictures is linked for easy shopping. 🙂
Like many of the items on this list, this is a classic that also happens to be currently trendy. Whether it’s flowy or crisp, casual or dressy, a white dress is a warm-weather staple, and there’s one for everyone this season. The lacy or ultrafeminine white dress is a key look, but if that’s not your thing, you’ll find a version to suit your style here.
Statement White Shirt
A pretty lacy or ruffly or frilly or otherwise interesting white blouse is pretty much mandatory this time of year. Look for feminine details like cutwork eyelet broderie anglaise and lace.
Short Sleeve Button Down
The perennial staple, updated for summer, often with patch pockets at front and a boxy shape. This is a great alternative to your everyday button-downs, and the style works with all of your spring bottoms.
Fabulous florals in spring are nothing new, but this season we are seeing them on everything from shoes to suits. Look for bright florals, whimsical florals and even 60s inspired florals.
Another classic style reimagined for spring 2022, this timeless silhouette comes in silk and vegan leather and crisp cotton, and in solids as well as every other pattern, meaning there’s a style out there for everyone.
I kept this category intentionally broad, as it ranges from denim and moto jackets (in new shorter lengths) as well as the spring trench and blazers in pretty colors (wear them long or short, not in between)
A jumpsuit is one and done, like a dress, but with leg coverage. They are comfortable, chic and easy to wear, and most pull down easily for bathroom visits. 🙂
Linen is nothing new for warm months, but it’s been years since I’ve seen this much of it. From flowy linen trousers to classic linen tops, linen dresses and linen sets, there is something in this breezy fabric for everyone.
Crochet should be approached cautiously to avoid matronly connotations, so consider a crochet cardigan worn over modern casual separates or a simple crochet sheath.
Breezy wide leg pants, crisp white jeans or pants, and sailor inspired button details are all on trend and also classic for spring 2022.
Pull On Shorts
Polished but super comfortable, pull on shorts are a cool alternative to joggers for spring. Just avoid the styles with a lot of volume around the waist and stick with a flat front pair instead.
Puff Sleeve Top
The puff sleeve top is nothing new, as it’s been trending for seasons, but every year brings new iterations, and this year, we are seeing lace and eyelet styles in pretty colors.
A one shoulder tank is an easy update to you regular summer staple, and looks fresh and different.

Crochet is tricky for sure! Glad you like linen like I do!
Definitely a white dress!
And yes to linen, always! It’s my summer staple in pants and shirts.
Not so sure about the crochet trend though.
