Linen Dress


We tend to gravitate towards lighter fabrics like linen and cotton as spring approaches. Everlane’s chief designer Mathilde Mäger says, “At Everlane we design our Layering is a trend I’m loving right now. Draping a sweater on top of a Gap’s linen-blend midi shirtdress ($90), is perfect for layering.

Consider investing in items that you will have for many years. Sunglasses can elevate your look instantly without costing a fortune. Coco and Breezy’s Sunglasses are affordable and beautiful. They go with any spring essential. So, take your look to the beach and to the bar and add some gold jewelry. We’re in love with Miu Miu Rectangular-Frame Acetates Sunglasses (530).

Modern Ballet Flats

It’s not necessary to change your wardrobe each season. It’s easier to switch up your look with a capsule wardrobe that includes pieces you can wear in any weather. Mader says, “I like a nice Mary Jane in spring and I can wear them over socks to create a cute look for cold weather.” Mansur Gavriel Square Toe Ballerina is a favorite and comes in many colors. Flamingo pink would be a great choice for spring. Toteme’s knitted ballet flats ($600) are a fun way to style the trend.

Little White Tee

Bornstein believes that a white tee is an excellent styling tool. Style your white tee under a leather jacket and finish with your favorite jeans to create the perfect mix of casual and elevated. Re Ona’s signature T-shirt ($69), which offers the perfect combination of comfort and flexibility, is a spring wardrobe staple. Another great option is Good American’s Baby Stretch Tee (59 dollars).

Everyday Jeans

Tove Studio

Jeans form the foundation of a capsule wardrobe. Everybody needs a couple of pairs of pants they can rely on to fit perfectly. This spring, you can reduce your denim collection by choosing styles that you will wear again and again. Mader suggests that if you’re ready to let go of the item, donate it or swap it with a friend. If you are spring cleaning your closet, Mader says that barrel leg jeans have a real resurgence. They may seem intimidating at first but they are fun and easy-to-style. If you’re not ready for the oversized look, Tove Studio’s Sade Jean is a great option. Agolde’s High Rise Wide Leg is another style that I always reach for.

Lightweight Cardigan

Everlane x Marques’ Almeida

The lightweight cardigan is a great way to pull any outfit together. This season we are seeing pieces with delicate lace or mesh details. Mader says that a sweater is a perfect layering piece. “I like to throw it over my shoulder during the day, and then put it on top of my outfit when the evenings get cooler.” Investing in spring layers is essential as the weather changes from cold mornings into warm evenings.

Coach’s Lace Knit Cardigan is a great way to add some sunshine to any wardrobe. Everlane collaborated recently with Portuguese design duo Marques’ Almeida to create a capsule collection that used only liability fabrics. We love the Alpaca mesh cardigan ($148) from the collection.

Woven Shoulder Bag


Bornstein says that adding a woven texture or raffia is a good way to signal the spring. Raffia is a popular fabric for spring and summer. Brands are using it in shoes, bags, accessories, and more. Khaite’s Large Olivia Hobo bag ($1350), is one of Khaite’s most sought-after bags this season. Staud’s Moon Woven Bag ($295) is a stylish and affordable option. Bornstein prefers a raffia tote for the transitional season. DeMellier London’s Tokyo bag ($640), however, grounds this warm-weather material with classic black leather. Style your bag with an blazer oversized and ecru denim for a chic spring outfit.

Everyday Belt

Scanlan Theodore

Trends in belts come and go but a thin, understated style will always be timeless. Belts are not only functional accessories, they can also change the look of a person. The Scanlan Theodore Pointed Buckle Belt (250) is perfect for layering over a tailored gown, whereas the Khaite Bambi Belt (380) goes well with a pair of jeans. This elegant belt can be used to update a white dress that is in need of a makeover.

Midi Skirt


The A.L.C. mini skirt is a great option for the summer months. The A.L.C. Maia Cotton Midi Skirt (495) is a crisp cotton skirt with a paper-bag waist and a slit in the front. Bornstein suggests wearing your midi skirt and sandals with a white tee to create a minimal spring look. If you want to add some fanciful flair to your spring wardrobe, the COS embellished circle-cut midi skirt is an excellent option.

White Sneakers

New BalanceWhite sneakers are versatile and there’s nothing like a new pair of kicks. Bornstein says that white sneakers can add a sporty touch to spring outfits. The Sneakers by New Balance ($90) are both durable and stylish and can be worn from day to evening with just a few changes to your outfit. Stuart Weitzman 5050 Lace Up Sneakers (275) are a great choice if you want a combination of style and function
