- Spring’s warmer weather means its time to give your closet an update.
- I asked my coworkers to share their favorite spring fashion staples, and the new styles they’re most excited to wear as the weather warms up.

The sun is shining, the grass is actually green, and it seems like we can finally hang up our bulky winter jackets for good. There are many exciting things about the changing of the seasons, one being the process of switching up your wardrobe.
But spring weather can be fickle. One day it’s hot and humid, the next it’s rainy and cold, and every once in a while it’s both over the course of 12 hours, which makes it hard to know what to wear. If you’re looking for some spring outfit inspiration, we’ve got you covered. I asked my coworkers — a team of product reviewers and discerning shoppers — to share the pieces that they actually wear all season long.
Check out 17 spring fashion staples the women of Insider Picks swear by in our own wardrobes:
A sleek leather jacket that looks almost more expensive than it is
This direct-to-consumer company used to manufacture its products in LA but they’ve now moved over to Europe, and the quality has seriously improved. This cropped leather jacket is the perfect spring coat for weird in-between weather and looks chic over literally everything. It’s thick like you’d expect from a leather jacket, but somehow light enough to feel appropriate for spring and sunshine, not just fall and apple picking. The $350 price tag is also relatively affordable for such a high-quality investment piece that I’ll wear for years. — Jada Wong, Insider Picks editor
In the past, I’ve called DSTLD’s $350 leather jacket one of my closet’s best-kept secrets — and each year I agree with the sentiment more. It’s a pipe-dream come to life: a high-quality, stylish leather jacket that won’t cost more than $400 but will potentially last you a lifetime. It’s one of the best investment purchases in my wardrobe, and the leather gets more supple, soft, and custom-fit with each year. — Mara Leighton, Insider Picks reporter
A lightweight, airy white tee that goes with everything
There really isn’t anything extra special about this shirt, other than the fact that it can go with just about anything. The pocket cotton tee from Madewell has become one of my spring staples and works with flowy skirts, jeans, or any outfit that demands a light, airy look. The white shirt is the one I wear most often, but it comes in 21 colors. — Megan Foster, Insider Picks intern
A great white T-shirt is the ultimate wardrobe staple. It goes with everything — with jeans and a leather jacket, tucked into a flowy skirt, or layered under a blazer for a more formal look. I have a few plain white tees, but this one is by far my favorite. I love how it’s loose-fitting, soft, and durable — I probably thrown it in the dryer more often than I should, but it’s never ripped or pilled, which I find pretty impressive for such a lightweight shirt. — Remi Rosmarin, Insider Picks reporter
A pair of easy-to-clean white sneakers
Since spring weather has the tendency to be fickle, I aim for variability in my wardrobe. These Keds have been one of my favorite springtime purchases because I can wear them in nearly any type of weather and in any type of situation. They’ve held up over time thanks to their durability, but they aren’t heavy or bulky like most rubber-soled shoes. When they get dirty, I give them a quick go-around in my washer and they come out looking like new. These are a definite must if you’re looking for a clean and adaptable look. — Megan Foster, Insider Picks intern
I love Keds because they’re the most dainty, yet no-nonsense shoes out there. They’re the perfect addition for sundresses, shorts, jeans, and pretty much any spring outfit, and they’re lightweight enough for running around the city without cursing the gods for placing lead blocks on your feet. Plus, they’re probably my cheapest favorite shoes. — Mara Leighton, Insider Picks reporter
