refresh your wardrobe for spring 2021 with new looks in 16 essential areas

1. The Trench

To kick off our overview of spring 2021 fashion essentials, outerwear seems like a sensible place to start. We always think of the trench as a British wardrobe staple – but for a spring refresh, how about one with French savior faire? Isabel Marant, Étoile’s SS21 “Peter” cotton- and linen-blend trench coat exudes a vibe that’s relaxed and Parisian-chic. The hue is just a bit lighter and brighter than the classic khaki, which makes it more wearable for both work and off-duty as the weather gets warmer.

2. The Rain Jacket

Designer Jane Lipman Post has made chic rainwear her specialty. Her “Iconic Princess Slicker” has a detachable hood and a finish that makes it appear to be patent leather.

 

BUY NOW: $345.

3. The Lightweight Cardi

Grace Wales Bonner is making her mark in womenswear after her success in the tailored menswear market. And you can see why – this dark pink “Parish Cricket” cardigan has ribbed cream and orange striped edges, reminiscent of cricket uniforms. Sweet, sporty and sassy all in one.

BUY NOW: $765.

4. The Pretty Dress

A lovely floral dress is pretty much a must for warm weather socializing. Whether it’s for a spring micro-wedding or a family or “pod” outdoor event, Zimmerman is one of our go-to brands, and we’re swooning over this “Lovestruck” mini dress. Among our spring 2021 fashion essentials, this one’s near the top of our shopping list.

5. The soft power suit

Board meetings and big presentations don’t take a spring break. But you can lighten the mood with tailored suiting in a spring pastel. Like this one from Alexander McQueen. The single-breasted jacket and slim coordinating trousers are crafted from a breathable wool-silk blend.

6. The Crop Top + Maxi Skirt

We love the look of a flirty crop top and breezy maxi skirt. This look is core to our spring 2021 fashion essentials edit. Why? Because it’s as effortless as an easy summer dress, only much, much better. You can wear the pieces together or apart. Perfect when you have to pack light for a weekend away! Take, for example, Agua by Agua Bendita’s hand-embroidered floral “Macadamia” print top and skirt.
