Spring is one of our favorite seasons for exploring new fashion trends. There is simply no better feeling than shedding all those heavy winter layers as the weather warms up, and swapping them out for comfortable sundresses, bright florals, and cute sandals.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite preppy spring outfit ideas and fashion trends for women this season. All of these outfits strike the right balance of stylish and casual, meaning they’re perfect for everyday wear. Get inspired and start planning your spring looks with these cute spring outfits.
1. Rompers + Sandals
Everyone has those days where they wish they could just throw on a pair of athletic shorts and a tank top, and skip the hassle of putting together a cute outfit. Rompers for women are an adorable and stylish alternative that are just as comfortable as your favorite athletic wear, but help you appear more polished.
Featuring a soft, breezy material and a drawstring waist, rompers are perfect for running errands, lounging at home, or meeting up with a friend for coffee. Style your favorite romper shorts with a pair of neutral or metallic sandals for a casual spring outfit that looks as good as it feels, no matter the occasion.
2. Girlfriend Jeans
Girlfriend jeans are a slightly more slim-fitting, tapered alternative to boyfriend jeans, which tend to be baggier and fit more loosely on the body. The relaxed fit of girlfriend jeans is super comfortable and on-trend, but still flattering for all body types.
One of our all-time favorite spring outfits for women is a pair of laid-back, ultra-cool distressed girlfriend jeans styled with a colorful printed blouse. This look creates the perfect balance of feminine, stylish, and casual for any time of the day or evening.
3. Maxi Dress + Floppy Hat
Cute and comfortable maxi dresses are a long-standing spring staple. But adding the right accessories can take your go-to maxi dress from basic to bold. Elevate a simple black maxi dress with a gorgeous floppy hat, and get ready to turn heads all season long.
The reason this outfit works so well is because you don’t need to think twice; you’re only working with two pieces, so the end result is understated and casual-chic. We love this spring outfit idea for brunch, shopping, or wine tasting with the girls.
4. Statement Shoes
Statement shoes are an easy and effective way to add a major “wow factor” to any look, without sacrificing comfort. These stunning floral slip-on shoes can be paired with nearly all of your favorite casual spring outfits, from jeans and shorts to dresses and rompers. We’re equally obsessed with these sequin palm tree espadrilles!
The best spring statement shoes are colorful, fun, and cute—but most importantly, won’t leave your feet aching after a long day of walking. Best of all, statement shoes are a great way to show off your personality and make your outfit pop, but tend to feel more casual than jewelry or other accessories.
5. Classic Denim Jacket
Spring weather can be sunny and warm one day, and then rainy and chilly the next. This is exactly why transitional pieces are so essential during the spring season. The perfect women's denim jacket is flattering, comfortable, stylish, and designed to help you transition between all four seasons.
A classic denim jacket pairs beautifully with all of the staple pieces that are already in your closet. Throw it on over a casual t-shirt dress or pair it with colored denim to add visual interest to your look. Jewelry, heels, and a pop of red lipstick will take your denim jacket from daytime to nighttime in an instant.We can’t get enough of these spring fashion essentials, and are already dreaming of all the ways to wear them this season.
