Ready to refresh your spring wardrobe with some fun, fresh new pieces? These are our picks for 8 essential items you’ll want to add to your wardrobe this spring.

1. A Tie-Dye Dress

Hippie-chic is a hot trend this spring, and a new tie-dyed dress is a great way to flaunt that look.

If you want to shop for a ready-to-wear tie-dye dress, you’ll find plenty of options for this look. You have another fun alternative; you could dye your own dress. The dyes and supplies needed for tie-dyeing are really affordable, and dyeing is an easy way to make over a dress from last spring so that it remains trendy for this season.

2. A Half-Moon Bag

A great, big semicircle-shaped purse will transport your spring essentials in style.

3. A Pleated Skirt

Whether your style is preppy, romantic, elegant or businesslike, you’ll find pleated skirts to suit your spring wardrobe this season.

4. A Lace Dress

Lace is trendy in any form this season. Lace dresses, blouses, lingerie and accessories are all desirable wardrobe staples for this spring.

5. A Comfortable Pair of Jeans

Jeans are on-trend for any season, but you need to have just the right pair. We suggest getting the softest and most comfortable jeans your favorite denim label is cranking out for spring this year.

6. A Go-With-Anything Organic Cotton T-Shirt

Everybody needs some basic tees for spring, and you can’t go wrong with tees made from soft, eco-friendly organic cotton.

7. A Crochet Scarf

Crochet has been popping up all over the place. We’re seeing it on the runway and on local trendsetters in our neighborhood. Virtually any crocheted piece, vintage or new, is on-trend for this spring. However, a classic crochet scarf in silk or merino wool is a particularly desirable item this season.

Since crochet is completely handmade and there is no machine that can replicate it, genuine crocheted pieces are often pricey and hard to find in stores. If you’re on a tight budget this spring, you can make your own scarf and get just the look you want.

8. A Suede Bag With Fringe

Fringe is everywhere this season. Chances are good that you’re going to be right on-trend if you show up to your favorite destinations wearing fringe in any form, whether it’s on a suede jacket or a stylish pair of boots. If you’re only going to buy into one fringed piece this season, your best bet is a roomy suede bag with fringe. It fits well with the hippie-chic aesthetic that’s so popular right now, and depending on the weather in your neighborhood you’ll probably get more mileage out of a new purse than you would from a fringed jacket or pair of boots.

Those are our suggestions for 8 must-have wardrobe essentials this spring. However, every fashionista’s must-haves are different, so we’d love to see your take on your personal wardrobe essentials for spring. Update us with your thoughts via a comment in the comments section.
