TCE Lead Stylist’s 3 Spring Must-Haves

Transitioning your winter wardrobe into springtime can be difficult. All our jackets are too thick, and our shirts are too muted. Here are a few of my spring must-haves that make moving into the warmer weather a bit easier. 

1. Spring Must-Have: Maxi Skirts

Say bye to mini skirts and say hello to maxi. They are trending now more than ever for the right reasons. They are comfortable, flowy, and easy to wear with endless styles and colors that can be worn by all body types. Maxis are the perfect versatile item to add to your wardrobe.


Pleated maxi skirts can be dressed up in many ways, such as adding layers for transitioning from the colder weather. With a sweater, blazer, or button-up on the top and some booties on the bottom, you are all set.

You can spice up a basic tee this spring with a bold pop of color or a fun pattern on your maxi skirt. This is a great way to make your wardrobe a little more unique and youthful.

MODERN CITIZEN // Keira Ribbed Knit Skirt

Knit maxis are the best way to put comfort first. They can even be dressed with chunky jewelry and a pair of heels or flats. But be careful with how soft and stretchy they are. It’s hard to want to wear anything else.


Silk slip maxis are effortlessly elegant. Their versatility can’t be overlooked, dressing them down with a simple t-shirt or dressing them up with a nice blouse. Silk maxis are a great essential piece to own.

Nothing screams summer more than ruffles. Ruffled maxi skirts are feminine and playful but still very casual, perfect for a beach day or a picnic in the park. 

2. Spring Must-Have: Linen Blazers

Make layering exciting this spring with blazers, specifically linen blazers. They are perfect in-between jackets that can be styled in countless ways. Linen is naturally breathable and timelessly chic.


Be bold this spring with a pattern. Having a unique design on your linen blazer can be a statement piece to your outfit.

Play it safe with simple colored linen. You can never go wrong with neutrals. They are casual and give your outfit a relaxed look.

Dress up a linen blazer with statement embellishments or colors. Those little details make a huge difference. Having gold buttons take you from off the beach to the workplace.

Old Navy // Double-Breasted Linen-Blend Suit Blazer for Women

Linen blazers can be worn with many different bottoms. Wear them casually with jeans or achieve a chic formal look with a good pair of slacks.

CUYANA // Linen Relaxed Blazer

Linen blazers come in all shapes and sizes. Play around with different silhouettes and styles, like this wrap-around blazer with a belt. 

3. Spring Must-Have: WIDE-LEG TROUSERS

Don’t want to wear jeans this spring and summer? Trousers are your best friend. Like jeans, they come in many styles, fabrics, and colors, all with more comfort. Trousers can also be dressed up or down, making them a perfect choice for any event.


Wide-leg trousers have been trendy for a while now and aren’t going anywhere this spring. Giving you a relaxed, comfortable bottom that leaves you with no restrictions. Having a wider leg makes your waist look smaller and your legs longer, giving you a flattering silhouette.

EVERLANE // The Linen Way-High® Drape Pant

Linen trousers are no different from linen blazers. They are breathable, comfortable, lightweight, and chic all in one. Perfect for the warmer weather.


Straight-leg trousers are perfect for a more polished and sleek look, pair them with heels, and you’re ready to concur the day.

NORDSTROM // FAVORITE DAUGHTER The Favorite Pant Pleat Pants

Dress up your trousers with a pleated waist. This detailing gives you a more work-ready sophisticated look. Just make sure to tuck in your shirt when you are wearing pleated trousers so you can show them off.

EXPRESS // Editor Mid Rise Relaxed Trouser Pant

Jump into the spring colors with bold trousers. This is an easy way to add color to your outfit without having to think too hard about it. Keep it safe with a neutral top or have fun with colors and have a color block moment.
