The good news: COVID-19 vaccinations are making it possible for the world to start opening up again and spring weather is creeping in—i.e., we can actually start *doing* things besides planning virtual happy hours and binge-watching Netflix. The bad news: none of us really have anything to wear since we’ve more than likely spent the last year lounging in leggings and sweatshirts.
While it’s always fun to buy a few super trendy pieces that will probably be out of style by next year—leave my tiny purse out of this—it’s an even better idea to stock up on some basics that are both versatile and adorable. Opt for pieces that work with transitional weather (you know, like when you’re freezing early in the morning but then ready to hit the beach by the afternoon?), and go for styles that will work throughout the summer as well (it’s called thinking! ahead!). Oh, and duh, you can find all of that on Amazon, which has some very cool basics that will complete and elevate your wardrobe. We’ve rounded up some of the best options for ya. Yw!
Get in on the shacket trend while the weather is still cool enough to do so. It’s comfortable, it’s perfect for transitional weather, and it’s casual and versatile—what’s not to love? This Levi’s one comes in a few different colors, but honestly, you can’t go wrong with the dusty rose shade shown here.
Floral Print Mini Dress
There’s just something about warm spring weather that makes you want to throw on your most feminine dress and head to brunch, you know? This ruffled option is perfect: the deep V neckline balances out the ruffles and sheer, blousy sleeves. If mint green leopard print isn’t your thing (stop lying), this one comes in a ton of different prints and colorways, so there’s something for everyone.
Ribbed Knit Crop Top
A versatile crop top is a definite must have this spring (and summer), and this one is *it.* It’s casual, basic, and can be worn with layers or on its own. The ribbed knit material is so comfy and cute that you’ll want one of these in every color—good thing it also happens to come in under $20.
Kokos Puff Sleeve Top
There are simple crop tops and then there are more luxe crop tops, and this Andrea Iyamah top definitely falls into the latter category. The blousy statement sleeves, the cropped bustier style top, the lace-up back, the unique and tropical pattern—it’s a gem! We know you’ll wear this one as much as possible (and totally get your money’s worth).
Blake Long Blazer
Go for a more structured look with a power blazer like this one, which is part of Amazon’s The Drop collection, where they partner with big name influencers to create very on-trend looks. This longline blazer is made of a comfortable stretchy material and while it can easily be dressed up or down, it’s definitely going to elevate any outfit.
Small Crossbody Bag
This JW Pei crossbody will quickly become your go-to bag this spring for so many reasons: it’s very chic, it’s basically a luxe designer handbag at an affordable price point, and it goes with almost any outfit you’re wearing. Made of smooth vegan leather with a gold chain that easily swings over the shoulder, this is a staple you’ll use for years.
Waffle Knit Loungewear Set
Our social calendars might be starting to slowly open up (finally), but who says the loungewear trend is going anywhere? Run errands or hang at your best friend’s house in this ridiculously comfortable and lightweight short set that was basically made for spring’s moody weather.
Plus Size Relaxed Fit Straight Leg Jean
Skinny jeans? Never heard of her. These Lee straight leg jeans offer a perfect relaxed fit through the leg and a snug fit at the waist. They have just the right amount of stretch—you won’t even miss your quarantine leggings. And while we love this dark wash Niagara color, they come in a few other options as well.
Spaghetti Strap Striped Jumpsuit
Will jumpsuits ever go out of style? Doubtful. This one has some subtly *sexy* details, like a cut-out in the back and thin spaghetti straps, as well as feminine touches like the bow in front. The stripes make it stand out, and it comes in a few different colors as well and two long sleeve options.
H Band Flat Sandal
Your boots may have served you well all winter, but it’s finally time to free your feet in a cute pair of sandals. These are simple but chic and go with absolutely anything, whether you’re wearing a dress or a pair of boyfriend jeans. The soft cushioning is *chef’s kiss*
Cashmere Rib Cardigan
A cashmere cardigan is a staple for any time of year and it definitely doesn’t have to be boring. This super soft option works with that cute one-button-only trend you’ve probably seen all over TikTok, but it will be just as wearable when you’re over it. Did we mention it’s incredibly soft? Because it is.
Plaid Deep V Neck Tie Front Crop Top
This blouse is made for those nights when you want to wear a crop top, but it’s still kind of chilly outside and you don’t feel like freezing. It’s blousy and lightweight, and the long sleeves offer just the right amount of coverage.
Lace Up Backless Halter Crop Top
You can—and should—consider a lace up top a basic for spring 2021. This ribbed crop top is backless with crisscross straps and is super soft with the ideal amount of stretch.
High Waist Boyfriend Jeans
Join us in obsessing over these inexpensive, vintage-style jeans, which offer a surprisingly great fit. They have a loose feel while still being made of a sturdy, heavy denim, and they give off all the ’90s vibes.
Versatile and comfortable, this romper can easily be worn super casually or a little more dressed up with the right accessories. It’s also great for going from spring to summer—when it’s colder, add a layer (like a blazer) and when it’s warmer, wear it all on it’s own. Either way, it looks good.
Short Sleeve Print Dress
A mini wrap dress will literally never go out of style, meaning you’ll probably wear this ruffled version about a million times through both spring and summer. It comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns, although we are really into this red polka dot look.
Andrea Oversized Denim Jacket
This oversized denim jacket is the *best* for transitional weather during the spring. Throw it over your cute sun dress, wear it with bike shorts like this Amazon model, or go for a double denim moment a la Queen Britney Spears circa that time she work a denim gown.
Get yourself a pair of these white sneakers and you’ll immediately want to wear them everywhere and, fortunately, they basically go with everything. Use them to dress down a feminine dress or pair them with your best straight leg jeans for the comfiest outfit ever.
Fluid Track Pants
Okay, yes, we’re all pretty ready to ditch our leggings for more fashion-forward options, but that doesn’t mean we need to give up that comfort all together. These sleek track pants feel like sweats, but when styled the right way, look very chic.
Boho Floral Split Maxi Dress
Whether you’re dressing up for a special event or you just want to look extra cute when you head to brunch with your friends, this split maxi dress is the best choice. We love the colors, the style… everything.
Printed Off Shoulder Blouse
If you’re going to invest in one piece this spring, make it this beautiful Stella Jean blouse. The print is unique and fun and the off-the-shoulder element is trendy. We love the way it would stand out in any crowd, and how it would look great with jeans or a skirt.
Agustine Slide Sandal
Casual and comfortable, these platform slides are effortlessly cool. They’ll give you a little height without making you feel like you’re wearing heels, and you’ll definitely wear them until the day sandals are no longer appropriate.
