Wardrobe Essentials, According to Vogue

Audrey Miranda | Assistant Director of Marketing May 21st, 2024

Spring is here, which means now is the time to transition your closet into one more suitable for the sunny days and warmer temperatures ahead. While everyday wardrobe essentials like crisp button-ups, great pairs of jeans, and notable yet lightweight knitwear, are the usual suspects in a polished spring wardrobe, these staples look slightly different.

The Vogue team gathered a robust list of the most versatile foundational pieces for any closet. These unflashy wardrobe essentials are ones you’ll turn to season after season. While we still welcome irresistible seasonal and trendy pieces like mesh ballet flats and sleek denim midiskirts, we know those need to live alongside a capsule of staples, because every wardrobe needs balance. You’ll find yourself reaching for at least one, if not more, of these pieces daily. Covered here are the classics (white T-shirts, crewneck sweaters, oversized blazers, tailored trousers, chic sneakers) alongside those items that have more recently earned their spot as tried-and-trues—think ladylike jackets, minimalist strappy sandals, barn jackets, and striped shirtdresses that transition from workwear to evening wear seamlessly.
