This is the third post in the Spring Wardrobe series! So far we’ve covered 1) staples for tops HERE and 2) fun tops you can mix and match with the staples this season to freshen up your spring wardrobe HERE.
(BTW, some links for the staples post have been updated, like the vests and lace top, among others.)
Today I’m sharing my staples for bottoms and dresses. These are the ones I’ve come back to spring after spring, and I probably couldn’t get through spring without them.
- Option 1 – I own these. Read reviews and sizing info HERE. (Scroll to outfit with blue printed top and tan cardigan.)
- Option 2 – very stretchy
- Option 3
- Option 4

White Jeans // Outfits HERE
I own a very old pair from Old Navy and a pair from LOFT (Option 2), and with nude underwear I’ve never felt self-conscious about them being see through. I can’t speak for the current Old Navy pairs, and there are several different kinds available and probably not all the same. But, the Old Navy pair I have are very thick.
White Skirt // Outfit HERE
- Option 1 – smooth a-line
- Option 2 – smooth a-line
- Option 3 – lace
- Option 4 – scalloped
- Option 5 – poplin
- Option 6 – crochet
I always wear a nude slip underneath: THIS one from Target, but the older version by a brand they don’t sell anymore. I like that the waistband is lace so that it doesn’t cut into my stomach stays smooth under all skirts and dresses.
I love how white jeans and white skirts brighten up outfits, which is why both of these are staples for me during the spring.

Grey Jersey Dress // Outfit HERE
These are two items I have several spring-appropriate outfits for. But, despite wearing them plenty during the spring, I feel like I could live without them whereas I don’t feel I could make it through spring without the staples.

Later I’ll feature some more interesting pieces with color and print. For now, what kinds of pieces would make your spring staples list as far as bottoms and dresses go?
