Rebuild Your Wardrobe: All the Spring Closet Staples You Need!

If you’re in need of refreshing your closet staples for spring, then you might want to pin this post! Earlier this year I released my first ever year-round capsule wardrobe builder, the Closet Staples Casual Capsule Wardrobe Builder.  It’s been one of the best selling and reviewed Style Challenges® capsule wardrobes to date!

The shopping list for this year round wardrobe builder is my free gift if you sign up for the GYPO newsletter. You also get four free outfit ideas that span all four seasons. (if you don’t have it yet, you can sign up HERE)

This list is a great place to start if you’re rebuilding your wardrobe from scratch. You can also slowly build your wardrobe over the course of a year (or more) to spread out the expense and curate your closet with pieces you love. You know what I always say, when you’re shopping, if it’s not a heck yes, it’s a no!

You can see that almost every piece on this list is used across multiple seasons so you get the most bang for your buck.

Today we’re going to focus on just the spring pieces!

Spring Closet Staples Shopping List

Each piece on this list is one of my closet staples that I pull out every spring, year after year. These are classic basics that won’t be going out of style anytime soon.  The best part?  You can create a multitude of mix and match outfit ideas from them!
