Spring is one of the most exciting times of the year when it comes to reviving your closet and your outfits. Right now is the perfect time to put together a spring 2022 capsule wardrobe that will enable you to create countless outfits.

spring 2022 capsule wardrobe

What should you include in your spring 2022 capsule wardrobe? I’ve been inspired by the new trends for spring 2022, but also wanted to create looks that are completely timeless.

This article is sponsored by Nordstrom so all clothes, shoes and accessories can be bought conveniently in one shop. Nordstrom really has everything you need for the upcoming season.

You’ll see that many of the trends from the spring catwalks are included below, including oversized florals, luxurious fabrics, wide pants, stripes, jumpsuits, maxi dresses and contemporary jewelry.

Spring 2022 capsule wardrobe tops

When it comes to the tops you choose for spring, you’ll want lighter, cooler options than you wore during winter. But you’re likely to still want some options with sleeves. Look out for t-shirts and shirts in luxurious fabrics that you can wear with your jeans or to dress up.

Oversized floral prints are a big trend for spring so you could introduce this print into your outfits by choosing a print blouse.

There were lots of trench coats on the designer runways for spring. Choose a trench coat that is a little out of the norm, such as a different color than the beige you would expect.

Other spring options are smart blazers or cropped jackets. A crop style looks great paired with one of the other trends in the capsule – wide pants. If it’s warm enough, opt for a cardigan instead of a coat.

Spring pants and jeans

Wide pants have definitely been having a style moment for the past few seasons, and they’re not going anywhere for spring 2022.

The red pants below capture one of this season’s key colors while you could also choose wide-leg jeans.

If you’re already looking for shorts this year, then longer short lengths are particularly on trend right now. Choose mid-thigh or bermuda lengths.

Monochrome looks are very much of-the-moment so the black and white shirt dress perfectly captures this. You could wear as it is, or belted to create different looks. Or, wear it open as a lightweight duster coat.

Maxi lengths and interesting graphic prints are also modern looks for the new season. A jumpsuit is a great alternative to your dress.

spring shoes

For the new season, there are number of key shoe trends you can add to your look.

Choose t-bar styles, platform or clog soles, lug soles and bright colors.

White shoes and boots were also a mini trend that I spotted from many top designers.

spring accessories

To give your spring outfits the finishing touch, choose bucket bags and bright colors. You can transition your spring outfits to summer with the addition of a straw or woven bag.

Keep your jewelry large and contemporary. Some of the big jewelry trends to add to your looks for spring are cuff bracelets, hoop earrings and stacked rings.

You can easily mix and match the tops, bottoms and coats to create lots of different outfits. Any of the dresses would look great worn with the denim jacket and the blouses will go with any of the pants.
