19 Spring Outfit Ideas That Will Have You Cheering For Warmer Weather

Ever stand in front of your jam-packed closet, staring at more than enough clothing options, and think: I have nothing to wear? Same. But perhaps the issue isn’t that you’re out of viable outfit choices. You just need a fresh dose of inspiration — say: spring outfits — to help you see your wardrobe in a new way. That’s where Outfit Dump comes in. We supply you with enough ideas to fuel your style until the next drop comes along. 

Transitioning from one season to another can be a sartorial challenge. After having spent months dressing for certain conditions — see: cold weather, snow, etc. — it’s easy to fall into a fashion rut and grow to feel like you have nothing to wear as a result of styling the same section of your closet for an extended period of time. But with a new season also comes new opportunities to rediscover old favorites, change up your style, and experiment with new trends.

That’s exactly what we’ll be doing this spring, as the weather changes and we no longer have to make dressing functionally for biting temperatures our main priority. Whether it’s barrel-leg jeans, oversized bows, mesh ballet flats, or any other of the season’s buzziest trends, now is the time to start having fun with spring fashion. Keep scrolling to discover 19 spring outfit ideas that will have you ready for warmer weather. 

Spring Outfit Idea: Barrel-Leg Jeans 

This spring, it’s time to embrace one of 2024’s biggest denim trends: barrel-leg jeans. The wider the leg, the better, in our humble opinion, but let your personal taste guide you and have fun with the styling — these jeans can be dressed up or down.

Spring Outfit Idea: Patchwork Denim 

Patchwork denim styles are also taking over the shopping aisles this season, as seen in this London Fashion Week street style outfit. We love the cropped, baggy jacket pictured here, but you can find the patchwork look in an array of pieces, styles, and silhouettes.

Spring Outfit Idea: Big Bows 

Last year’s ultra-femme aesthetic is getting supersized with bows that take up the entire surface area, and we’re obsessed.

Spring Outfit Idea: Big Collars 

And if you’re still loving the “girly look,” try going for pieces that boast statement collars, like the one on this tiered Ganni dress.

Spring Outfit Idea: Lace Maxi Skirt 

Because nothing says looking ahead to brighter, warmer days than a fun, breezy maxi skirt that will still provide extra protection from cooler spring weather.

Spring Outfit Idea: Tropical Teal 

This Mediterranean-inspired teal hue was a favourite on the runways — and with good reason. Look at this vibrant skirt set and tell us you aren’t dreaming of heading to the beach right now.

Spring Outfit Idea: Sculptural Mini Dresses 

It’s hard to go wrong with a classic mini dress, but you can make your look much more interesting and dynamic by opting for one with a unique shape, whether that be with a striking hemline, interesting neckline, 3-D features, or anything in between.

Spring Outfit Idea: Mesh Shoes 

The only footwear trend set to be more popular and must-try for spring than ballet flats? Mesh ballet flats that really understand the appeal of going sheer.

Spring Outfit Idea: Touches of Leopard Print 

Consider leopard print a neutral for 2024. While that may seem daunting if you shy away from bold prints, you can still dabble in the trend by adding it to your outfit in small touches, like in a pair of stylish sneakers or with an also-trendy double waistband.

Spring Outfit Idea: Oversized Bag 

Can’t figure out what to wear this spring? Build your outfit entirely around your go-to oversized bag that can fit anything and everything you could possibly need.

Spring Outfit Idea: Quilted Jacket 

An artful, quilted jacket, like this one from Sézane, is the perfect transitional layer to add to your spring wardrobe.

Spring Outfit Idea: Cropped Matching Set 

Or if you believe in dressing for the spring temperatures you want to be experiencing, a cropped matching set — in a who-cares-about-the-season shade of white — is the way to go.

Spring Outfit Idea: All Red 

Barbiecore pink has given way to the colour red, so why not style the bold hue from head to toe?

Spring Outfit Idea: No-Pants Look 

The no-pants look is here to stay in 2024 (you can thank the SS24 runways for that), so we say it’s time to veer outside of your comfort zone and give it a try for yourself. We love the ruffled hotpants (paired with lacy tights) shown here, but there’s room to tone down the trend if your aesthetic typically leans more neutral.

Spring Outfit Idea: Colored Tights 

Coloured tights are a natural partner to the no-pants look — though you can definitely wear a pair a number of other ways, too. The trick here is to stay playful and to style them as an essential part of your outfit, not as an afterthought.

Spring Outfit Idea: Floral Prints 

Forget what Miranda Priestly said: Florals for spring are always a good idea.

Spring Outfit Idea: Feathers 

It may only be spring, but we can peek into the future thanks to this past fall/winter fashion month. One of the top runway trends seen at fashion shows in New York and Paris? Plush, fuzzy, and textured clothing — just like this fabulous feathered skirt.

Spring Outfit Idea: Pattern Mixing

Have fun with your seasonal layers by mixing and matching the patterns on every element of your outfit. We also love the pointed-toe heels that complete the look pictured here.

Spring Outfit Idea: Chunky Cardigan 

Ready to store away your jackets and coats until the next cold-weather fashion season? We don’t blame you. Opt for a cute, chunky cardigan as your use-as-needed warming layer instead — it will bring way more spring cheer.
