Five timeless basic must-haves for spring 2023

As much as I love colorful dresses with prints, good essentials are just as important to me. Basics that on the one hand form the foundation of so many outfits and on the other hand accompany me for a long time. Because good basics are timeless and independent of short-lived trends – the basis of our wardrobe.
Here and now I would like to devote myself to essentials that we particularly like to wear in spring. The supporting actors of exciting trend pieces can be, but also very happy to be the basis of a casual everyday look. Which can be combined in a variety of ways and which we love so much for exactly that. Timeless classics that we wouldn’t want to do without in our everyday lives.
And for this special I’ve teamed up with UNIQLO, because the Japanese brand is known to be really good at basics! For decades, UNIQLO has stood for high-quality essentials that are timeless and modern at the same time. Casual wear that can be worn regardless of the season and complemented with current trend pieces at any time. By the way, the price-performance ratio is unbeatable and you can choose from many different colors for almost every piece.
But back to the essentials, to which I would like to dedicate this post. Curtain up for five cool basics that should not be missing in my (spring) wardrobe for 2023!
Five essentials we need in our spring wardrobe
1. A cropped denim jacket
Denim jackets have been one of my absolute favorites in the transitional period for years – and they are always an integral part of my summer wardrobe. They add a casual touch to an elegant look and go with almost any summer dress.
Especially popular in spring 2023: the cropped version with an oversize cut. Personally, I prefer light washes. By the way, the UNIQLO model is also available in off-white and a darker shade of blue.
2. A (white) shirt dress
This is where three spring favorites come together: linen, a shirt dress and the color white. The dress is an absolute all-rounder, with which we can combine almost all accessories. My favorite combination partner? Said cropped denim jacket!
The combination with linen dress and denim jacket also works great with high booties!
3. A pair of pleated trousers (with a wide fit)
Pleated trousers are only worn in combination with a blazer in the office? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! The elegant trousers are the perfect partner for our everyday spring life! We prefer to wear them in fresh, light tones.
I’m wearing a sleeveless cropped sweater and a white oversized blouse with the pleated trousers in a light shade of green.
4. A pleated skirt
Yes, even in spring 2023 the pleated skirt should definitely not be missing in our wardrobe! Whether casual with a denim jacket and cropped top, or elegant with a blouse and pumps: the pleated skirt can be combined in many different ways and is an absolute all-rounder in our wardrobe. By the way, my model in a fresh shade of orange has a slightly asymmetrical cut.
5. A casually elegant hoodie
Casually elegant? Yes, exactly! I’m not talking about an XXL baggy sweater that we only wear in the home office on days without a video call (it has to be sometimes!), but about shorter models made of high-quality fabrics. Like my hoodie with a slight sheen and DRY technology, an innovative fabric with fast-drying fibers. And hey, the hoodie is also the perfect, casual combination partner for our pleated skirt, isn’t it?
Of course, UNIQLO also has some great hoodie models for men. By the way, Chris wears this one in a nice dark green.
