Spring is here! And there's no better time to revamp your wardrobe and stock up on essentials.

From a classic white blouse to practical yet chic lace-up flats, these items will keep your wardrobe looking fresh and on trend, and have you feeling your best. They can also be dressed up or down for any occasion, from a day the office to a night on the town.

Try the classic white blouse, but with a twist. A laid back, stand-up collar and a curved hem reinforce the look of a lightweight silk blouse that offers a smart play on your classic version.

A fit and flare dress is the perfect piece to transition from workday to evening! Pair a flare dress with tights and a blazer for a chic office look. When you dash for drinks with friends straight from the office, you can remove the blazer and throw on a statement necklace for a fun evening outfit.

A cropped pant is the perfect spring staple, and you can't go wrong with a timeless hue like khaki. Pair your trousers with a crisp white shirt and navy blazer for a fresh work look, or with a white scoop tee for a comfortable vacation ensemble.

Try updating the classic trench by going for an unstructured fit and soft colour, like a cloudy blue. Pair with soft pastel or peachy tops for a fresh take on a trench look.

A sophisticated lace-up flat means you don't have to compromise on style or comfort on long days out-and-about. The versatile laces are given extra impact when paired with culottes, a dress or a skirt that shows a little leg!

Drop earrings frame the face whether hair is pulled back or left down. They can be paired with a work dress or blazer, or used to elevate an outfit for the evening. For an everyday look, stick with a classic, subtle styles or pick ones with a mixture of colour and metal for added impact.

You should always have a statement necklace on hand, as it is perfect for dressing up a simple T-shirt and jeans or your fave LBD.

A gentlemen's-inspired watch is one that can be incorporated into any "everyday outfit." It has a strong look that is tailored with a feminine touch. A watch like the Swarovski City Simple White Bracelet Watch incorporates the feminine touch with a clean face and sparkly bezel, yet looks strong on the wrist. Plus watches are always a perfect investment piece as it's an accessory that lasts the tests of time.
