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

To help you get started, I've rounded up a few of my favourite wardrobe essentials and accessories that will take your look to the next level. 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.

What items would you add to the list? Let us know in the comments!

  • Classic White Blouse
    Neiman Marcus
    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.

  • Fit & Flare Dress
    Nordstrom
    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.

  • Cropped Khaki Pants
    Loft
    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.

  • Sailor Stripe Shirt Or Sweater
    J.Crew
    A quintessentially Parisian look when paired with cigarette jeans or tucked into a midi skirt, the sailor striped shirt or sweater with navy or black stripes is a timeless wardrobe staple.

  • Trench Coat
    Loft
    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.

  • Lace-Up Flats
    Aldo
    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!

  • Nude Heel
    Hush Puppies
    Nude heels are always on trend and never go out of style. They're simple, gorgeous and can be worn day or night.

  • Clutch Purse

    Spice up your wardrobe with a brightly coloured clutch. This chic and gorgeous accessory will add a pop of colour to your outfit.

  • Classic Drop Earrings
    Anthropologie
    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.

  • Statement necklace
    Ralph Lauren
    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 Men's-Inspired Watch
    Swarovski
    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.
