10 Excellent Outfits I Plan on Re-Creating This Spring

It's safe to say that we all need to fall back in love with our clothes again. Don't get me wrong; I've loved lounging around in chic knitted sets, but now, in 2021, I'm making a point of relishing in the art of getting ready once more. However, after months of relying on the same staples day-in, day-out, if you feel somewhat uninspired when you throw open your wardrobe doors, rest assured you're not alone. I've also felt pangs of uncertainty when I pull out long-forgotten pieces from the depths of my rails.

Instead of letting these feelings overwhelm me back into my leggings, I decided to take to Instagram to indulge in a little scrolling. Any outfit that caught my eye, I saved in my collections. Revisiting them a couple of days later, there were a few looks—10 specifically—that caught my eye. The best part being, aside from a couple of new-season investments, many of the pieces I need to re-create them are already somewhere in my wardrobe just waiting to be rediscovered.

Scroll below to see the 2021 outfit ideas I love, then shop the pieces you need to fill any gaps you may have in your closets.

Style Notes: While camel, grey, and black outerwear might dominate our wardrobes, Amaka proves that investing in a bright-hued coat will instantly lift any outfit.

Shop the look:

Jigsaw Cable Knit Wool Hat (£35)

Burberry Neoprene Coat (£945)

Arket Fluid Cupro Trousers (£69)

Style Notes: Tick off two major spring trends in one by layering a floral-embroidered cardigan over shirting with supersize collars.

Shop the look:

& Other Stories Alpaca Blend Knit Sweater (£85)

Ganni Ruffled-Collar Cotton Shirt (£120)

Weekday Rowe Jeans (£40)

Style Notes: Mini skirts are back on the style agenda for 2021; give them some retro appeal by pairing of platform boots, much like French fashion icon, Anne-Laure.

Shop the look:

Monki Soft Cardigan (£30)

Alexander McQueen Prince of Wales Check Mini Skirt (£670)

Musier Mia Boots (£280)

Style Notes: All-black outfits aren't necessarily boring. Make like Monikh and wear shades of black in different textures, such as leather and satin, to create a cool contrast.

Shop the look:

Arket Oversized Leather Blazer (£290)

COS Cotton Jersey T-Shirt (£15)

Weekday Ida Skirt (£40)

Style Notes: Outfit combinations don't come much more classic than jeans and a shirt, but Sabina switches the look up by wearing a blue Oxford stripe with grey-toned jeans.

Shop the look:

Arket Relaxed Striped Shirt (£55)

Mango Violeta Irene Jeans (£60)

Dune Croft Fabric Pointed Toe Block Heels (£45)

Style Notes: This fresh white and teal outfit is one of the chicest outfits we've seen in a long while. Until temperatures start to rise, swap TyLynn's tank for an ecru knitted roll-neck.

Shop the look:

Samsøe Samsøe Margrit Mint Double-Breasted Blazer (£110)

Thomas Sabo Double Strand Necklace (£189)

Reiss Mia White Belted Trousers (£75)

Bottega Veneta Brown Leather Sandals (£685)

Style Notes: Checkerboard prints are going to be big news this year, and Camille's cardigan and top twin-set has gone straight to the top of our 2021 wish lists. Isn't it the most-perfect way of breathing new life into leggings?

Shop the look:

Gimaguas Camel Chess Cardigan (£125)

Gimaguas Camel Chess Top (£75)

Arket Ruched Leather Crossbody Bag (£89)

Ernest Leoty Laure Leggings (£60)

Style Notes: A navy skirt suit will always look chic; wear it with a chunky cable knit underneath and finish with chunky loafers and it'll feel very on-trend.

Shop the look:

COS Wool-Cashmere Jacket (£115)

Isabel Marant Étoile Ecru Romy Jumper (£415)

COS Pleated Front Skirt (£59)

Gucci Horsebit-Detailed Loafers (£670)

Free People Catalina Sweater Midi Dress (£88)

Daisy Jewellery Estée Lalonde Wavy Snake Chain 18k Gold-Plated Necklace (£109)

Manolo Blahnik Callamu Patent-Leather Mules (£575)

Paloma Wool Sanz Wool-Blend Cross-Over Jumper (£135)

Karen Millen Stretch Leather Jeans (£252)

Prada Vela Nylon Leather-Trimmed Backpack (£785)
