Six Amazon Favorites for Spring

|
Last week I rounded up my recent Express favorites since they were having a big sale, and I realized I haven't done a similar post of Amazon favorites in quite awhile. Since it's the first official day of Spring, I went digging through my outfit archives for some Amazon favorites I love that I think are great pieces to have for Spring. Some of these will work better for warmer or cooler climates, and some may work on Monday but not on Friday if you're having the kind of temperate swings we are lately! We had a really warm weekend and this t-shirt dress was perfect. I didn't re-take outfit photos since the only thing I changed was the nail polish. I wore this for Summer to Fall transition but I also think it's great for warmer Spring days.

I first shared this dress in this post along with two other Spring-friendly ways to style it. I'll go into more detail on the fit below, but first, here's a look at all six of Spring Staples from Amazon. 

ONE: DAILY RITUAL T-SHIRT DRESS

This dress is only $24 and it's called a "long sleeve" t-shirt dress. I'd say it's more of a 3/4 length or 7/8 length since the sleeves don't go all the way down to my wrists (they're not intentionally pushed up here). That length works great for me since it stays out of my way a little better in my everyday tasks. It runs true to size (I took an XS in this), but it's a little more fitted than the other dresses I have from the Daily Ritual line (e.g. the Daily Ritual short sleeve dress in this post is just a bit more of a relaxed fit even though I'm wearing the same size).

TWO: DAILY RITUAL BELTED CARDIGAN

This exact cardigan comes in five different colors (Black, Charcoal, Navy, Light Grey and Pale Heather/Oatmeal) and is true to size. As usual with this line, the fabric is really soft and comfortable. It's a good medium weight for Spring: not too heavy, not too light. On a milder Spring day here I can wear it with a cami like this, but on a colder day I would just as easily grab a long sleeve tee for a little extra warmth. My original post with this cardigan can be found HERE with more details.

THREE: DAILY RITUAL BATEAU NECK TEE
Black Tee (c/o) | Camo Scarf | Similar Jeans | Rebecca Minkoff Bag (c/o Shopbop) [Similar Bag] | Black Over the Knee Boots | Earrings | Similar Watch | Bracelet 

Okay, so it's just a t-shirt, but not all t-shirts are created equal and this is a good one! It's a great basic piece, true to size and only $16. You can pair it with an endless combination of scarves, jackets. cardigans etc. My original post for this is HERE with more details on the other pieces I'm wearing.

And BONUS! It comes in a sleeveless version! I wore these next two outfits for Summer-to-Fall transition weather but I think they'll both work for Spring-to-Summer too:

I took the same size in this top as the long sleeve version and I love the not tight but not too baggy style. It fits exactly the same as the long sleeve version. I can also wear a regular bra with this, which is definitely my preference. It's only $12 and a great functional piece. I shared two more ways to wear this (including a dressier, business casual look) in the original post HERE

I also wanted to share this outfit with the white version of the tank since it gives a better look at the length of the top: 
White Sleeveless Tank (c/o) | Similar Denim ShirtLeggings (c/o) | Sandals (c/o) (Budget Option) | Bag (c/o) (Budget Option) | Necklace | Similar Earrings

It does have enough length for me to wear it with leggings. Since I have a shirt tied at my waist, it makes it look a little shorter than it did just hanging solo. But it felt a little too shapeless to me just leaving it completely untucked with no definition at the waist so I opted to add the shirt at the waist.

FOUR: DAILY RITUAL UTILITY JACKET

If you aren't sure about keeping this jacket color clean, it also comes in Olive, Dark Grey and Navy. This jacket comes in numeric sizing: 2-16. I ordered a 2 (which is usually what I order in blazers at Express) and that worked out well. For reference this is still a little bit roomier than similar cargo jackets I have from Express or Old Navy in size XS, but it does have a drawstring at the waist to help give it more shape. The sleeves were also borderline long for me, but if you're taller than my 5'4" or have longer limbs you might appreciate that. Original post for this outfit is HERE with more details.

FIVE: CABLE STITCH TUNIC

One thing I found with this tunic sweater is that you can't wear a coat over it because of the way the sleeves attach, so I think it will work better for cooler Spring days when you don't need a coat but you're not ready for sleeveless tops and thin sweaters, either. I also think this sweater would look great with white jeans for Spring! It comes in two sizes - Small/Medium and Large/X-Large. I'm wearing the S/M and it's roomy and plenty long! I suppose it runs true to size, but because of the dual-size options and oversized fit in general it's not easy to make direct comparisons to other brands. I'm 5'4" for reference, and it's definitely long enough to wear with leggings. It's also longer in the back, so even if you're a few inches taller than me this should still be a good option for you. The sweater material itself is nice and soft, but it's not a super warm piece. It's a very open knit texture, so it definitely requires a layer underneath for coverage and warmth. For more details see the original post HERE.

SIX: CABLE STITCH STRIPED PULLOVER SWEATER

Last but not least, a nautical striped sweater is a classic for Spring! This is true to size and there's not much else to say. I've worn this many times over the past year since I first got it and it's holding up well. You can see more outfits with this HERE, HERE and HERE with several options for styling it in more a Spring-y way.

And that brings us to the end of the six (plus!) Amazon favorites for Spring! Since many of these outfits came from "older" posts I did try to update the links with similar options for anything that was sold out, but I apologize if I missed a few pieces here and there. It gets a little overwhelming in posts like this! Plus, in another month at least half of the "current" similar options I found will be sold out anyway, so trying to keep links up to date is like shoveling snow in a snowstorm. But enough about snowstorms! Today is the first official day of Spring and I'm ready for it!

  1. You have found some great pieces from Amazon! I ordered a third Prime Wardrobe box and chose a Daily Ritual dress, it is so soft! I really love that tunic sweater and if it wasn't getting so warm I'd order it. The bateau neck looks so good on you!
    I hope you are having a great week Gina!

  2. Those are some great finds. I like the basic tee dress. Always a great staple. And, I love ballet neck tees. I need to check out that long sleeve version. Since it is always cold where I live (most of the year) - those sweaters with lower armholes make it almost impossible for me to buy them. Because they get all bunched up in my jackets. Hope you have a great Wednesday!

  7. So many great pieces! I need to start shopping Amazon more often. I think the only wardrobe piece I have ever ordered from Amazon was shoes.

  11. So many bloggers are buying clothes off of Amazon now. It's nice to see the reviews as I'm always leary buying clothes from Amazon. I really like the striped sweater.

  13. I like that you included some warmer options for those of us that have temps in the 50s and 60s for spring. That nautical sweater was one I admired last year but never ended up getting. That may have to change this year!
