3 Types of Spring Tops to Include In Your Wardrobe + 20% OFF Your Purchase!

Huge thanks to Kohl’s and Collective Voice for sponsoring this post

To help you prepare your wardrobe for spring, let’s focus today on tops! Having a diversity of tops in your wardrobe ensures that you have an option for different activities and different occasions. So, here are a few types of tops that you can include in your wardrobe this spring. I’ve done posts like this in previous seasons, and a lot of you found it really helpful to think through different tops, so I’m partnering again with Kohl’s and Collective Voice to bring you a spring edition!

Kohl’s is one of my favorite places to shop because they offer such a HUGE variety of clothes and at extremely affordable prices! They carry everything from activewear to casual wear to work wear to special occasion attire, and they offer a range of sizes, including straight, petite, and plus options. On top of that, you can shop conveniently by ordering online and utilizing their in-store or curbside pickup options!

And, you can get 20% off your order with code FRIEND20 until 3/26 to make having a great spring wardrobe even more attainable!

Kohl’s has some great pieces available at super affordable prices right now, so there are plenty of options beyond the specific ones that I’m showing. I’ll round them up in a widget at the bottom of this post!

SIZING: I’m 5’6” and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

Casual: T-Shirt
I love springtime because I LOVE me some t-shirts! 😆 T-shirts are a staple for casual outfits, and graphic print tees in particular provide a lot of visual interest and style without you having to do anything extra.

I got a t-shirt from Kohl’s last summer that I LOVE. I’ve been waiting for new prints, and they’re available now! This tee is fairly thick, which means it glosses over lumps and bumps better than super thin tees, but it still drapes and hangs well. And it’s ONLY $7.99!!!! That’s the best part! It’s currently available in 6 prints in straight sizes HERE, and in plus sizes HERE. I wear size S.

Also, if you’re looking for straight leg ecru jeans, these are lightweight with stretch! They have a really high waist and come in regular and some tall lengths. This color is creamy and warm, and if you tend to wear warmer tones, a pair of jeans in this color serves as a great neutral that lightens up outfits and “springifies” everything. 😄 You can find them HERE! I’m wearing size 6.

I showed this cardigan a few weeks ago in a nicer casual outfit, but it totally works with t-shirts, too! It’s SO SOFT, cozy, and warm, but it’s very lightweight and doesn’t weigh you down. Such a good cardigan! Find it in 6 colors in straight sizes HERE. Available in 2 colors in plus sizes HERE. I wear size XS as it runs really large.

Shop Outfit:
T-shirt: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size S)
Cardigan: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size XS)
Jeans: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size 6)

Shoes: (exact—wearing size 8.5; similar)
Bag: Kohl’s (exact)


Nice Casual: Fashion Top
This is one that can get overlooked but is such a good option to have in your wardrobe. A “fashion top” is a step up from a casual tee but not quite a blouse, which allows you to have an elevated outfit without being dressy. This striped top is a great example of that. It’s made of cotton and rayon and works with jeans. You can dress it up with heels for going out to lunch or dress it down a bit with slip-on sneakers (like THESE) for everyday casual life.

Since my lifestyle is mostly super casual to elevated casual, I love tops like these! This one in particular is fairly thick but very lightweight. The stripes provide visual interest, plus they add a modern element because stripes, both horizontal and vertical, are trending this season. This top is just $23.99 with code FRIEND20 right now, and you can find it in 8 prints in straight sizes HERE, in plus sizes HERE, and in petite sizes HERE. I wear size S.

Another option for a fashion top is THIS eyelet top. It’s really cute and comes in 6 colors. I wear that in size S.

Also, these jeans are soft and STRETCHY with stretch in the waistband! If you’re in the market for a comfy pair of jeans, check these out! They’re only $41.99 on sale right now and available in short, average, and tall/long lengths, HERE. I’m wearing size 6 Short in the color Seattle. (I got them in Short to be ankle length on me.)

Shop Outfit:
Top: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size S)
Cardigan: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size XS)
Jeans: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size 6 Short)

Bag: Kohl’s (exact)

Dressy Casual & Work: Blouse
Last is a blouse! You can wear these with jeans for dates, church, or nice casual outfits for work, and you can pair them with slacks for business casual outfits. They’re really versatile!

The blouse I’m wearing here is a good one! It’s lightweight and is in a silhouette that you can wear with pants and tuck into skirts. You can wear it with pants for work like I’m doing here and dress it down easily with dark wash jeans for a nice casual outfit. It’s currently only $23.99 and comes in 6 colors and prints in straight sizes HERE. I wear size S.

Another blouse that can be paired with jeans and with slacks for work is THIS one, which comes in 13 colors and prints! It has a classic silhouette that will serve as an easy-to-wear option in your work wardrobe for a while. Find it in straight sizes HERE and plus sizes HERE and petite sizes HERE.

These work pants are pull-on pants with an elastic waistband! They are really lightweight and have a comfortable waistband, and they are polished for work. They’re affordable at just $31.99 and come in 6 colors in straight sizes, HERE! See them in plus sizes HERE and petite sizes HERE. I’m wearing size S.
