The idea of a wardrobe essential is pretty subjective. Some define it as the few pieces (like the white T-shirt and the black blazer) that truly are seasonless and always have a place in your closet; others expand the definition to encompass those trend-driven items (like the Instagram-favored fluted-sleeve dresses and the moody floral tops) that are suddenly everywhere and feel essential in the moment. For spring 2019 there are already a handful of fashion buys that feel like they fit in either or both boxes: color-blocked button-ups, allover printed midi dresses, minimal hoops…some feel incredibly familiar, while others are direct responses and references to the latest runways. Ready for spring or not, these pieces are bound to show up everywhere, so you might as well start shopping them now. We break down the 12 of-the-moment items to round out your wardrobe, ahead.
