Spring is here. Aside from escaping the frigid cold and warming days, Spring brings with it a need for a refresh. It's time to switch up your rotation — toss away those heavy jackets, chunky snow boots, thick scarves, and any remembrance of frigid windchills. To help you with this closet reset, we have put together a Spring Toolkit with some of the most versatile, layer-friendly, colorful, and rain-ready Spring wear options of 2022.

Silk has been a cornerstone of Spring/Summer wardrobes for decades thanks to its breathability, lightweight quality, and reflective luster. The shiny texture levels up any outfit, meaning you can wear it with shorts, denim, or even track pants for an easy go-to spring style.

With the warm weather season right around the corner, we've perused the web for the best silk shirts available to buy right now. In our curation below, you'll find everything from luxury fashion house designs, to more affordable classics, with vibrant options from the likes of Casablanca and BODE, long-sleeve iterations by Ahluwalia, and even a see-through number from GCDS. Dive in.
