The mistake: You've been wearing your boyfriend jeans way too much lately. So much so, you've almost become your boyfriend.
The solution: If you can't part ways with your favorite pair of baggies but know you should make a denim change, embrace spring's epic assortment of flares. Equal parts flattering and comfortable, these jeans put an instantly fresh spin on your everyday wardrobe.

The mistake: When you indulge in an investment bag, you always lean toward a neutral hue (black, brown or gray), forgoing any sort of real statement-making quality. Snooze.
The solution: A purse rendered in a vibrant, bold shade can literally make an outfit. Next time you're in the market for a new It bag, trade an all-black satchel for one that's loud, luxe and lovely.

The mistake: Your current collection of floral separates make you look more like a walking curtain than a seasoned fashion girl.
The solution: Graphic floral prints infuse edge into ultra-feminine pieces, which can sometimes come off looking elderly or outdated. Wear yours with modern accessories for a fresh outcome.

The mistake: You own so many leather pieces your friends are beginning to wonder if you're a member of a top-secret biker gang.
The solution: Channel your love for leather in a new way by embracing Spring 2015's suede trend. It's just as cool but has a softer touch and is easier to wear in the daytime.

The mistake: You consider it a fashion faux pas to go head-to-toe monochromatic.

The mistake: You wear high heels. A lot. Your feet hate you.
The solution: Believe it or not, sky-high heels are on the out. Substitute your undying love for a little lift with a pair of flatforms. The trend is going to be huge for spring and—better yet—they're actually comfortable.
