Even though most parts of the country are freezing right now, spring is right around the corner, and stylish girls know it’s smart to prepare their wardrobes for the new season. (And frankly we’re over winter.) Retailers are already brimming with spring trends, and we’re ready to retire our overworn fall and winter pieces for fresh swaps like polka dots, shorts and Lucite sandals. Ahead, sift through our shopping guide to upgrade your lineup.
Swap This For That
Checked everything was huge for fall, from blazers to pants. Switch it up with a whimsical polka-dot pattern, which is especially adorable on flirty tops.
Vintage-inspired floral tea frocks are charming, girly and lighthearted for warmer days ahead. Wear with slides or sneakers for a feminine off-duty look.
Shorts were witnessed in numerous collections on spring runways, and we're ready to ditch our skirts for them. Polished designs and Bermuda lengths are the fashion-girl choice.
For spring, we're in the market for softer shades. They're utterly delicate and chic (and lilac is positioned to be the It color of spring 2018).
Stark white boots, heels and flats were a staple last season, but something more interesting has been catching our eye—Lucite. Shoes with transparent heels and PVC straps in a variety of hues are sexy, cool and edgy.
Lightweight toppers in technical fabrics are booting thick cold-weather outerwear to the curb. These practical parkas are ideal for spring showers and transitional weather.
When it starts to warm up we immediately reach for straw bags to tote on the street and on vacation. This season's iterations are cuter than ever thanks to standout shapes and embellishments.
