Printed Dress

Dresses are a wardrobe staple for any season, but they’re especially essential for spring, and a pretty printed number with punch — like the look Community actress Gillian Jacobs is wearing here — is a definite must.

White Pump

White pumps are making a major comeback this spring and look particularly chic in a pointy-toe or ankle-strap version. Complement them with another neutral color — like actress Emmy Rossum does — or use it as a substitute for nude pumps with a bright ensemble or bold print.

Lace Jumpsuit

Just because it’s spring, that doesn’t mean you have to move your black pieces to the back of the closet. Instead, use the hue in a fun silhouette and fabric, like Lizzy Caplan’s chic lace jumpsuit.

Tasteful Crop Top

After being bundled up all winter, everyone wants to shed the layers when spring rolls around. Keep it cute, classy, and ultra-stylish with a crop top that shows just a hint of skin, and up the fashion factor by pairing it with a matching high-waisted skirt or cropped pant.

Floral Pant

Speaking of pants, a floral-print version is one of the easiest ways to work the quintessential spring pattern into your wardrobe. Pair them with a basic tee for a casual look or a bright tank for a night out, or follow Diane Kruger’s lead for an edgier version by wearing it with a matching blouse.

Denim Jacket

We all know that distressed denim makes for the perfect casual-chic look in spring — especially when paired with a bright pump — but a denim jacket like Mandy Moore’s can make quite the impact, too, when worn over a pencil skirt and lace blouse.

Sparkly Clutch

Pastel totes and patterned cross-body bags may be on your wish list for the season, but a sparkling clutch — like actress Nina Dobrev’s — can be the simplest way to make any spring outfit shine.

Bright Blazer

Whether you’re throwing it on over a T-shirt and jeans for a business-casual look or with a body-hugging dress for a night out on the town, a bold blazer like Scarlett Johansson’s can be the perfect pop of color for spring.

Embellished Collar

Forget statement necklaces; look towards statement collars instead. Whether it’s a studded Peter Pan collar on your favorite sleeveless shirt or an embellished neckline on a sweet spring dress, this simple accessory is how to upgrade your style.

Something Striped

We’ve already professed our love for stripes this season, but it bears repeating: Whether it’s a dress, pant, blouse, or bag, you need a bold stripe hanging in your closet this spring.
