Whether you’re dressing up in your Easter finest for a mid-morning feast or joining friends for a weekend brunch, we think this minty shift is the perfect dress for the occasion. Pair it with heels in an unexpected, complimentary color and a neutral bag (to stuff all the extra muffins in when you leave).

Whether your warm spring weekends include a music festival, a stroll around a farmer’s market, or brunch with friends, these straight-from-the-runways, global-inspired pants are versatile enough to fit any occasion. Plus, you’re basically getting away with wearing pajamas in public–boom! Since the pants are the focus, keep your other pieces neutral and add a metallic sandal to finish the look.

We’re prepping for spring’s April showers (those have gotta be coming any day now, right?!?!) with a rain-ready outfit. We styled this one from the feet up with waterproof shoes that won’t weigh you down or put a damper on your style. Pair these loafer-style kicks with a bright coral pants (to keep any dreary feelings at bay), a comfy boyfriend button-up, and your classic trench for a rainy day outfit that you’ll actually look forward to wearing.

First came the ballet flats, then the topknots, and with the addition of blush pink this spring, it’s safe to say there’s a dance trend ruling the fashion world. From voluminous tulle skirts to small, romantic details, ballet-inspired pieces add a touch of elegance and feminine flare to any outfit (even if there’s not a graceful bone in your body!).

Wear it Now Wednesday: The Perfect Spring Jacket

If there’s one key piece for spring it’s the perfect jacket. While we opt for a trench at work and statement toppers for our nights out, most days we’re living in a military-inspired jacket like this one. It works as a neutral and plays nicely with dressy, sequin pieces and drapey tees alike. We couldn’t resist partnering this version with on-trend boyfriend jeans and bright heels.


Wear It Now Wednesday: Cocoon Coat

We’ve noticed a new silhouette on the block when it comes to outerwear. The cocoon coat was all over fashion week and it’s slowing winding its way into our favorite fast-fashion stores as well. While the silhouette has been on the scene since Balenciaga debuted it in 1957, it’s recently been sidelined by body-hugging car coats and edgy moto jackets. We love the cocoon coat because it’s easy to wear. Plus, it exudes a downtown-cool-girl sense of style. The newest versions for spring come in candy-colored pinks, dusty rose, sky blue, and ivory hues. We’d pair this blue one with a white and black ensemble and some chic blush accessories.


Wear It Now Wednesday: Skip to Spring

Let’s all agree to just ignore the cold and lingering snow, shall we? We’re focusing our energies on bright new separates, perfectly worn-in denim, and airy accessories. If by any chance you are still dusted in snow (like us, le sigh) pair this bright jacket with a camel or white turtleneck until temperatures warm up.
