Gird your loins, ladies, wedding season has begun! Should you find yourself in the grip of a what-do-I-wear panic, breathe easy. We’re planning to bring you a few different wedding outfit ideas to help this matrimonial melee go smoothly. First up, for a breezy beach wedding we offer you this gorgeous maxi dress. Worn with a long, silky slip it’s the epitome of glam without the fuss. The floaty material will keep you cool while the gold accessories add a dressy feel. We just had to throw in that iridescent bag, too, a girl’s gotta have a wow factor! Once the wedding is over, ditch the slip and wear this over your bathing suit while you preside over the poolside festivities. Two looks for one!

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.

Around here we completely understand shopping for shopping’s sake. After all, a lady needs options! But, when an opportunity comes around to give back we can’t help but join in. The floaty, teal top above is part of an effort to raise money for Autism Awareness. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from sales of this top will go to Giant Steps Illinios, a not-for-profit organization that provides services to adults and children with Autism. We’ve styled the top with a tuxedo pant and trench for a spring-perfect workday look. But, however you style yours, giving back is a good look.

You may be used to seeing chambray on just about everyone these days and for good reason! This comfy, do-it-all fabric is a fabulous layering piece. We’re beyond ready to pull our lighter versions out of the closet and pair them with this season’s full skirts for a feminine, classic look. If you’re feeling extra fashion forward, slip a short-sleeve sweatshirt over your chambray and let the collar, cuffs, and hem hang out for an oh-I-just-threw-this-awesomness-together 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.

Call it a nod to America’s prepster roots–this spring’s biggest trend is “shirt dressing.” Everyone is buttoning up and we must admit we’re smitten. This look is at once comfortable and put-together. Its simplest iteration is the shirtdress–a one-step outfit in the making. This version by Gap is easy on the wallet and you’ll wear it all season long. Plus, can we just note that fabulous bag is from Old Navy!??!?! Talk about stepping up your game!
