By Megan Koester

Congratulations! You just made it through another winter.

Now it’s time to shed all those layers, put your snow boots back in the closet, and embrace the sunshine by treating yourself to some of the hottest on-trend designer pieces for spring outfits. Here’s what you need to create the trendiest looks of the season:

Sandals
To start, kick off your clunky winter boots and slide into a chic pair of wedge sandals—the perfect accessory for all of your spring outfits. They’re comfortable enough to wear to the office, and stylish enough to take out on the town afterward. Take your search to Beyond the Rack, where you can find some great deals. Pro tip: Black leather ones are as versatile as they are classic.

Dresses

Gingham Dress from Neiman MarcusA gingham print just screams “spring.”

It’s a look that hearkens back to the ’50s, but still looks fresh and modern today.

The baby blue Sleeveless Gingham Seersucker Dress from MICHAEL by Michael Kors has a vintage-inspired belted waist and pleated skirt that and looks flattering on any body type.

Pair it with a blazer, or simply let your shoulders bask in the sunshine.

SkirtsMaxi skirt from Neiman Marcus

Maxi skirts create a flowy vibe—not only do they look ethereal in a light breeze, they can also do double duty by covering your ankles while there’s still a bit of chill in the air.

Just combine this bright, geometrically-patterned Lilly Pulitzer Nola Printed Maxi Skirt with a tank, add a cardigan, and you’ve instantly created one of many effortlessly chic spring outfits.

Overalls

The perfect combination of cool and casual, overalls can be transformed with accessories to create looks that range from stylish to sporty. While the style is definitely a throwback look, it’s also very much on-trend. You can find a plethora of overalls on Gilt. A classic blue wash with a little distressing looks perfectly broken-in, and cropped legs pair perfectly with your favorite wedge heel.

Jewelry

Fashion is all about the details. Dress up a basic frock or a slouchy pair of overalls with an on-trend piece of statement jewelry. This Venessa Arizaga Mary Jane Necklace is an of-the-moment combination of gunmetal plated brass and green melange thread—and it’s handmade in New York. Every piece is a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Gingham is the perfect fabric for Spring—it's timeless, breathable, and downright adorable. This sleeveless gingham seersucker dress, available through Neiman Marcus, flatters any body type.
