Insider picks for spring from six of the hottest emerging designer boutiques in the world!

How can we ensure that your closet is stocked with the best new items for spring? Go straight to the experts—the owners of some of our favorite shopping spots around the globe—and ask them to share their most prized-pieces with you, of course! Read on for their fabulous finds below.

Who: Jill Bradshaw of New York’s I Heart
What: Samantha Pleet Runaway Romper
Why: “It’s my favorite because I love rompers in general. This one has a great pattern and is perfect for those hot summer days! You can dress this up with heels and a necklace or you can wear it during the day with flip flops and look great both ways.”

Who: Natalie Barber of Chicago’s Language
What: Heidi Merrick Traveling Dress/Coat
Why: “This piece is perfect for spring because it works both as a dress or as a spring jacket. I absolutely adore the retro silhouette, with the added drama of the over-sized collar!”

Who: Nina May of London’s nina&lola
What: Olanic black heavy cotton jumpsuit
Why: “The jumpsuit is the first fresh idea for your spring wardrobe in years, probably since wedge sandals came back into fashion. This one by Olanic suits most body shapes and can be dressed up with the highest heels for a night out or down with flats for work.”

Who: Rati Sahi of San Francisco’s Anica
What: Rachel Comey Polo Dress
Why: “A comfortable cotton dress makes you feel effortlessly stylish, and I love the look of longer dresses right now. I will be wearing this one all spring with my brown-heeled lace-up booties or loafers during the day.”

Who: Rose Apodaca of Los Angeles’s A+R
What: Maria White Mebane necklace
Why: “We collect and sell pots by Maria at A+R, but it’s the holey, porcelain discs she’s strung with sterling silver omega cords that I’ll be wearing all spring and into summer. Against a bare decolletage, it’s that perfectly chic effect for both day or evening dress codes.”

Who: Steven Giles of Miami’s BASE
What: Yigal Azrouel Portrait Tee, Converse Power Hoodie, Opening Ceremony Tri-Color trunk, Nice Collective Long Swim
Why: “I love the whole idea of fresh and wearable sportswear, and we carry some of the best designers around. Miami is the equivalent of an urban-swamp, so cool, washable clothing is essential.”
