6 Fashion Essentials to Get You in a Spring Mood

You may not be able to do a wardrobe overhaul each and every season, but you can add several pieces that will strategically freshen your entire closet. The right addition can make a winter outfit feel warm-weather wearable, and an old ensemble feel brand new. These six essentials are all you need to put a—dare we say it?—spring in your step.

The Dress

1 / 6


If you've ever dreamed of twirling around a rink to the theme from Ice Castles, you're in luck, because swingy skater dresses with full skirts are in plentiful supply—especially floral-printed frocks. To prevent the look from getting too little-girly, pick a frock in a thicker fabric or one with a neutral pattern.

The Top

2 / 6


You'll never go wrong with a print top that's bold and colorful. 

The Bottom

3 / 6


If you don't have a pair of white jeans in your wardrobe this spring, you might as well be living in 2012. Forget what your mom told you about Memorial Day, too.

The Shoe

4 / 6


If you buy one pair of shoes this season, make sure it's a neutral color (goes with everything) that features an ankle strap (so hot right now). How about this pair? 

The Accessory

5 / 6


A bold, statement necklace goes with neutrals or prints. This one will last for several seasons and look great on any skin.

The Handbag

6 / 6


Ditch the winter sack and pick up a ladylike envelope clutch. Doesn't it make you feel 100% more polished?
