By on May 5, 2016

Wondering which spring fashion trends to invest in and which to skip? Look no further- we’ve got your spring style covered with this round-up of the freshest looks of the upcoming spring season.

The Shirtdress

We love this denim take on the classic shirtdress, and the self-tie belt at the waist is a detail that instantly makes it a win. Roll the cuffs and pair with flats and a chunky necklace and you’re all set for brunch, a baby shower, or even the office. $160; Madewell.

Skip: The boxy or high-collared shirtdress that is too form-fitting.

Floral Print Dress

We love this blue floral print wrap-front maxi dress (as seen above in the featured image) with a flattering neckline and breezy, loose fit to flatter most body types. This light spring dress would look great with wedge sandals to complete the look for daytime or evening. $74; Astr.

Skip: The psychedelic floral dresses or chintz prints found on the runway.

Coral Blazer

Not only is the cotton blend of this blazer luxurious, but it hits low on the hip, making it the perfect length to wear over a tucked-in blouse with white Bermuda shorts or tailored capris. We can’t get enough of the gorgeous guava color, either. $89.98; Vince Camuto.

We adore the scoop neckline of this long-sleeved linen pullover. Wear with a pair of this season’s culottes and a statement piece necklace, this top streamlines the look. $79; Eileen Fisher (As seen in the feature image above).

Skip: A chunky knitted sweater that belongs in your winter wardrobe.

Tailored Culottes

Culottes are making a come-back. The secret to wearing this trend is to go tailored and combine with a sleek top, either tucked in or out for a streamlined look that doesn’t overwhelm. Pair with heeled sandals or pumps for a sophisticated touch. $105; Neon Buddha.

Skip: Culottes that are too short or look frumpy, rather than fresh and tailored.

Perfect for those chillier spring days, this cashmere-blend vest adds a layer of elegance to mid-rise ankle pants and a fitted shirt. Throw on a pair of heels and you’ve got a fresh spring look read to take you to dinner and beyond. $185; Neiman Marcus.

Skip: A short vest or one that doesn’t move fluidly- you want that silky feel and appearance.
