Jump for joy—the sun is finally here. After a few hit-and-go weeks, we’re going to hedge our bets and say it’s officially safe to relegate those knits you’ve been sporting since October to the back of your wardrobe. Breezy spring looks have been a long time coming, and to mark this month's switch in weather, we’ve curated the ultimate new-season shopping list to inspire your next purchase.
Naturally, we’re leaning toward zingy handbags to spice up otherwise-muted looks and open-toed shoes that just might mean you have to treat yourself to a pedicure (sorry). So join the movement and embrace bold trousers, statement sandals and “look at me” sunglasses. Shop the 55 best pieces this spring has to offer below.
