Spring cleaning is a dreadful task, but there’s one area of the house we’ll always happily attack: the closet. If looking through last year’s clothes doesn’t spark instant joy (hat tip, Marie Kondo), you don’t need to chuck everything and start from scratch. Just focus on spring 2017 trends, find outfit inspiration that grabs your attention, and start mixing with what you’ve already got.
Cropped T-Shirt + Shorts
Witness the totally wearable, impressively unfussy crop top: It looks all grown up with leg-lengthening shorts, sexy heeled sandals, and glitzy jewelry.
Peplum Top + Printed Skirt
This year, the flouncy hem gets giggly with whimsical separates and eye-catching accessories. Pair it with a lively print and a bright, bold bag for an ensemble that really came to play.
Jumpsuit + Playful Accessories
A navy blue jumpsuit feels fresh when you’ve been living in shades of black all winter. Keep it seasonal with open-toe sandals, an Easter-egg-hued handbag, and mirrored aviators. A trendy choker adds some edge to an otherwise sweet look.
Skinny Jeans + Layers
The way to style your trusty denim these days? With lots of layers on top. Throw a camo jacket and lace bralette over your white button-down, and you’ll be ready for warm days and chilly nights alike.
Thin Knit + Embroidered Skirt
Transition into warmer weather with a delicate sweater that’ll ward off an evening chill. To keep the look from veering into country club territory, balance it out with leather pumps, an embroidered boho skirt, and notice-me accessories.
Jean Skirt + Striped Blouse
Though we can’t quite put our finger on why, the ’90s classic turns any ensemble into a statement this season. Cool details root the look firmly in the present: Observe the bowed blouse and leopard-print booties.
Flared Jeans + Graphic T-Shirt
The secret to stepping out in bellbottoms: Counter the sophistication of crisp, retro-cut denim with pieces that don’t take themselves too seriously. A black blazer is all business, but slung over a graphic tee and and look-at-me accessories, it makes perfect sense with bootcut bottoms.
