The yearly arrival of sunshine, and the long-awaited dismissal of chilly days, marks an important moment for fashion lover's wardrobes. Out goes the chunky knits and oversized jackets, and in comes the dynamic prints, breathable outerwear, and engaging separates. This Spring season, an emphasis on removable layers and the essence of DIY will take center stage, with style stand-outs including denim jackets, layered undershirts, and quick, yet stylish, accessories.

Playful and practical, while remaining undeniably cutting-edge, this year's Spring styles are pulling out all the stops. Animated silhouettes—fold-over denim pieces, cropped leather frocks, and mini-dresses—are certain grab to attention, especially when accented stylistically with crossbody keep-alls and and bulky jewelry. No longer weighed down by the stuffy monochrome styles of Fall and Winter, Spring fashionistas are making clashing patterns, prints, and textures the new go-to for the sunny season.

Versatile knit dresses from Coach and graphic tees from Desigual are perennial Spring favorites, while new pieces like cropped leather trousers from Ami and color blocked windbreakers from MSGM are new style-additions for Spring. With an emphasis on bold, colorful patterns and dynamic layering, expect sartorial statements unlike ever before this Spring.
