The 8 Fashion Pieces Our Editors Are Betting on for Spring

Sure, we may have been sipping rosé since February. But in our book, it’s not officially spring until we’re drooling over floral dresses and pastel culottes in nearly every store window. In the hope of being more sustainability-minded (and actually saving a litttttle money), we’re trying to narrow down our shopping list to only those items that are truly worth the cash and coveted closet space. That’s why we turned to our editors for their must-have clothing recommendations. Here, their eight favorite pieces for spring.

1. Frankie Shop Sage Corduroy Blazer

“I want a collarless blazer...and I want it in pale green. I’ll be able to wear it in a million ways: over a floral dress, with jeans and a white tee, and even buttoned all the way up as a shirt.”

2. Garnet Hill Linen Tunic

“Maybe I’m still under the influence of winter’s fastened-all-the-way-up cardigans, but I am 100 percent in on cozy buttoned things this spring. Specifically, I’m picturing myself wrapped in this airy, oversized striped number from Garnet Hill for the foreseeable future. Not only is the flax used to make their linen sourced from France (swoon), it’s also a bright neutral that’s perfect for pairing with, oh, I don’t know, every single other spring piece I own.”

3. Brahmin Crocodile-inspired Handbag

“I have the winter version of this bag in black (I’m obsessed). And now I’m coveting the more colorful versions for spring.”

—Sarah Stiefvater, editor

4. H&m White Platform Sneakers

“I’m obsessed with these sneakers. They’re cute and comfortable, and they go with almost every outfit I own. I’ve been wearing them through the winter, but I’m super excited to pair them with dresses and midi skirts this spring. Plus, they’ve stayed super white through three months of wear—I haven’t even had to wipe them down once.”

—Kara Cuzzone, assistant commerce editor

5. Outerknown Wildflower Dress

“I’ve been trying very hard lately to curb my shopping habits and to focus on brands that either give back in some way or are eco-friendly, sustainable or green. Outerknown definitely fits both of those bills, so this gorgeous floral frock will probably find its way into my closet this spring.”

6. & Other Stories Denim Trousers

“I live in jeans, and while my beloved Re/Done Stovepipes will always be my tried and true, I’m excited about a fresh silhouette for spring. Which brings me to the denim trouser! I love how this style is the ideal mix between a leg-elongating flare and hip-slimming wide-leg.”

7. Alepel Hand-painted Mules

“Slip-on white mules are the ultimate spring shoe hack: effortless but pulled together. With hand-painted details, this option from Alepel is my absolute favorite. I leave these by my front door and slide them on for walking the dog, running a quick errand or popping down the street for brunch.”

8. Acne Studios Leather Jacket

“I’m beyond ready to say good riddance to my puffer and swap in this belted leather jacket. The slightly oversized fit will easily layer over sweaters before the weather warms up, while the cropped cut hits at the perfect spot to show off my favorite high-waisted jeans. It’s definitely an investment, but I’ll have it forever and it will only get better with age.”

—Brianna Lapolla, senior commerce editor
