Here are their nine picks, all of which should help inspire your spring shopping list.

The 25 Best Spring-Ready Trench Coats, from $70 to $1,375

1. tkees Caro Sandals

“I’ve been lusting after the Bottega Veneta padded and quilted slides since they hit the runway last year, but I just can’t fathom spending $1,000 on a pair of sandals. These minimalist shoes offer the same sort of understated and versatile elegance that could be worn out to dinner or for a day spent poolside, but at a fraction of the price. Oh, and the soft colors are like a Pantone fever dream.” —Roberta Fiorito, branded content editor

2. sophia Webster Laurelle Wrap-around Floral-print Leather Sandals

“Whenever I don’t know what to wear, I reach for my favorite jeans and an easy mockneck tee. The easiest way to jazz up such a basic outfit is with bold, bright accessories, like these floral wrap sandals by Sophia Webster. They do cost more than I typically like to spend on any single item, but for a design this cheerful, they’re definitely worth the splurge.” —Abby Hepworth, associate editor

superga high top sneakers

3. superga 2795 Cotu White Sneakers

“I have the low-top version of these classic sneaks, but I’ve been eyeing the high-tops so I can wear them with cropped jeans and dresses when the weather starts warming up. Plus, they match everything in my closet.” —Rachel Gulmi, associate managing editor

4. rothy’s Sapphire Flats

“Rothy’s has been a dear favorite of mine (and Meghan Markle’s) for some time. And they just launched an adorable pair of Mary Jane flats, tied with a bow and made from their signature sustainably sourced and ethically produced fabric, which is crafted from recycled plastic water bottles. The shoes literally mold to your feet and look just as good with a fancy dress as they do with leggings and an oversized sweater. I have my eyes peeled for the next time we see the duchess, because I’m sure she’ll be rocking a pair of these.” —Greta Heggeness, associate editor

5. yuul Yie Sofia Sandals

“I love everything about these sandals: the sensible heel, the neutral tones and the interesting details. I see myself getting a lot of wear out of them this spring.” —Jenny Jin, beauty director

6. everlane The Editor Slingback Heels

“These slingbacks just launched a few days ago, and they’ve been sitting in my cart ever since. I’ve been on the hunt for a more sophisticated everyday shoe (read: not my standard white sneaks) and these are just what I had in mind. I’m already dreaming up outfits I can wear to showcase the blush pink hue.” —Kara Cuzzone, assistant commerce editor

7. sanita Tinja Clogs

“I have a lot of foot pain because my ankles pronate, and it makes my feet flatter and wider than usual. Sexy, right? It also means finding cute shoes that are comfortable can be a struggle, especially in warmer weather. Clogs happen to be winners for me. These are dainty but sturdy, and I appreciate the cap toe, in case my pedicure isn’t up to par (or just doesn’t happen).” —Dara Katz, executive editor

8. gucci Burgundy Marmont Loafers

“I know they’re a major splurge, but I’ve been craving an infusion of classic styles into my otherwise trendy wardrobe, and this Gucci loafer totally satisfies that urge. The square toe and updated logo strap is an added bonus—especially since they don’t look like every other Gucci loafer out there.” —Dena Silver, fashion editor

9. jeffrey Campbell Arsen Pointed-toe Knee-high Boots

“I know most people save their tall boots for fall and winter, but I love styling mine with floaty sundresses in the spring and summer, especially midi dresses that hit just at the top of the boot. And while the pointed toe and stiletto heel might make these look uncomfortable, the heel is actually only 3¼ inches, which isn’t so bad when you combine it with the support of the tall shaft.” —Rachel Bowie, director of special projects
