Right now you’re probably trekking around in a giant puffy coat and two pairs of socks, but soon enough it will be spring, aka that wonderful time of the year when you can finally shed your layers and wear cute clothes again. Namely, these 11 trends we’re already daydreaming about for 2017.

Wallpaper-Esque Florals

Remember how people decorated their houses in, like, 1972? That, in a nutshell, is how we want to dress come spring. Basically, we’re into any outfit (Michael Kors especially) that warrants the adjective “groovy.”

Modern Khaki

Chino fabric doesn’t seem inherently groundbreaking, but come 2017, we’re looking forward to wearing it in unexpected ways, like ruffled skirts (thanks, J.Crew), pretty blouses and, of course, our go-to trench coat.

Bold Stripes

A striped tee is one thing, but in the New Year we’re looking forward to going a little bigger where stripes are concerned. This could mean giant sequined stripes (a la Rosie Assoulin) or it could also mean a slightly updated spin on your favorite nautical sweater.

Statement-Making Tees

Graphic tees can be tough to pull off as a grown woman. They can sometimes read a little immature or sloppy, but tucked into a high-waisted skirt and topped with a pretty necklace (like Dior did here), the look is surprisingly refined.

Heart Motifs

Whether worn on your sleeve or across your chest, expect hearts to be all over the place come spring. If the Proenza Schouler look above is a little aggressive for your taste, find smaller graphics that spread the love subtly.

Pastel pink had its moment, but we’re ready for something a little brighter—and vibrant fuchsia is just the thing we’re looking for. If you’re not ready to go all out with a solid Sportmax dress, start with fuchsia-hued accessories before graduating to the bigger stuff (if you’re into that sort of thing).

High, Ruffled Necklines

A welcome change from plunging V necks, Victorian-inspired tops are elegant and appropriate without being too stuffy. Take a cue from Burberry and layer one under a printed jacket to keep the silhouette modern and cool.

Dresses Over Pants

Well, isn’t this a chic throwback? (Courtesy of Banana Republic.) To keep this often-maligned trend looking elegant, stick to neutral color combinations (like black and white) and long, clean lines that ensure a flattering end result.

Appropriate Bustiers

When you think bustier, you probably think bedroom, but worn atop a modest dress, it functions more like a wide belt, cinching your waist in a super-flattering way. (You can thank Tibi for the inspiration.)

Loud Earrings

Diamond studs these are not—and we’re obsessed. Over-the-top earrings are the easiest way to jazz up an otherwise plain outfit, a great conversation piece and just really fun to wear. Now, who’s got Naeem Khan’s number?

Mini Bags

Consider making one of your New Year’s resolutions to stop carrying around so much unnecessary stuff, especially since some of our favorite bags for spring can hold next to nothing. Petite purses are delicate and feminine (sigh, Delpozo) and aren’t a pain to lug around all day.
