If ditching your itchy gray sweaters for breezy blouses sounds like a nice change of pace, we’re with you. That’s why we’ve partnered with Macy’s to put together a few suggestions for making the jump back into spring fashion with this season’s best trends in mind. No, you’re not wearing rose-colored glasses. We’re just wearing a whole lot of pink.

Smocked Floral Dress + White Sneakers

Florals for spring is nothing new, but the appeal this year is in the presentation. Big, feminine prints breathe new life into the perennial pattern, especially in the form of a vintage-inspired dress with a high neck and longer hem. This is no time to be shy—the louder the flowers on your getup, the better. Juxtapose the frock with tennis shoes to keep the look modern and casual.

Bare-Shoulder Blouse + Fringed Denim

Boy, do we love a top that gives our shoulders some much-needed fresh air (they’ve been suffocating beneath mohair for months). The cold-shoulder trend shows no signs of slowing down, and this season it even comes with updated details. Subtle ruffles, exaggerated sleeves and bold colors keep the look fresh for spring. Pair this top with denim bottoms, but be sure to rock a crop to show off your new slides.

Graphic Midi Dress + Heels

Another print hitting our wardrobe? Graphics. From bold checks to geometric designs, these mod patterns are playing out on everything from bags to dresses. Work them into your wardrobe in the form of a midi dress that will take you from meetings to Mother’s Day and every errand in between. Finish the look with a sleek pair of block-heel leather mules and consider graduation season handled.

Blush Top + Blush Pants

This trending color reminds us of everything we love about spring (which is mostly just the tulips and Easter candy), and we’re fawning over a head-to-toe blush ensemble. To avoid looking like a toddler, pair edgier pieces like straight-leg pants and a loose-fitting top. Pull it all together with a pair of rosy pumps to show you’re committed to the monochrome cause.
