    1. A tie-sleeve shirtdress that'll give you the first opportunity to show off those legs that you've been hiding in tights and pants for the past six months.


    Promising review: "I was so pleased with this shirt dress! It is so much prettier than pictured. It's very long, so you have the option to wear it with or without leggings. If you’re on the fence, take a chance." —PAULA A W

    Get it from Roaman's for $62.99 (available in sizes 12-32 and in four colors and patterns).

    2. A basic cardigan to keep on hand at all times because the weather is still unpredictable and you can't risk being without layers.


    Promising review: "This is even better than the picture! The color is so pretty! The material is nice. I'm a person who gets hot easily when wearing layers. This material is very breathable. It's the perfect weight. It's perfect for spring!" —Lacey Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 17 colors and styles).

    3. A polka-dot midi dress to put you so ~on the dot~ of spring fashion that all your friends will be asking where you got this.,

    Promising review: "This is my favorite dress of all time! I have it in navy and red! I am 5”3 and 123lbs, and I ordered the small. It is the perfect length to wear out, but I also wear it to work, and it is work appropriate. I have received more compliments on this dress than any other I own! It is so comfortable, and I have washed them both several times, and they still look brand new. I can not say enough good things about this dress—particularly compared to other brands I have purchased. You will NOT be disappointed!!!" —Lindsay Thornburg

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    4. A pair of rain boots you'll glitterally fall in love with the moment you see them. I mean, come on, have you seen cuter rain boots ever!?!


    Promising review: "These boots are amazing. I've gotten quite a few compliments while wearing them. I linger between an 8 and a 9, so I got a 9 and feel that was a good choice. There's some extra room, so I can wear thicker socks without having my feet feel squished. I've only worn them with jeans so far, so no reviews on if they rub against your bare leg." —catherine

    Get them from ModCloth for $39 (available in sizes 6–10).

    5. A floral peplum blouse to pair with jeans on a night out with your friends. You'll look good and feel great in this.


    Promising review: "If I can give this 20 stars....I would. I LOVE THIS BLOUSE!!! You would need a camisole under it, but it's a beautiful feminine blouse. I ordered the 0XL and I'm a fits perfect. I've also ordered ALLLLLLL the other colors available in my size. You can wear with jeans and heels." —SoozanJBee

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes 0X-5X and in nine colors).

    6. A swing midi dress with pockets (!!!) you can wear with a short or long sleeve shirt underneath because it's not quite warm enough for spaghetti straps.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress so much I bought another one. I wear medium shirts and got this in a medium. The size was perfect for me. I was excited to wear it, but it has been a little cool out, so I put a long sleeve white

    shirt under it, and it looked real cute. I know I will be wearing this a lot in the coming spring and summer months." —Love Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes X-2X and in 33 colors and prints).

    7. A lightweight trench coat ~olive~ so much and want to wear with basically everything I already have in my closet.


    Get it from Walmart for $16.88 (available in sizes S-XL).

    8. A slit maxi dress you can throw on in the morning when you wake up refreshed and ready for the day because it's already bright and warm outside. Seasonal depression who?,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this. First, the fit is great. It’s stretchy, and at 5,5” ish and 135 lbs, it hit me in all the right places. Second, It’s so versatile! I can wear it to church if I tape/pin the slit in place, or I can wear it out and show a little leg. It’s great for summer style wise, but a bit heavy for really warm weather. I can imagine this both in spring and fall and even winter with the right jacket. Style it up or down, for a date or a beach day, it’s a good basic to throw in your closet." —Kate Christensen

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in green, black, and navy).

    9. A beautiful watercolor floral maxi skirt that may not be "groundbreaking" for spring, but will probably stop people in their tracks as they see you strutting down the street in it like you own the world.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this maxi skirt! It looks expensive, and the quality is better than I expected. I can't wait to wear it! I'm quite petite (100lbs, 5"2), and XS fits me perfectly. The length is just long enough for my heels. No need for alteration." —Jane Suthara

    Get it from Amazon for $49+ (available in sizes XS-2X and in 10 patterns).

    10. A pair of two-tone jeggings because you're probably tired of the jeans you've been wearing all winter and these babies will spice up you look.

    American Eagle

    Promising review: "I got my normal size pants, and they fit perfectly. I had so many people ask where my pants were from and complimented me. People were messaging me online about these pants. I strongly recommend getting these. They look so good with heels or booties." —HAYLEY

    Get them from American Eagle for $52.46 (available in sizes 00-20 and in short, regular, and long).

    11. A embroidered shirt dress you'll really bloom in. Sorry, I had to.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress! It's a classy length for a shirt dress. The embroidery is cool and gives it some added flare. It would be perfect for going out to brunch with your friends. I got a size small, and it's super comfortable! Just needs to be ironed!" —Priscilla

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes XS-4X and in blue and pink).

    12. A floral cardigan your spring style can really ~grow~ into. This beauty will be your go-to for the next couple months.


    Promising review: "This is just as cute as in the picture. This is my second cardigan from this company, and I love them both. I love the lightweight material for spring. They wash well on permanent press, but I hang them to dry like I do most of my clothes." —Lorilea Conyer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.89+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 12 colors).

    13. A one shoulder top that'll put a wrap on any (false) idea you have that spring style is not the best style. After covering everything up, it's time to let yourself (and your shoulder) shine!


    Get it from Walmart for $26.50 (available in sizes XS-3X and in navy, yellow, and black).

    14. A high neck chiffon blouse made of lightweight fabric so it will still breathe when you find yourself in a building that has decided winter is not over and has the heat cranked up to 10000 degrees.,

    Promising review: "I adore this shirt! It is see through, so buyer beware! But it's nothing you cant fix with a cami underneath. I personally didn't wear anything but a bra underneath it because you couldn't really see through it unless you stand directly under lighting. This shirt really goes well with anything, its extremely breathable material and perfect for spring days. There are two buttons on the back of the neck which can be a little tricky but nothing too serious! I highly recommend this shirt!" —Gamora

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in six patterns).

    15. An cut-out ankle bootie if you just can't let your love for boots go. It's okay! I'm right there with you. These pretties are an updated style to show a little ankle.

    Promising review: "These took a while to ship, but they were so worth the wait! They are SO cute!! I love them! I do wish I would’ve sized down. I’m normally a 7.5, and these didn’t come in half sizes, so I ordered an 8. They are too big, even with socks. I added a heel pad, and it helps." —Jessica

    Get them from Amazon for $23.98+ (available in whole sizes 5-12 and in 14 colors and styles).

    16. A sweater and skirt two-piece you'll be blushing to pull out of your closet as soon as the temperature starts to rise. Plus, the sweater will keep you cozy when you forget that it still gets cold at night.


    Get the set from ASOS for $99 ($48 for sweater and $51 for the skirt; both available in sizes 14-22).

    17. A kimono-style top to throw over a basic outfit you're wearing to make it anything but. It will take your outfit from a 10 to at least a 15, I promise.,

    Promising review: "I’ve literally had over a dozen women stop me and ask where I got this fabulous kimono. It’s so versatile and light weight—perfect for spring and summer! You can wear it over jeans, to the beach, or even dressed up for evening! I love it so much that I ordered the green palm print one too! Do yourself a favor, and order one today!" —moneyhoney

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-5X and in 36 patterns).

    18. A lantern sleeve top to re-lace your basic tee and jeans situation.


    Promising review: "Everyone loves this top when I wear it. It's comfortable. It's elegant. What else do you want?" —ADavis

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in four colors and styles).

    19. A chambray tie waist shirtdress you can throw on when you oversleep but still want to look like you tried. You friends will have no idea that you got out of bed 15 minutes ago when you show up for brunch.


    I'm wearing this dress as I write this post, and let me tell you, this is one of the softest dresses I own. It feels like I'm basically wearing my pajamas at work, and who doesn't like that? Plus, even though it's soft, it's still lightweight and keeping me cool on one of the first nice days of the year. So that's a win-win for me.

    Get it from Loft for $79.50 (available in sizes XXS-2X).

    20. A bomber jacket so chic, Beck from You probably owns it, so just be careful with who you start dating when you wear this...,

    Promising review: "Originally, I was looking for a heavier bomber jacket, but this turned out better because this jacket is so light! It looks exactly like the picture. It's perfect for spring or summer. There's a stretch on the waistband, so it's roomy and comfortable. So I was happy! I love the color on this jacket! It stands out, and I can pair this jacket with just about anything for day or night! It's perfect, and the material is good too." —Diana Cardenas

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-2X and in 12 colors).

    21. A lightweight button down shirt you might as well buy in both long sleeve and short sleeve versions because they're so comfy, you're going to want to wear them at least twice a week.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE this top. I’m 5’7 148 lbs (athletic build) 34DD, and I ordered a small. It’s oversized, so the small is perfect. I’d recommend sizing down one from your usual size. It's super comfortable, and since I ordered the white short sleeve, I can continue to wear it through spring. I’ll be ordering more colors!' —Joy

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-2X and in 16 colors and styles).

    22. A pair of floral sneakers that'll get you SOOOO many compliments. I mean, this babies are worth not seeing the sun for the past couple months.

    Kate Spade

    23. A rain trench coat so you can still look and feel stylish when you remember that the weather isn't always perfect in spring...and it will still rain. UGH,

    Promising review: "The jacket is fabulous! The color and size are true to description. Good value for the price. Lightweight, but versatile, this jacket is a go-to-piece for transitional weather, and will be great for the spring!" —Zonshopper729

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 14 colors).

    24. A double notch blazer you can dress up for work or down with a pair of jeans. Both looks will have you feeling classy and ready to take on whatever the day throws your way.,

    Promising review: "This jacket is SO cute and an amazing value!! It's very well made! All finished seams inside, a nice weight material that is perfect for the office and spring/fall for that little bit of extra coverage. I snipped out the shoulder pads (don't need any help there), and they came out very easily. I also snipped off the buttons on the sleeves, they are the only thing about the jacket that looks a little cheap. Everything else is beautiful, and the fit is so flattering. I might buy it in every color!" —Sarah P.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 34 colors and styles).

    25. A pair of wide leg cotton pants that'll let your ankles see the light of day. They'll scream "thank you" (I promise).

    Frank & Oak

    Get them from Frank & Oak for $79.50 (available in sizes 0-12).

    26. A patterned jumpsuit you'll be feeling yourself in the whole day you wear it. And you should. Own your spring style, you rockstar!,

    27. A chiffon embroidered floral blouse I sheer-ly should own because look how great it looks on everyone.,

    Promising review: "This blouse is absolutely beautiful! The embroidery is the real deal. It is sheer, so I got a smooth fitted camisole to wear underneath.

    I am truly surprised at what a beautiful blouse this is. And for the price, it's a steal. Wear it with a pair of jeggings, and you got yourself a great look. It's definitely a great buy." —Sandi Mejer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in one size that fits size 4-18 and in black and navy).

    28. A polk dot ruffle skirt you should wear as much as you can because it will be a ~ruff~ time when you have to put this baby away next winter.

    TJ Maxx

    Get it from TJ Maxx for $24.99 (available in sizes 4-14).

    29. A denim jacket that's so much of a staple you'll wonder how you lived your life before owning this. It goes with everything and makes you look good. What's not to love?,

    Promising review: "This is great for chillier spring days or summer nights. This goes over anything and has an unbeatable price for a denim jacket. It has just a little bit of stretch, which makes it even more flattering. I throw it over almost everything for a put together and polished look." —Laura0806

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S-2X and in five colors).

    30. An off-the-shoulder shirt to help you give winter the ~cold shoulder~ as you say, "see ya later cold temps and snow!".


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this shirt! It's super comfy! It does run on the larger side though. I usually order a large in shirts so that they fit looser (I am 5'5" and wear a 6-8 usually), but after reading reviews, I decided to order a medium. I could have probably even done the small, but I really love how flowy it is. I definitely will buy this again in other colors!" —Bethany

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S-2X and in six colors).

    31. A frill jacket because you're the type of person who likes a bit of a thrill and this jacket delivers on so many levels.


    Get it from ASOS for $64 (available in sizes 4-12).

    32. And a pair of espardrilles that'll take you from spring all the way through summer.
