March 8th, 2018 at 5:00pm

Spring is finally on its way, and I personally cannot wait for warmer weather and the outfits it will bring. Not only does the season motivate me to try out more playful styles, but thanks to the unpredictable temperature and constant precipitation, it’s also such a fun time to experiment with layering. Of course, if you view unexpected forecasts as a source of stress rather than excitement, getting dressed in the morning can easily become a conundrum. But have no fear: As always, our community is coming in hot this spring with a myriad of fire looks to inspire your outfits for spring. From monochrome layers to dress-and-tights combinations, here are six ideas to kick-start your foray into warmer weather.

Create a Saturday-Ready Look in a Dress-and-Top Combination

A little black number layered over a turtleneck is a perfect look for those spring days that are still a bit chilly. Pair them with vintage sunglasses and white sneakers and you’ve got a simple but put-together weekend ensemble.

Embrace Playful Winter Details for a Cheerful New Vibe
