Upgrade your classic white button-down for one with unique detailing, like this tie-front stripe version. The style will still pair just as well (if not better) with your other workwear staples. 

Basic Shirt: Theory Tenia Cotton-Blend Shirt ($245)

Trend-Driven Shirt: Protagonist Pinstriped Cotton-Poplin Tunic ($590)

Upgrade your lackluster suit pants for flared, ruffled trousers. This style reads professional and fun all at once, which can be hard to come by.

Basic Trousers: Mango Pleated Suit Trousers ($80)

Flared Trousers: Gucci Ruffled Silk Flared Pants ($1,100)

Upgrade your everyday blouse for a silky pajama-style version. With the loud print and comfortable material, you'll feel good all day long.

Basic Shirt: Topshop Simple Fitted Shirt ($55)

Pajama-Style Shirt: Zara Printed Pajama Style Blouse ($70)

Upgrade your overworked oversize tote for a bright mini bag. They don't call it "spring-cleaning" for nothing. It's time to downsize and get rid of the things you don't need in that huge bag. 

Basic Bag: H&M Handbag ($50)

Mini Bag: Proenza Schouler PS1 Tiny Shoulder Bag ($1,595)

Upgrade your black suede pumps for open-toe mules. Give your feet a break (and maybe a pedicure!) with this crisp white pair. Not only is the style extremely comfortable, but mules are the shoe to be seen in this spring. 

Basic Shoes: Forever 21 Pointed Faux Suede Pumps ($20)

Mules: Sergio Rossi Wooden Heel Peep Toe Leather Mules ($575)

Upgrade your staple pencil skirt for a pleated midi skirt. The best thing about this skirt is that it is appropriate in length and style for the office and looks great with a T-shirt and sneakers on the weekend. 

Basic Skirt: Diane Von Furstenberg High Waist Pencil Skirt ($292)

Pleated Midi Skirt: Topshop Jersey Pleated Midi Skirt ($60)

Upgrade your wool blazer for one with a lightweight printed material. No one ever said your blazer had to be plain. Let the season inspire you with its warmer weather and blooming flowers.

Basic Blazer: Stella McCartney Ingrid Wool Blazer ($1,320)

Printed Blazer: Zara Long Printed Jacket ($130)
