Spring is officially almost here, and chances are that figuring out the trends you should invest in probably isn't one of your top priorities—that's what we're here for. Instead of giving you an overwhelming laundry list of items you "need," we decided to narrow it down to a few key pieces you should buy to start a brand-new (and totally chic) spring wardrobe. The goal here is to simplify and organize the crazy world of trends and seasons into one consolidated little package so you don't end up spending too much time or money on things you don't need.
In addition to shopping out variations of the key players every fashion girl's wardrobe should have this spring, we have also given you examples of how to wear some of these trends, thanks to recent street style moments. Now, this isn't to say we are disregarding other seasonal styles, but instead, we are giving you a jumping off point that will set the rest of your purchases up for success. Are you ready to buy your most stylish spring wardrobe yet?

Chances are you probably already have a drawer full of graphic T-shirts. Chances also are that you often neglect them due to the longevity they have had in your closet. This season, we recommend investing in at least one new graphic tee that makes you happy. Since they are great for layering, dressing up or down, and are just plain cool, I think you can justify adding one more to your collection.
We know what you're thinking—pink? Really? Yes, really. Not only is this trend just plain exciting, but its vibrant hue also brings new life to your wardrobe no matter what variation you choose to purchase. From cropped trousers to ruffled shirts, we guarantee you'll wear this trend more often than you think.
In general, checks are a huge trend for spring, but it's these plaid blazers that we are particularly fond of. The pattern makes elevating a pair of jeans and a tee so simple, and it is versatile enough to take you from the office to happy hour. A trend that malleable is one we can easily get on board with.
This trend has to be one of our all-time favorites, no matter what the season. However, spring seems like the perfect time to invest in one if you haven't yet. Again, this shirt is perfect for the office, brunch, and even for running errands. It will look amazing paired with a checked blazer or with a pair of bright pink pants.
Floral dresses are flirty, fun, and have received a cool-girl edge as of late. Street style stars are wearing theirs with a graphic tee layered underneath, with blazers, costume-inspired jewelry, or even a pair of chunky boots. Whichever way you choose to wear yours, you have to admit that it wouldn't be spring without a fresh floral dress.
