"I was very inspired by the western trend, which took over the European Fall runways and plan to incorporate a modern cowboy boot into my rotation ASAP. I love that Vetements collaborated with iconic cowboy boot brand Lucchese to create these cool ankle boots. I'll pair them with distressed, slightly cropped flared jeans by my latest denim obsession, Moussy, layered over a pretty flowy patterned Marni dress and top it all off with a fun shady hat by Lola hats and some punky silver hoops from Meadowlark." — Rachael Wang
Update your standard hoops with this version.
A perfect hat to carry you through summer.
"I'm also obsessed with the new lace Brother Vellies bootie, which I will pair with some light-wash 501 Skinny Levi's, a vintage-y Jacquemus blouse, a cool earthy tote by Simon Miller, and modern Agmes jewelry." — Rachael Wang
"I love how relaxed and easy this look is. It has the benefit of layers, which during spring, when you can't predict the weather, is a massive bonus, and it's a fun way to 'dress down' metallic booties. Plus cropped flared jeans and booties are one of my favorite trends of the moment. On my clients, I'd probably pair these jeans with a higher bootie, but for running around during the day, a lower bootie can work just as well." — Anita Patrickson
The perfect way to tap in to the metallic trend.
This jacket is tailored for a boyfriend fit.
"The sock bootie has become quite the force to be reckoned with this spring. They look their best when paired with cropped, frayed denim, like this black pair from Mango. You can lighten the look with simple jewelry, a white handbag, and an off-the-shoulder top that shows just the right amount of skin for spring." — Taylor Hicks
We love this star-etched ring.
If you only buy one thing this season, make it this bag.
"A major key to dressing for spring is light layering. Grab a great pair of medium-wash skinny jeans, like these from Reformation, and layer a thin, printed robe dress over them to create a gorgeous silhouette. This look requires a bootie that shows more ankle than usual, making these suede Derek Lam ones a must-have this season." — Taylor Hicks
This satin bag is also available in black and red.
These statement earrings will top off any brunch look.
A simple layering piece.
