Spring hasn't officially sprung, but check the contents of any industry insider's shopping cart, and you'll feel quite the opposite. When you work in the fashion industry—whether you're a stylist, influencer, or editor—a seasonal shift doesn't just mean you can shed those layers and actually enjoy the outdoors. Instead, it equates to an entire wardrobe transformation, and if you ask the ladies ahead, it's one they look forward to for months on end. In order to get a solid pulse on what these sartorial professionals will be buying and wearing come spring, we asked them what their ideal spring clothing capsule wardrobe is and why.
Ahead, discover the spring pieces your wardrobe is missing, according to the wish lists of some of the industry's coolest influencers, editors, and stylists. From white cowboy boots to gingham dresses, we have a feeling you'll be walking away with full carts and you won't even feel guilty about it. Not to stress you out, but each of their commentaries really does encourage quite a lot of shopping, so we hope you're ready.
"The beachy, tie-dye trend is a huge one for spring, but I'm not one to rock crochet or a tie-dye dress IRL. I am one for a colorful accessory, and this little Prada does the trick by tying in the trend but also staying really wearable for seasons to come."
"There is a huge divide on jumpsuits that comes down to women who will wear them and women who won't. I've always been on the won't side of things—until I saw this Sézane boilersuit in de rigueur nude. I love the idea of wearing it with the sleeves rolled up (and even the cuffs) and some high-heel mules. Easy (lazy even) but chic."
"After years of dainty day jewelry, I'm really excited to see day-to-day pieces become a bit more substantial. My Meira T pinky signet ring has a charming starburst and little diamond for sparkle and is the perfect addition to my spring/summer rotation. It already fits in perfectly with my smaller pieces."
"I've been lusting after these mules since I first saw them. They are easy to wear, sturdy, straight out of the '90s, and dare I say comfortable? The unusual but beautiful cornflower blue and orange print is just a bonus!"
