Spring is finally in full swing here in New York City. This last winter felt longer than most, and while I love a good cashmere sweater and boots just as much as the next person, I'm officially over dressing for winter. To get out of my winter fashion slump, I have been searching for great spring outfit inspiration. This spring, I want to be intentional about my shopping and styling. No more off-the-wall trendy pieces that I'll look back on and cringe at. This season, it's all about finding versatile pieces that fit well and feel like me. After lots of browsing, from TikTok to Instagram to my fellow Who What Wear editors' stories, I found seven looks that are so easy yet stylish and meet all my criteria. I found everything from looks that are perfect for a first date with my potential new spring fling to vacation outfits you'll love so much that you'll book a trip just to wear them.

Keep scrolling to see which outfits made the cut.

1. Midi Skirt + T-Shirt + Button-Down

This is the season of the midi skirt. Whether you're opting for a denim option or a classic black skirt like the one above, adding a T-shirt and button-down just gives the whole look a relaxed yet polished Parisian feel. I'd opt for a pair of ballet flats and oval sunnies to finish the look.

2. Cardigan + Leather Belt + White Pants

This is my go-to outfit combination for those spring nights that aren't that cold but still have a slight chill. The real strong selling point of this look is the colors. The bold red cardigan paired with crisp white pants takes this look to the next level.

3. Bodysuit + Column Skirt + Heeled Sandal

This look, to me, is the ultimate low-key yet polished look. This is the type of look I reach for when I'm planning on meeting someone for coffee or popping into a showroom or store for a meeting before heading to a café to work for the day.

4. Capri Pants + Button-Down Shirt + Mules

Capris are back for spring and summer, and I, for one, am thrilled. How chic is this denim-and-poplin-shirt take?

5. Blazer + Straight-Leg Denim + Heeled Sandals

The low-key elevated way to wear Bermuda shorts. I'm obsessed.

7. Polka-Dot Dress + Ballet Flats

I don't know about you, but I am loving polka dots for spring and summer. Just add ballet flats and oval sunglasses.
