The official first day of spring is March 19, which can only mean one thing: It's time to whip your wardrobe into shape. Temperatures will finally warm up enough to allow you to peel off those bulky layers and slip into separates that feel fresh and exciting. Once you've gone through the song and dance of tucking away your wintry pieces and hanging your spring staples in their place, you might notice a few holes in your closet. This is pretty normal. After a few years, our clothing and accessories endure enough wear that it's time to replace them, and if you've found yourself in a similar place, then the roundup below should pique your interest.
Though it's hard to narrow down spring's most important trends to three items, we did our best. Ahead, see our list of three versatile-yet-exciting trends that have the power to take an outfit to the next level. You won't find any loud, flashy trends here—just stylish, polished items that can easily blend in with your existing wardrobe. Happy spring-cleaning!
If there's one jewelry trend that's taken the fashion set by storm as of late, it's chunky chain jewelry. Architectural earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets crafted in thicker silhouettes are decidedly the bauble worth investing in right now, and because they're delightfully versatile, you can keep wearing them for years to come.

Once temperatures warm up a bit, you'll feel relieved to shed your winter coat. But what will take its place? Spring outerwear, of course! There isn't just one jacket to try, though. Everything from vegan leather to belted silhouettes all the way to reworked denim will have a moment in the months to come, and now's the time to choose which kind of spring outerwear goes best with your existing wardrobe.
It's been a great past few months for the cardigan, and for the upcoming spring season, things are bound to blow up. Swap out your turtlenecks for a cutesy cardigan with delicate embellishments and soft textures.
