14 More Things Your Wardrobe Needs for Spring

The Colors of the Rainbow

Don't be intimidated by bright hues like yellow, green, red and blue this spring. Mix and match them (to a point -- don't go too crazy now) or wear the bold colors with this season's tried-and-true neutrals.

Unconventional Trenches

Your classic trench coat will never go out of style, but a new trench trend is entering the mix this spring. Not only will they come in baby-doll and cropped versions, you can also wear them as dresses.

Envelope Bags

Although you can't fit too much into an envelope bag, they'll be a go-to carrier this season. Perhaps this is your cue to purge your purse? That wouldn't be such a bad idea!

Wide-Leg Trousers

With the flashback of '70s style this spring, don't forget to get yourself a pair of wide-leg pants. Both denim and trousers will be "in" this season.

Super Stripes

Although stripes don't work for everyone, you can work the trend into your wardrobe multiple ways this season. Try a maxi dress, a purse, even shoes! Which way works best on you?

Snazzy Sweats

We've showed you how to dress up a $7-pair of sweatpants... (How's that going, by the way?) Now, we're suggesting you add "dressy" sweats to your spring wardrobe. They're snazzy and with the right jewelry and footwear, can look so on trend.

Antique Accessories

Inherited grandma's hand-me-downs? Scour vintage shops like a champ? Or, just have an affinity for all things old? You're lucky -- vintage jewelry is still hot this season. From the '20s to the '70s, incorporate something old or borrowed into your wardrobe this season. And if you don't have anything from the past, not to worry -- there are antique-inspired finds out there, too.

Crop Tops

Wear a cute crop with drawstring trousers, cropped khakis or this season's "it" denim. Dress it up with a pair of pumps and the right accessories, or keep it casual with flats and a laidback attitude.

Chic Capris

They're not the sloppy capris our lazy selves have grown to love (in secret). These cropped trousers are more chic than what we've seen. Even better, they're just as comfy! You'll be proud to sport these to the office.

Non-Black Blazers

Store your black boyfriend blazers and tuxedo jackets. This spring, blazers have color! Try a pastel pink, baby blue or navy with shorts or a mini skirt. If the jacket has a pattern, even better!

Whimsical Whites

Laces, bows and eyelets in basic white are closet staples this season. As long as they're girly and frilly -- not casual or plain -- you'll be in this spring.
