We know, we know — it's freezing out, and it seems a little crazy to be daydreaming about spring clothes. Just the thought of exposing our poor, pasty legs to a pretty wisp of a dress seems unfair, but that's not stopping us — fantasy-shopping the spring runways is one of our favorite winter pastimes. And judging by what we saw at Fashion Week, we'll have a lot to lust after when these pieces start hitting the shelves. To prep you for the warmer days ahead (and they are ahead, even if it doesn't feel like it, right now), we scoured the spring collections to find the most essential, must-try trends — seven, to be exact — and combined each one with first-rate advice on how to wear it. Click through to see our spring primer, and pick up some styling tips to put you ahead of the trend game.
