Spring For A Versatile Scarf
Your chambray shirt and jeans make up a dependable outfit year after year, and with a few small tweaks, you can keep up this look's winning streak. Try a new denim style (our fave this season is the cropped flare), and pair with a colorful, striped scarf and heels in a can't-miss shade of marigold. As for the chambray, upgrade to a crisp, light-blue shirt that ties at the waist for a feminine take on the basic button-up.

Lighten Your Load With A Half-Moon Bag
Ditch your heavy tote for a sleeker silhouette, such as a half-moon style. To contrast your recycled navy, suede skirt from the winter, go with tan and olive accessories that lighten the palette. Add a sultry floral print to top everything off, and don't forget to nix the tights and boots.

Update Your Gear
This is the perfect season to hit refresh, which includes switching up your everyday items for smarter, savvier pieces. Stash your winter brogues in favor of chunky, all-white soles and your black crossbody in exchange for a bag in a dusty pink hue. And never miss a notification (or a weather update!) with a Fossil Q Wearable, like this one in stainless steel.

Break Out Your Statement Sunnies
This spring, it's all about the retro shades. Opt for a pair in a neutral color combination that complements anything yet doesn't blend in too much. Pair them with a chambray jumpsuit, sandals with a patriotic tilt, and a bag in your favorite shade of bright for a throw-on-and-go ensemble that packs a punch.

Opt For A Season-Less Shoe
It's tempting to break out a sundress and sandals ASAP when temps start to rise. But at least try to ease into this tricky transitional time. Sturdy block-heeled mules keep the look from going too far into warm-weather territory, while a pastel handbag amplifies the moody, abstract florals of the dress.
