    UPDATE: By now, your spring layers should be stored away at the back of your closet, making room for all your summer staples. We figured you might be looking for a little wardrobe inspo on this dreary Sunday, so we pulled this so-fun story out of the archives. This story was originally published on April 24.

And what better way to prove it than by rounding up 15 awesome printed alternatives to mix in with your old faithfuls?
