Just because we were obsessed with certain trends last Spring — off-the-shoulder tops, white blouses, and slitted dresses — doesn't mean we have to abandon them. While 2015 invited bohemian twists on classic silhouettes, 2016 brings fresh updates. Button-downs are getting a bit more structure, and the ensembles feel more modern and minimalistic.

Hitting the refresh button works well when we're introducing personalized pieces into our wardrobes in the form of embroidered denim shorts and furry statement shoes. Read on to find 13 looks we loved rocking last year and learn how to make them feel new and now. Then, shop for the items you need to make the transition.
