It's spring! Our shoulders, toes, and necklines are finally seeing the light of day as we shed heavier layers. When it comes to a seasonal wardrobe switch-up, we love doing the most, in a good way. That means going full-on cheerful in lighter attire — both in a literal and color palette sense. And for us, joyfulness and confidence go hand in hand, so we're kicking the season off with some big boss energy in the form of power suiting. Think of pretty pastel colors like mint green and airy linen fabrics in classic colors and prints, like stripes and shades of beige (not drab in our book!).

Don't worry — these outfits are anything but stiff and dull. This take on tailoring is all about a modern twist, be it a casual sneaker and crop top beneath a blazer for a weekend event or strappy kitten heels and polished jewelry for the office. Think even further out of the box by ditching the blazer altogether, and opt for colorful trousers paired with a tonal oversized button-down shirt (go for the French half-tuck for an even ~cooler~ take). Options are endless! But for now, ease into the look with three of our favorite spring power-suiting looks ahead.

Tonal Tailoring

Tonal Tailoring

You can totally get the power suit vibe without a blazer in the mix. Start with these Old Navy Extra High-Waisted Pleated Taylor Wide-Leg Trouser Suit Pants ($55), then pair this tonal Old Navy Oversized Shirt ($37) — yes, monochromatic! Complete the look with a chunky chain-link necklace, like this Jenny Bird Rodin Chain ($200) and heels like this pair of Reformation Enya Wedge Sandals ($278) — yep, wedges are back!
