For many of us, spring is a time to refresh our wardrobes, whether that means weeding out what no longer feels relevant or testing out a new, groundbreaking trend. The spring 2023 runways brought plenty of inspiration, from sheer fabrics at Tory Burch to fringe decals at Michael Kors. And the street style looks brought each spring trend to life, showing us how to wear extreme cutouts, cardigans, and miniskirts for every day. In the case of our editors, the inclination to add more color this season is undeniable.

Going for bold, bright colors, Senior Fashion Director Jessica Andrews is embracing vibrant pieces, from a two-toned fringe Petit Kouraj bag to a graphic-print BruceGlen slip. Breaking News Editor Yerin Kim likes the appeal of pastels in the form of New Balance's Calia 327 sneaker and Love, Bonito's ribbon-finished romper. These softer tones may be less eye-catching, but they have just as much of an impact when you mix them with versatile closet staples. Meanwhile, Senior Fashion Editor Sarah Wasilak is thinking a lot about mismatched jewelry for spring 2023, along with unexpected pieces that showcase her personality (take the ombrΓ© Louis Vuitton pouch, for example, which has an ethereal fade that reminds her of waves slowly rippling away from the shoreline).

Andrews and Wasilak are also both itching to try the naked-dress trend. Andrews has her eyes set on a mulberry lace maxi from Intimately, clad with a tiered skirt and thigh-high slit. Wasilak is partial to Onarin's Ms. Heart bustier and matching fishtail skirt, a combination she found circulating on Instagram that she plans to wear for her birthday weekend in May.

Ahead, see which looks the POPSUGAR Fashion editors are committing to once the temperature warms and the weather isn't so unpredictable.

Jessica Andrews, Senior Fashion Director

"My style for spring borrows from quite a few decades. I always look to the '70s and '90s for daytime glamour: think breezy maxis for vacation or simple slip dresses that command attention. But when it's time to step out, I'm all about 2000s style: slinky metallic frocks, platform sandals, and lots of Barbiecore pink. Luckily, there are so many trends to draw from this season to fit my personal sense of style, from sheer dresses to platforms."

Petit Kouraj Mini Fringe Top Handle Bag

Petit Kouraj Mini Fringe Top Handle Bag ($375)

"I'm such a big Petit Kouraj fan because crochet and bright hues just scream spring to me. This bag is a perfect addition to your warm-weather wardrobe, whether you style it with a monochrome look or add it to neutrals for a pop of color." β€” JA

Intimately Keep Me Up Maxi

Intimately Keep Me Up Maxi ($128)

"The sheer trend is one of my favorites to embrace every spring, and this lacy slip dress is one of the best iterations of the look. I'll wear this with a bra top and bike shorts underneath or get creative and layer it over a tank top and jeans." β€” JA

BClawed Hotline Nails

BClawed Hotline Nails ($21 and up)

"Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande: celebrities are obsessed with press-on nails, and I don't blame them. They're easy and safe to apply, and you can experiment with so many colors and trends. Right now, I'm partial to this nail art for spring: it's clean, it's chic, and it goes with every colorful outfit in my closet." β€” JA

Chanel Wayfarer Sunglasses

Chanel Wayfarer Sunglasses ($446, originally $548)

"I think of myself as an avid online shopper, and one thing I've really benefited from is researching when certain retailers have online sales. Italist offers discounts at the beginning of each season, so right now, you can get 45 percent off designer finds from spring 2023. I'm so in love with these Chanel sunglasses I bought from there: sleek black shades with a pearl, floral, and logo-heart design on the arms.

Another tip to avoid the fitting and returns struggle when shopping online is to look for pieces that don't rely so much on sizing. For example, I don't have to worry about sending these Chanel sunglasses back to Italist because they will be a sure fit. The site has plenty of size-agnostic accessories on sale, just like these β€” and even a few that are hard to find online. I'm making these my signature wear-with-everything shades this summer." β€” JA

BruceGlen Psych Check Silk Slip Dress

BruceGlen Psych Check Silk Slip Dress ($325)

"A slip dress will always be a staple in my spring wardrobe β€” and the melange of colors and prints makes this design feel like a work of art. I'd grab a cream bag and clutch to break up the color and head right out the door." β€” JA

Susan Alexandra Pearly Tiny Joys Necklace

Susan Alexandra Pearly Tiny Joys Necklace ($111)

"Despite rumblings of a no-necklace trend, I'm all about the jewelry category, whether we're talking nameplates or pearls. This Susan Alexandra necklace is one of my favorites because you can personalize the charms to reflect your interests.

The version I'm currently wearing is from the brand's collab with Warby Parker celebrating the Warby Parker Museum of the Blue-Footed Booby store that just opened on 80th and Columbus in New York City. I love it because β€” alongside Warby Parker's longtime mascot, the blue-footed booby β€” it features quintessential New York charms like an apple and a pretzel. It feels like I'm carrying a piece of NYC with me, wherever I go." β€” JA

Liv Streetwear The Replay

Liv Streetwear The Replay ($65)

"One of my favorite things about spring is the return of the jacket. Jackets add a fun layering opportunity to your look, and I'm in love with this varsity jacket by Liv Streetwear. I always like to create contrasts when styling, so I'd pair this with a slinky white slip dress to mix things up." β€” JA

Find Me Now Aster Knit Cardigan

Find Me Now Aster Knit Cardigan ($125)

"Cardigans aren't exclusive to the 2000s, but in my opinion, no decade approached them better. In the noughties, designers reimagined the knitwear staple with more allure than it ever had before. The squiggle design and color combo really make this style stand out. I'll layer it over dresses and pair it with jeans, leaving the last few buttons undone." β€” JA

Sarah Wasilak, Senior Fashion Editor

"Just like in all other months, my spring wardrobe is curated in an effort to reflect my quirky personality. I love searching for pieces that feel sightly off, like mismatched earrings and cutout dresses with sheer elements you weren't expecting. This season, I'm trying to think broadly when it comes to investing in products. Lingerie, jewelry, and classic silhouettes like a blazer dress are pieces that never go out of style."

Lapointe Cutout Tank and Slouchy Pant

Lapointe Cashmere Silk Cutout Tank ($650) and Lapointe Stretch Cotton Twill Slouchy Pant ($490)

"When it comes to quality spring suiting, I think of Lapointe immediately, not just because of the vibrant pastel colorways but also because of the label's wide and inventive interpretation of the co-ord set. I'm a big fan of both the baggy-denim trend and cutouts, so these aloe-toned pieces paired together make for my ideal look for the warmer weather. I'll either add a sharp knife boot in white leather or a playful kitten heel." β€” SW

Civetta Mismatch Star and Moon Earrings

Civetta Mismatch Star and Moon Earrings 14K Goldfill Hoops ($75, originally $99)

"I tend to flirt even more heavily with kitschy jewelry come spring, and I love the idea of mismatched earrings to subtly suggest my personality quirks. I already own the blue opal choker from Civetta, and it's one of my best-kept accessories to date β€” all due to the quality. The combination of this crescent moon and green onyx star is said to bring good luck, so I'll be coordinating these hoops with many looks from a.m. to p.m." β€” SW

H&M Linen-Blend Vest and Wide-Leg Utility Pants

H&M Linen-Blend Vest ($18) and H&M Wide-Leg Utility Pants ($60)

"Featured in H&M's Isla Hennes Spring 2023 campaign is a cargo set so luxe-looking an on-point with my style, I know I'll never look back. Consisting of a sleeveless vest and relaxed, wide-leg cargo pants, I can't wait to wear the exact look with platform sandals and accessories that pop all summer long." β€” SW

Louis Vuitton Monogram Mahina Scala Mini Pouch

Louis Vuitton Monogram Mahina Scala Mini Pouch ($99 via Vivrelle Classique Membership)

"To me, this Louis Vuitton pouch is full of personality and packs a punch. There's nothing like updating your wardrobe with a pop of color come spring, and Vivrelle offering an affordable option for swapping out your designer bag seasonally is a no-brainer. I have yet to invest in an LV item, so testing out the brand with this ombrΓ© statement piece feels like a natural step in that direction." β€” SW

Ama Nwoke Boss Move Blazer

Ama Nwoke Boss Move Slim Fit Blazer ($310)

"To coordinate with my Louis Vuitton pouch, a look in the perfect periwinkle shade feels right on point for a wardrobe upgrade this spring. I have a newfound obsession with the blazer minidress silhouette, especially when teamed with over-the-knee boots or platform shoes to give it a casual '90s spin." β€” SW

Mush Studios The Dune Rug

Mush Studios The Dune Rug ($310)

"I'm moving to a new apartment this April and I plan to update my living room decor with some funky pieces to complement my live-edge wood table, which I like to keep as the focal point. This area rug gives off the illusion of fluid motion, and in blue, reminds me of water. That's perfect, since I also have a giant portrait of Riomaggiore beach framed on the wall." β€” SW

Marks & Spencer Boutique x Damaris Evaline Lingerie Set

Marks & Spencer Boutique x Damaris Evaline Push-Up Balcony Bra ($42) and Marks & Spencer Boutique x Damaris Evaline High-Waisted Brazilian Knickers ($18)

"I absolutely love collecting feel-good lingerie that reflects the holiday, season, or month of the year. The delicate yellow embroideries on this set are right on point for spring, and the cutout floret at the back of the mesh panty brings the moment full circle. I also love a high-waisted bottom and look for them often for their leg-lengthening properties." β€” SW

Redken Blondage High Bright Pre-Shampoo Treatment

Redken Blondage High Bright Pre-Shampoo Treatment ($28)

"I like to keep my hair a high and bright shade of blond from spring through summer, which does mean it's time to invest in products for upkeep. Redken offers some of the best maintenance solutions for weeks in between salon visits, and starting with this pre-conditioning spray will help amplify my lighter pieces and minimize the look of brassiness." β€” SW

Princess Polly Green Kenzie Minidress

Princess Polly Green Kenzie Minidress ($68)

"I love the Y2K influence behind this green satin slip with embroideries around the balconette. I'll either style it with my white cowboy boots or with socks and platform loafers, to give it a '90s twist." β€” SW

ALV Jewels Dani Chain Stud Connector

ALV Jewels Dani Chain Stud Connector ($50)

"I have two piercings on my left lobe, and I'm always looking for something interesting to highlight them. This connector is the perfect way to bring attention to the area. It's also delicate and lightweight, so it's something I can wear every day." β€” SW

There Was One Scoop-Back Sports Bra

There Was One Scoop-Back Sports Bra ($61)

"There Was One has just introduced a new activewear category to Farfetch, and I'm a big fan of the color combinations and luxurious fits. I plan to invest in the matching bike shorts as soon as they hit the site, as I truthfully feel like my workouts are improved when I love what I'm wearing. The energy just fuels me." β€” SW

Onarin Ms. Heart Bustier and Fishtail Maxi Skirt

Onarin Ms. Heart Bustier ($329) and Onarin Classic Fishtail Maxi Skirt ($229)

"As early as March, I'm already starting to plan my birthday look β€” which isn't until May. But I'm daring myself to try the 'naked' trend this year, as I've met a milestone: it's already been one whole trip around the sun in my 30s. I'm absolutely inspired by recent celebrity looks such as Florence Pugh's see-through Valentino skirt and Hailey Bieber's sheer Mirror Palais slip, so I'm taking on this set with a vengeance. I plan to dance the night away in it β€” and the Stolen Stores team makes it easy by offering made-to-measure sizing that only takes seven to 14 days, so I can ensure the right length for the skirt." β€” SW

Yerin Kim, Breaking News Editor

"After a cold, dark winter in New York, I'm really excited to experiment this spring β€” with colors, patterns, and silhouettes. From cutesy ribbon details to pops of bright colors, I definitely want to take a more fun approach to dressing and styling this season. With that said, I'm also mindful of shopping both smartly and consciously, so I'm looking for standout, wearable pieces to add to and elevate my existing wardrobe."

Love, Bonito Alexandria Straight Neck Ribbon Tie Romper

Love, Bonito Alexandria Straight Neck Ribbon Tie Romper ($39)

"I was thrilled to see the bow trend carry into this spring, and this wearable style from Love, Bonito is so adorable. Designed in Singapore, the popular direct-to-consumer womenswear label in Southeast Asia is new to the US. The romper is flattering and comfortable and, most importantly, comes with pockets." β€” YK

Frances Valentine Tinsley Hobo Naplak Green

Frances Valentine Tinsley Hobo Naplak Green ($498)

"I'm a big minibag girl, and since nothing says spring like bright colors, it's no surprise this vibrant green design from Frances Valentine recently caught my eye. While the glossy purse is perfect for springtime, it's also versatile enough for year-round wear." β€” YK

New Balance Calia Women's 327 Shoes

New Balance Calia Women's 327 Shoes ($105)

"I own several pairs of New Balance 327 sneakers, so I can vouch for both the shoe's comfort and versatility. This new gray-gold colorway from the brand's Calia collaboration will pair perfectly with any dress, jean, or skirt this season." β€” YK

Find Me Now Hunter Cargo Button Down and Basketball Shorts

Find Me Now Hunter Cargo Button Down ($141) and Find Me Now Hunter Cargo Basketball Shorts ($117)

"I can't get enough of cargo lately, and I love this warm-weather take on the trend. Made out of the brand's lightweight nylon fabric, this button-down and basketball-short combo is breathable and ideal for transitional weather. I can easily style the chic pieces separately or dress them up and down with the right shoes and accessories." β€” YK
