Continuing our 2 week series highlighting the StyleBakery editors’ Top 10 must-buys for spring. Check back daily for a new Top 10 list filled with the hottest clothing and accessories to update your wardrobe this season.


Peony Print Maxi

If I could conjure up a dress that screams “Spring has sprung” this floral maxi dress is louder than a bullhorn!

$140 at armaniexchange.com


Watercolored Corsage Kimono Dress

This dress will look lovely on its own, or you can pair it with white jeans and heels to show off this pretty, floral flock!

$228 at maxstudio.com


Colorblock Ruffle Dress

Michelle Obama signed up to be First Lady, but little did she know her smart, tailored looks would anoint her a fashion icon we admire. At $88, this ruffle, sleeveless dress is perfect for a spring daytime wedding or graduation.

$88 at urbanoutfitters.com


Lucky Brand Boyfriend Jeans

If you need a break from the “skinny jean” look this spring, boyfriend denim is the ticket. Kate Walsh and Katie Holmes are fans. Pair these jeans with a blazer or bright colored sweater and you’re good to go.

$129 at luckybrandjeans.com


Molten Metallic Tank

Reinventing a spring basic with a sexy sheen that works with jeans, skirts or suits. If you’re feeling bold wear this tank with sweats too.

$62 at jcrew.com


Santa Cruz River Tunic

If spring inspires you to release your inner gypsy, bohemian hippy chic spirit, this top will make your outside look equally groovy.

$98 at freepeople.com


Faux-Patent Thong Sandals

Adding in at least one element of metallic will keep you looking seasonally current and these sandals are perfect if you just want a touch of gold, silver or pewter. And you can’t beat the price!

Snake Flat Clutch

This clutch is fierce, so if you purchase it or one like it…enjoy it. I have been taking mine to the post office, to work, to lunch and of course, on dates. It makes me schlep less stuff and, as a result, my shoulders and back aren’t as tight!

$150 at bananarepublic.com


Report Signature Shoes Perrin Open Toe Banded Pumps

Neon is so “in your face”, but in this case, it’s pretty fabulous down south on your feet.

$190 at shopbop.com


Metallic Plaid Square Scarf

A colorful scarf is an easy way to add flare to jeans, slacks or a shift dress this spring. (Note: We had to try 3 scarves on 3 different sites to find one that didn’t sell out in a day. Translation: this is the statement piece for Spring and Summer!)
