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.


Merino flutter-trim tunic

The feathery trim lends this otherwise ordinary tunic a softer, springier touch.

$49.95 (sale) at jcrew.com


Nanette Lepore Honeysuckle Skirt

Sexy enough to transition into evening, but casual enough for daytime. Plus, this is one of the few skirts that has a slit, which I love.

$275 at shopbop.com


Charles by Charles David Chill

My GNO (girls’ night out) shoe of choice. The slender heel looks death-defying but is surprisingly danceable.

$135 at zappos.com


Peace Cuff

Neither too feminine nor too tough, this antique bronze cuff puts the finishing touch on a tank-and-jeans ensemble.

$38 at luckybrand.com


Train Hopper Satchel

This canvas tote doubles as a beach bag come summertime. Sunglasses. Check. Flip flops? Check. SPF 50? Check!!!

$98 at freepeople.com


OluKai ‘Lani’ Flip Flop

Make one smart flip-flop investment when the weather heats up. This is my comfort-minded pick, crafted from rich suede.

$94.95 at nordstrom.com


byCORPUS Strapless Denim Dress

I’ll go through at least three bottles of self-tanner before I can slip into this super slim-fitting tube dress. A girl can never have too much denim.

$68 at urbanoutfitters.com


Marc by Marc Jacobs Medium Square Sunglasses

The details at the temple make this pair completely crave-worthy. I get dibs on the tortoise frames.

$98 at saks.com


So Low “Neon Tattoo” Rib Tank Top

This pretty pink tank looks flattering on fair skin and the straps are thick enough so that your bra doesn’t play peek-a-boo.

$42 at bloomingdales.com


Radio Fiji Santorini Sun Deck Mila Bandeau Top & Secret Swimsuit Bottom

A new bikini is an excuse to take an exotic beach vacation, no? Remove the strap from the bandeau to keep tan lines at bay.

$86 (total for top and bottom) at macys.com
