Spring is on its way 🙌 and you know what that means: Time to do some anticipatory closet cleaning to make room for new finds. This season, it's all about versatile pieces that have a little *something* to set them apart. Here, 10 items that are on our list of must-buys, from feminine, floral tops to glistening booties.

Pitch the toe-pinching heels in favor of stylish flats that go the distance. Off-white straps with neutral soles are the epitome of laid-back warm-weather style.

In need of the ultimate vacay tote? The striped lining of this straw bag gives it a dose of polish.

The term "peasant skirt" may sound dated, but this one sure isn't. A slightly high-low hemline keeps it interesting; wear it with booties during transitional weather and open-toed sandals when things really heat up.

4. The Extra Accessory

Gold chain detailing lends a mixed-metal chicness to these low-heeled ankle boots. Pop them on to make your trusty jeans and a tee look startlingly new.

5. The Not-So-Basic T-Shirt

The white tee comes in a billion iterations, but we'd argue that none are more useful than one that hits just above the hips and gathers at the front. Pair it with ripped jeans and flat slides.

Style & Co twist-front t-shirt, $35


6. The Classic Watch

Michael Kors is king of the versatile watch—wear this one with jeans and a tee, or dress it up for cocktail hour just the same. Sparkling stones will make you feel *100* no matter what.

Meet the Boho cousin of the peplum top. Thanks to layered lace and a flattering waist tie, this flirty top is flowing and fun and perfect with white jeans.

We know, we know—florals aren't entirely groundbreaking for spring. But when dotted atop muted stripes and matched with flutter detailing, they make this shirt bloom.

9. The Cool Shades

From a distance they make look like regular aviators, but 8 distinct edges on each lens make these Ray Bans feel far from ordinary.

10. The Flattering Dress

A body-skimming t-shirt dress should be in every woman's closet, period, but laces on this give it an edge. Reach for it as a poolside cover-up, a one-piece brunch look or an athleisure-inspired standby for whizzing through errands when worn with low-top sneaks.
