Spring is here, and we're desperate to add fun colorful pieces to our wardrobes! It's tough to know which pieces to invest in, and what you'll still want to wear through summer. Don't worry, we've done all  the hard work; here are five must-have spring/summer staples to update your wardrobe in a flash. These are pieces that you can mix with your own wardrobe, wear from work to an evening soiree, and even dress up for a summer wedding or lunch. 

5 spring essentials

The Dress: This season is all about color! You can throw a trench over this scarlet Zara shift dress ($79.90) on breezier days, or pair it with a bold necklace and high heels on a balmy summer night.

The Shorts: A pair of tailored shorts are the perfect spring staple. These J. Crew shorts ($98) are dressy enough to wear to work, but can be paired with a tank top on those hot summer days for an easy weekend outfit.

The Floaty Shirt: A lightweight top is key for spring; wear this Topshop blouse ($70) with shorts, a summer skirt, or pair of pants. With the sleeves rolled up and collar open, it invokes a classic, laid back summer look. Pair it with a pencil skirt and high heels at night!

The Espadrilles: A chic pair of espadrilles, like this Aldo Dyle pair ($100), is always great for summer and spring. Worn with shorts, cropped trousers, a dress, or rolled up jeans, the right pair always looks fabulous. A must for every wardrobe.

The Sunglasses: You can't go wrong with Ray-Ban's Original Wayfarer ($139). Loved by celebrities and trendsetters alike, these sunglasses look chic in any color, and are a great summer staple.
