  • Lightweight Scarf


    A lightweight scarf can act as a wrap if you're cold, a skirt if it's hot, or a do-rag if the humidity just ain't cooperating. Do not underestimate the importance of this item.

  • Jean Jacket

    Jean jackets are great. They provide just the right amount of warmth, and just the right amount of "cool". Throw them over a tank or layer with a sweater -- this garment was made for spring.

  • Oversized Layering Piece



    Find an old boyfriend's sweater or buy a size up -- an oversized layering piece is great for all seasons, especially spring.

  • Your Favorite White T



    I don't think I have to tell you why you need to bring your favorite white t-shirt, do I? Didn't think so. Pack it. It'll go with everything.

  • Colored Jeans



    You're definitely going to bring jeans, so why not bring a pair with some personality? Colored jeans can be found almost anywhere these days, so snag a pair and be on your way.

  • Spring Dress


    Find a great springy dress and don't let it go. Wear with tights and a jean jacket if it's chilly or pair with sandals if it's warm. A dress like this can take you miles.

  • Versatile Shoes



    Comfy, versatile shoes that can handle rain or shine are a certain key to springtime weather success.

  • Umbrella


    Don't forget an umbrella. Just! Don't.
