1. Casual

The fun print takes center stage in this look. Subtle tan and gold extras like a leopard print belt, strappy ballet flats, and a braided bracelet bring out the orange tones in the dress.

Hive and Honey Braided Rope and Metal Bracelet

This bracelet is a great summer update to your everyday gold bangles. We love the textural combo of the mixed rope and metal.

7 Hills Narrow Haircalf Belt

Swap out the belt that comes with the dress for this thin, leopard print one. Animal print can be worn as a neutral, so you'll find plenty of other occasions to add a pop of leopard to your outfit.

Revlon Orange Flip Lipstick

Play up the little bit of orange in the dress with a swipe of bright lipstick. Revlon's Orange Flip has a tinge of red and goes on slightly sheer, so you don't have to worry about looking like a circus clown in this flattering color.

ASOS Legend Ballet Flats

These strappy flats are a chic cross between a ballet flat and a sandal—perfect for hot summer days when you want a closed toe.

2. Boho

Channel your off-duty model style with a chic bleached denim vest, minimal accessories, and flat woven sandals. 

Proenza Schouler Denim Vest

After what seems like an eternal winter, some of us have a hard time abandoning our layers just like that. A sleeveless denim vest lets you add another piece without the bulkiness and unnecessary warmth of too many layers.

ASOS Decadent Jeweled Brooch

An intricate brooch (or two, or three) adds a big dose of personality to ubiquitous, simple pieces like denim jackets, spring scarves, and solid tote bags.

ASOS Etched Cuff Bracelet

Add a little toughness to your look with a wide, dark grey cuff bracelet. The etched gold design keeps it fashionable.

Ecote Lana Woven Thong Sandal

These black woven sandals will go with everything this spring. The sleek design and short ankle wrap let them stand apart from more basic black sandals.

3. Professional

A polished, professional look doesn't have to be boring. A crisp blazer, bold tote, and candy-color watch liven up this sensible outfit.

ASOS Cropped Soft Blazer

This cropped blazer is the ideal length to go with dresses, skirts, and cute high-waisted shorts. And the light blush color is so fresh for spring.

Kate Spade Cooper Strap Watch

Add some color to your arm candy with this turquoise and gold watch.

Matt & Nat Elba Tote Bag

Out with the tired black bag and in with this blue faux leather tote. It will take you everywhere from the airport to the office to the pool this season.

Banana Republic Garrah Pump

Black pumps are one of those things you're always looking for the perfect version of. Not too tall, not too pointy, and so on. This pair is just right.

4. Edgy

Take your bright maxi dress for an edgy spin with a black leather jacket, studded clutch, and strappy wedges. This look is perfect for taking maxi dresses into the fall.

ASOS Leather-Look Collarless Quilted Biker Jacket

Quilted texture gives this faux leather jacket a high-end appearance. We love that the bracelet-length sleeves let you show off your fabulous jewelry.

Banana Republic Cashmere Scarf

Summery yellow adds a cheery pop of color to any outfit. Loop it a couple of times, or fasten with a cute pin to wear it as an infinity scarf.

River Island Black Geometric Clutch

A good black clutch will go a long way in any wardrobe. This one has sleek geometric and metal detail.

Steve Madden Realdeal Wedges

These strappy black wedges are simple and sexy. The platform-less shape is much more modern, and will keep you from teetering around all night.
