As the snow begins to melt and the temperatures rise, fashionistas everywhere start shedding their winter layers in favor for more daring, skin baring frocks. We’ve had these winter months to hold up in cozy cafes, visit our favorite [ski destinations] (

After its debut last September, we discovered the Spring season’s [desire for escapism] (
https://www.wmagazine.com/gallery/spring-2019-fashion-trends) and how within this overarching theme, each girl can find their own get-a-way both in mind and body. Of the key sub categories we found that neon, animal print, power suiting, and the-short-as-the-new-skirt, to be some of the biggest breakout stars. Below, find 10 curated outfits that we feel epitomize the summoning of the Spring season and the trends that we want to see you style.
