Now that spring’s most notable trends are dropping into stores and e-commerce sites daily, figuring out what you like can get overwhelming fast. If you’re at a loss for what to look for first, take a peek into the virtual shopping carts of Vogue staffers. From wanderlust-y tie-dyed T-shirts and strappy sandals to more practical, wear-with-everything trench coats, it’s safe to say we’re all excited for warmer days. More than one editor is eyeing a Paco Rabanne sarong; others are feeling wooden clogs; and we can all agree on the power of a great floral print (or three).

As for Spring’s most-wanted trend? The tried-and-true midi dress—this time with new tweaks, from candy-colored polka dots to mashed-up florals and ’80s-inspired puffed sleeves. A statement dress worn by itself—without a jacket or coat weighing you down!—is the ultimate sign that warm weather is finally here. Until that actually happens (we still have over a month of winter to go!), get a head start by shopping our editors’ picks below.

I can’t stop thinking about Dries Van Noten’s collaboration with the Verner Panton estate and how happy this squiggle denim jacket would make me. Way out of my budget, but probably totally worth it.

Not my most creative desire, but I’ve been itching to buy this Prada Resort look for months. I tragically splurged on the hat, just as early spring hit New York, but the little black turtleneck tee and brown chiffon maxi skirt would be perfect right about now (though I’d trade in the pumps for a good knee-high boot).

I recently moved into a new apartment, and the process of unpacking and reorganizing my closet made me realize that half of it is just dresses. They’re all I wear in the summer, but most of them are below-the-knee and flowy; I can’t remember the last time I showed my knees. Now that minidresses are creeping back into fashion, I’m searching for one that doesn’t feel too skimpy. Rhode’s Indian-printed mini comes with long balloon sleeves to balance out the hemline; that’s about as sexy as it gets for me! I’d wear it all season long, ideally with Emme Parsons’s perfect barely-there metallic gladiators and J. Hannah’s aquamarine hoops.

This spring, the only thing I am really excited to wear are the printed bottoms from Paco Rabanne’s Spring 2019 collection. I’ve already preordered two pieces from Moda Operandi and am saving up for a few more when they actually hit stores! My go-to wardrobe is usually neutral solids, so I’m super excited to mix and match prints this spring.

I just got the Simon Miller Beep sandals and am counting down the days until it’s warm enough to wear them. I’ve been dying for a thong heel (Liana and I wrote about them last season!) and these are the chicest ones I have found. This Low Classic belted trench is part of my Yves Saint Laurent urban safari dream come true, and Goldsign’s curved jean is a shape I want to explore. I’m always looking for fun new denim silhouettes to try and have heard rave reviews about this pair. My dream spring purchase would be the new pouch from Bottega Veneta—I love Daniel Lee’s redux.

Is there anything better than the perfect transitional dress for a touch of romance—one that will look great with rain boots and (yippee!) no tights? Or a basic-but-not-boring trench and a totally out-of-this-world, definition-of-spurge-worthy bag? Nope!

My ideal spring go-to is a floral printed dress that can easily transition from day to night. For shoes, I love these Jacquemus leather clogs. The neutral color would pair nicely with almost any print!

Although I’ve championed the turtleneck-under-everything trick this winter, I must admit I’m excited to expose my arms and ankles again this spring. A great short-sleeved shirt and a pair of micro-heeled mules will do just the trick, sans layering. A fun, lightweight jacket that doubles as a raincoat from Rowen Rose is also on my list—it’s perfect for those transitional, not-quite-spring days. I’ve been waiting for the collection to drop ever since I came across the brand on Instagram. Oh, and I want to wear all my blazers with these denim bicycle shorts, too.

I am currently obsessed with Rixo London’s entire dress offering, but this one is my absolute favorite. I love the subtle mix of prints and the easy trans-season appeal; I’d wear it with a fun statement boot, like this zebra pair from Attico, during the still-chilly months of March and April, then swap in By Far’s kitten-heel sandals when true spring finally arrives!

The first time I took Sies Marjan’s violet croc-embossed plastic trenchcoat out for a spin, I was reporting backstage during fashion month and got flagged down by a handful of models asking who made it. It’s that good—and worth building an entire spring wardrobe around. Not that you really need to because, somehow, despite its scaly texture and fluorescent hue, it goes with everything. Still, it looks particularly beautiful with jewel-tone silks and satins. And now that Olivia von Halle has extended her ready-to-wear collection into dresses, I’ve been coveting her gorgeous bias-cut slips, which can be layered under a plain white tee for the office, then worn on their own into the night. Staud’s debut footwear range boasts similar day-to-night versatility, and the Gita sandal, a minimalist’s dream with its skinny mismatched straps, has been sitting in my checkout cart. Finally, tapping into the perennial appeal of Jane Birkin’s signature basket bag while still feeling fresh and special, I love the striking vase shape and wooden beaded handle detail on Loeffler Randall’s wicker tote.

After months of wearing the same sweaters and pants on repeat, I can’t wait to slip into skirts again, namely Paco Rabanne’s satin sarongs paired with Gil Rodriguez’s cotton camis, Sophie Buhai’s anklets, and The Row’s tiny totes.

I’m obsessed with the stretchy material and voluminous sleeves of this Rachel Comey seersucker dress; it’s on my list for spring parties and picnics, though I know I’ll wear it to work every week too. On a cooler day, I’ll layer a long sleeve shirt underneath. I also think this will be the season I finally wear Birkenstocks; I love how lightweight the Arizonas are.

Perhaps it’s because I have the Met’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion” exhibition on my mind, but feathers feel really right to me right now. Ostrich, marabou, or emu feathers, I’ll take them all!

I love the vintage feel of this dress—the cut, the two-tone color, and the tortoiseshell belt are so chic. It’s making me hope and pray for many spring days ahead! It’s “dressed up” enough for the office, but in my opinion, it will look even better with an Aperol spritz and a light tan on the weekends. Very Jackie O! To go with the dress, I love these earrings from Beck Jewels; they’re a fun twist on pearls. Better yet, you can add them to your collection now and let winter know we’re over it.
