But what Laura doesn't know is that we have several other surprises in store for her. Let's just say she's getting a few other treats, including a dedicated photo shoot!

Printed shorts are the natural evolution of those printed pants we lived in all Winter long. With Spring finally here, we love nothing more than the idea of livening up our basic tops with everything from flat-front to pleated to more-modest bermuda shorts, all in a kaleidoscope of prints and colors. The best part of these are how incredibly versatile they are. For daytime, add on a tee and strappy flat sandals. For night, take a page out of Solange Knowles's how-to book on wearing a rocking shorts suit with sexy heels. Ready? Head inside to see and shop your soon-to-be favorite pairs.

With Spring on the horizon, we're looking to trade out our puffer coats for cooler wares in the next few weeks. That said, we're looking at this perfect street-style snap to inspire our next outfit. We love the lightwash denim on denim as an easy outfit starter, punctuated with a statement-making houndstooth jacket. The finishing touch? A pair of cutout ankle boots and punchy pink bag add just right amount of zing to this effortlessly cool look. Get on board and shop our similar picks below.

Like so many of our favorite contemporary designers, Michelle Smith was also feeling the '90s-era nostalgia for Milly's Fall 2013 collection. We typically look to Milly for party-girl dresses and easy daywear, but this season there was an obvious shift to something cooler. Drawing from urban landscapes, Smith's set had a punk-meets-glam rock feel in high-wattage finishes — be it via a hologram bag, plaid, or photo prints layered and juxtaposed against menswear-inspired silhouettes, classic wool, and leather bombers. There are the pieces that have the statement-making power built right in — the patent, embossed, and lurex minis, perforated sweatshirts, and glittered, girlie midiskirts that you can already envision bloggers showing off in street-style shoots. But, when you peel away the layers of plaid, sequins, and glossy finishes, there's a collection of great outerwear in brilliant color, leather trousers, and little dresses that have just as much appeal as any of Milly's trendier fare.
- Trends: Metallics, '90s silhouettes, leather, plaid.
- Colors: Black, royal blue, silver, hot pink, gray.
- Shoes: Black ankle boots, silver heels.
- Beauty look: Messy, low ponytails, fresh faces, pink lips.
- Editors' pick: We're eying those oversize hologram clutches.
