I don't need to tell you how big of a statement your shoes can make — and since Spring is all about getting outside and strolling the streets, you're going to need a stylish pair of sneakers to brighten up your look while providing ultimate comfort. From classic to colorful to a little bit dressy, we've rounded up the top 10 cool kicks you need for the new season.
The banana in all its tropical glory made a bold runway debut at Prada; for Spring, we're seeing lots of tropical references, from palm prints to lattice shoes. It's a fun, lighthearted way — think of Carmen Miranda's gorgeous excess — to infuse color and texture into your Spring wardrobe, and it will carry you happily through the Summer months. If you don't want to invest in Prada's bananas, try these mini banana earrings ($5) for a small tropical punch. Or take a more subtle approach to tropical dressing with these Proenza Schouler lace-up shoes ($895).
A flash of skin in small doses is never a bad thing — and this season's wispy, ultra-feminine sheer maxi skirt is a surefire way to work the see-through trend without being, well, scandalous. This Rag & Bone pleated silk maxi skirt ($450) is a seemingly tricky investment piece but one that, when carefully styled, can deliver endless options through every season. For those of you ready to show some skin this Spring, here are five ways to wear the barely there sheer maxi skirt.

>> We're expecting a load of rain showers for the next couple weeks, so we rounded up some of the best rain-repelling (but still stylish) gear for you to stay dry in. There's a cute Marc by Marc Jacobs umbrella to add a little sunshine to your day, a smart canvas coated coat from Opening Ceremony, waterproof booties, and a windproof bucket hat from Urban Outfitters — that should do the trick. But there's more where that came from — check out the slideshow for more of our splash-proof favorites!
Taylor Swift's grown up a lot over the past year — and so has her style. While her aesthetic is undoubtedly girlie, she pulls it all together with sartorial maturity, layering a floral-print dress ($20, originally $45) with an oversize, off-the-shoulder knit ($171). To finish, we'd throw on a pair of peep-toe flats, like Taylor's, then add a crossbody bag in a rich leather, just to offset the sweetness. Feeling inspired? Just click the items above to shop a similarly Spring-appropriate look.
