>> Sun protection is key during the Spring and Summer months, so we rounded up our favorite toppers that will surely keep your face free from harmful UV rays. This season's freshest crop boasts a wide variety of shapes and colors: a reddish coral straw floppy hat from Urban Outfitters, femme bow cloche from Topshop, crisp and streamlined fedora from Lacoste . . . and more of our favorites in the slideshow. Feeling shady never looked so good.
If the sudden surge of warmer temperatures has you scrambling for some cute Spring skirts, don't fret. We combed through the options and plucked out our favorite skirts, ranging in a multitude of colors, lengths and price points, for you to shop. A bright tangerine maxi skirt from Acne, floral explosion from Jil Sander, denim necessity from Vera Moda, and more covetable picks in the slideshow.
>> Now that we have you in a Spring state of mind, check out our favorite bright bags and clutches of the season. There's a classic satchel made in a modern bright green hue from Cambridge Satchel Company, Jil Sander's covetable hot fuchsia market bag, an orange bucket bag from Tory Burch, and more shoppable eye candy you don't want to miss in the slideshow.
>> Spring is right around the corner — and we have ten pairs of wedge sandals to get geared up for the warm weather ahead. From Loeffler Randall and Suno's bright printed pair to Diane von Furstenberg's slick black-and-white nautical-inspired creations, we surely have something for everyone. Check out the slideshow for our top ten, plus why we love them!
>> While we already discussed all the out-of-the-box denim possibilities come Spring, we've yet to talk about finding the essential pair of jeans. Lucky for you, we sifted through a ton of options and found the best around — think cropped and flared, white skinnies, and lightwash trousers — that are sure to carry you through Spring and well into Summer.
>> We're currently in the thick of Fall 2011 London Fashion Week, but that doesn't mean we can't take a quick breather to check out all of the new Spring 2011 runway looks currently dropping in a store near you. In ode to all of the designers showing their collections across the pond, check out what's hot, new, and available right now from the Spring runways of Acne, Burberry, Topshop Unique, and Christopher Kane.
>> Whether or not you'll actually be attending Fashion Week makes no difference to street-style photographers looking for that perfect snap. If you're looking for a little fashion stardom, we suggest donning some standout accessories. Check out our scintillating selection — varying from a pink Valentino clutch to spiked bracelets from Eddie Borgo; they're sure to leave you standing in the flash zone.
>> We can't slip into a pair of breezy sandals or peep-toe booties for another (tortuous) couple of months, but there's no harm in checking out what's available so when the weather's ready, we're ready, too. Our favorite pairs — ranging from Alaia stitched sandals to Miu Miu striped ballet flats — are sure to take you from a freezing 24 degrees to the high 70s in no time at all (we hope). The Groundhog did predict an early Spring, after all.
>> Spikes, studs, and zippers will have at least one more hurruh come Spring thanks to designers like Balenciaga, Balmain, and Burberry. If you're still jonesing for the punk'd look, add some tough touches to your wardrobe with our picks, ranging from leather biker jackets to denim vests from ALC, Twenty8Twelve, and See by Chloe.
