Spring's the Thing: Key Pieces for the New SeasonMarch 20, 2017 - by Heather Rabkin
We’ve set our clocks ahead. Now it’s only fitting to spring forward our closets as well. The days are getting longer and a seasonal, sartorial refresh is due. Think accessories destined for picnics in the park, sandals for the sunny days ahead and, yes, raincoats for the inevitable bout of spring showers. There’s no better time to enjoy strolling (and shopping) the streets of Manhattan. Read on for our guide to the must-have pieces to scoop up this spring.
Spring Fashion NYC: Louis Vuitton
1.) The classic Louis Vuitton-monogrammed tote gets a tropical makeover with this limited-edition palm print. The pops of pink and red make this ideal for tackling a day of sightseeing.

Spring Fashion NYC: Salvatore Ferragamo
2.) Sandals that add some extra height and are walking-friendly are no easy find. Hence why this pair by Salvatore Ferragamo is a total gem. The floral motif along the platform and black leather straps make this an easy shoe to wear from day to night.

Spring Fashion NYC: MoMA Design Store
3.) The iconic “I Heart NY” logo looks particularly fetching on this reusable, eco-friendly tote bag from MoMA. Incredibly, the nylon bag can hold up to 50 lbs. (ideal for a Central Park picnic). It’s even machine washable.

Spring Fashion NYC: Clare V
4.) The sunglasses collaboration between hip, LA-based Clare V and revered optical label Garrett Leight is a spring and summer must-have item. The frames have a retro shape and the tortoise motif is bright and sunny.

Spring Fashion NYC: Topshop
5.) We all know April showers bring May flowers. Rather than lament the rainy days ahead, we highly recommend donning this metallic rain Mac from Topshop. After all, the British do know a thing or two about making it through a rainy day in style.

Spring Fashion NYC: Marimekko
6.) To keep toes warm in the last weeks of spring thaw, look no further than Marimekko’s cheery socks. These are decorated with the Finnish brand’s signature Poppy print.
