Early spring weather is a bit tricky because surprise showers can happen quite often so a trench coat is an absolute must-have. But once the clouds clear up, the weather calls for shorter sleeves, brighter colors, and lighter fabrics.
Forget about dark leather boots and opt for the ultimate spring shoe style––a pair of Italian-made loafers. And speaking of accessories, sunglasses are another springtime essential––we found the coolest pair by Gucci that would flatter any face shape.
