Every time spring arrives, it brings new layering techniques and optimistic hues with it. Between butter-yellow trench coats, Bottega green dad caps, and lightweight shackets, there are tons of new arrivals that will get you out of that cold-weather rut and bring some levity to your wardrobe.

To help coax you out of your knitwear, we've corralled 6 spring outfits from the Instagram set that will ease the transition from cold winters to steaming summers. These fashionable individuals have provided us with all the spring outfit ideas one could hope for, regardless of their personal aesthetic or color wheel. Below, discover six stylish springtime ensembles, and ready your closet for a welcomed revamp.

1.

Earthy Quilting

Influencer and model Amy Juliette Lefévre gave the casual quilted jacket a sophisticated upgrade by calling on tailored separates. With the anorak as the focal point, she enhanced the cool-girl tones with effortlessly loose trousers, a zip-up knit top, and walkable sneakers. This can be worn from early morning coffee dates to lunch meetings.

2.

Lighten Up

Influencer Jen Ceballos has perfected the cozy aesthetic for spring, styling white basics—like loose-fitting denim and a classic white T-shirt—with a trendy aviator jacket. The clean-slate foundation of the look allows the jacket to do the talking, especially when paired with matching heeled boots. Plus, its shearling interior will keep you warm enough for chilly mornings and can be thrown over your shoulders as the afternoon heats up. 

3.

Signature Trench

Every fashion girl (and guy) knows the trench coat is an integral part of spring and autumn dressing. It serves as the ideal lightweight layering piece for any aesthetic, which Frankie Shop cool-girl Michelle Hyebin Yang proves with this look. Go for an oversized silhouette and pair yours with other normcore pieces, like a tote bag and baseball cap.

After 2020’s resurgence, the tennis skirt is here to stay—and for good reason. The flirty, yet sporty must-have is an easy way to catch some sun and show some leg, even on the most casual spring days. Fashion editor Chrissy Rutherford is a fan, teaming hers with a cream-colored sweater and Gucci's Jackie crossbody. In this pared-back look, accessories steal the show.

5.

Tone It Down

Neutrals are anything but boring, especially when each piece can speak for itself. This influencer called on her favorite palette to create a classic look that transfers from day to night with ease. When choosing trousers, opt for a high-rise pair with interesting details. In this case, it’s the built-in, waist-tying belt. Don't forget a pair of strappy heels. We recommend Bottega Veneta's cult-loved mesh sandals in Sand.

6.

Pop of Purple

We can always count on a fashion editor to gift us an inspiring, yet attainable look for spring. Take a page out of Vogue editor Madeline Fass’ book by teaming all your creamy favorites together. The foundation? A pop of color via footwear—red, purple, or yellow will suffice. Pro tip: the ensemble's lightweight shacket is sure to get tons of mileage in your other spring outfits, too.
