If you don’t have a pair of these in your wardrobe (or your wish list) already, we’re not sure how you’re going to make it through the season. A little bit ’70s, a little bit I-just-got-off-my-horse, and ripe for wearing under your below-the- knee dresses and skirts, they are the key to so many looks this season. Plus – now and forever – these boots are the perfect way to feel warm while looking cool.

This season’s unlikely new erogenous zone? Shoulders. And its never been easier to show yours off thanks to a fresh batch of skin-baring tops and dresses.
In crisp fabrics and soft silhouettes, they are foolproof when coupled with spring’s other collarbone-accentuating trend super long earrings. Add wide leg pants, breezy skirts, or cropped jeans and remember to keep the rest simple. The vibe is more 60′s Saint-Tropez than Hee How, so decidedly undone hair and a coquettish smile are the only extras you need.
