The best statement pieces to add to your closet this spring

It's about that time of year again: the weather slowly starts to warm up and your closet begins to look more and more, well, bland. Finally freshen up your wardrobe and make a *total* statement this spring with these 7 essential pieces.

Argyle sweater vest 

Obviously, argyle sweaters have gotten *all* the rave this past fall and winter, as people paired them with turtlenecks and jeans. Going into spring, opt for one with colorful hues and dress it down with jean shorts and sneakers, or up with a tennis skirt and chunky booties (see number 5). Snag this cotton candy cutie at Lash Next Door.

Sheer jumbo scrunchie

A more extravangant take on the regular scunchie, a *jumbo* scrunchie will bring all the attention to your beautiful locks. The sheerness adds to the airy, fresh vibe of springtime, especially if it's in a delicate color. Check out this set of perfectly-pastel ones from Target.

Paperbag shorts

This modern take on the 90s trend is perfect for every season and every body type. Cropping or tucking in your shirt is the *key* when styling paperbag shorts. Wear them now with a button-up cardigan or in the summertime with a cool blouse or tank. This pair from Forever 21 comes in medium, light and black denim.

Puff-sleeve dress

Fulfill your cottagecore dreams this spring by purchasing a dress with adorable puff sleeves. Choosing one with a dainty floral print will have you ready to frolick in a field of flowers (just take some aesthetic pics with a disposal camera while you're at it). Shop tons of lovely puff-sleeve dresses at Lulu's.

White chunky boots

If you wore your black chunky boots all winter, you should *def* consider investing in a white version for spring. Trendy, versatile and comfy: what more could you need in a pair of shoes? Buy this much-needed pair at Dolls Kill.

Utility romper

OK, we definitely see these becoming a *huge* trend this season because of its chic, effortless vibe. Wear your romper with a pair of white booties, bold shades and a baguette bag, and you'll look *straight* out of Hollywood, trust. Shop these pink and yellow denim rompers at Boohoo. 

Baker boy hat

Or cabbie hats or newspaper caps...TBH, we're not really sure what to call them. But they're most definitely 100% ah-dor-a-ble. Swap out your winter beanie for this fab hat and watch every spring outfit effortlessly come together. Find a tan corduory one at Forever 21 for only $5.
