A lot - we mean A LOT - of incredible pieces have made their way into the shopbop offices this season, and it's bringing on a widespread case of spring fever. Take Melanie, for example. She's a little fixated on Jennifer Zeuner's Open Circles Cuff, and Erin's already got big plans for the Scoop Tee Dress by Bop Basics. Denny has her eye on Hunter's futuristic silver wellie, and I'm holding on tight to Foley + Corinna's Studded City Clutch. And there's a lot more where those came from. Spring fever is in the air. Catch it, at shopbop.

When dress shopping, we used to concentrate on the flatter factor of the neckline, and the question of straps or no straps was invariably considered. Then there was the great empire-versus-natural-waist debate of 2007. In short: our dresses' skirts were feeling seriously neglected. Not anymore because this spring adores the ornate hemline. Rory Beca is doing it with a sweet little ruffle, and Jovovich-Hawk mingles eyelet, paisley, and scallops to brilliant effect. But that's just the beginning. Designers across the fashion spectrum have been charmed by elegant trimming, and it's changing the way we look at the dress. See for yourself, right here, at shopbop.

All this talk of March Madness makes us think one thing: we've gotta get serious about our spring fashion picks. We're putting our money on the understated sexiness of Derek Lam's Leopard Print Pleated Blouse and the rough-hewn brilliance of Barbara Bui's Lace-Ups. Our dark horse favorite? Anya Hindmarch's Cholet bag. It's just the sort of flying-under-the-radar find that stops fellow fashion mavens in their tracks. Spring styles to take you straight to the sartorial championships? They're right here, at the Designer Boutique.

Mastering boho chic requires your wardrobe to take a big gulp of free-spirited style, but that doesn't mean the next step has to find you frolicking barefoot through fields of wildflowers (unless that's your thing). No, this season the trend is concentrating on the stylish side of the bohemian equation, meaning it's less do-it-yourself and more strikingly elegant. Think Woodstock meets urban refinement and don an artfully tie-dyed Binetti frock with fringed Paul & Joe sandals. For a disheveled-yet-sleek Euro-inspired look, pair a Karen Zambos mini dress with a Leigh & Luca scarf, or try Vena Cava's Stork Club Dress for an upscale take on hippie style. It's time to get to know the new bohemian chic. Find it right here, at shopbop.

It's the stuff we live in, the twilled cotton that makes up our jeans, and a day rarely passes that we don't slip on our favorite pair. This season, we adore the light wash, particularly Seven's bleached Sunset Jean, which gives a nod to the '80s while feeling so very now. The high waist is everywhere and always fabulous, and J Brand's Cass Jean paints the perfect picture of what we love about the leg-elongating look. If you want to take the classic route, we've got that too because new denim's here in every shade of blue. Find your favorite right now, at shopbop.
