It’s official: Spring is here, which means it’s time to give yourself a big pat on the back for making it through another cold winter.

A classic jumpsuit that can be made spring-ready in seconds, and a lightweight mohair sweater you can throw on over your go-to slip dress. Ahead, see some of the best transitional winter-to-spring outfits of all time, and shop the pieces needed to re-create each look in seconds.
