Spring is here and it's time to switch out your winter coats for something on trend. A slew of stylists and stores are offering their recommendations on how to fresh up your spring wardrobe without spending too much.

Tanger Outlets style maker Briana Gurley recommends opting for iconic black and whites, romantic sheer pieces or fresh cut outs to make sure you're on trend this season.

She's also selected five seasonal staples that will have you looking sharp, and they're ones you can wear again and again. "While this season is blooming with exciting trends, these five easy pieces for spring will add a 'wow' factor to any outfit," said Gurley.

  • Shiny track pants — a staple to keep daytime casual or glam up for a night out
  • Raindrop earrings — shiny and cylindrical to help you sparkle as you move
  • Cinch bags — a fresh take on the structured bucket bag that complements any style
  • ​Polished gunmetal cuffs — the perfect combination of fierce and elegant
  • ​Canvas sneakers — a classic comfort throwback returns for spring

Trendy retailer H&M says spring is all about layering and updating your wardrobe with bright pops of color and fun prints. Among the big trends:

  • Floral patterns — A flowy dress in blue and green hues from H&M’s Conscious collection can be accessorized with a statement floppy hat 
  • Boho chic — Pair a '70s-inspired blouse with a suede jacket and a flare leg jean
  • Pastels for men — Chino shorts in a bright shade paired with a striped polo provides a classic yet contemporary look

Other must-have items to freshen up a spring wardrobe include a linen bomber jacket and skinny-fit pants that can transition from day to night.
