This week, we’re breaking down exactly which trends to wear on top this spring. Next Tuesday, we’ll tackle those bottoms.

1. The crop top is here to stay. So pull out your collection – or start building one immediately.

2. Don’t freak out. There’s no football experience required to sport these varsity jackets.

3. Give the necklace a break. Embellished collars are having a much-deserved moment.

4. Chambray all day, every day? We’re cool with that.

5. The trench is timeless and chic. So we’re buying one in every color.
