As hopeful and rejuvenating as it is supposed to be, the actual duration of spring can be a bit of a drag. Getting dressed can feel like more of a chore than should, which is why we need a bit more inspiration to keep from falling into a closet rut. While we certainly have a significant shopping list of new essentials for the season (like white leather and modern pencil skirts), sometimes the best inspiration comes from inside our own wardrobes. What better place to start than skinny jeans?

When it's cool, keep rocking your statement-making over-the-knee boots and menswear-inspired coats. Or, opt for trying a warm knit over your shirt instead of a coat. When it's warmer, rock your favorire cropped skinny jeans with sneakers and a denim jacket. And if you weren't wearing them all winter, it's time to break out your white jeans. Go for a full monochromatic look or pair them with a navy pea coat for a French-meets-nautical vibe. (Emmanuelle Alt, anyone?)
