by edited by Rachel Morgan


Spring is finally here, and with it, comes the need to spruce—or spring—up your wardrobe. We canvassed a selection of local boutiques, stores and shops to find what’s hot for the season, from pastel colors to backpacks to new takes on old classics.

Classic Coat
No spring wardrobe is complete without a denim jacket, and J.Crew’s clean version is the perfect mix of old and new. $288 at J.Crew, 500 Route 73 S., Marlton, (856) 988-9046,

Stud Sparklers
These jeweled stud earrings from South Moon Under add just enough sparkle to any ensemble, and move effortlessly from day to night. $29.50 at South Moon Under, 500 Route 73 S., Marlton, (856) 988-0254,

Stripe Your Fancy
Spring brings the newest take on this year’s “it” shoe, Valentino’s Rockstud T-Strap pump, in a fun multi-stripe pattern. And don’t worry about matching—these babies go with everything. $1,195 at Nordstrom, 2000 Route 38, Cherry Hill, (856) 773-5600,

Back to Basics
The perfectly pink Jetsetter Mini Convertible Backback from Henri Bendel features Saffiano leather trim and a durable, water-resistant nylon construction.

Personalized Python
Add the perfect accent to your outfit with these colorful clutches from Gigi New York.
