Spring refresh: Updating your wardrobe with Johnston & Murphy
"As the weather begins to warm up, I am craving some new closet essentials for running around the city! This season's Johnston & Murphy collection hits my top three must haves from the perfect trench to comfy ballet flats." - Emilee of Emilee Anne
"The Dotted Square Jacquard Trench Coat is as unexpected as it is classic with its luxurious fabrication. Dress it up or dress it down, this coat is an absolute spring staple." - Emilee of Emilee Anne
"I am a lover of oxfords in basically all forms.  The shoes, the shirts, the cities, the universities (is there more than one?) but I’ve gotta say that this particular pair of Johnston & Murphy Deena Wingtip Oxfords is quite possibly the cutest (and MOST COMFORTABLE) form of Oxford I have ever beheld." - Mary of Memorandum
"There’s nothing like a good statement shoe to make the rest of your outfit a breeze.  Speaking of breeze, this Draped Front Suede Jacket, also by Johnston & Murphy is the reigning queen of spring layering pieces in my closet.  It goes with everything, can be dressed up, can be dressed down and with the beautiful draped-front, it can make the simplest of ensembles look effortlessly and exquisitely 'put together.'" - Mary of Memorandum
"Pink oxfords, striped blazers, embellished button ups -- they're all menswear pieces that are still feminine. Choose pieces like this to make it easier to pair with a feminine outfit!" - Merrick of Merrick's Art
"This spring I've been obsessed with powder pink, so I was instantly drawn to these gorgeous oxfords from Johnston and Murphy." - Merrick of Merrick's Art
"Spring wardrobe updates often bring to mind light layers and bright colors. Simple little dresses like this one paired with easy sandals are one of my favorite go to ensembles." - Chassity of Look Linger Love
"This Draped Front Suede Jacket by Johnston & Murphy is so light and perfect for those windy days and chilly evenings!" - Chassity of Look Linger Love
"It’s no secret my closet (and style) was suffering from the winter blues and this bright trench is the perfect addition to my spring wardrobe. I love that it’s reversible so you can go with classic white or polka dots for fun." - Jess of Prosecco and Plaid
"The [Vacchetta Laney Quarter Strap] heels are the perfect height for day to night style (I walked around the [Golden Gate] park in them and had no issues!)." - Jess of Prosecco and Plaid
"I'm obsessed with these Deena Piped Oxfords because they're comfortable and ideal for spring! The bit of sparkle gives them a less traditional look, which I love. They're an awesome way to add some personality and uniqueness to your work wardrobe while remaining totally appropriate for the office." - Blair of The Fox & She
"This year I've just about decided that pastels are now a neutral. This Blush Draped Front Suede Jacket from Johnston & Murphy has the right amount of warmth for crisp spring nights and the color adds some girly flair without being too bold." - Blair of The Fox & She
"What’s any spring getup without the perfect trench? I love how this navy jacquard style differs from your traditional trench for spring but still acts as a great neutral item in your wardrobe so it pairs easily with different patterns, colors and fabrics." - Krystin of Suburban Faux Pas
"Given the winter white movement that so many seemed to love, I gravitated to these white drivers which will work great with all of the red, white, blue and cognac accents in my wardrobe." - Krystin of Suburban Faux Pas
"Ever since runway brands have reinvented the classic slider sandal, it's all I can ever think about when deciding what to pair with an almost-spring outfit. Long white t-shirt and ripped jeans? Slider sandal. White jeans and a suede jacket? Slider sandal. Leggings and a big comfy hoodie? You guessed it, slider sandals." - Justine of Jetset Justine
"Something as classic as the spring suede jacket can be reinvented over and over. ... Sure, you could continue to wear your winter coat into May – in theory – but when you lock eyes with a blush pink, Draped Front Suede Jacket like this one also from Johnston & Murphy, it is hard not to make a case for layering."  - Justine of Jetset Justine
"This blazer from Johnston & Murphy is definitely going to be a repeat offender - it's just too easy to wear over a dress or t-shirt for a night out." - Kendall of Styled Snapshots
"I decided to cuff the sleeves to create a more relaxed feel, and paired it with distressed denim and my new favorite blush oxfords. These shoes add such a fun and unexpected twist on a classic look." - Kendall of Styled Snapshots
"These black slip-ons accomplish a sporty, unisex, casual vibe that I appreciate in any shoe. I love the overall look of this outfit." - Michelle of Take Aim
"Pajama vibes are “in”this season and I used a white blazer to compliment the look (and to squash anyone’s possible wonderings if I meant to get dressed before I left the house!) White blazers are awesome for spring - so versatile and classic." - Michelle of Take Aim
"I love that Johnston & Murphy carries pieces that are total classic with a twist.  Like the mod dot pattern on this trench coat.  I seriously can't get enough!" - Jen of The Effortless Chic
"I don't know about you, but I've packed up my boots and officially declared it pedicure weather from here on out.  I love that this simple sandal can be dressed up easily, but pairs well with this every day look, too." - Jen of The Effortless Chic
"This White Box Jacquard Hooded Jacket I die for in particular. I can’t get enough of anything in white." - Jess of The Golden Girl
"Moving onto these chic black and white Bree Slip-Ons, which I haven’t taken off in about two weeks. Ultra comfortable, and a great in-between if I don’t want to wear my trainers (too casual) or sandals (too cold!) I love how they’re minimalistic, slightly sporty, yet still feminine, all at the same time." - Jess of The Golden Girl
"My go-to denim dress was perfect for a casual morning paired with my new favorite J&M gingham oxfords. Their shoes are so incredibly comfortable, I swear it feels like I’m walking on little clouds (and that’s hard to say about brand new shoes!)" - Liz of Sequins and Stripes
"For my afternoon meeting, I added a white trench and opted for leopard ankle strap wedges that were the perfect height for walking the 15 minutes to the coffee shop. It’s amazing what some fun accessories can do to an otherwise super simple look." - Liz of Sequins and Stripes
"Now let's all take a moment of silence for these White Vacchetta/Blue-White Dot Deena Wingtip shoes. If I were to design my dream shoe, it would probably look just like this." - McKenzie of Girl Loves Glam
"This jacket couldn't be any more perfect. Spring in Idaho isn't exactly a warm experience on most days. Pretty much all the word "spring" means is that most days it doesn't snow and we catch a glimpse of our grass again. A good jacket is definitely necessary." - McKenzie of Girl Loves Glam

It's time to shake out of your winter style slump and get ready for spring! With the help of gorgeous shoes and jackets from Johnston & Murphy, our contributors are showing us how to update your wardrobe for the warmer weather, with classics that will last forever.

There's nothing quite like a statement shoe to take your outfit to the next level, and everyone who knows the power a stylish ensemble holds understands that when you look great, you feel great. The same can be said for a killer transitional jacket, whether it's a pretty patterned trench coat (we here at StyleList live in trench coats) or a gorgeous draped suede coat.
