Color-Blocking

Jump into spring with a color-blocking bang, like this outfit that "Teenage Dream" singer Katy Perry wore at the Roc Nation pre-Grammy brunch in Hollywood. To get this look, don't be afraid to play around with and pair up bright and bold colors, like yellow, blue, red, aqua and neon pink.

Shorts Suit

Nothing says chic and sophisticated like a shorts suit, and they're already everywhere. Consider this black suit that Golden Globe Award-winning actress Michelle Williams wore to the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica. No need to stick with basic black; try lighter colors for a softer look.

Actress Kristen Bell transitions from chilly weather to spring in this sheer lace blouse and blazer with polka dot pants. You can get this look, too, in white, black and any shade in between. Just make sure you wear the proper undergarments to keep the look classy. Pair your look with fun tribal accessories for an extra trendy tidbit.

If spring came in a flavor, this year it would come in tangerine, like this collared shirt and shorts combo worn by singer Kimbra Johnson at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival. Stretch your wardrobe's color palette with this warm, orange tone. You can wear it as a top, bottom, or simply as an accent piece.

White Jeans

This spring it's time to toss your blues aside and pull out the white denim, like these jeans that singer-songwriter Mollie King wore to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Or make a plain outfit pop with a white denim jacket.

Don't just stop and smell the flowers; this season, wear them, too. Exhibit A: This jazzy floral print dress actress Zoe Saldana wore at the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Pier. For a classic look with a modern twist, go for a floral print pair of pants or skirt.

Platforms are back again this spring, with bolder styles, like these heel-less Guiseppe Zanotti platforms actress Lucy Liu wore at the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards. Even if you're not ready to go heel-less just yet, you can still rock this look with a pair of platforms in bold or pastel tones.

Black-and-White Graphic Prints

Black-and-White Graphic Prints

Rev up that dress and cardigan combo with a black-and-white graphic print, like this dress that Grammy Award-winning singer Jill Scott wore at the 5th Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon in Beverly Hills. You can also achieve this look with a graphic skirt, scarf or top.

Pink Clutch

Pink Clutch

Sometimes, just a splash of color on the perfect accessory can breathe new life into a monochromatic look, like this pink clutch that "The Flowers of War" actress Ni Ni wore at the Louis Vuitton-Marc Jacobs: The Exhibition event during Paris Fashion Week. Cling to a pink clutch to complete your look the next time you head out to a party or after-hours event.

If you prefer simple spring style, opt for bright flats with cute straps like these vegan sandals by designer Victoria Bartlett. VPL for Spring 2012 offers several chic options for anyone looking to make their shoe collection more eco- and animal-friendly. "The shoes range from colorful sandals to mod-inspired wedges, perfect for a girl-about-town wanting to make a fashion statement," wrote MarieClaire.com blogger Amanda Hearst. So, don't be a neon neophyte, step boldly into spring with punchy hues made popular by stars like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj.
