Begone black coats and chunky roll necks! It’s finally time for that all-important wardrobe switch-over, and while putting winter warmers into storage is a strong start, your closet will probably need to play catch-up with the looks of the new season. The five A-list road-tested fashion tweaks in this gallery have been chosen for their no-buy prowess. You may already own many of the items here – like a biker jacket or white shoes – so it’s just a case of styling them in a different way.

Last summer’s well-loved matching tops and skirts or trousers are back. Hooray! And the good news is, all you need to make them look au courant is a pair of mannish sandals. They provide such girlishness with a good dose of dressing down. See Katy Perry at Coachella for the ultimate inspo.

4. Get shirty with mom jeans
