BEING AN editor atSI Swimsuit means exotic places, fresh fashions and an ever-growing list of must-haves. This week we’re letting you in on some of our favorite trends for spring! From bohemian to preppy to rocker-chic, here's how we're making this spring a fashionable one.

Alyssa Conroy, Editorial Assistant: The Boho Look
Since moving to NYC, I have come down with the NYC fashion bug. It consists of having a closet only containing black, shades of gray and black. I love it, I do—but black and warmer weather do not mix, so I'm using spring as an excuse to get back to my love of all things bohemian.. The amazing pants by Lovers & Friends are perfect for a spring time brunch (Kendall Jenner wore them here) , the gorgeous Vanessa Mooney x For Love & Lemons necklace is a perfect layering piece, and this jumpsuit by Dolce Vita just kills it.

Janine Berey, Assistant Editor: Maxi Dresses
So excited that it's that time of year again, especially after the brutal winter NYC had. The weather is finally nice and I cannot wait to break out my favorite springtime trend: the maxi dress. They are super simple and easy to throw on when you are in a rush. You can dress them up and dress them down, which makes them my top pick for the season.

Darcie Baum, Senior Editor: Leather Jackets
It’s spring! Finally! This makes most people think of pastels, floral prints and showing some (admittedly pale) skin. Not I. All I want for my spring wardrobe is a fabulous leather jacket. Why not dull down a sunny, blooming spring with the tough black wardrobe staple? I prefer the waist length version, but there are tons of gorgeous cropped jackets available right now, but I need to be practical because spring for me means motorcycle season, so real leather, real length and real fashion are top priority.

MJ Day, Assistant Managing Editor - Pastels and Pleats
I haven't had time to do much shopping in between finishing the 2014 issue and gearing up to shoot the 2015 issue, but if I did, I would totally be all over that pretty, pale pleated look that’s going on right now. I love it and it truly speaks spring and sunshine to me!
