Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
If you were looking for permission, here it is: You can totally start shopping for spring.
To aid you in your quest for seasonal newness, we scoured the best shopping sites to bring you 10 just-dropped buys we really, really think you may like. Check out the Reformation pants that keep selling out (and pick up a pair before they're gone again!), see the made-in-NY shoulder bag that could be your 9-to-5 solution, consider Mansur Gavriel's new shape, and see what may be the most flattering cropped flares out there, all in the gallery above.
