Clear your schedules, ladies. You’ve got some shopping to do.

But first, you’ve got some spring cleaning to do. Yes, it’s officially the time of year to throw out everything you haven’t worn — or even thought about wearing — over the past year.

Because let’s face it. Even though Kendall and Kylie were (paid to be) spotted wearing Uggs late last year, your 5-year-old pair has no business leaving your closet… except if they’re going to a donation bin.

But the good news is, a thorough spring closet cleaning makes room for more clothes and even more shoes. Here are our top 5 picks for the spring shoe essentials you need this season for your most fashion-forward wardrobe yet.

1. THE WOODEN PLATFORM

The 70s are back baby! Wooden platforms are the perfect semi-casual spring shoe because they can be worn with dresses, shorts, and pants — and look especially great with flared jeans. They’re super flattering and elongate your legs to the max.

2. THE STATEMENT SNEAKER

Athleisure has been a pretty prevalent trend for a while now, and we’re happy to say that your trusty sneakers aren’t going anywhere. This season, update your go-to kicks with unexpected details, from weaving and tassels, to cut outs and patterns, to a daring platforms that give us tasteful Spice Girls vibes.

3. THE KITTEN PUMP

We’ve got to admit, kitten heels have never been our cup of tea. But block heels have been making a major comeback, and when combined with a heel that’s not-quite-kitten-not-quite-pump, the shoe becomes modern both in shape and style. And bonus: They’re way less harsh on your feet.

4. THE LACE-UP FLAT

We hope you’ve been practicing your pliés… The lace-up flat was all over magazine editorials and fashion blogs last summer, and this year they’re coming back in a brighter, bolder way. Take your flats to next level with gladiator-esque detailing, a slinky open toe, or a pop of the season’s hottest color — especially when paired with a muted rose shade.save_and_splurge_womens_spring_shoe_essentials_platforms_sneakers_flats_sandals_pumps_designer_gift_cards_4.jpg

5. THE BOLD SANDAL

And of course, it’s not officially spring until your freshly polished toes make an appearance. This year, go bold or go home with metallic accents, unexpected cut outs, over-the-top embellishment, and color. Lots and lots of color.
