Your Comprehensive Spring Shopping Guide

While getting rid of clutter and deep cleaning your apartment are the best ways to welcome warmer weather, your annual spring refresh can also include some spring shopping. Target? Find something fun to get your mind, body, and home ready for a brand new season.

After all, this time of year is all about changing your routine. In the beauty world, spring means swapping heavy lotions for lightweight sunscreen, knitted beanies for coconut-scented hairspray and beachy waves, and heavy winter fragrances for something sweeter.

Extra sunshine and daylight can also get you in the mood for a healthy dose of your fitness game, whether that means trying a new workout or finding a way to make meditation (finally) work for you. Even though you'll be hitting the parks and sidewalk cafes—rather than snuggling up to your home—it always feels good to update your apartment. Think bright mirrors, breezy sheets, and lots (lots) of plants.

If you're ready to shop, Bustle's editors are rounding up the best and hottest products for spring, from a wealth of beauty products and wellness gadgets to tech wearables and cute home essentials to kick off your spring cleaning The finishing touch. Consider this your go-to shopping guide for Spring 2023.

Put away the puffer jackets and combat boots, because it's time to break out your light coats—along with your miniskirts, mules, and neon bags. To brighten up your wardrobe, check out some of this season's hottest pieces...all of which will earn you best-dressed status.
