In its March issue, PEOPLE Stylewatch takes a look at three hot spring fashion trends: "ballet," "nautical" and "mod," and shows how to get three looks from each trend.  Here's how to pull together these great spring looks:

Ballet Trend
When it comes to the Ballet look for this spring, the key is movement and volume and shades of blush and gray.  You can go from a loose shirt to a soft swingy dress, then choose ballet flats or lace-up pumps, and add a delicate headband to finish the look.
