Warmer weather seems to be taking its own sweet time to get here, but there’s nothing stopping you from planning your spring wardrobes right now!

Lucky magazine Editor-in-Chief Eva Chen appeared on “Good Morning America” today to share four of the hottest looks of the season — lace mini, tropical print, midi dress and peplum hem – plus shoes and accessories.

Take a look at the outfits Chen discussed:

The Looks

1. Lace Mini Dress

This is a chic take on the classic springtime look. White lacy dresses never go out of style; they’re so romantic and lovely, Chen said. This look touches on the bohemian feel and the shape is simple and modern. Wooden-soled sandals have an easygoing feel and they can be work anywhere.

Get the look:

Dress: Nastygal, $88

Sandals: Old Navy, $32.94

2. Tropical Print

This is the print of the season. On a midi skater dress, the overall vibe is more polished than beachy. Black kitten heels balance out the busy print and add a ladylike feel. If you’re going to wear a tropical print dress, it’s best to keep accessories simple and let the print do all the talking, Chen said.

Dress: Zara, $99

Shoes: Steven kitten heels, $99

3. Midi Dress

Midi dresses are flattering. They highlight the waist and cover wider hips, and the flowing skirts are fun to wear. Pair it with simple sneakers to dress this style down, or dress it up with pumps or heeled sandals and wear it to work, to a baby shower, graduation party or even out dancing with girlfriends. The retro feel of the silhouette makes it very current, but you’ll be able to wear it again next summer.

Dress: Asos midi skater, $41

Sneakers: Vans, $45

4. Peplum Hem

People have recently been wearing peplum at the waist, but this style takes that same peplum and drops it lower on the body. The peplum hemline adds a cute ruffle along the hemline of a dress, creating a fresh way to get the look. The style also gives the appearance of lengthening the body. A simple peplum dress looks chic and sporty with jewel tone, flat sandals, but the dress can also be worn with heels and a blazer to the office.

Get the look:

Dress: Topshop, $96

Sole society flat sandals, $65

Bonus Look

Shirt Dress trend

Shirt dresses come in a huge range of fits and styles – from sleeveless to long sleeve, mini to midi, and very affordable to luxury.  This one has a feminine skirt and fitted top and it’s flattering. Sporty sandals, such as Birkenstocks and Tevas, are a huge shoe trend this spring, and this style of sandal goes well with a polished shirt dress. The key is balance: wear sporty shoes with a girly dress, or simple shoes with a busy dress.

Dress: H&M, $59.95

Shoes: Shopbop.com, $99
