Spring TIPS and TRENDS

Here’s a great question….. has it finally quit raining??? We should actually start having beautiful Spring-time weather. So…..what’s new for Spring?

One of the biggest trends for Spring is clean and crisp STRIPES! Stripes are everywhere and on everything this season! Narrow stripes are more flattering on most people than a bold stripe which can be a trickier option. Treat a two tone contrast stripe like this jacket from Dillard’s as a neutral and wear with any other solid color, or a print if you’re adventurous!

Another trend for Spring is a black and white color combo. It’s found in clothes, accessories, and shoes like these pumps by Ivanka Trump available at Nordstrom.

Floral prints are springing up on jeans, jackets and tops….even headbands like this tropical style and lots of other super cute “Turband’s” s from cultgaia.com which look great mostly on younger ladies!

Metallic studs, lace and laser cut-outs are popular trends and can make your outfit look new! Gold studs on this Michael Kors small shoulder bag from Macy’s are a perfect accent and transform even a simple outfit.

Add a new top with laser cuts from Tibi to your Spring wardrobe for a modern twist. Wear it with jeans for a night out with the girls or with a skirt for the office. Layer on a jacket for those cool Spring mornings and nights!

Have FUN this SPRING and just try something a little bit different than you always wear. You might like it!

Nautical Style for Spring

Do you feel like a walking “what not to wear” casualty…. in need of a style make-over?

One of the latest trends for Spring you can feel safe with is the nautical look! This trend works well within any budget, and at any age or body type. Nauticals can be found in the smallest detail of accessories or an entire outfit of stripes or polka dots like this fun and comfortable dress made by Vineyard Vines from their newly launched Kentucky
Derby Collection, which was featured in the May issue of In Style magazine, or this great maxi skirt by Ralph Lauren sold at Dillard’s!

 

 

Pair a striped top from Banana Republic with your crisp white linen pants or go bold with a bright colored denim…..

then add a fun hat like this one from Old Navy!

 

If you want just a touch of the nautical look but don’t feel comfortable in stripes or polka dots, then this bracelet from J. Crew might be just what you’re looking for!

Or maybe this stylish little straw bag from Kate Spade will make you smile! You’ll be in style as you sip your mint julep and cheer on your favorite horse running the Kentucky Derby held on May 5th! Will it be Union Rags, Bodenmeister, Gemologist or another contender in the lead?!! Guess we’ll see…
