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!

Lace is the It for Summer!

   You’ll find LACE On Everything!!!

Lace has been around for hundreds of years, but is more popular than ever before on clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories. There are lots of varieties of lace; eyelet, crochet, Battenburg, and many others. Designers from Zara and Anthropologie to Dior and Valentino have added it to their summer styles.

 How do you add LACE to your summer wardrobe?!! Keep the rest of your outfit simple and neutral and then add solid accessories to complete your look. Or, keep it super simple like Rachel McAdams seen here in a gorgeous black and nude lace dress.

You can be casual with LACE wearing a crocheted tunic like this one from Neiman Marcus, and it’s 30% off right now. Tory Burch.com.

Zara, in Lenox Mall has several lace pieces including a mini skirt shown here and a pencil skirt style more appropriate for the office. Want to add a little lace to your wardrobe but not a lot? A tank like this one from Macy’s might be the perfect style! Can’t get enough lace?!!
