There have been promising signs that the economy is on the upswing. Subtle indicators like people opting for dessert and ordering venti lattes are just to name a few. This is great news! With consumer confidence at a three year high, how will you be updating your Spring wardrobe?
To reduce your trend overload, I have put together a condensed list of my 5 irresistible Spring selections. Once you’ve had your fill of the essentials, you can always mix and match your existing pieces with your revolutionary new finds. Knowing what to look for is key. It will save you time, take the thinking out of shopping and allow you to pick out what looks fabulous on you.
Getting new shoes can be intoxicating, but deciding which pair to buy can often make your head spin. This Spring reveals a few oldies but goodies. Say hello to the classic pointy toe pump. Although this shoe comes in a myriad of colors, you can never go wrong with the color black. For starters, it is looks irresistible on the foot, it elongates your legs and not enough can be said about the toe cleavage it creates. This pump is super versatile, looks amazing paired with jeans and goes perfectly with any length dress.
Once you’ve committed to a pointy toe shoe, all you’ll need to decide is the height of the heel. And for anyone lucky enough to have held on to their pointy toe shoes from the past seasons, this is your chance to dust them off and flaunt them with a fantastic Spring outfit.
Cream of the Crop
Enhancing your wardrobe this Spring doesn’t have to mean depleting your bank account. Invest in a pair of white cropped jeans and get one step closer to acquiring your Spring staples. Designers like J Brand, 7 For All Mankind and AG Jeans fit like a glove and will seamlessly transition you into Spring.
This purchase shouldn’t cost you more than $200. Just keep in mind that these jeans should be skinny and cropped. Feel great in your new jeans which will show off your ankles and look ultra sexy both with heels and flats. You can also play around with the various looks by dressing these fabulous jeans up with a blazer or dress them down with a tee. Whatever you do, challenge yourself to make them look different every time you wear them.
Unforgettable prints are the perfect balance of feminine and chic. Since floral prints and sheer fabrics are two leading trends for the Spring, this airy and diaphanous blouse is a piece that will give you the best of both worlds. I consider the floral sheer blouse the ultimate Spring must-have. It has a fresh and hip look, perfect for the warmer months and the romantic effect of the flowers adds to it’s understated appeal. Don this sensual garment by finding the perfect one for you.
A true must-have this Spring is a nude maxi dress. It is a flowy, bohemian wearable work of art and is the epitome of comfort. If you’re particularly interested in buying from boho clothing stores, BitterSweet has some great styles that are sure to entice even the most bohemian amongst us! My #1 pick for a nude maxi this season is the Halston Heritage Pleated Chiffon dress. This is the nude version of the dress Carrie wore in SATC 2. From the moment you put it on, you will instantly appreciate the balance between it’s length and color. Since long is the new short, the best part about this lovely pleated number is that you can wear it in a casual way. This dress literally comes alive when you wear it and the color “Rose Gold” has the perfect tone that will not compete with your complexion.
Indulge in the many fabrics that the maxis are available in this Spring. Touch and feel the luscious chiffons and the rich silks. The good news is that there are many versions of this romantic nude maxi just in time for the Spring and you can wear it for any occasion. Dress it up with chandelier earrings and high heel shoes to achieve an evening look or throw on a pair of gladiator sandals for a more casual look. This dress will magically transform you into a Goddess with it’s ethereal 1920’s silhouette.
Sailor trousers are oh “so in” for the Spring. They come in luxe textiles, denim and even linen. Find ones that fit your shape and style. They are fantastic because they are super functional and you can wear them with multiple things that you already own.
Incorporate them with a tank and a scarf, a blouse or with a Spring jacket. The possibilities are infinite. Plus, they look fabulous with heels, making your legs look endless. Don’t get me wrong, regular jeans are great, but the sailor trouser is a hip and fun alternative.
Always choose what looks great on you and transition into the Spring in style. Happy shopping ladies.
