Fashion | Essential Items For Spring

Fashion // March 10, 2014

Spring will be here before we know it and I can’t think of a better reason to update my wardrobe with a few key pieces. This season is all about metallic, full shirts, leather, wide leg pants, suit shorts and so much more. As with all trends, you want to make sure you are styling yourself according to your body type. Here are a few ideas on how to rock the latest spring trends and pull off a flawless look.


Florals

Florals are no longer exclusively for your grandmother’s frumpy antique prints. From romantic lace, feminine flowers and bold prints, florals are making a statement this season. If you’re not keen on a head to toe floral look, try mixing a flirty full skirt with a solid top or a midi floral top with a solid high waist skirt.




Block heels

Make room stilettos, the block heel has made an appearance. Adding inches without sacrificing comfort, the block heel will be the obsession this spring. The block heel, which was once known as the “old lady” heel, has now evolved into something sleek and stylish. Try this style in sandals, pumps or even flats.




Cat eye makeup

This vintage makeup has reappeared on runways this season. The cat eye is a very versatile makeup look and can be worn with a more casual ponytail or more glammed up look with a high-textured curled look or bone straight hair. This look also affords you the opportunity to go crazy with an over-the-top lid and lip without looking clown-like.





Crop Top

Crop tops will be all the rage this season. Not only does it provide the perfect excuse to hit the gym, but it also allows you to show a bit of skin in an edgy, fashionable way. You can mix and match a crop top with a high waist skirt or jeans or let it all hang out with a maxi or full skirt, shorts or jeans for a great weekend look.




Graphic Prints

Stripes, swirls and dots, oh my! Daring prints are all over the runway this season. Fashion should be fun, so be courageous and mix and match patterns for an outrageously fabulous look. Mixing polka dots and stripes, colossal and mini print or geometric and retro shapes will be one sure way to achieve an eye-popping visual.




Sheer

Donning light, floaty, transparent sheer fabric provides a bit of added sex appeal. The sheer look can be extra sexy, played up for a more casual look or be ultra punk. Be careful to not go too sheer as too much of a good thing can be awful; it’s quite easy to go from classy to trashy with this trend.
