It is, at last, that time of year again. We will rid ourselves of our thick, heavy sweaters, and open our closets to an abundance of fresh colors and accessories! Spring, believe it or not, is actually, finally, here. Spring 2014 is a season filled with my most favorite fashions– ranging from beautiful pastels to gorgeous, classic shades. Today, I’m going to talk all about spring in my new series, Spring Style. Later on, I’ll encompass spring makeup!
1. Skater/Babydoll Dresses
These are definitely taking over all stores with spring merchandise! I’ve spotted these at PacSun (my go-to spring/summer store), Forever 21, Nordstrom, Abercombie, and everywhere else. I’ve totally been loving this trend, because not only are skater/babydoll dresses insanely comfortable and easy to style, but they come in the most amazing colors and prints.
I love this one from PacSun because of the light, pretty color, the floral print (always in!), and the unique waist cutouts. You can style however you’d like– and I think this one would particularly go well with some gold midi-rings and a few thin gold layered necklaces.
For those a bit more daring, this dress, also from PacSun, has a low cutout back with a simple black and white floral print. The fit n’ flare style accents your waist quite nicely, and flatters anyone’s shape.
2. Floral Prints
The floral print always seems to greet us around springtime, but it has made an appearance this spring in particular. There’s a bunch of cute floral tops, cardigans, and even shades that you can pick up for cheap at Forever 21.
This floral tank from Forever 21 is adorable, and casual for a warm spring day. I especially love the flowy, loose bottom to the tank.
Floral crop tops are among one of the most worn pieces so far this spring, and look cute with a pair of shorts.
Who says that we must stick to plain, boring denim shorts? This spring is all about fun patterns and edgy accessories, and this applies to shorts. There’s a million pairs out there, ranging from black leather to lace shorts. When paired with a simple crop top or tee, the shorts really stand out. Here are a few versatile shorts that I like.
The sun shines bright, and we need the ultimate protection. Sunglasses can be an amazing fashion statement, and fashion icons (Audrey Hepburn, for instance) have been embracing large, classic sunglasses since the beginning of the fashion era. Depending on your style, always complete your spring outfit with the number one spring accessory!
I was recently e-mailed by a viewer about Warby Parker, a sunglass shade company. If you have very sensitive eyes or wear glasses, this company puts in your prescription lenses, which I think is pretty cool. They also carry a wide variety of sunglass styles and color shades, so you can browse through a larger collection.
For spring, I like having a pair of good, basic sunglasses. These ones are from Wildfox, and although they are a bit pricey (I’ve been saving up!) it’s totally worth it. They are all so adorable!
I also like having a ton of fun, inexpensive pairs! I visit Forever 21 for this particular mission, and go crazy.
