What says springtime better than the colorful, dancing movement of pleats? This season, everyone from Azzedine Alaia to A New Day, to Chanel is featuring pleats for spring, and it’s not hard to see why! The basic pleated skirt in a longer length looks great with a vintage band tee knotted at the waist for a casual outing. The same piece also looks wonderful when worn with a classic sandal and a spaghetti strap camisole accented with your best diamond jewels for dinner. Comfortable, and non-binding, pleats are also wonderful travel garments. This season’s items withstand sitting for long periods without so much as a single wrinkle. With an item so versatile, comfortable, on trend, cool and downright stylish, why not channel your inner Marilyn and opt for one of these gorgeous skirts as you spin through spring?
With the crisp and breezy days of spring upon us, we find ourselves wrapping our sweaters up and packing them in cedar chests. The excitement of a new season, and a new wardrobe, is palpable in the air. There are four wardrobe elements that you must have as you dive headfirst into the warm weather.
1.) Cute, Casual Dresses
These are the easiest to thrown on to go to the mall, put over a swimsuit for a visit to the pool, or to run out to dinner. It’s an instant outfit, it’s fast and simple and always looks good. Luckily, with retailers like Old Navy, ASOS, and Shein, you can find tons of these under 20.00.
2.) Something Polka Dotted
Polka dots are everywhere! From the finest couture collections to Target to middle of the road ready to wear, it’s one of this season’s hottest trends. Don’t go dotty with head to toe dots, but instead invest in something you can wear next year too. A pair of cute shorts, a sash belt you can wear with many things, or a cute off the shoulder top will Keep you on trend. This brings me to my next must have…
3.) Off the shoulder top
This is the top of the season. In fact, this is the silhouette of the season. Dresses, tops and jumpsuits all have this neckline. The off the shoulder top will look outstanding with jeans, cut offs, minis and skinny pants. It’s a romantic, cute, and oh so stylish look.
4.) White denim
Whats crisper and looks better with a tan than a white denim mini? White denim skinnies look hot with halters, tanks, and button down shirts tied in front. A cute pair of daisy duke cut-offs in white is about as sexy as it gets.
Yay for spring!
