Fresh #1: Bootcut, baby.Yep. Dust off (literally) your bootcut jeans. The long and lean look is so now. Dark rinse is a classic, but all washes are game. However, leave the distressed-vintage and stone-washes for your skinnies. Pair with a ponte knit nautical blazer, a lacey, loose-fitting blouse, patent oxfords and a brightly-colored crossbody bag. Red lips too.
Fresh #2: Floral, momma.Seek out 1 floral piece: the blazer or the pant. Pair with anything neutral and ta-da, magic! Blazers with a plain white or grey t-shirt, flared blue jeans and tan wedged booties. Pants look best in a skinny/slim leg with a white button-down, cropped sweater and a spiked necklace.
Fresh #3: Black & White and Silver all over.One of spring’s biggest trends is “black and white” graphics. Try a striped shift dress with tights and flat riding boots or a white blazer with black skinnies and a black t-shirt underneath. White pants with a black stripe is another fun idea. Silver belt, pumps or pointy flats a must.
Fresh #4: Cardigan and again.Patterned cardigans are back. Instead of long, go cropped and boxy. Pair with a complimentary printed blouse, slim riding pants or boyfriend jeans and wedge heals. This also works with a flared skirt or wrap dress. Add some arrow-inspired dangles or studs to top it off.
Fresh #5: Pastel party.If you want just one trend, go "pastel" anything. Nails, tops, pants, scarves, bags, whatever. Lilac, peach, and mint are just a few new that rock. Go further and pair these sweethearts with distressed, light-blue jeans for a modern take.
The above looks have a piece or two in your current wardrobe. Just add small touches where needed. Feeling fresh already. Style on.
