Florals for spring: groundbreaking? Hardly. Still, florals are a universally flattering print that will always be a classic. Before we head into the high heats of summer, take advantage of spring’s beautiful weather and get the most out of your floral prints this season. Check out some of my favorite fresh ways to incorporate florals into your wardrobe!
Try one of this year’s hottest trends for an updated floral look.
Finding the perfect spring occasion dress can feel nearly impossible, but Lucy’s small print daisy wrap dress has everything you need.
If a floral print is too girly for you, look for a piece that has edgier details, like this sheer crop top with a modern embroidered applique.
If your style is a bit more minimalistic, add a floral pop in your shoes, bag, or jewelry.
Dare to be bold and mix together different floral prints, like Maria did in her playful outfit above.
Patch It Up
Breathe some new life into your old denim pieces by adding floral patches.
I absolutely love a rich, dark floral print—like the one in Blair’s jumpsuit—as opposed to the usual, more expected bright colors you see in spring.
With Daylight Saving, rising temperatures, and the sun shining just a bit brighter each day, it’s clear that spring has arrived. That means it’s time to shed those layers and break out your warm weather clothes! Some trends I’m looking forward to seeing are statement sleeves, short heels and flats, full midi skirts, and lots and lots of vibrant colors. To help inspire your style this new season, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite blogger looks I’ve seen this week that epitomize spring style.
Grasie’s top and skirt set just screams “Spring is here!” I am in love with how the coral in the floral print matches her mini bag and lip color.
Andy’s outfit may be from last spring, but it is just as trendy and current today. Her crisp off-the-shoulder blouse with tie detail is the perfect statement to add to your wardrobe and remix throughout the season.
Krystal takes on a ladylike spring look in her midi skirt and slingbacks, two of the season’s biggest trends.
Talisa is casual-chic in her midi skirt and sneakers—two easy-to-wear pieces that may just become your spring uniform!
I am completely envious of Lisa’s wide leg, ruffled ankle pants. They are perfect for spring and can be remixed endlessly into summer!
A spring closet essential: an easy and effortless dress like Natalie‘s that you can throw on for all those spring brunches with your girlfriends!
Blair‘s spring dress is another that can easily be worn multiple ways; belt it, wear it as a vest, with heels or flats, or over jeans.
’80s trends are coming back in a big way this year! The one we’re highlighting today is fishnet stockings, which are easier to incorporate into your everyday wardrobe than you may expect. The notion that fishnets are sexually aggressive or punk and goth in style is fading fast, and today, they’re an edgy style statement that can be paired with so much of your current wardrobe. Take a look at some of my favorite ways to wear fishnets this season!
1. Under Denim
For a fresh, modern way to incorporate fishnets into your wardrobe, layer them under your distressed denim or have then peek out from the top or bottom of your favorite pair of relaxed bottoms.
2. Fishnet Socks
Wear a pair of delicate fishnet socks with your favorite shoes to add a little bit of edge to your outfit.
3. Under a Dress or Skirt
Offset the femininity of a dress or skirt by pairing it with fishnet stockings.
4. Dress Them Down
To offset the generalized sexual stigma of fishnets, keep your outfit minimal and somewhat casual.
When it comes to fashion, knowing your brands is key, especially if you’re shopping at Crossroads. Having knowledge of high-end fashion brands will help you out tremendously. The first three places I look when I walk into Crossroads are the designer fashion racks, the consignment items behind the registers, and the clothes hanging on the walls above the racks.
Some of the name brands I’ve found over the past year include: Off-White, Bape, Maison Martin Margiela, Kenzo Paris, Burberry, Versace, Rag & Bone, Vince, Joe’s Jeans, Massimo Dutti, and Billionaire Boys Club. That’s not even including everything I’ve seen that doesn’t fit me! If you see a basic item priced higher than you’d expect, there’s typically a good reason behind it. You can buy quality brands for 50-80% off that are gently used.
If you’re just starting to get into fashion, I’d recommend following some fashion Instagram accounts for inspiration. Here are some that I follow:
