We finally had our first taste of spring, and that means it’s time to bring some warm weather pieces into the mix. I started my spring shopping not too long ago (I couldn’t resist!), and noticed that Cynthia Rowley had some seriously amazing pieces in their spring collection. I wore this great piece today on WCIU, and this fabulous flounce dress last week! I’ve picked my top three trends for the season, complete with some of my favorite pieces from the collection, and added some helpful tips so you can get the look yourself!
Slouch Pant – Arm Bands – Dress
I love this look, comfy yet totally cool! The key to this trend is making sure you don’t look like you just left the gym. If your pants are more casual, make sure your t-shirt or sweatshirt has some embellishment to elevate the look. Flats could easily be a bit too casual for this trend, so pair the look with a great heel. If you’re not sure this trend is for you, throw on an accessory (like a wristband) and give it a go!
Shift Dress – Midi Skirt – Flounce Blouse
This trend is great because it is so versatile! You can test it out by incorporating some graphics into your look, like a delicate floral or a well-placed stripe or two (stick to vertical!). A dose of a graphic print is a good way to rock the trend if you’re still feeling it out. If you choose to give all white a try, know that it can be tricky. Make sure the pieces you choose are well-tailored, this goes for both dresses and separates. No matter how you choose to wear the trend, remember not to over accessorize! Let the impact of these two colors do the talking, keep it simple!
Dress – Leggings – Lei Top
New to print? Don’t worry! Try pants or a skirt in a graphic with a simple top. Just make sure to keep the pieces fitted. A loud print on a loosely fitting garment can be overwhelming for anyone. If you want to mix prints, just be sure to keep the prints proportional, and in the same color family. Look for pieces in a collection that are meant to be mixed & matched. It takes some of the guesswork out of it!
