With spring here, Florida is home to some beautiful weather. Time to tuck away the last of the winter clothing and add some new fashions to our closets! While the fall weather emphasized rich, jewel tones, spring is attracting softer looks, playing up the pastel color palette, mixing textured laces and various striped designs, and emphasizing splashes of bold, floral patterns. With a pronounced, feminine flair, ladies should definitely update their wardrobe for some chic looks! Check out some spring favorites found below:
Forever 21: This mesh eyelet skirt is the perfect example of young femininity! The eyelet pattern isn’t overdone and depicts a lighter look for spring. The peach hue featured in the picture is great for any skin-tone, adding a hint of pastel that will surely make your outfit pop. You might want to pair this skirt with a crisp, white shirt for a fresh look! At $19.80, Forever 21 offers you the latest fashions for a price that won’t break the bank.
Ann Taylor LOFT: Mature women should definitely experiment with textures and colors. That’s why this sequined top is a unique combination of texture and color! The sequins allow the top dimension and its coral color adds a neon tone that isn’t overwhelming. The lace overlay adds a soft touch, making the overall tank delicate but trendy. Pair this top with a cropped pair of pants and a light jacket for a look that screams spring!
Dillard’s: Maybe you’re looking for that soft, billowing look seen so often on the models in magazines? You’re in luck! Cremieux’s line at Dillard’s offers styles appropriate for women of any age group while bringing in a line of clothing for spring that is pure elegance. This A-line skirt is light and airy, featuring a horizontal striped pattern in a pretty pastel blue. What really makes us love the skirt? The length is appropriate for any occasion! Feel free to dress up the skirt with a pair of pumps and big accessories or pair with a pastel shirt and ballet flats for a girlish, outdoors flair. Either way, you’re sure to have a picture perfect moment in the wind with this skirt billowing in your style!
Macy’s: Lace is fabric that is truly timeless and resurfaces no matter what season! Probably the safest pattern and texture to play with, it never hurts to add a lace piece to your wardrobe. DKNY brings spring to this lace dress by simply addressing the color. The “Bloom” hue featured mixes the orange and red color palettes with perfection and is dainty enough for any formal spring occasion. Can you say garden party? Wear with a neutral pair of pumps for a daytime look or for an evening out, exchange the pumps for a strappy pair of black heels and add a clutch for that touch of glamor.
American Eagle: Ditch those black pants in the back of your closet and break out the lighter colors for spring! When considering pants for this season, think lighter or brighter colors. Since a lighter pant is always likely to stay in fashion, aim for pants that look like the one featured on American Eagle’s website. This khaki pant is slightly embroidered to add texture, now trending in spring fashion, and can be paired with almost any blouse, giving you countless wardrobe options and making it a true bargain. Oh, by the way, did you notice the sale price? What a steal. People always think the latest trends are on the mannequins but if you search, they can be found in the sales rack too! The trick? Pay attention to the current trends (i.e. textures, patterns, pastels) and have them in mind when shopping in the sales section, always looking for aspects of these trends in the item purchased.
H & M: The clothes at H & M are always adorable, but keep in mind, they also offer amazing accessories at low prices! For $14.95, this ballet flat is a great deal and comes in various shades to suit the taste of any shopper. While the range of colors is certainly a plus, the flats’ true beauty lies in its crochet texture, subtly distinguishing it from the typical ballet flat and adding a touch of vintage that makes it feminine and fun for spring.
