Baseball cap

The humble ball cap is having a fashion moment.  Hats in general are pretty fabulous this season and last and are the perfect (ahem) topper to your casual combinations.  They key is of course juxtaposition.  No, of course you aren’t surprised.  So, opt for a more dressed up combination to take your cap in a different direction than the sidelines on the gym.

Sneakers

Comfort and fashion rarely go hand in hand. The surprising truth about this spring 2013 fan favorites is that comfort is having a moment.  The sneaker, first high fashion in its wedge form thanks to cool girl queen of design Isabel Marant, has taken a sportier turn on the feet of street style darlings.  Easy to work with a luxe pair of bright slacks, a flirty skirt or a tailored short suit, bright colored or boldly printed kicks have major fashion cred.

The Full Midi skirt

Not mini, not maxi, but not necessarily mid-calf in length, this feminine, flirty silhouette retains a strong place in the fashion firmament this season.  Best when worn with heels and a fitted top, knee length variations get a dose of Roman Holiday cool when paired with strappy sandals.  They also pair perfectly with a pixie crop.

Flares

 

Finally, because warm weather calls for bohemian overtones, the skinny, body-hugging flare is almost an homage to spring, casual cool. When paired with a slouchy tank and your favorite wedges, you get legs for days and a gypset mindset.  Try them in a lighter wash to match the soft palette of spring.
