Continuing my Favorite Spring Trends for 2012... See last week's trend HERE!
I am all over the global inspired looks from, pretty embroidered peasant tops, to layered bangles, to Ikat print. This is a trend is available every where and at every price point!!
So whether your a Target shopper a Neiman Marcus shopper or any where in between,
you can make this look work for you!
This trend works for every style as well.
Here are some ways to incorporate this look into your life,
I once again showed you how to interpret the trend based on the looks I covered in The Spring Look Book....
Hi Jennifer! Been wondering something and, as a big fan/follower, I thought I'd ask you...in case you're looking for blog ideas.
Like so many, I can be kinda' hard on myself. I expect every piece of clothing I chose to be perfect. I have big expectations. In reality, I'd say for about every 3 pieces of clothing I purchase: one becomes a workhorse/favorite - everything I wanted from it, one ends up functional but not something I regret not having bought multiples of, and one ends up not living up to the potential I thought it had.
I probably have my expectations too high to expect every purchase to be a home run but I do have that expectation. I'm pretty sure I'm going to pick up the pomegranate pink cardigan from Gap that you just featured. Gotta' get to the store to try it on. That color (which is usually a good one for me) would work so many ways with what I already have...at least I think ;-)
What are your thoughts? Should EVERY piece turn out to be a treasure. Or is that too high a bar to set?
As promised I will be sharing my favorite spring trends with you all!
The first Spring Trend that is EVERYWHERE is colorful pants.
Now here are some rules...
1. They come in skinny, trouser and straight cuts.
Be sure to wear the cut that flatters your body, just because you want the trend doesn't mean you should ignore your body type....
2. You don't have to be skinny to wear this trend. Anyone can wear it!
3. Red is a safe color for fashion 101.. you will not look like your trying too hard!
4. If you want you could also try this trend in a skirt or shorts.
The following outfits are done with each of the looks from the Spring Look Book !
SO which ever look is "you" I a showing you a way to wear it and you'll be able to add these trends to your wardrobe, along with the basics I covered in the look book.
This is the proper way to wear trends, with your personal style!
This will prevent you from looking like a fashion victim ;)
When putting together the Spring Look Book 2012, I decided to change the format.
I can't wait to hear your thoughts and feedback.
In seasons/years past I have featured trends in these books.
This season I decided to feature classic looks instead.
So this SLB will be timeless...
In this SLB I explain:
Four classic looks
The pieces you should have in your closet to emulate these looks
and a fun new feature, a cocktail recipe for each look!
The Looks I am featuring this season are...
The Modern Day Audrey
The Paris Wife
Palm Beach Chic
When you click to purchase allow time for Paypal to redirect you to a pop-up window, that is the book, download it from that window! All the items in the SLB are linked and by clicking on the image on the wardrobe essentials page you will be taken directly to the item ( if it is still available) ! If you don't get the book please email me, I have no way of knowing otherwise :)
I will feature my favorite Spring Trends, I will just do it right here on the blog!
I will write a weekly or bi weekly "Spring Trend" feature.
AK requested 3 Virtual Outfits, Super-sized...
She needed to feel pulled together yet comfy (a VERY common request)!
AK is the PTA president at her school ( bless her <3).
So she wants to look like she put effort into her appearance,
yet doesn't have a need to "dress -up" for her day to day life!
She loves heels but said they aren't practical for everyday...
So this is what I have to say to that, almost everyone can wear a LITTLE heel or wedge,
for day to day. A small wedge (see below) is just as comfy as a flat!
Her body type is hourglass so she has a chest and hips.
That is why I selected all V-Necks, Scoop Necks and Bootcut Pants!
The Spring Look Book should be ready tonight!!
So be sure to check back tomorrow morning!
