Culottes Trend

Remember when culottes were a staple in every woman’s wardrobe?  Combining the functionality and comfort of slacks or shorts with the feminine look of a skirt, it makes you wonder why they lost favor in the fashion world.  Let’s check out this new “old” trend.

How to wear

From street style stars to A-listers, everyone seems to have jumped aboard the culottes train, making them an “It” silhouette for all seasons. Still, something about voluminous short pants—also known as gauchos—doesn’t exactly scream wearable and flattering to a lot of women.

Accessorize your floral dress for Spring

We’ve all seen it;  a cute flowery Spring dress worn with sneakers or bland sandals and a handbag holdover from the Winter months.  Don’t sell your lovely floral print spring dress short – accessorize with a lovely scarf, shoes, and a handbag to achieve a carefree but polished look – a bit of fun with attention to detail can make a just the right statement this time of year.

The big trend in denim pants is ankle scraping flares with high waists – kind of  a 70’s / 80’s fusion:

Kimono Trend for Spring

Spring is fast approaching – time to break out those flattering loose fitting kimonos

Kimonos were trending last year and look to be just as huge in 2016.  Their lovely flowing lines are a natural fit for the 70’s style invasion with flared legs and chunky heels.

Denim Trend: Black Jeans

Black jeans are an absolute staple item – great with a sweater or blouse on “Casual Friday” at work, or with a sweatshirt for a trip to the grocery. Plus they are black – so they go with everything. I’m one of those people whose closet would be near empty if all the black clothing were removed. Did I mention that they are black?

Cropped Flares

Can you pull off the trending cropped flares?

I have to admit that I don’t quite have the figure for this look – being on the curvy side and of limited stature, this look just doesn’t do me justice. That is not to say that they don’t flatter some figure types.  Make sure to “own” this look – make it a deliberate statement and pair them with just the right heel.
