Spring Dress

Accessorize your floral dress for Spring

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.

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.

5 Summer 2015 Trends That You Will Still Be Wearing This Fall

May 26, 2015 by Liza Graves

Flare Jeans

It’s the ’70s thing and also because the fashion gods don’t like us to get too comfy in one style of pants, as then we won’t buy anything, right? So skinnies are starting to meet their match. You can still wear your skinnies, but if you want to be fashion-forward in a way that you will be very mainstream soon, buy some flare jeans. If you feel too old for big flares, just start to embrace the boot cut look again.

Found on LuLu’s.com:

Friends Flare-ever Medium Wash High-Waisted Flare Jeans

  • Price: $78.00

Budget designs on RoseGal.com:

Fashionable Bleach Wash Color Spliced Flare Jeans For Women

Slimming Mid-Waisted Three-Buttons Women's Boot-Cut Jeans

Stylish Mid-Waisted Boot Cut Deep Blue Women's Jeans

The Chunky Heel

Again, it’s the ’70s vibe that just keeps getting stronger and stronger, and the chunky heel is here to stay, at least for a while. Embrace a style that you can get a lot of use from over many seasons. Forgo the platform for a less disco and more mainstream ’70s look.

Fay 1 Fuchsia High Heel Sandals

  • Price: $32.00

Longer Vest

Longer blazers are in for fall, and vests are in for summer. So marry the two and purchase a longer vest to wear now and into the cooler months as well.


Found on LuLu’s.com:

Black Swan Flurry of Fun Brown Faux Fur Vest

  • Price: $72.00

Brown Leather Belt

Just a good, plain, brown leather belt. You can wear it with your jeans, make a dress a bit more casual, wrap it over a blazer/cardigan if you work in an air-conditioned office or just tighten up a fuller blouse. But belts are in, and they are going to stay in.

Buy up your whites, as you’ll be wearing them come fall, as well! Tees, jeans, skirts, jackets … the whole “you really can wear white after Labor Day” thing is finally getting traction.

The Top Fall 2015 Trends From New York Fashion Week

by Hannah Weil McKinley 2/22/15

 The Glamorous Bohemian

This season, the boho vibe draws from the ’70s woman and the modern traveler. The shapes and fabrics are luxe — floaty hemlines, allover print, and embellishments galore.

Found on RoseGal.com:

Slimming Fashionable Style Stripes Round Neck High Waisted Sleeveless Chiffon Bohemian Dress For Women

  • Price: $15.81

Caped Crusader

It makes sense since the fashion crowd has been avoiding their sleeves for seasons now that designers are bypassing them all together with Fall’s caped silhouettes. Some are polished, while others, more statement-making. But regardless of pattern or color, the cut itself was made to catch the eye.

Found on LuLu’s.com

Down the Lane Grey Cape

  • Price: $65.00

Found on RoseGal.com:

Stand Collar Double Breasted Cape Coat For Women

  • Price: $19.36

 On the Fringe

Where we’ve seen fringed details creeping onto bags and shoes since last season, designers are using it much more heavy-handedly come Fall. Look for it giving skirts a sexy, skin-baring effect, upping the ante on evening wear or adding textural intrigue to our favorite knits.

Found on LuLu’s.com:

JOA Road West Tan Fringe Coat

  • Price: $127.00

 Gray Matters

This season’s color takeover was decidedly gray — and we’re not sad about it. The color looks particularly cool in monochromatic schemes — an easy one to pull off head to toe. And while it goes with everything already in your closet, it also helps dial down the sexy vibes of a strapless dress or a fitted sheath, while making sweaters and coats somehow feel even cozier. Now that’s versatility.

So Plaid

Plaid gets a revamp for Fall, making its return on cool-girl coats, trousers, and polished separates. It’s classic with a twist — and in some cases, far more prep-school rebel than schoolgirl uniform.
