This weather is becoming more bi-polar as the month progresses and you’re anxious, I’m anxious We’re All Anxious – to break out the Spring looks for a pick me up like no other. We have the tips for you that’ll put you ahead of the springwear curve. Find out what Spring looks you can buy now and wear now (no 75-degree weather required.)
White out. White is the biggest color trend on the runways for spring, and it’s all about wearing it in an elegant, pared down, modern way. Calvin Klein best showed off the new way of wearing white with a less-is-more attitude and the focus on fit and sophistication. Thakoon showed his white with a groovy-girl edge, which, although still sharp, gave it more of the youth quake his customers love.
Go big with wide-leg pants. They come in a variety of waist heights, from super-high ’70s to lower-slung and can be worn now — providing the streets are slush free — with a high-heel ankle boot and chunky turtleneck or a tailored button-down and wool blazer.
A ruffle a day keeps the doctor away. Many mass retailers like Talbots, Ann Taylor and J. Crew have loads of great ruffled shirts this spring, whether it’s a ruffle chambray tank or the ruffles on your tiered skirt, a little ruffle goes a long way and sweetens up everything you wear. I pair spring’s ruffles right now under my most masculine suits and boyfriend cardies. It makes even the most casual clothes in my closet seem supersexy.
Warm up short, cutesy spring dresses. They look great even now with woolly tights, boots and an oversize cardigan or blazer.
Time for a peep show. Some of spring’s sexiest shoes are peep-toes with a wedge heel, so if showing your toes is a scare, then dare to wear your peep-toes with a shear or opaque stocking or even a fun-colored sock.
Just add black. Wear all those colorful spring dresses you see in stores now by wearing them with black opaque stockings. The look is graphic, cool and perfect for now.
