Hello Dolls,

Spring is officially here! It’s a season for light-weight fabrics, fun prints, pastels, and an overall laid-back style of dressing, but why stop at the typical, warm-weather basics? The best part of a new season is incorporating your own style and personality in a new season’s trend. I’ve listed a few new essentials to replaced those passé spring basics so that you can stand-out in the crowd during your next springtime festivity!

Instead of a sundress…

Try a Maxi Kimono

Flattering on most body types, the kimono dress is a step-up from the typical wrap dress. Try it in fun florals, vibrant metallics, or elegant pastels to make a winning impression.

Instead of flat sandals…

Try a pair of on-trend sneakers

It’s no secret that the fashion sneaker is a essential part of athleisure but it’s also a great way to dress down a summer dress. Click here to see the many ways to style this shoe.

Instead of a cardigan…

Try a duster blazer

This an excellent way to warm up a pair of cut-offs and tank or give your office-ensemble a cool, effortless twist.

Instead of the pencil pant…

Try a wide-legged pant or jumpsuit

Whether its an Olivia Pope-inspired pant or a flowy palazzo, you’re bound to feel fierce and unstoppable in spring’s version of power-dressing.

Instead of wedges…

Try an ankle-strap block heel

Keep the height and the comfort. This is certainly a more feminine, elevated alternative to the wedged espadrille, and it’s the perfect way to add a pop color or print to a simple and solid dress.
