Let's Hear it for the Boys

How can I not be reminded of my early childhood years when I think of some bad fashion sense? The late '80s/early '90s were not exactly known as sophisticated or chic periods of time. Although those shoulder pads were hip and happenin' at the time, it takes at least twenty years for a trend to recycle. Too much teasing, blue eye shadow and worst of all, bad denim.

With a fresh surge of creativity this season, we all want to know how to work the latest accessory or make a new fashion statement. Well it does not take too much looking to find the answer.

Spring might be tempting to cast off your outerwear, but not just yet. Bring out that old jean jacket and make it new again.

This Fashionista caught my attention in her informal, trendy attire. Times have changed since a jean jacket was only a mere after-thought when your Mom thought it was chilly outside. These days it provides infinite variations to an outfit.

The one seen here can be found at Gap, but they are truly popping up everywhere. Every shade and wash has their place in fashion this spring.

Pair it with a higher waistline trouser and tank for a relaxed weekend feel. Or experiment with colorblocking, a huge trend, with a bold Starburst-inspired jean jacket.

Finding this marvelous mint green scarf on a New York City sidewalk, it is a playful pop to her cloudy Monday morning lecture class. Just a touch of mint on a bracelet, nail polish or headband is a festive nod to fashion.

Put a sparkle in your step with these silver TOMS shoes and you are on your way to a wonderful week ahead.
