STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hopping Down The Fashion Trail

PEEPS blink their candy eyes on grocery store endcaps, cotton-colored skirts frequent favorite brunch hotspots and bright plastic eggs litter the lawns of suburbia. This can only mean one thing. Ladies and gentlemen, spring has sprung. In celebration, I urge you to break out the pastels, florals and polka-dots. Like this Fashionista, the best way to ring in the season of tulips, daisies and daffodils is to incorporate the flowers’ fresh, dewy shades into your wardrobe.

In the spirit of spring, this Fashionista rocks a sweet, warm weather combo, ideal for a day out on the town. On top, she sports a simple white crop, with a lovely neckline—a staple I recommend everyone pick up on your next shopping trip. She pairs it with a pleated, pink maxi to show off her glowing legs, as well as her industrial-esque sandals. The cut reveals a touch of skin in a tasteful manner, similar to the way in which her halter gives off a bit between its end and the skirt’s hem. As the temperature rises, this silhouette is perfect for keeping cool with a sophisticated edge. A touch of gold on her wrist extends her outfits gentleness, as the metallic curves mimic her Free People flow. With mermaid waves and a dash of mascara, this beauty looks straight out of a summer spread in Allure magazine.

I dare you to shift from wooly, wintery textures to a soft, spring palette to kick off the countdown to summer. Say goodbye to cocoa and cold. Trade in your favorite booties for these adorable Seychelles sandals. Bare your belly-button in this bohemian crop. Be bold! Now more than ever is a time to test the waters and take wild, fashion risks.
