Spring Fashion for the Rest of US!

I’ll be the first to admit that after researching the 2018 Spring/Summer trends, a lot of it looked a little “out there”!  Like costumes or fashion that you would only see on a runway model. If you viewed any of the runway shows online, you may be feeling intimidated or it may even make you want to give up on updating your wardrobe altogether. So I wanted to give you some ideas that may feel a little more realistic for your lifestyle so you can go into spring with confidence instead of dread.
Adding a few new things to your wardrobe can really make you feel refreshed and rejuvenated for spring so I’ve created a list of things to avoid that are over the top with things to try that are better suited for the rest of us not on the runway or on the pages of a style magazine.

Navigating Spring Fashion Trends

Avoid: The plastic boots (really?? what a strange concept!) 
Try: An open toe bootie or a lace up bootie

Avoid: The large logo branded shirt
Try: The smart looking tailored or creatively cut white shirt
Avoid: The multi-multi-layered look, i.e. dress over blouse over pant plus a jacket
Try: Two layers or a one-piece jumpsuit layered with a fun necklace
Avoid: Layered multi chokers
Try: Layered pearl necklaces
Avoid: Oversized multi-patterned and multi-colored pantsuit
Try: Mixing prints with two items, i.e. a navy/white stripe cardi and navy/white polka dot top
Avoid: The corset belt
Try: Skinny leather belt or multi skinny belts intertwined
Avoid: Socks with heeled sandals
Try: Oxfords, wrapped sandals, or fun pair sneakers
Avoid: Large logo purse or clear rubber purse
Try: Large tote or a fun fanny pack or belt purse…yes! they are back. 
Avoid: Cartoon prints
Try: Floral prints or black and white polka dots
Avoid: A slip dress as it’s not age appropriate for most of us and looks best on a model
Try: A fun shirtdress, a maxi skirt, or even some palazzo pants
Avoid: The turban hat
Try: Straw floppy hat with sun protection
Avoid: Heart and crazy shaped sunglasses
Try: Aviator sunglasses
Avoid: Splatter paint denim
Try: Dark denim with a fringe hem, or denim with applique

Avoid: A dress with feathers
Try: A dress or fun top with ruching or an Asymmetrical neckline
Avoid: See-through plastic garments or exposed undergarments
Try: Garments made from silk, linen, cotton, or blends; OR try the all white ensemble
Does this still seem challenging? Trust me, there is great fashion that will suit you perfectly and raise your spirits and confidence. I’d love to help you find it!
