Think simple + sleek neutrals at a pretty picnic in a field of fresh grass. A dash of pale blue + a sprinkle of soft pink mimicking our whimsical cotton candy prairie skies. Going forward, dressed as they are, arm in arm, women supporting women, under the warm spring sun.
They are capable of anything!
We talked about it in the last issue and it’s still roarin’ …the key to this trend is keeping it simple + chic. As pictured here, if you’re not feeling too wild try adding a simple accessory like this snake skin belt to a neutral light dress to look effortlessly put together. Or go for the print with a more classic style – like the wrap dress – fit for brunch, lunch, a prairie picnic or just because.
Feminine & Fresh
You know the ever so popular soft pink? Well meet her more sophisticated older sister… Pale blue. Pair it with white wide legged slacks + a funky, velvet, color blocked purse because nothing screams spring quite like this combo. Western meets 80’s chic. We have fringe and we have medium light blue denim with simple seams down the front accessorized with a bold gold earring + a snake skin classic style pump – taking this look from simple to stylish af.
Sleek & Simple
How to wear the monochromatic look? … add interest by choosing pieces with texture like this ultra rich camel set. Yes, I said set, if you don’t have a set it’s time to get one or ask your mom to go to the back of her closet and dust one off for you because baby they’re back and I personally cannot get enough of them.
You can either go with a neutral shoe, staying ultra chic in the monochromatic theme, or add a subtle print or texture in the accessories as seen with this white jumper that fits our girl like a glove.
Editorial Meets Practical
The oversized blazer has been featured since last spring, however each issue we’ve shown a different way to wear it. So if you still have yet to get one, it’s time because this baby is versatile and a classic staple piece to add to your wardrobe. Pictured here is the most high fashion of the ways to wear it; belted with biker shorts. Now if you’re not quite ready for the athleisure biker short look I’ll recap – it can also be worn in a paint suit, as a dress, or paired with your favourite blue jeans. Belts are back and we’re into it so we used them to emphasize our models’ waistlines; one with a classic skinny black belt and the other with an animal print fanny pack.
Mix or Match
The opposite of monochromatic is print on print, we paired a multi patterned blouse with a more simple pattern blazer and accented it by showing only pops of the blouse. Have fun this season: mix patterns and prints or match tone on tone. Play on the wild side with animal print or give your look a pop with colour blocking.
