OutFit: Spring trends
If you are looking forward to warmer temperatures and spring styles, you won’t be disappointed. This season’s fashions are guaranteed to brighten your spirits and your wardrobe. Here are a few of the most wearable trends:
■ Statement sunglasses — Inexpensive and fun, sunglasses are out in bright colors and outrageous shapes, making it difficult to decide on just one pair.
■ Bold patterns — Stripes, polka dots and checkerboard patterns make outfits look crisp and modern.
■ Shorts suits — Blending both masculine and feminine, a shorts suit (shorts and jacket) is versatile and office ready.
■ Low heels — Pointy toes and kitten heels are back. Wear them with shorts or boyfriend jeans for a casual look, or pair with a ‘50s style dress for a retro glam ensemble.
■ Sheer material — A sexier look that can be toned down by layering.
■ Sporty dress — A refreshing silhouette that works on most every body type. It’s fitted on top but with a flirty a-line skirt.
■ Bermuda shorts — This longer style is also a little slouchy for spring. These shorts can be worn so many different ways making them a must-have addition to every wardrobe.
