This spring, I wanted to create outfit inspirations that will work for every body. A lot of the ideas came from my own closet, ensembles coveted from people I have met, know, or have seen on the world wide web, or ideas I have gathered outside of my 5" screen. Here is a look at my Spring 2016 Collection, created just for you, with our curves in mind.
Must Haves: A great pair of ponte knit pants and a blushing trench.
Why I love it: Ponte knit is perfect for when you need a clean and tailored look and finishes off every outfit. It can turn a casual outfit into a more sophisticated and professional ensemble, or it can even be super sexy when paired with the perfect shoe and accessories. The trench's structured and tailored lines offer sophistication while lending the perfect amount of color without too much commitment.
Must Haves: Chiffon dress, vibrant clutch, cork sole heels
Why I love it: Chiffon is the perfect material to accentuate all your curves but is also great for when you need conceal all the areas you want to hide. The pleats in this dress are my favorite part about the outfit--they are so pretty and with the different color on the inside of the pleat, it gives us a little element of surprise and lets you play around with color in an interesting way. The vibrant clutch is also a fun accessory and allows you more freedom to easily experiment with styles and colors. The cork sole heels are great because there is an unusual textural difference that gives the dress more edge but still is a beautiful addition and keeps it flirty and feminine.
Must Haves: "Boyfriend" jeans
Why I love it: Boyfriend jeans are one of my favorite styles of denim. They can be worn on the looser side with sandals like the ones pictured above or some cool kicks and a great blazer, finished off with a great bag and nude lippy. Or they can be worn on the tighter side and worn with some kitten heels, a great button down or vintage t-shirt for a sexy, edgy vibe. So versatile and so comfy.
Must Haves: Chambray t-shirt dress
Why I love it: Chambray, bay-bay! (Okay sorry, I was trying to rhyme and sound cool, but that was a horrific attempt and I succumb to my failures.) Denim t-shirt dress, need I say more? How freaking cute is this?! Paired with Converse, your work out sneakers, wedges, boots... anything really, and you have yourself a damn good-looking outfit with minimal effort. Perfect for the transition from Winter-to-Spring-to-Summer. Love.
Must Haves: Knitted sweater skirt
Why I love it: Okay, you may be asking yourself "A knitted sweater skirt for Spring?" YES. Yes, yes and more yes. Because this is a chunky, heavy looking garment, you have to balance it out with something light on the top and the bottom. This great sleeveless button down blouse and great strappy heel are the perfect examples. There is an interesting contrast here but it works. And you can take the skirt into the colder months too, with some great tights, knee-high boots and a great jacket or blazer, and boom! Re-purposing your closet like a pro!
Must Haves: Duster and floral heels
Why I love it: This duster and these heels are EV-ER-RY-THING! Can you read the excitement right now? The duster is so cute and perfect for the spring. It is light weight and easy, but still makes other people think you took the time to wake up and get dressed. But the heels...c'mon! These are the show-stoppers here. They literally say "SPRING". With the amount of colors in the shoe, you can practically wear them with anything!
Must Haves: White dress
Why I love it: Okay, I am totally breaking rules here. White pants found their way into numerous looks of mine so far in this collection, and now we have a white dress. *GASP*, someone call the Fashion Police; we have a triple homicide of slaying it on our hands. Woop woop. (That was supposed to be sirens...again, sorry for my bad jokes.) You honestly cannot go wrong with a white garment, specifically a dress, and even more specifically, a dress this drop-dead gorgeous. The high-low style, showing a little leg action while cinching at the waist and the beautiful detailing at the bottom...ugh. I can't even.
