Show some shoulder this spring (and other fashion advice)

It’s official! Spring has sprung! The time has come to trade in fleece for florals and basic monotones in favor of bold colors and print. It is also time to peel back the layers and breathe new life into your spring wardrobe. As with any season, it is important to have your basics or key pieces in place to carry you through and then add a couple of fun trends to the mix. This season, we are happy to report that spring staples such as stripes, lace, and boho are back. On the rise we’re seeing an off-the-shoulder trend as well as lots of ornate details, especially when it comes to accessories. To illustrate how best to incorporate these trends into your spring mix, we have put together a curated collection of this season’s essentials courtesy of the fashion site, Clothing Curator. To get these trends and more (without having to pay the full retail price) visit www.clothingcurator.com.

The "boho" look.

The boho look is back again so if you haven’t already, I would highly suggest adding some flare to your wardrobe. These Paige denim high-rise Bell Canyon flare jeans pair perfectly with the billowy ‘Intima’ silk peasant blouse from Joie and natural-colored grosgrain strap jute ‘Grace’ Espadrille wedge sandals By Stubbs and Wootton.

Rock the stripes and straps.

Stripes can add a sense of whimsy to almost any look. From a striped top paired with white pants to a striped bag that adds that extra pop of color, no need to read between the lines with this spring staple. This Cedar Street stripe Tenley crossbody is by Kate Spade New York; Mahaut mixed chevron stripe tank is by Joie; and Rhonda twofer stripe dress is from Ella Moss.

Layer on the lace.

Layer on the lace to add some texture to your spring wardrobe and capture that feminine and flirty flare. Head-to-toe white is also a fresh way to start the season and the perfect blank canvas to to add some ornately detailed accessories. The Joie alsace floral lace crochet top, Diane von Furstenberg Taylor silk and lace blouse and Diane von Furstenberg Purdette wrap lace romper are all prime examples of how to incorporate lace into your everyday spring look.

Make a statement with these earrings.

The off-the-shoulder trend is a must-have silhouette this season. You can play around with this style in sexy, sophisticated black or fun, floral prints. Also trending now is the bodysuit — this season’s most versatile layering piece.
