This is absolutely the easiest look to achieve. It’s sweet and unique. This long yellow skirt is being used as a dress, perfectly complimented by the paisley panche scarf from: http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Paisley+Panache+Scarf
You pop with bright spring colors and you need nothing but a belt to pull it off. Perfection!
With a pair of leggings, a leather jacket, and combat boots you can pull an effortless look together in no time.
This look is perfect for Spring because it delivers multiple uses. Cold in the morning? Wear the jacket and scarf. Strip it off in the afternoon when you get hot, and you still have the boots and bag that make your statement stand.
Simplicity at it’s best.
This is one of those looks you can take from day-to-night. Switch it up, add a belt, strip off a layer, throw on some heels and your ready to go. This dress from H&M is paired perfectly with the never-failing dress shirt/blazer combo. The color pallet is perfect and the vintage pieces mixed with newbies compliment each other to a T.
You just can’t go wrong with this look. You look polished, but casual. Classy, but not overdone.
Need inspiration? This spread is absolutely mind blowing in every aspect imaginable.

Classic red lips. This accessory is on the risqué side, but done right, you can most definitely make your statement. Avoid clutches with embellishments or rhinestones and you’ll be golden!

This ensemble is the perfect balance between innocent and sexy. To get this look, combine pieces that represent different styles. The over the knee boots are complimented by the studded belt which adds an edgy feel to this otherwise innocent look. The vintage polka dot skirt adds purity, while the sheer blouse is representative of the Spring ‘10 trend “lingerie as outerwear”. Hey Lovely.

Aquatalia by Marvin K Giggle Specchio - Patent Rain Bootie - $260
I’ll be the first to admit - when it’s raining (9 times out of 10) I’ll usually grab my rain boots and head for the door. Comfort is imperative but not always the most fashionable decision. Aquatalia heeled booties are your perfect option for those rainy days when you want to look chic. Perfect for spring, functional and fashionable. Hey Lovely
Fashion trends typically come from people “breaking the rules”. Though there is a fine line between making a statement and making an ass of yourself, there are few “rules” that you can follow to ensure you get this look down right. This season whether or not you like it, knee highs are back. There are three different “knee high styles”. 1. knee high socks, 2. over the knee, and 3. thigh high. Depending on how much of a statement you want to make with your knee highs, there are ways to downplay this look as well as ways to make sure you and your knee highs get noticed.
There is no doubt about it that thigh highs will turn the most heads, but any length can really add a new dimension to any outfit. Here are a few pointers:
- Avoid pairing your knee highs with plaid, pleated, or gingham unless you want to go for the school girl look (which is not exactly recommended).
- If you have bigger thighs go for a sock that falls right below the knee as this will create a slimming look. Thigh highs might accentuate a bulge and draw too much attention, which we want to avoid.
- If you are short try a short hemline and a lower sock to expose more leg, creating a longer look.
To get your street style down to a T, mix and match seasonal items. Take your boyfriend shirt and throw on a twisted leather belt (straight from the catwalk for Spring ‘10). Garb your kicks and a chunky scarf and your good to go! Best part about it is being able to carry each piece throughout seasons. functional and fabulous - all in one. Hey Lovely
