A Peek at Spring Fashion February 10 2016, 0 Comments

A few days ago, Punxsutawney Phil came out of his little burrow, and amid a lot of media flurry, predicted an early spring. Admittedly, I don’t put much weight on the weather forecast of a groundhog, but it sure is nice to think of an early spring. And really, won’t that warm weather be here before we know it?

Be sure to be ready for it by getting your wardrobe up to date. A few additions will make your style seem fresh for the new season. Here are some of our favorites from the runways for the Spring 2016 season.

Cropped, flared jeans. One of the biggest trends, according to Glamour magazine.This updated version of cropped pants has a lot of style going for it. They can be dressed up or down, and look great with heels or flats. Even better, you can find them at a reasonable price!

Low-slung, wide leg pants. I can’t help but think of Katherine Hepburn when I see this wonderful style. Of course, her waistband sat a little higher than the one on most pants you’ll find this season, but the elegant, tailored look is still the same.

Lacy, feminine dresses. Spring always seems like a time for femininity to make itself known in the fashion world. I think the flowers and the warm weather have something to do with that. This spring season, you’ll see it manifest itself in lacy patterns and dresses that show a little skin, but with a lot of taste. The one pictured here is from Ann Taylor.

Ruffles. Along the lines of the lacy look, but this one is much bolder, with a Latin flare. Live it up and add a ruffled blouse to your work wardrobe this spring.

Bare shoulders. Whether it’s off one shoulder or both, this spring’s look will have a lot of bare shoulders in dresses and blouses. Make sure you’ve got your self-tanner ready!

And our #1 favorite is the Go Free Melanie Capri made of a light weight tropical blend that feels like you are wearing nothing at all!  Total comfort and a fabulous fit in black which goes with everything!  This will be your go to pant all spring and summer – guaranteed!  

Enjoy these last weeks of cold weather knowing that spring will be here soon!

Our 5 Favorite Spring Fashion Trends March 11 2015, 0 Comments

Let’s face it, there’s nothing more refreshing than pulling your sundresses and sandals out of your closet. Especially after the winter we’ve just been through, with record-breaking snowfalls in Boston and very cold temperatures throughout most of the country in February and even early this month, we’ll all be ready to trade our wool sweaters and heavy coats for some t-shirts, sexy capris and flirty skirts.

Sometime it’s hard to bring those runway styles into your own wardrobe, but from what I saw on the runways for spring, I think we’ll all have fun adapting the ideas of top designers into our own, everyday fashion. Here are some of my favorite trends.  I love them not only because they’re cheery, but getting these styles is also pretty affordable!

  1. Floral prints- From bathing suits to shoes, you’ll see flowers all over the place this spring. And we’re not talking dainty little buttercups here. These patterns are full of big, bold flowers with bright splashes of color. I love how a pair of heels with a floral print can really brighten up a pair of our Kathryn pants in stone!
  2. Gingham- Yes, that innocent checked pattern you may remember from your childhood days is coming back in style. It’s been around a few seasons in men’s shirts, and now we’re seeing it in women’s clothes as well. There is just something fresh and clean about gingham that I can’t resist.

  3. Top-to-toe white- Put away those blacks and grays of winter. Spring is all about white, from head to toe! It might sound like a neutral, but wearing all white makes a pretty bold statement.
  4. Suede for Spring- That’s right, the material normally delegated to fall and winter is hanging around a few more months. Trade in your dark, heavy overcoat for a lighter suede jacket or vest. But make sure it’s in a light, spring-like color as well! Pale pink or green suede looks great in the bright days of spring.
  5. Looks from the 70’s- You read right, the decade of choice for the retro look is now the 70’s, but it’s toned down
    just a little! Wide pants, jumpsuits and even fringe are making a comeback. I think I might just have to try a fringe shirt with my favorite pair of Go Free Pants!

Look Great in this Spring's Collarless Jacket February 18 2014, 0 Comments

One of my favorite new styles for spring is the collarless jacket. Sure, it’s been around in multiple forms for years, but this season look for it to make a comeback, with a sexier look.

Why do I like this style so much? For one, it’s comfortable. You can add a layer of warmth without feeling stifled by something up close to your neck.
