Even though it's still thirty degrees in NYC, I'm still willing the weather to get warmer, and what better than to prep the closet for spring weather! I've been noticing a lot of trends popping up from watching runways, bloggers, and even just people around my office and school (who are all very fashionable considering I work at a luxury designer and go to fashion school). So here are a few pieces to add to your closet for spring!
Midi skirt and dresses have been slowly gaining popularity for a little while, and I'm loving them! The knit dress I'm wearing to the left is SO comfy, cute, and under $60! And when It starts getting warmer, my go-to outfit is always a t-shirt and a midi skirt with sneakers!
Pink is such a hot color right now, in every shade from bright fuchsia to baby pink, and it's seen most in pantsuits! If you're not fully comfortable rocking a full suit, just throw a blazer over a T-shirt and jeans, and you've just taken that from 'clothes' to an actual outfit!
One of my personal favorite new trends is the platform sneaker. All the height of a heel without the pain! They look just as cute with jeans or a pantsuit as they do with a dress! I have my eye of a pair of classic white Superga's, but if you're more daring, they have some with a raffia base that are to die for!
Silver Statement Earrings
This is a trend I've been noticing around the office and around my school A LOT, and it's actually a very simple way to look chic. Grab a pair of all-silver earrings (my favorites are these simple pointed leaf hoops and these hammered linked rings) and pair them with a t-shirt and jeans or a solid fitted sweater and a tailored pant. Bam, instant NYC cool-girl look.
