STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Put A Little Spring In Your Step

If you woke up this morning and caught yourself putting on a sweater and jeans…stop! The weather outside is beautiful and I am sure your spring wardrobe is too, it just needs to get out of the back of your closet.

I spotted this Fashionista in Kogan Plaza on a gorgeous Monday morning in an outfit that would make anyone stop dead in their tracks. The juxtaposition between her rugged boots, ultra-feminine dress and chic accessories make for the perfect transition outfit into spring. Wearing a bright color as the centerpiece of an outfit is daring, but with the perfect balance of neutrals it makes for the ultimate ensemble. This Fashionista chose a dress that blended a bright color and a neutral all in one — the pleated chiffon is not only feminine and flattering, but is extremely comfortable for everyday wear. The outfit is topped with dark accessories in order to contrast the brightness and they attract just the right amount of attention.

The Ikat print is a great route to take when experimenting with patterns and colors, Soft Joie’s Bond Ikat Zigzag Dress displays a great balance between brights and neutrals. The pleated skirt allows the dress to be belted easily, the colors of her dress would look lovely with the Perfect Leather Belt from Madewell. If you dare to show some flare, try Alexander Wang’s Daria Buckle Combat Boots and By Malene Birger’s Jahyl Great Nappa Bag. For eyeglasses, I always say go for the best of the best and the best is Tom Ford.

No matter how stressed you are with midterms or how tired you are from sunning and funning over spring break, spring is the best time to have fun with your wardrobe and blend the best of the all seasons' greatest fashions.
