While we’ve all heard the tale-old testimony, “April showers bring May flowers,” I rarely remember this statement (even mildly) proving itself to be true until this spring. With rain in the forecast for the past eight days, and continuing for the next five days to come, I truly cannot wait to see what kinds of spectacular may flowers are in store for spring. It’s unlikely that I’m alone in my feelings of dreary despair, and although this weather can make it tedious and tiresome for fellow Fashionistas to put their best faces forward every morning, this Fashionista did just that. Not only did she face an 80% chance of showers in style with help of her beige tiered-ruffle trenchcoat, coral scarf, basic dark denim skinny jeans, brown boots and brown bag, she also never forgot to smile! Trends like tiered ruffles are a great and creative way to modify any basic item, try adding tiered ruffles to an otherwise ordinary staple item. Modifying a staple item, like your everyday trenchcoat—allows you to create an inventive look for spring that remains classic, but still feels brand new. This Fashionista found her tiered ruffle trenchcoat at Express. Dressed up or dressed down, in rain or shine, this trend is a sure way to bring a smile to your face, and a little bit of sunshine into your life—regardless of whether or not the weather chooses to cooperate.
Hint: The tiered ruffle trend can also be incorporated amongst your other basic spring items. For instance, a tiered ruffle floral dress is a fun twist on a springtime staple that will surely turn heads as you walk by!
