If you haven’t already, ease into spring with a pair of relaxed fit pants in a cool, abstract print. I know what you’re thinking. But Sophie, they look like pajama bottoms. ’Tis true, but think of the pajama-like comfort! What’s not to love? Try pairing these printed pants with a short structured jacket and heels. If you aren’t ready to shell out the big bucks on this trend, try the Olive & Oak version on sale at T.J. Maxx for $19.99.
When I found these elegant Kate Spade shorts, I couldn’t help but swoon. Imagine sipping champagne on a yacht in these bottoms, as your tan legs stretch out lazily… OK, so that isn’t quite my life, but a girl can dream. However, I will opt to wear the more affordable MinkPink version the next time I do a beer tasting on Manhattan By Sail’s clipper.
Spring has arrived, the days are getting longer and the sun is shining brighter. Time to invest in a new pair of designer sunglasses! Wait, maybe not. I don’t know about you, but I’ve lost, sat on or otherwise broken so many pairs of sunglasses over the years, that I now refuse to spend any more than $40 on a pair of shades. Luckily, there are plenty of affordable options that mimic the high end styles designed by Tom Ford, Karen Walker and Tory Burch. Click through for nine pairs of designer sunglasses that are hot for spring, plus their wallet-friendly copycats…
Lace-up stilettos are a hot trend this spring. These Aquazzura sandals are a playful mix of snakeskin, cut outs, and lace-up details — at a decidedly not fuckin’ around price. Luckily we found an affordable version of this sexy trend by Report for 70 percent less at DSW. Holla!
If you are flirting with the idea of mules this spring, consider a black and white, color-blocked pair as a great way to modernize this ’90s trend. These Fendi patent leather mules are exquisite and the color and texture contrasts create a clean, mod-meets-futuristic look. Unfortunately, I am unwilling to spend $850 on any shoe, let alone something that may be a passing trend! I think I’ll try Charles David’s version for $79.95 at DSW instead.
I love a fun statement piece that can be worn year round. This Alexander McQueen romper could be paired with tights and a jacket or rocked solo, and is the kind of onesie I could picture being worn by preppy Taylor Swift or daring Lily Allen. Unfortunately, Alexander McQueen’s romper is more than my monthly NYC rent! Try Motel’s version available at British retailer Bank Fashion. Much easier on the wallet and just as fly!
