Shop The Trend: Fruit Prints!

I am so pumped that spring weather has arrived! Shorter hemlines, lighter fabrics and happier prints, GET AT ME. Speaking of the latter, one of my favorite trends for spring is fruit. Lemons, limes, strawberries, watermelon and pineapple abound in many of the textiles being used for everything from dresses and skirts to crop tops and rompers. Seriously, looking at that striped pineapple dress in the middle is making me both hungry and sartorially inspired. Click through for more fruity fashion…

Shop The Trend: Varsity Blues

Even if I had been, like, into sports in high school, I would have been screwed, seeing as I attended a performing arts school, where I could fulfill my physical education requirement with an assortment of dance classes. No, the whole high school jock culture thing is really foreign to me, and therefore kind of intriguing. I wouldn’t go back to high school for a million dollars, but I would spend a little dough to rock varsity style, which is super popular for spring. The key is not to wear more than one or two sporty pieces at a time, unless you want to look like an extra from a teen high school drama on ABC Family. Here are 12 pieces I’m currently jonesing for…

Shop The Trend: Everything Is Coming Up Daisies!

What was I saying just yesterday? Oh yeah. The ’90s are back, especially when it comes to grunge-era fashion and beauty trends. Let’s see, there are overalls, deep, vaguely goth wine-stained lipscrop tops and, of course, the floral that basically defined the ’90s, DAISY-PRINT. Celebrate the first day of spring — finally! — with one of these fun, whimsical daisy-print items.

Shop The Trend: Hunter Green

There are a lot of different shades of green. I’m not sure who to credit/blame for this. Crayola? Mother Nature? Regardless, according to Wikipedia, hunter green is the color hunters used to wear during the 19th century, until “olive drab green” swooped in and stole its thunder in the 20th century. Not to worry! This darker, moodier jewel tone is gorgeous and deserves a place in your closet. Here are 10 pieces to consider…

Shop The Trend: Bright & Cool Kicks

I’ve never been a total girly-girl. For years, my personal style was pretty tomboyish: baggy pants, plain T-shirts, Doc Martens or Chuck Taylors, you get the picture. Once I moved to New York and started working in an industry that can be very image conscious, I definitely “tried on” a girlier sense of style. It took a while to figure out what I was ultimately comfortable in, but at 34, I can safely say that my sartorial instincts are a mixture of both. For example, if I’m going to wear a plaid flannel shirt, I’d ideally pair it with sky-high heels. So when I noticed a number of street style photos of super chic women pairing feminine cut pants, dresses, blouses and skirts with bright and sporty running sneakers, I was instantly intrigued. Click through my earlier Street Style Spotlight gallery for inspiration, and then check out the 10 cool sneaker options I found here…
