When it comes to spring fashion, there are just as many trends as there are shades of bright-red nail lacquer (we’re scheduling our pedicures now, by the way). We’ve teamed up with two style bloggers from New York City—who have different but equally fabulous approaches—to help us embrace the options. The best part? The looks are actually wearable.
This Season’s Got an Edge
Hems may be the stars of this season (raw edges, flared crops, scallops), but we’ll never leave behind our classic distressed denim. Make this item a wardrobe staple. Marni especially loves distressed denim for its ability to transition from day to night. “Choose a boyfriend fit, and then pair them with heels that elongate your legs and a fitted top. It’ll keep the outfit flattering and chic,” she says. To dress it down for daytime, slip into a comfortable pair of slides and master the ankle cuff.
Spring Out Loud
Incorporate a statement into your wardrobe (but keep the soft cotton comfort) by way of a graphic tee. “I always tuck my T-shirts in the front and wrap a button-down around my waist to show off my figure. This makes a tee more flattering, while still being totally laid-back,” says Marni. Once again, your beloved sneakers can (and should) make an appearance.
The Sweeter Side of Spring
Kendall has a flair for classically beautiful things, including fundamental summer frocks. Her spring mantra? “A classic white dress is a wardrobe staple, and tassel earrings and a silk scarf are simple ways to add a pop of color,” she says. To keep the silhouette feeling fresh, try an updated off-the-shoulder style. This kind of neckline lets statement earrings really shine. We also love the style on cozy jumpsuits and detailed tops.
One of spring’s perennials is none other than the flowery print, and we’re seeing it in big patterns splashed across everything from fluttery tops to frilly dresses. Learn how to wear florals by taking a cue from Kendall: “Don’t be afraid to play around with your outfit to see what works best. I ended up loving how this top gave a more polished look when tucked into my high-waisted shorts. Also, when incorporating florals, make sure to keep everything else simple and neutral.”
