First came the ballet flats, then the topknots, and with the addition of blush pink this spring, it’s safe to say there’s a dance trend ruling the fashion world. From voluminous tulle skirts to small, romantic details, ballet-inspired pieces add a touch of elegance and feminine flare to any outfit (even if there’s not a graceful bone in your body!).

Call it a nod to America’s prepster roots–this spring’s biggest trend is “shirt dressing.” Everyone is buttoning up and we must admit we’re smitten. This look is at once comfortable and put-together. Its simplest iteration is the shirtdress–a one-step outfit in the making. This version by Gap is easy on the wallet and you’ll wear it all season long. Plus, can we just note that fabulous bag is from Old Navy!??!?! Talk about stepping up your game!

Wear it Now Wednesday: The Perfect Spring Jacket

jacket / earrings / watch / tee / jeans / bag / heels

If there’s one key piece for spring it’s the perfect jacket. While we opt for a trench at work and statement toppers for our nights out, most days we’re living in a military-inspired jacket like this one. It works as a neutral and plays nicely with dressy, sequin pieces and drapey tees alike. We couldn’t resist partnering this version with on-trend boyfriend jeans and bright heels.


Oscars 2014: Our Favorite Red Carpet Looks

As last night’s star-studded pizza party, (er, Academy Awards Ceremony) brought the 2014 awards season to a close, we saw a lot of red carpet trends emerge: Embellished nude gowns, glamorous statement necklaces,’90s power hair, and subdued makeup paired with flowing hairstyles. A few celebrities really blew us away with their striking beauty looks, award-worthy poise, and impeccable head-to-toe styling. Click through for five of our favorites!

We think it’s safe to say that Lupita emerged as 2014’s awards season’s MVP, both on and off the red carpet. The Best Supporting Actress winner looked like a modern day Cinderella in this custom Prada gown in powder blue, said to be reminiscent of the starlet’s hometown, Nairobi.

Good news — you only have to shave half of your legs this spring! It’s the season of the midi skirt, a hemline that ranges anywhere from just below the knee to just above the ankle. Whether you go for a 1950’s voluminous tea length style or prefer something sleek and fitted, the midi skirt adds a touch of old-school elegance to just about any look.

Wear It Now Wednesday: Cocoon Coat

We’ve noticed a new silhouette on the block when it comes to outerwear. The cocoon coat was all over fashion week and it’s slowing winding its way into our favorite fast-fashion stores as well. While the silhouette has been on the scene since Balenciaga debuted it in 1957, it’s recently been sidelined by body-hugging car coats and edgy moto jackets. We love the cocoon coat because it’s easy to wear. Plus, it exudes a downtown-cool-girl sense of style. The newest versions for spring come in candy-colored pinks, dusty rose, sky blue, and ivory hues. We’d pair this blue one with a white and black ensemble and some chic blush accessories.
