Spring is here. And there’s nothing quite like a fresh look book to sluff off old man winter and run like those powdery dandelion whiskers as they float equal parts carefree and crazy into those golden hued meadows of warmth.
Fashion can do this for you. It can trump those green tinted legs that you’ve been secretly french braiding under your winter sweats. Stepping into the right fashion for you can boost your confidence.
It’s like the underwire bra we all need to lift and push through us through this great big world of motherhood. If Starbucks drive through windows and Chik-fil-A lunch excursions a la top not and yoga pants can do it, by golly, you better bet a quick sec on the tilt-a-whirl of now trending should treat you righteous and have you bouncing in style for Spring.
Let’s take a look a the top 7 fashion trends for 2016, shall we?

In a word: RELAXED. Love the simplicity and flirty-ness of the flared bottom that the culotte can provide. The trick is to find the right shoe to compliment your body height. I love the idea of culottes with Chuck Taylors and a fun blazer with some rose colored bling. It’s the year of mixed printing. Why not go bold and be comfortable, too?
2. SLIP DRESS

ALL.ABOUT.THE. SLIP.DRESS. It rocks with countless variations of shoes and layer options. I love that you can dress it up or dull it down. The trick is that it’s elongated and loose. That means it vibes out vertical imagery on all body types. For those shorter ladies, just be careful to keep it just under the knee to hold that stretched length status.
3. BOMBER JACKET

Bomber jackets are like the Top Gun in this season’s proverbial closet, y’all. Keep them simple in color or rock a print. Either looks stellar in contrast to a more fitted skinny jean, skirt, or legging.
4. ELONGATED VEST

The elongated vest has been a trend since 2015 that has yet to leave us. And I am so thankful! Love the way it so easily divides our upper and lower body allowing the eyes to see the full body image instead just one specific section of our figures.

They’re back! A shoe with such personality is never to disappoint. I love the idea that a mule can be a heel or a flat and still rock such a great look.
6. OVERSIZED STRIPES

You had me at stripes. These lines are great for a little personality in a easy does it kinda vibe. Pair them with florals if you wanna!
7. HIGH WAISTED PENCIL SKIRT

It’s the deception of high and the sleekness of fitted that has most body types adoring this styled skirt. Consider layers if you feel overly conscious. Don’t be afraid to tuck in that shirt and practice great posture as you adorn this last spring trend.
