How to Elevate Your Trusted Casual Looks

Share It:

This last week of the year I found myself digging most for spring/summer 2014 trends. Shopbop | New Season: 10 Crosby Derek Lam in particular impressed me because it focusses on amping up our reliable go-to casual outfits. We already have most of these spring staples in our closet so we only need a piece or two to give those old items a new twist. Get ready for those fashion-forward casual looks.

How many sweaters do you have in your closet? And how many mini skirts do you have? In spring, take a dark print mini to team with a light shade pullover such as beige, blush, or coral, to go with a pair of sexy sandals or pumps. Then take your best trench coat to pull everything together. Wear it unbuttoned.

Loving those jumpsuits and rompers you got from last season much? To give it a new twist for spring, throw over a fierce topper such as a colorblock or a sleeve-contrast trench.

Elevated Trackpants

I once dressed up a pair of sweat pants with blazer and i was amazed with the result. Next season, I´d like to put my hands on track pants. The key is choosing a track pant in light, girly hue and styling it up with of-the-moment patterned top.

Skinny jeans are always reliable whether it´s for cold or warmer seasons. But in spring, you´d like to distant a bit from heavy, dark denim and opt for something lighter in hue. Try a pair of figure hugging (colorblock) trousers in feminine shade and team it up with a light flirty top. You will surely enjoy the result.
