Spring 2012 is full of Shades of Neutrals/pinks/mint green

Paulas Styled set
I created this color board for you viewers to get an idea of the color scheme that is 

 

Above I put together a collage of different items that are “in” for spring. I tried to add an item for every body type, at an affordable price. Below you can see where I listed where you can find the items and at what cost. Today, try to make your imagination run with the different shades of nudes, pinks, mint green, and lavender. All of those colors are one of many color schemes that you’ll see more of this upcoming spring.  So take a look at what I created for you viewers and see if you’d be willing to try any of these clothing items or accessories. What do you think of the color scheme? Does it work for you?

 Oasis goth dress
    $27 – oasis-stores.com
This dress is so neat, I just had to add it to the collection. I felt that it needed a little something so I decided to style it with the thin snake-skin leather belt featured at the bottom of the list. This dress would be great for work if you need to dress professional, or if you have fancy dinner date, pair it with a pair of nude heels and pearls and you’re set.

         Quiksilver metallic shirt
          $33 – quiksilver.com
This is the type of shirt that is something I have many of. Because I live in leggings and skinny jeans, This is a top that I throw on and can have fun accessorizing with. Its loose, flowy, simple, and light-weight, So you don’t have to worry about trying to hide anything you are self conscious of, this does the job. 

       T by Alexander Wang jersey tank
      $30 – theoutnet.com
 This jersey tank is a definite necessity in your closet. It’s great for layering for instance, the delias lace top below needs something like this piece to go underneath. This is great for anything shear, lace, see-through, or light weight.

Lace top
$25 – delias.com
I love love this lace top. I truly believe that there’s something so innocent, yet sexy about lace. This top would be great to wear anywhere as long as you layer it correctly. Remember less is more. So because you have the detailed material, that’s enough to give you the creativity you may be looking for.

 

                         
   H m jacket hm.com
$20- hm.com
*This H&M Jacket is a great color and length. You can wear any color with this jacket/ blazer. You can dress is up by wearing a knee-length pencil skirt and black pumps, or dress is down by wearing a pair of skinny jeans, plain white tee and an infinity scarf with a pair of flats or boots and don’t forget to roll the sleeves to give that relaxed look. The length is great for those gals out there who are self-conscious of their bum. This blazer should fall and hit right at your hips.

                                  Low rise pants
    $26 – jackwills.com
I would defiantly invest in a pair of chinos for this spring. They are so easy to create an outfit from day to-night. If you want to dress them up wear a black blazer with a simple white or black tank underneath and a pair of black pumps. For more of a relaxed look, roll the bottoms, wear any top you prefer and slip into a pair of flats and you are good to go. 

 

Oasis pleated shorts
$35 – oasis-stores.com
Pleated shorts are back! I know not everyone may feel as though they can pull them off, but I do know that last time I watched American Idol, Jennifer Lopez had them on every outfit change haha. She did look great in them and defiantly pulled them off. And we all know that she has a booty. Challenge yourself, if you’re out shopping, grab a pair and try them on. What will it hurt? now, what to pair with them, I would stick with a plain white tee or blouse, tuck it in and add a colorful cardigan but wear it open and loose.

  Summer high heels
$403 – my-wardrobe.com

These thick high heels are so much fun. I chose them to show you that the thick heel platform is still in. These are going to be fun for you to wear with a great vintage dress or blouse. The jeans that would look best would be trouser cut or wide leg, high-waisted.  I know the cost is crazy. I just wanted to show you an example of the style.
 

   Nine West high heel shoes
        $79 – ninewest.com
 These are the heels that ive been referring to. This is a classic pump that can be worn in many different ways. I would recommend you buying a pair of black pumps just like these as well. These are those “go to” heels that you can wear with jeans, a skirt, a dress, chinos, etc. I know that $79 may be out of your price range but you can find these any where. I would try tjmaxx or marshalls to start.

*This hair clip for an incredible $2.00, I would rather use it as a pin on a blazer or cardigan. By attaching a safety-pin to the back you’re able to do so.
