HEAD-TURNING DENIM >> ”Skinny jeans in a signature pop of color are a staple this spring [and this blazer is] the perfect piece to take you from work to weekend.” —Marie Claire
Sexy denim in a playful color makes a fab foundation for spring style. We’re crazy for a slim turquoise jean with a boxy yellow top, or a green jean teamed with shades of blue. And who doesn’t need classic white denim in her life, especially when the weather steams up? The perfect add-on for work and after hours: a blazer in a fun hue.

IN THE SHEER >> “Pleated maxi skirts are ultra feminine and flattering.” —Marie Claire
It’s romantic, flattering, sexy…what’s not to love about chiffon? Pair a flowing sheer maxi skirt with a fitted, cropped top, or try an airy top with daring short shorts—this look is all about the proportions. And a flirty pleated dress is perfect for springtime dates, parties, weddings and even the office with a cardi or jacket.

ONE-PIECE WONDERS >> “[This romper is] flirty and chic in an eye-catching electric blue [and this tote is] the perfectly proportioned handbag with gorgeous detail.” —Marie Claire
Maxi dresses, rompers and jumpsuits scream chic, not to mention that they go from day to night with ease. Take advantage of the sun and go for a plunging neckline or single shoulder. Sleek, simple design means you can add on your most treasured statement piece, whether it’s glam hoop earrings, oversized bangles or a powerful wide belt.
