Lookbook: Spring 2012
Spring is in the air and with it warm weather. Whether you’re gearing up for some much needed vacay or investing time at work, our spring catalog is filled with all the fresh pieces you need to give your wardrobe a lift. We’ve broken it down into five major trends you gotta rock when it’s hot.
CROPPED & COLORED DENIM
WHY WE LOVE IT>> A cropped pant shows off a good strappy sandal, and color adds pop to our all-year-round go-to.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Balance these skinny babies with a dolman top. Whether it’s semi-sheer crochet, stripes or silk, the result will always be chic.
THE ELECTRIC PARTY DRESS
WHY WE LOVE IT>> It needs little to no introduction. Give us a short bodycon silhouette and a splash of color, and we’ll party till the sun comes up.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> With great color comes great shoe responsibility. Team your brights with black and white sandals. Going out with your girls? Reach for sparkling studs! They never disappoint when it comes to giving an outfit bad-girl edge.
THE PINK JACKET
WHY WE LOVE IT>> If we had a team color, it would be hot, hot pink. It’s bold, bright and always makes a statement.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Work the blazer into your 9 to 5. It’ll give pieces that you already own, like that classic gray dress you wear to work, a much-needed spring punch. You can also style it with denim for an off-duty look with a bit of polish. The moto jacket makes a great party piece. Toss it over a little black dress, and it’ll take your look from Audrey Hepburn to Madonna in seconds flat!
WHY WE LOVE IT>> It gives any look a sexy resort vibe and a shot of texture.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Try it with neutrals like white denim or black tops and bottoms. Most importantly, a pair of python sandals is a definite must-have this season and is guaranteed to slap a cool label on any pair of denim pants. Also, don’t be afraid to mix patterns!
WHY WE LOVE IT>> This is where that saying “go big or go home” glamly applies. The bigger the chicer. That’s our motto this season, and we’re sticking to it! For example, a floppy hat instantly elevates your look while keeping your face out of the sun. Talk about a no brainer! Totes can carry just about anything (guilty of sticking even our lunches in there). And shades? Let’s face it, they’re not sunglasses unless they’re a glam weapon capable of amping up any outfit.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> For floppy hat wearing: Pop them over maxi dresses or hot shorts. We recommend pairing a pink floppy with navy or black stripes. For a colorblock hat, we’d reach for complementary colors like blues and yellows. For tote wearing: The good thing about black or white straw totes is that they go with everything. For totes with a bit of color, keep in the same family. Match something to your bag; it could small like your belt or sandal. For shades wearing: Anything goes! Oversized shades are notorious for transforming any outfit. We like to wear ours with a juicy coral lip.
