Bored of your winter wardrobe? So are we! That’s why we’re thinking ahead to spring. Winter is more than half over, so it’s time to give ourselves a break in the form of some fresh fashion finds inspired by the season to come. That’s why in this installment of Pretty Little Things (where each week we bring you our picks for the prettiest little things online), we’re looking at stylish ways to think spring.
Nothing says spring like the first blooms of the season, which is why I couldn’t resist this cheerful floral frock featuring a smattering of carnations, tulips, pansies, dahlias and yellow bells across a fresh mint green background (modcloth.com, $115). The vintage-inspired dress has cute capped sleeves, intricate embroidery at the neck and it’s fully lined for any not-so-nice weather still on the horizon.
Soft, Easter eggshell-inspired hues graced several spring runways and I can’t help think of warmer days when I see pastels. That’s why I was drawn to these adorable patent pumps in a light shade of sage green (shopruche.com, $45). Pair these sweet shoes with anything from dark skinny jeans to gray pencil skirts.
Yellow is the perfect shade to counter the grayer days of winter. It’s almost impossible not to smile while you wear it. I recently came across this elegant a-line tweed skirt in a golden, sunny hue (anthropogie.com, $70). If you’ve been lamenting over the lack of sunshine where you live, light up your wardrobe with a splash of sophisticated yellow.
Pink is one of my favorite colors and there’s something about it that makes me think of warmer days. I am currently coveting this electric pink Rebecca Minkoff leather purse with a detachable shoulder strap and eye-catching chain detail (revolveclothing.com, $195). It’s got a touch of glamour and definitely gets noticed without going over the top.
Pretty in polka dots
Polka dots have been sitting pretty in the style spotlight for several seasons and they’re showing no sign of giving up their spot. The playful pattern just says spring to me and I love this simple but stylish jersey shirt dress with black polka dots on a cream background (topshop.com, $60). Wear it as a dress with tights or over leggings with knee-high boots for a polished daytime look.
