Warm weather is finally here, and it’s time to pull out your best spring looks. If you need a dose of inspiration to pull together outfits, look no further! Here are 6 chic outfits that will have you looking on trend this spring.
My biggest style secret is that I scrub my favorite brands’ clearance sections looking for the best deals. It takes some work, but I think it’s pretty fun. Most of the clothes that I buy are 70% of retail (or more). Here is today’s best of sale round up– shop soon while it’s still available!
Last month, I re-subscribed to the Rent the Runway monthly update. Our Minnesota winter has gone on far too long, and I’ve exhausted my winter wardrobe. Instead of investing in more sweaters and jackets, I thought it would be cheaper (and more fun) to get back on Rent the Runway.
As I reviewed before, I’m torn between really liking the subscription but also just wanting to buy my own clothes. I have so many summer skirts and dresses, so I will probably stop once the weather gets warm enough to wear them. For now, it’s nice to have access to more cold-weather options!
Although I love to shop, I always try to be frugal with my money and how I spend it. I almost never pay full price for shoes or clothing, and most of my wardrobe is bought at 75% off or more from retail price! One of my top secrets is to make the most of loyalty programs—even at places you shop a few times a year. Here are some of my favorite loyalty programs to score a deal:
If you feel like you’re one of those people who will never be “stylish”, there is hope! A lot of times it’s not the clothes that you have, but the unique way that you wear them that makes your stylish look. Here are 6 tips to pulling together an outfit that will make you feel like a style pro.
- If you struggle with style, stick to the basics. Dark skinny jeans, button up blouses, simple cozy sweaters, and classic cut dresses won’t go out of style, and are the easiest way to look polished every day. Start with basics and add pops through statement shoes, jewelry, or a bold lip color.
Couture fashion shows are my favorite part of the fashion industry. They truly represent the art of fashion and the art of clothing making. Couture garments are all handmade, in stunning detail. There is a great documentary on Netflix called 7 Days Out with an episode about a Chanel Couture show, if you’re curious about what goes into it! The art of fashion shows like these are the reason I went to school for fashion design.
This week is the Spring 2019 Couture fashion week, and the shows have not disappointed. My favorite show is always Givenchy—I personally love their aesthetic and reinvented silhouettes. Dior’ show took on a circus theme with just enough influence to keep the garments designed and not theme-y. Elie Saab keeps to a very consistent look show after show, but the gowns are none-the-less stunning. There is now doubt this collection will be all over the red carpet at upcoming award shows.
And then there was Viktor & Rolf who made a literal statement with each look. Clever, bold, and 2019 mood for sure.
