Every season brings about one or two new fashion trends. Usually this means that you can buy a couple key pieces to bring your wardrobe up to date! You do not have to buy an entirely new closet. If you plan strategically you can have a fresh look with just a few buys. Here are my top 3 favorites for Spring 2017!
1. Special Sleeves – It is ALL about the sleeves for Spring 2017. I am obsessed with ruffled sleeves, bell sleeves, and puff cuffs. You name it, I love it. You might not find these in stores like Marshall’s or TJ Maxx (my favorites) because it’s a very new trend. But you can find it in stores that have brand new inventory like White House Black Market, Dillard’s or any mainstream store in the mall. They are the perfect piece to add to your pre-existing closet. Wear these tops with your favorite skirts to give them a new spin!
2. Floral Print Dresses – Every designer is in on this fashion statement for Spring 2017. Big, bold, bright floral prints are on dresses for Calvin Klein, Ivanka Trump, Tahari and other more mature brands. You can also find them just as easily at Old Navy, Forever 21 and department stores. I just snagged a stunning maxi dress with a beautiful blush pink rose print from Nordstrom Rack for $36. It is literally spring on your dress and it makes me so happy!
3. Chunky Heels – They aren’t wedges but they aren’t spiked pumps either. They are a new and improved heel. A little more comfy than tall, thin heels and a little edgier than wedges. I’m loving this new style and it goes great with whatever you’re wearing. The thin strap and chunky heeled sandals in particular (see above photo) are incredibly versatile and would fit into your closet seamlessly. This pair is from Dillard’s and are Steve Madden brand. They are also trickling into your usual shops like Ross, Marshall’s and TJ Maxx around the $40 price mark.

So put on those chunky heels and float about you wonderful girl, you.
