With Coachella happening this past weekend, some of the hottest celebrities were wearing their best indie boho Spring styles.  Paris and Nicky Hilton looked angel-like in an all-white ensemble at the festival.  From white dresses to white skirts and white tops, white clothing is taking over the clothing racks this season.  Paris Hilton looks stylish and a tad quirky in a long high-waist white skirt.  She shows off some skin with a white mesh bra top.  Paris adds some fun white accessories with her cat-eye sunglasses and her large quilted bag.

Nicky Hilton looks casual and cute in a white crocheted lacy dress and a large white satchel.  Her funky reflective sunglasses add a cool vibe to her look.  Both ladies finish off their outfits with simple yet feminine nude-colored flats.  Check out the image below to see how you can get a similar look minus Paris’ bunny ears!

Hot New Trend Alert: Pastel Hair Color

We all know that pastels bloom in the spring, but this season pastel colors are stretching beyond clothing.  Some of our favorite celebrities like, Katy Perry, Nicole Richie, Hilary Duff and Jennifer Lawrence are adding a little spring color to their hair.

Katy Perry opted for a pretty lavender color, while Nicole Richie went for the classic pink.  Hilary Duff however, was a lot more daring with her decision to dye her hair a shade of greenish-blue.

A recent InStyle article gives us tips on how we can experiment with our hair color.  Pastels tend to fade quicker than other colors, but the article advises that if you’re a bit indecisive, perhaps you should opt for a coloring method that can be washed out.  If you’re starting with a lighter hair color, you’re in luck because dying it will be an easier task.  If you’re like me and you have brown hair, you’ll have to do some extensive bleaching before getting your desired pastel color.

Personally, I’ve thought about dying my hair several times, but haven’t yet taken the plunge.  Recently, the ombre look has gotten my attention.  Ombre gives you the best of both worlds because you can experiment with your color without having to worry about damage from dying all of your hair especially the part right next to your roots.  Also, if you don’t like the new color you’ve added to the bottom of your hair, you could just cut it off.

Jennifer Lawrence looks edgy and chic in the picture below where she experiments with pastel pink by adding it to only the bottom of her hair.

This Spring’s Hottest Fashion Trends

With the warmer weather on its way, it’s time to start freshening up your wardrobe with new fun trends for spring.  Let your style blossom in relaxed silhouettes and floral patterns.  The Huffington Post gives us some new ideas on how to incorporate the latest trends into our look.

To start, it’s time to uncover your flare jeans because this spring it’s all about the 70’s vibe.  Wear your flare jeans with a basic top or jazz them up a bit with a fancier silk top for going out at night.

Give your outfit some flare by wearing pastel accessories via handbags, shoes, and jewelry.  These pastel items will add a soft, spring touch to your look.

On those chilly nights, keep warm with long over-sized cardigans and chic booties.

Opt for booties in a boho style or ones with studs or buckles. Booties have been all the rage this past winter, and are still going strong into the spring season.

If you’re tired of carrying over-sized shoulder handbags, you’re in luck because small cross body bags are in style.  The best part about this trend is, you can be stylish and have your hands free at the same time, while out with your friends. Throw your small bag across your body and keep your hands free this spring season.

If you’re looking to buy a new dress, it’s time to go crazy with fringe. Fringe dresses were wildly popular at the past New York Fashion Week.  The Huffington Post article advises us to look to accessories for fringe as well.  That includes handbags, jewelry, and even shoes!

In an article featured on WhoWhatWear, Meghan Blalock shows us how maxi skirts can be a very versatile piece in your wardrobe.  You can pair them with warm sweaters in the winter and crop-tops in the spring.

Blalock shows examples of how a maxi skirt can look chic and playful.  The maxi skirt featured below shows off your legs underneath sexy sheer material with a floral design.

If you’re looking to make your look even sexier, try a maxi skirt with a thigh high split like the one pictured below.  The deep purple color could work during the winter or spring!  Adding a pair of strappy sandals to the look could turn this daytime skirt into evening wear.

Last but not least, try wearing a textured black flare maxi skirt with a flirty floral crop top.  If you want to show less skin, choose a high-waisted maxi skirt.  Make your maxi skirt work double time by keeping it simple during the day, and adding jewelry, heels, and a clutch at night.
