This week’s outfit of the week goes to a look featured on the Fashion Painted Dreams blog.  Dora looks comfy and chic in a blue and white striped midi dress.  I love how she adds a biker-chic vibe with the on-trend black fringe jacket.  The jacket really stands out when paired with sophisticated, yet minimal accessories.  The simple pendant necklace adds a sense of classic elegance, while the black sunglasses add a touch of glamor!  Last but not least, she pulls the look together with a pair of comfy beige booties.  Check out the image featured below to see how you can get a similar look by rocking a black fringe jacket.

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!
