Update Your Wardrobe

With March just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking spring! Update your wardrobe this season with feminine dresses in lace, bold colors, and simple, yet flattering silhouettes. Balance spring’s prints, neons, and florals with a dash of fresh white, preferably in a bottom like a pencil skirt or cutoff short. When it comes to shoes and bags, buy them in bright colors or metallics like a gold stiletto, sequined tote or bright pink sandal.

1. Derek Lam Yellow Cap Sleeve Dress ($1075)
Fresh-a-licious. Derek Lam’s yellow cap sleeve dress brings sunshine wherever it goes and captures the brights trend to a T. Style work to weekend, this dress’s must-have accessory is a pair of glamorous sunglasses.

2. Totem Ecru and Black Small Saddle Blanket Fringe Bag ($535)
Western-inspired accessories are back for another go-round this summer. Pair this blanket-print bag with cut-offs and your favorite tee for concert season. Leather fringe and strap.

Shine on. Style any cocktail dress with these versatile metallic pumps. Their straight-forward shape is made fashion-forward with textured gold leather.

4. Zadig & Voltaire White Primo Twill Shorts ($210)
The warm weather seasons aren’t complete without the classic cutoff. This set of twill shorts is a little more polished with an ultra white color and slim, sexy cut. Pair with tone-on-tone blushes or spring’s rainbow array of neons.

6. Paul & Joe Sister Marine Lace Dress ($350)
The color of the deep blue sea, the style of a sophisticated city girl. Wear to the office with a belt and tote, but bring to cocktails with a stiletto and clutch. Navy lace overlay with rounded neck and simple short sleeves.

7. Versace Royal Blue Draped Dress ($1245)
Lady in…Blue! Versace’s royal blue draped dress is just as stunning as its red counterpart, but somehow fresher. Figure-flattering asymmetrical pleating and a deep neckline provide the va-va-voom.

8. Vanessa Bruno Sequined XXL Tote ($251)
Larger than life, Vanessa Bruno’s oversized tote works well for travel and beach-going. Add a little sparkle to spring break with its silver sequin trims.
