My Style. Enamored with Embroidery

 

There are times when a trend is simply so beautiful that I happily embrace it without a second thought. However, sometimes my adoration for a trend reaches such a fervor, and I grab onto it so tightly that within a few, short weeks my closet is bursting at the seams with it.

(Cue the chorus from my favorite Cardigans’ track, Love Fool: Love me, love me. Say that you love me.)

Details. Give Me All the Buttons

 

Mango Lace Top \ Madewell Button Denim (similar here)

It should come as no surprise that denim regularly gets a makeover. I still usually gravitate towards a simple, cropped skinny jean, but I have to admit that I am starting to have a wandering eye.

What has caught my attention?

Button-front denim.

Buttons can make a real statement on a pair of jeans, denim skirt or even a jean jumper. Keep the styling simple by pairing it with a basic tee, or add this season’s most sought after and versatile textile: lace. Just keep in mind that with details like this though, no one will be looking at your topper.

Shoulder Play. What Comes Next?

 

Yes, my style mavens, the off-the-shoulder trend is played out officially over.

However, I am not here to tell you to be a slave to fashion and switch your closet out every time a new trend emerges or dissolves. Instead, I am simply here to make you aware of the various ways one can show off their shoulders without having to wear the same strapless silhouette this season.

New In. Ankle-Strapped for Spring

 

ASOS One Wish Heels 

It should come as no surprise that straps have made their way back to their rightful place: on my feet around the ankle.

The trend has come and gone for several years, but this season has offered up an assortment of silhouettes and styles. From the thin-strapped metallic sandals that were attached to the model’s feet at Reem Acra, to the wrap around, tie straps that House of Holland created in a playful gingham print, this spring trend is as versatile as it is fashionable.

The REALLY exciting thing about this trend though?

It has been prevalent for so many seasons now (ankle straps are the LBD of footwear), that it is just as easy to don a pair that you already have in your closet. However, you can modernize them by layering a sock underneath like the label Off-White did for their latest runway presentation.

Just remember that with whatever silhouette or style you chose, have a little fun with the trend.
