The Style Edit: Jumpers 3 Ways

We love dresses, but sometimes, we want to shake things up—which is why the jumpsuit and its shorter counterpart, the romper are definitely on our radars this spring and summer as the perfect alternative to the dress.

Below I’ve styled three different looks with the jumper as a focal point. Whether it’s to the beach or the office, this fashion-forward option is just as easy to wear if you pull in the right accessories and pick a style that works with your body’s proportions.

Zapponian Spotlight: Michelle R. Gives the Rundown on Rain Boots

Spring has sprung, and once the sky starts to leak, the shoe closet has a way of looking a little bare. Be ready for cloud bursts of any sort with a reliable pair of rain boots. A good quality pair of rain boots will not only last season to season, they can be surprisingly versatile and stylish!

Consider pairing a back-strap rain boot with a printed-dress and jacket combo for festival season. The practicality of a cute rain boot will help keep your feet dancing, rain or shine – not to mention lend a uniquely casual look. 

Thinking of picking up gardening? Rubber garden boots come in shorter lengths for added mobility when reaching to prune those perfect posies. If the great outdoors lights your fire, you can relax in the wilderness or on a fishing boat in a rugged pair of waterproof boots.

If you’re up a creek without a paddle when it comes to styling rain boots, Zappos’ very own style editor, Michelle Robles is here to take us all to school. After six years of wowing everyone around the office with her undeniably chic taste, Michelle has agreed to share her own rainy-day fashion tips as well as some great rain boot picks to get you through any rainy day in style:

What inspires your personal style?

M: I’m influenced by street style, Pinterest, bloggers, and different cultures.

 

What is an ultimate essential to your own inclement-weather wardrobe? 

M: My classic Hunter Original boots – these never go out of style!

 

How do you build a practical and stylish outfit around rain boots?

M: Leggings or skinny jeans are my go-to picks. My personal favorite is wearing skinny jeans, a striped tee and a utility jacket for a relaxed-cool look.

 

What is one fashion faux pas that makes you go “Eew!”?

M: Wrinkled clothing.  Steaming your clothes can take you from sloppy to polished in an instant. Ironing is not my thing, but steaming is a breeze. I can’t live without my steamer and travel steamer!

Spring Is Here! 12 Pieces to Welcome It.

For me, my favorite thing about spring is that it is a time of new beginnings where we can re-evaluate what we’ve done so far this year, and a great opportunity to get rid of all the lumpy, dumpy clothes, heavy coats and dark sweaters. Oh, and I get to celebrate my birthday in the spring!

Something about spring always makes me want to wear dresses, preferably ones from Poppy & Bloom, BB Dakota, and Rachel Pally, spin around in circles, walk barefoot in the grass and just be outside with friends and family, whether for cocktails on a patio or at the park.

I am absolutely in love with the dusty, mature pastels many designers are featuring this year. These soft, gentle pops of color brighten your day without making you feel like a jellybean. They also transition beautifully to summer and even into the fall.  Jag Jeans capris and DKNY Jeans shorts are perfect for enjoying those concerts in the park or just relaxing as the little ones gather bouquets of dandelions and purple clovers.

Since the days start out cooler before warming up midday, I love to ease into the season with light layers and three-quarter length sleeves. The added protection from the sun is just a bonus for people who burn at the mere thought of the sun, like me!  Speaking of protection, a great sun hat is not only a fabulous fashion statement, it keeps your face and neck protected, and in the long run, looking younger for years! Round out your look this season with an incredibly gorgeous, soft pastel leather handbag, whether in a hobo bag like the one featured below from COACH, or a tote bag for the beach.

The Style Edit: Maxi Dresses 3 Ways

Move over, winter! We’ve all been anticipating the arrival of spring for many reasons besides the obvious—one of the big ones being the return of airy maxi dresses into our wardrobes. From day to night, the versatile maxi dress is one of those spring closet essentials that we love to throw on for instant style without a ton of fuss.

Below are three great ways to wear the beloved maxi dress for different occasions this season:
