Weekly Trends: Printed Denim & Colored Bottoms

This week, we’re focusing on the bottom half of our ensembles. If you’re looking to freshen up your wardrobe, a pair of fresh printed denim or, for the guys, a colorful pair of pants or shorts, are easy options.

Printed denim is popping up all over the place, particularly this season. There are so many options to choose from. When you opt for a bolder print, stick more subdued, basic tops. If you choose a more subtle print, try mixing it with a complementary printed top to add interest and dimension to your look.

For the guys, colored bottoms are an easy way to infuse some color into even the most casual ensembles. Try a pair of brightly-colored shorts with boat shoes for effortlessly cool summer style.

Adventures in Dressing: Mother-Daughter Bonding, 21st Century Style

There are a few different kinds of moms -- the baking kind (Martha Stewart), the singing kind (Maria von Trapp), and the shopping kind (Kris Kardashian).  I have the shopping kind. These mother-daughter relationships tend to be vain (albeit a lot of fun). Spa days, shopping trips, at-home fashion shows, hours spent going through Grandma's old jewelry...but what happens if the mother/daughter pair don't live in the same city anymore? What does one do without the joys of mother-daughter vanity? 

Have no fear, the VIP Dress Me App is here! From the comforts of their own computers, mothers can dress daughters to their hearts' delight in frilly, furry, frothy costumes, and if one so pleases, daughters can even purchase the selections on the VIP.Zappos.com website and wear them to the next family get-together for that euphoric feeling daughters get when they make their moms happy.

And daughters can dress their moms too! My sassy mother is quite fun to "dress" , so to introduce her to the new Dress Me app, I created an outfit for her that she can wear during the blustery Canadian winters she endures.

Daughters, dress your mom, and moms dress your daughters on the Zappos VIP Dress Me app today!

We like to think of shorts as that happy medium between pants and skirts, a versatile warm-weather essential that we wouldn’t want to be without. Even casual shorts can look impressively put together when done right.

Here are just some of our current picks:

1. Trina Turk Aero shorts: The refined pleating and chic khaki color give these shorts such a tailored feel.

2. Lilly Pulitzer Callahan shorts: Pair these pristine navy shorts with your nautical-inspired tops this summer!

3. Brigitte Bailey Nikki pleated shorts: This high-waisted number is sassy enough for a night out on the town.

4. Calvin Klein Jeans linen Bermuda shorts: Quite possibly the perfect vacation shorts.

5. Juicy Couture Bedford sailor shorts: The brass sailor-inspired buttons add a simple yet noteworthy touch to these shorts.

Fresh Picks: Sky-High Wedges

Even though we’re seeing a comeback of shorter heels and kitten heels, there’s still a special place in our hearts for the leg-slimming, leg-lengthening brilliance of sky-high platform wedges. For those of us who are on the shorter side, or those who just refuse to be seen in flats (you ladies know who you are!),  it’s  comforting to know that this season still boasts quite an impressive crop of height-amplifying platform shoes for us to lust over.

Here are a few of our must-haves for the summer:

Steve Madden Wissper: This nude-colored sling-back platform really lengthens the legs!

Via Spiga Eve: With a flair for the ‘70s, this stunning platform really makes a fresh statement. It’s definitely better than anything Marcia Brady could ever dream of!

Nine West Bottos: There’s a lot to love about the versatility of this casual wedge. Wear it with anything and everything!

Pelle Moda Jamba: The gladiator-like straps coupled with the cork and espadrille combo make this one fabulous wedge sandal!

MICHAEL Michael Kors Juniper Espadrille: The braided strap over a nice, tall espadrille wedge gives this such a boho flair.

You’ve heard the saying “it’s all in the details”, well, this certainly holds true when it comes to fashion. Here we shine the spotlight on three of the most noteworthy details for spring and summer clothing.

Tie dye

This beloved throwback to the ‘60s is still going strong in today’s fashion. Seen in everything from maxi dresses to accessories, tie dye, when done in moderation, is a breezy and laid-back trend.

C&C California Sunburst Tie Dye Tunic Tank

Embroidery

Embroidery detail has such a bohemian-inspired feel, which is why it’s such a great choice for updating a summer wardrobe. Whether done on a lightweight peasant blouse or a cotton summer dress, embroidery really livens up your look.

JWLA Butterfly Kisser Dress

Joie Delano B Top

Lucky Brand Carmen Pullover

Tribal Print

There are tons of different tribal prints out there; from ikat print to African, to Southwestern, the possibilities are endless. Keep the rest of your ensemble fairly simple when wearing a busy print to balance things out.
