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.

Fancy Friday: Easy Ways to Dress Up Your Casual Staples

TGIFF! If you were wondering…the extra “F” is for “Fancy”. Here at the Zappos HQ, office dress code leans a lot towards the casual side. However, there are certain days that just call for a dose of fancy…Why not Friday?

Think about it. You’ve survived a long workweek full of meetings, errands and day-to-day stresses. End the week with major style--or should we say, start the weekend off right by getting your fancy on! It’s all about dressing up and feeling confident as you head into the weekend! And believe us, a pair of fancy heels, a cute skirt or dapper loafers can do some amazing things to re-energizing your entire style outlook.

Below are just a few easy ways to dress up some of your favorite casual staples like jeans, t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Casual Fridays? We say break away from the usual and start your own Fancy Friday trend instead!

For Her:

Boyfriend Jeans

featured style: Levi’s® Women’s 501 Customized Jeans

+

Sky-High Heels

featured style: Nine West Tatiana Pumps

Pairing relaxed-fit denim with dressier heels adds up to such an effortlessly chic look for both day and night. We particularly love oversized boyfriend jeans paired with super sexy pumps. It just elevates the look and keeps the jeans from looking frumpy.

 

Basic Tees

featured style: Splendid Vintage Whisper V-Neck Tee

+

Skirts

featured style: kensie Ponte Skirt

The unsung hero of our closets, basic tees are surprisingly versatile for a lot of different occasions. To dress up a simple cotton t-shirt, pair it with a knee-length skirt for the office, and a sparkly mini skirt for a night out. You can even let a printed or sequined skirt shine by pairing it with a very basic tee. It’s all about striking that perfect balance of laidback and feminine.

 

Sweatshirts/Pullover

featured style: Free People In A Hurry Hoodie

+

Leggings

featured style: HUE Floral Gleam Denim Skimmer Legging

Comfy up top, party in the bottom. That’s sort of the vibe this combo achieves with a mix of relaxed and dressy all in one easy-to-wear outfit. Take your oversized grey sweaters and sweatshirts up a notch with printed or textured leggings. The great part is, you can really go all out with the leggings here since the sweater is the more subdued element in this equation. Who says a sweatshirt has to be frumpy? Not with this killer combo!

For Him:

Chino Pants

featured style: Volcom Frickin Modern Stretch Chino

+ 

Leather Loafers

Chino pants are a great wardrobe staple any day of the week. To dress them up for the office or date night, grab a pair of classic men’s loafers to instantly add some refined style.

 

Basic Tees

featured style:  Alternative Crew Tee

+ 

Tailored Trousers

featured style: Dockers Men’s Signature Khaki Slim Fit Flat Front Pant

Your favorite t-shirts aren’t just for pairing with jeans! Take your basic crewneck tees to a new level by wearing them with a smart pair of dress trousers. Throw on a light blazer or sport coat for an even more tailored feel.

 

Basic Jeans

featured style: Joe’s Jeans Cool Off Classic Straight Jeans

Whitney Eve, her contemporary clothing collection is a stunning reflection of her innate sense of style, inspired by runways and street fashion from all over the world. 

The Los Angeles native (who also resided in New York City) has been steadily gaining plenty of various experiences in the fashion industry from magazine internships to stints at renowned fashion houses. It’s through her experience that she discovered her true calling of fashion design. Port created the Whitney Eve line as an extension of her style sensibility, designing wearable works of art for the stylish girl who possesses a touch of punchy sass.
