Steer Clear for Sheer
This season’s hottest trends are soft, clean, and ready to be seen! Don’t be shy to flaunt those looks with spring/summers top five must-haves.
I Can See-Through
Get ready to shed those layers and show off some skin! Sheer dresses, tops, and bottoms are this season’s top picks. Light and blissful makes sheer an everyday easy to wear item. See-through doesn’t have to be tacky, just stick to soft neutral colors like blush, ivory, and ecru. Sheer garments are easy to work with, adding layers under or over shows the versatility sheer garments have to offer. Mixing and matching these pieces with denim, leather, and lace prevents sheer gone wild.

Let’s spring for drawstring
Every perfect outfit needs to be accessorized with the perfect bag. The stylish and roomy drawstring bucket is the bag of the moment. And don’t be swayed, there’s nothing wrong with an oversize bag: the bigger the better! Whether it’s the simple skinny jeans with your favorite T or a cute summer dress with peep-toe flats, the drawstring bucket is everyday must have. During the day it’s perfect for carrying around your make-up, agenda, and whatever else you can find to throw in there. Change it up a bit at night for a more eccentric color like metallic. Every girl could use an oversize bag, but the drawstring punches up the look with a little bit of flare. It also adds just the right amount of edge to go with those soft summer silhouettes!
