Polka dot is having a moment. We think. Okay, so it may be more secondary to leopard print, but who doesn't love the classic polka dot? We adore seeing it incorporated into pieces like the etherial Ciel midi skirt (below) and the Clair Jumpsuit (above). I mean polka dot and leopard... who would have thought?! But we love, regardless.
Enough of prints... how about textures, you ask? Beading, beading and more beading. So many accessories we've seen and brought into the store, of late, are replete with beaded detailing that sparks joy... Marie Kondo style. We've got two price points for beaded clutches this season - the playful Camo clutch (below!) is a favorite from our more budget friendly collection. A perfect everyday piece that can be styled with so many different looks, not just your neutrals and solid colors. Try experimenting by pairing it with other bold prints - you never know what new styling combinations can result from it. Our new beaded hoop earrings (in all the spring colors!) have also embraced the trend, and have taken our hoop obsession to new heights. How fun is the turquoise set from Inspo Board #1??
As for style - the jumpsuit has become a spring classic. So many collections that we previewed for this season heavily incorporated the jumpsuit for its playfulness, ease-of-wear and free-flowing quality. In the heat and humidity of summer, form-fitting pieces are no friend (for obvious reasons!) and the jumpsuit is a flattering alternative that allows for ease of movement, while still looking chic and pulled together. A few of the jumpsuit styles we selected this season were with weddings and more fanciful occasions in mind. We love this as a styling option to wear as alternative to a dress (timeless, but at times overdone). Plus, their versatility ensures that with the right accessories you can dramatically dress the look up or down or easily transition it from day to night. Take the Peche Pale jumpsuit for instance - ballerina flats and a simple straw market tote can make the look more casual and everyday. But styled with a low pony, bold earrings (see: pink fan earrings), a statement clutch and heeled sandals, we have a very different look.
