Every Spring in Virginia, as Winter clings on with cold, desperate fingers, the art of layering becomes every darling's Spring transitional style challenge. When florals and bright patterns call your name, wear them. Layer them. And grab your trusty denim jacket for ALL the layering options.
Spring Transitional Style Solution: The Denim Jacket
The denim jacket. Get you one, darling. It shines layered under coats when the early Spring temps continue to drop - like this, this, and this. It also stands like a weathered champ by itself for those days when you need a light layer. From season to season, and year to year, a great denim jacket is a closet staple.
Spring Style Trend: The Top Knot (no, not the one your head)
You'll see the tied up tee (ahem) or blouse (esp. the cropped version) everywhere this season. While I personally have been tying up blouses and tops like this forEVER, the rest of the fashion world now says it's cool. When done correctly and proportionally, this trick helps accentuate your tiniest part - your natural waist. And we all want to accentuate. Plus, it looks really great with high waisted bottoms.
P.S. Hoops, Hoops, Hoops
Hoops are the biggest ear adornment of the season/this past year, and we love when our Darling Artisans start to innovate on the trend! These new arrivals by Free Range & Feral are absolutely stunning, and a fun take on the popular hoop trend.
