Spring Style Trends: Off-the-Shoulder Tops & Wide Leg Jeans

Linnea White

Spring weekends are made for frolicking, and this outfit is rocking some of the biggest Spring style trends. From the off the shoulder craze to the wide leg culotte length jeans phenom, this outfit is ready to hit the Spring scene with a burst of zeal. Bring it on, Spring! Wide leg jeans are making my LIFE right now. That culotte length is easily pulled of, when styled right for your body type. I could have sported this pair with some heels to give me a little boost in height, but I wanted to show how to dress down the look for weekend adventures. And these Nike kicks were the perfect way to do just that.

I'm also jumping for joy over this off-the-shoulder top, because dang. Showing off a little shoulder, ladies, it's the new sexy. And it is also so darn cute! Keep your neck bare for a clean look, and let the top (and your skin/shoulders/collarbone) do the talking. A pair of statement earrings is the perfect way to accent this trending neckline, especially in a bright hue for the warm season.

How would you rock these Spring style trends, darling?

Winter Vintage Glam

Linnea White

The holiday parties may have passed, but Winter Vintage Glam never fades. The timeless touch of whimsical pieces and eye catching glam is a dashing combination. This outfit mixes vintage finds with contemporary brands flawlessly for a look oozing style with class!

We already know I have a thing for Winter Whites (from clothes to hair color), so when this vintage Angora sweater came into the shop last week, the swooning commenced, inspiring this entire outfit. Paired with a pair of Topshop tuxedo style jogger pants, sassy black heels, and this stunning feathery jacket, I was oozing sartorial elegance.

When the pieces are so effortlessly chic, accessories are meant to compliment, not overpower. After all, we're talking about Vintage Glam here. The longline jacket and the long necklace help contrast the cropped sweater to lengthen the neck and torso, making a curvier, shorter frame extra tall. A pair of medallion earrings pair fabulously with the velvet embroidered vintage clutch, and, of course, what's more retro than a classic red lip.

From Winter cocktail party, New Year's Eve party, Winter wedding reception, or just for a night on the town, this outfit is ready to just about any Winter soirée.

What's your favorite way to wear vintage pieces?
