Bucket hats

Bucket hats have made a major comeback for Spring 2019. During fashion week in New York and Milan, there were a number of style enthusiasts adorning bucket hats with their ensembles. I’ve also seen an increasingly amount of brands include this hat accessory into their collections.

Oversized Floppy and Sun Hats

Floppy hats have always been a popular style accessory in the Spring and Summer for years . Designers have taken sun hats to bigger heights since their resurgence in popularity last year. The bigger the brim, the better.

Visors

Visors have of course been known to protect you from the sun. More recently, they’ve become a stylish statement accessory that not only protects but adds stylish dimension to your causal looks.

Turbans

Turbans rose to popularity shortly after the likes of June Ambrose, Solange, and Sarah Jessica Parker wore them respectively a few years ago. The turban has now re-emerged in the fashion scene and I predict they will be a must have headwear accessory for spring.

Baseball Hats

Baseball hats are here to stay because they are timeless. They’re great for chic lounge wear looks and bad hair days. Pair them with your favorite t-shirt and a pair of jeans!

Boater hats have been around for centuries and have made its way onto high fashion runways for top designers’ spring 2019 collections. Many of these hats come in a straw material and/or in neutral tones. I’ve noticed a plethora fashion brands have designed boater hats to be paired with sundresses, swimsuits, and other flowy silhouettes. Boater hats are a great spring/summer vacation headwear accessory.

Seasonal Transition Statement Pieces We All Should Own!

We are right at the cusp of winter transitioning into spring. This will be that time of year where it’s not warm enough to wear sandals but it isn’t cold enough to pile on layers. We need pieces that we can wear as the weather begins to drastically change from day to night. Here are a few pieces that I think would be great for fickle weather!

1.Trench Coats

Trench coats are the perfect substitute for a heavy coats and faux furs. They’re lightweight and give you the coverage you need in cooler temperatures. A trench coat is a staple piece and great for seasonal changes.

When it Rains, Style Remains.

The seasons are in transition and we will soon be waking up to cloudy skies and pouring rain more frequently. The lack of motivation to wear anything remotely fashionable goes out the window. However, the rain doesn’t have to leave our fashion sense in limbo. You can still rock a fashionable look and be readily prepared for the weather. Let’s take a look at 6 outfits I’ve created that are fashion forward and are sure to keep you dry in unrelenting rain.

Pair your rain boots and raincoat with a sweatshirt and skinnies for a stylish, comfortable look. Rain coats and rain boots are essential pieces to own for rainy days. Investing in one neutral pair of rain boots and one rain coat will make life so much easier.

If you’re on your way to work or a professional event, you can’t go wrong in the rain with a cute trench, wide leg trousers, and heeled boots. Heels are not off limits in the rain! Just avoid suede and open toed heels. Opt for a snake print or patent leather heel instead.

Pairing sneakers with a pullover, water resistant trench coat, and skinny jeans, is another perfect way to to remain fashionably water proof. If you don’t own a pair of rain boots, sneakers with a thicker sole are the obvious choice for slip resistance and style.

Who said you can’t wear a dress in the rain? A midi dress paired with cute rain boots is a bold style statement for rainy weather. Make it fun and add some color to your look!

Rainy weather doesn’t have to end your evening plans, either. You may have plans to attend a concert or party but the weather isn’t exactly permitting. Don’t let that stop you. You can style a cropped hoodie and statement skirt with boots for a chic outfit in any weather

Style doesn’t have to stop for the rain. You can be fashionable on the rainy days, too. Don’t forget your umbrellas!

Denim on denim will always be “in style.” Since denim is such a versatile fabric, you can’t go wrong with styling and profiling in a denim look. Although styling this trend takes minimal effort, it never hurts to give your double denim outfits a boost! So let’s explore a few ways to elevate your denim on denim looks. I’ve created 5 separate double denim outfits using one of my favorite styling apps, Shop Look. Check out these elevated denim looks below.

You can do a denim matching set with graphic print details! What’s more bold than decorated denim? You can also opt for a matching set that offers a bottom with a unique silhouette. This will enhance your outfit and give you a high fashion look.

Opt for contrasting denim pieces rather than matching denim pieces. Have fun and play with the contrasting tones of your denim.

You can also play with contrasting colors by pairing your blue denim with black denim. A blue denim dress with a black denim jacket would be the perfect style statement.

Denim outerwear doesn’t just have to be a denim jacket. Switch it up and opt for a denim trench or duster coat with jeans and sneakers.

Add some stylish structure and dimension to your double denim look with a simple peplum or flounce. Pair with jeans or a straight skirt and I guarantee you’ll stand out.
