Dear Posh and Political,
I have pretty average looking ensembles and am ready to make more of a statement with my spring wardrobe. I read high fashion magazines and watch coverage from the runway shows, but need help integrating high fashion concepts into my work wardrobe. What is the hottest trend for spring fashion that is work appropriate? And how do I wear it?
Stepping Up My Game
Dear Stepping Up My Game,
Kudos girlfriend! It takes a lot of courage to admit your wardrobe is lacking some appeal, but you have come to the right person with your dilemma. Runway fashion can seem abstract and irrelevant to the real world at times. I totally get it. But it can be super useful for gleaning inspiration and learning what the upcoming trends will be in terms of color, print, fabric, silhouette, etc. It is integrating these themes into your personal style that can be challenging.
The craze this spring is definitely pieces that are bold and bright. See below for the dets. And keep that eye on the runway!
Be Bold and Bright
Keeping in mind that we are in the professional setting, adding a bright pop to your outfit is tres current this season. Especially in candy colored tones.
I recommend exploring this trend through a pencil skirt, blazer, or crop pant. Keep the rest of your look relatively simple and uncomplicated—let the bold piece steal the show. Also, avoid any item that is too fluorescent, as grounded tones are best for the workplace. See below for some fabulous fashion ideas!
