Fashion trends are a funny thing, in one season and out another. The best is when trends from previous decades become cool again. They tend to take on a fresh, modern spin, but always harken back to their original incarnation. One trend that has people pulling out their 80s pics for inspiration is the denim on denim look (aka Canadian Tuxedo). Back in the day, it was mom jeans and baggy denim shirts, but today we have skinny jeans and chambray. The key to mastering this trend is to go for different shades of denim. I recommend having the darker shade on the bottom and looking for fitted pieces that compliment your shape. If you’re not so sure about blue on blue, try a chambray shirt with white jeans instead.

One of my favorite ways to wear black and white is with a pop of pink (see: yesterday’s post), and I love how Reese Witherspoon put these colors together for an easy spring look. A classic black blazer with a trendy flared skirt is the perfect combination. While you may not have Reese’s unlimited funds, you can totally pull off her style!

I know I’m not the only one who is super excited to say sayonara to my puffy coat! It seems like the endless winter is finally over, and it’s time to break out lighter jackets and shorter sleeves. A leather jacket is definitely an essential component of your spring outerwear arsenal, a truly timeless piece that is worth the investment. I’ve had this jacket for so long, I can’t even remember when I got it. I love that it’s short and fitted, and can dress up any outfit. Read More →
I was so excited to break out my navy and white striped blazer for Monday’s post, and it was definitely a hit! This color combination is a classic, and it adds a preppy/nautical vibe to any outfit. Stripes make a statement on their own, but look great with other patterns too. When in doubt, pair them with denim or white, and add a pop of color with a great handbag or statement necklace.
