Fashion Week is drawing to a close. Thank goodness we have all of these beautiful clothes and accessories to look forward to this coming spring! The looks at Donna Karan New York were eclectic and urban-inspired. An ode to the great city of New York, these looks wouldn’t look out of place on a quirky Manhattanite.
We love rock and roll, and so does Tommy Hilfiger! His collection was brimming with rock show-stopping details like metallic stripes, studs, and leather.
Tory Burch has a relaxed and global vibe this season. Mixing refined style with raw edges makes this a perfect for a bohemian-at-heart who happens to be stuck in a less than free-spirited setting. Plus: tropical toile. Need we say more?At Libertine we got a look at an array of eclectic embellishments that make any outfit party-ready.
This fall we’re falling back into the swinging 60s with short a-line dresses, knee-high boots, and bold graphic prints. Fashion always has a way of reverting on itself, and reinventing the old in a new way. This coming season we’ll be seeing classic mod styles with “modern” additions. Think more metallics, sparkling embellishments, and a diverse color palettes.
Gucci knows how to modernize the trend with leather in an unexpected powder blue and go-go boots.
DSquared2 has it down pat with a slinky blush mini and hair that’s as high as the heavens.

Sunglasses are on of our most beloved accessories for spring and summer, and we usually can’t wait to start wearing them during the dark and dreary days of winter. Sunglasses can instantly make you look polished and put-together. Just throw on a pair of statement sunnies, a light coat of coral lipstick, and you’re ready to face the day!
We love the unique curly shape of the arms. Look for unique details like that on the sides of your sunglasses, if you prefer a more basic frame shape.
A cat eye adds instant vintage style, especially when paired with a cool lip color!
Aviator styles add a slightly masculine and carefree edge to your shades.
New Yorkers are known for wearing a lot of black. It’s the most universally flattering shade, helps you look svelte and can be dressed up or down, but when summer hits, black gets put on the back burner to make way for white. Wearing white not only helps keep you cool because it reflects light, but it also looks fantastic with bronzed summer skin, and is another neutral that you can pair with almost anything.
Be a bohemian with a loose summer dress paired with gladiator sandals.
Stay structured and stylish with a tailored dress, or a revamped and studded button-down.
Embrace the crop top and maxi trend with an all-white ensemble, save for a dramatic black hat.

When it comes to men’s fashion there seems to be a lot less variety. While women can try on every trend from bold neons to crop tops, men usually have a more subdued style. Fortunately, there are elements that any guy can play around with to get a unique style that is all his own. It boils down to the tiny details. By adding unique elements in the way of accessories, men can easily add charisma to their classic looks.

Spring is only days away, and frankly we cannot wait! One color that comes to mind when thinking of the transition from winter to spring is a cool hue that has been popular for the last few years. It’s refreshing and springy, with a name that might give you chills. We’re talking about mint green of course! Here are some of our favorite examples of this gorgeous cool green.
Mint green is the perfect color to wear to a formal outdoor event like a wedding! It’s a fun color that looks great on a lot of people, and really draws in the beauty of the season too!
Mint is a beautiful and unique color that can add interest to any room without being overpowering. It adds a pop without being distracting.
That’s probably why so many people use this color in bedrooms and bathrooms. It’s a nice change from white, and evokes relaxation and calm.
It’s also hugely popular for statement jewelry. Mint lends itself to great color pairings, and looks so beautiful with colors like coral and lavender.
