Last year when Spring began I’ve did some window (more like computer screen) shopping to pick up some items that Iike to post here.
Today I’m doing the same thing! I can’t believe it’s been a year already! I still remember researching for this last post like it was yesterday. It’s crazy how time flies, isn’t it?
From last year to 2012 I don’t see too many major differences in trends for Spring, but I’ve still chosen some of my favorites.
Most of them you can buy on line, just be very cautions with the sizing because it varies from store to store.
Unlike last year, I am categorizing my choices by clothing item, starting with tops and jackets. I hope you like my collection!
Every since I started to get fat I stopped wearing graphic tees, probably because I didn’t want to draw attention to my body. But when I reclaimed my right to fashion, graphic shirts were back on my menu.
I love them - They are cool and they don’t require much to create a great outfit. Here are some tank tops and T shirts with cool graphics:
If you like skulls, check out this great tee from Torrid.
I love T-shirts with messages and nice drawings. From Forever 21+.
These fringed T-shirts are awesome and if you’re feeling adventurous you can customize some of your own T-shirts with just a pair of scissors!
Elegant Shirts and Blouses
Two shirts by Evans that can be worn at work and casual occasions. The white one was specially designed for busty women (we all know that buttoned shirts can be such a nightmare sometimes)!
I’m a very big fan of shrugs. They are versatile, can change an outfit and can be worn on days that are warm but not super hot.
They are also very elegant and I have many in different colors, from black to coral. They can come in a great variety of fabrics, too.They are truly great friends.
For a night on the town and special occasions shrugs can make a difference. I loved these in black with lace and embellishments.
Both by Evans.
Light Cardigans and Jackets
Some spring days might be cooler and a great option is to invest in light cardigans, shorter sleeved jackets or denim jackets. I’m super in love with this cotton cashmere sequin cardi by Anna Scholz and the Evans pink pocket cardigan.
Shorter sleeved jackets in light fabrics can create a very elegant outfit. I like these I found at Nordstrom a lot!
Finally, denim jackets are always a good choice and they usually look great with any kind of casual outfit. Images by Nordstrom.
Next week we’re going to take a look at dresses and bottoms (skirts, shorts and pants) so that you can continue to rock 2012 Spring in style.
