Nothing says SPRING like vibrant colors splashing down the runway! I had the pleasure of attending Macy’s Spring Essentials Cherry Blossom Fashion Show in Downtown Washington DC, courtesy of Xina+PR. This exclusive event, hosted by the hilarious Author, TV Personality and Fashion Guru, Daisy Lewellyn, featured the 5 essential looks for Spring 2013.
This year’s fashion trends included the “not your mom’s” PEPLUM, JACKETS/PULL-OVERS with a twist, jazzed up LACE, chic DRESSES and PRINTED PANTS.
PEPLUM: This peplum was clearly not what I remember my classy mother wearing while I was growing up in the 80’s. The versatile style easily works as sassy business attire, as well as a more dressed down version of the over-skirt paired with skinny jeans or a straight leg pant.
JACKETS & PULL-OVERS: Style and warmth go together this Spring with adorable jackets and pull-overs. It’s time to pack away the big and bulky winter coats and grab a few of these cuties to add a little twist to your attire.
LACE: I’m normally not a huge fan of it, but this jazzed up lace certainly made me take a second look. Lace was certainly an eye-catcher on the runway!
DRESSES: When Spring arrives, I am instantly reminded of Easter. It’s the season where pastels and pops of color fill our wardrobes. Who doesn’t love a chic dress with a pair of fabulous sandals?
PRINTED PANTS: The beauty of jeans is that women of all sizes and shapes can wear them. Macy’s has translated that same thought to their printed pants line! I just LOVE that the models were indeed, every woman! Ode to the curvy girls ;-).
Stop by your local Macy’s to grab these great looks. Or if you’re like me and get too busy to brave the stores, shop online and have the deliveries come straight to your door. I love taking a little break from my day with a big box to open that has nothing to do with rhinestones :-).
Fashion, shopping and fun are best shared with friends. It was a pleasure to join blogging buddies Xina, Ananda, Lianne, Tonia, Monica, Jazzy and Bren for this event. The fun didn’t stop there as we turned our evening into a girls night with dinner at the lovely Hamilton.
