A few weeks ago I shared four spring trends with you. I covered pastels, electric color, warm-weather leather and lace…And ever since spring sprung, these trends have been popping up left and right. Today I am going to showcase these trends and provide some outfit inspiration courtesy of some of my favorite fashion bloggers.
Rachel of The Pink Peonies knows how to wear color. In fact, she’s probably one of the most color savvy bloggers that I follow. Rachel took the pastel trend to the next level with this outfit. Even though each shade is a little different, this head-to-toe pastel look really works. Check out Rachel’s post here to snag this spring look for yourself.
Baku Lace Bandeau Bikini Top With Sierra Floral Print | ASOS | $217.79
ASOS is known for carrying trendy clothing, not retro pieces. But I am glad to see that they do retro inspiration well. Aside from being retro this two piece features several other trends as well. Bold graphic detail and mirror image prints. The high cut bottom does the same justice to your lower belly as the previous suit, but looks a little more modern.
All Black Monroe Two Piece Swimsuit | Unique Vintage | $64.00
Unique Vintage has a wide range of both one and two piece retro swimsuits. This suit in particular reminds me of a tankini in the sense that it covers a good portion of the midsection…the only difference is that this one covers the part that matters. Whether we’d like to admit it or not a lot of us have an unwanted bloat, this two piece makes it unnoticeable.
Esther Williams Bathing Beauty One Piece | Modcloth | $89.99
Modcloth is probably my favorite destination for vintage inspired clothing, and designs like this vintage inspired suit are the reason why. The ruching through the midsection accentuates curves as well as disguises certain flaws making it flattering to a multitude of different shapes. I’m certain that the designer drew inspiration from pin-up shoots featuring Marilyn Monroe.
Still not over this little Egyptian pantheon kick. Isis, the goddess of children, nature and magic and the title of my favorite Bob Dylan song was worshiped as the ideal wife and mother. According to myth, the tears she shed for her brother/husband Osiris’ murder were what caused the Nile to flood every year. In her spare time, she enjoyed protecting and watching over the dead. Her headdress, includes a small throne which associates her with the ruling Pharaohs of the time who were often depicted as her child. I’m a little hazy on all the Isis details, but that’s the gist.
1. Do your thing, Isis.

Now my dear fashionistas I am going to speak about statement rings, like knuckle rings, that are tiny thin ones in gold or silver. This jewellery is so feminine and sweet, that looks adoring on fingers. Sometimes it’s even better when girl or woman wears not too much of jewelry.
Let’s see how these knuckle rings can be worn, so it appears that these rings can be worn absolutely with any outfit, from office to parties, sporty chic to super glam, just throw these rings on your knuckles and rock the show. If you want to look uber sweet, then try to find flower or heart shaped ones, yet if you want to keep it simple, then go with plain circles. For those who want to look extravagant and super attractive many brands offer statement designs that for sure will do their work.
After cold winter days, I think every lady wants to add as much colors as she can. This summer is no exception, look at these cheerful and contrasting colors, like orange, blue, yellow, pink, red and olive, looks original, right? Brands offer contrast color-blocked variations as well as two color tones. Take a look at the interesting color combinations of Carolina Herrera, Tommy Hilfiger, Derek Lam, Prabal Gurung, Dolce & Gabbana collections. My favorite of this summer season is metallic shade that looks festive and bright, so that you can wear it at different evening events and celebrations.
