Spring is finally beginning to show itself all around us, from the daffodils peeking their yellow heads out, to the tempestuous changes in the weather--sun one minute, spring showers the next! We here at For Elyse are really excited that the season is changing, because it means we can integrate fun floral, lace, light wash denim, pastels, and pieces featuring cute cutouts into our wardrobe. It's been exciting seeing new pieces in spring colors arriving every day, so I thought it'd be apt to write a post dedicated to cycling some spring into your everyday look. One of the absolute easiest ways to inject a little spring into your wardrobe is to break out the light wash denim. Wearing a jacket or pants in a lighter color can deliver an unexpected freshness, and brighten up your whole look in a way that's easy for anyone to achieve. A couple of our favorites that have arrived recently are the Miss Me Couture White Denim Jacket
, and the Flying Monkey Light Wash Skinny Jean
Nothing says "spring!" like pastels, and we have such an abundance of these soft colors on our site that it was hard to narrow it down to my favorite pieces we offer. The Cut It Out Lace Dress
from Lush is one of my favorites (and one I couldn't resist adding to my own closet). The boning and layered fabric in the bust area of this delicate dress gives coverage without sacrificing the svelte lines of the design. This dress shouts "garden party!" or "picnic!" to me, and it's a great piece to take from spring to summer. Sis Sis has also been coming out with some really great things in spring-centric pastels and sheer materials, and the Dontcha Flow Tank
is one that gives off an easy, wearable vibe, and can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Spring is all about showcasing feminine pieces, and small details like lace or cutouts can help lend your outfit a softer look, while still keeping things interesting. The designers we love, like Lush
and Sis Sis
have been sending us tons of really great pieces that feature these sweet little details. The Lush Bring Lacey Back Top
comes in either white or teal, and features a cropped hem and lace tulip opening in the back, with little gold buttons that lend a delicate vibe to this top. The lace look isn't just restricted to tops, as the Lucy Paris Lace Shorts
clearly prove. These sweet little shorts can soften up your outfit in a snap, try wearing these with some embellished flats
and a casual top for a look that will turn heads.
Floral prints are everywhere, and if you're looking for one really great spring statement piece, floral is a perfect choice. Ranging from large print to small, and in every color imaginable, floral is the perfect addition to freshen up your wardrobe. I love the Floral Skinny Ankle Pants
from Flying Monkey
, and the Sis Sis Joys Of Spring Dress
. Floral pants make a strong statement, so be sure to keep your top half looking simple. The Joys of Spring Dress is dead simple to wear, and features sweet details like a ruffle along the neckline, and racerback with a white lined zipper.
Above all, spring is about the fresh renewal of the season, so don't be afraid to try new things! Inject a delicate and feminine vibe into your wardrobe with statement pieces softened up with ladylike details and you can't miss. For more style inspiration, head over to our Spring Lookbook
