Not every stylish look at fashion shows comes down the runaway—half the fun is scoping out the chic looks from the audience. The setting is the perfect stage for fashionistas to pull out their best getups for peers to fawn over.
Last week we had the pleasure of attending Charleston Fashion Week, where every day turned up enough trends to inspire a season’s worth of outfits. We’re taking cues from these six attendees to spruce up our spring wardrobes.
Add flair to business casual. Peplum tops and trousers in a funky colors—like these mustard ones worn by Look Linger Love blogger Chassity Evans—take the boring out of work staples.
Break out the fringe. A little fringe goes a long way in achieving the bohemian look that’s always so popular for spring. Pair yours with a girly dress like this one to avoid going into cowgirl territory.
Let your accessories do the talking. We love this girl’s palette and pearly neckline, but what really got us is that rocking handbag. See the panther handlebar? Major cool points. Don’t underestimate the power of accessories on days when you want to keep everything else tame.
Keep it simple. These two ladies prove how easy looking fabulous can be in the spring—just add a pastel colored dress in a flowing fabric and nude heels.
Mix trends. The eyelet peplum jacket, the Easter-hued skinny jeans, the locket—everything about fashion stylist Andrea Serrano’s outfit shouts spring. Although we admit the flower headpiece might be a little bold for the office, we’d definitely don one for brunch with the girls.
Take evening-wear into day. How do you make a lace cocktail dress work-appropriate? Add a white blazer!
Strike a balance. This trio pulls off the tough winter-to-spring transitional look effortlessly. Long sleeves and tights keep the chill at bay, while the bold colors and lightweight sheer fabrics beckon warmer days.
