Trend: Fringe

Of all the summer trends, fringe is the toughest one for me. Living in Nashville, I tend to see a lot of vintage fringe jackets and bags, and while I think they look great, my personal style doesn't really lend itself to many fringe-worthy outfits. (I'm more of a sequins girl.) I figured there had to be something fringe-tastic out there for the gal whose style isn't always boho chic. Thanks mainly to the Kate Moss TopShop collection, I found several pieces I wouldn't mind adding to my wardrobe. The Kate Moss dress reminds me of a gorgeous fringe dress Amanda Valentine created for one of her first collections. That dress could move and I'm sure this TopShop version looks just as sexy and cool when you walk. The Rebecca Minkoff cuff and Steve Madden handbag are both under $100, so one of those could be my first fringe purchase. Click on each of the items below for more info. How do you wear your fringe?

How To Wear It: Wilt Tank Dress

I'm ready for the warm weather to get here for good so I can finally wear my new Wilt paneled tank dress. I will live in this dress this summer and thanks to Soca Clothing for gifting it to me after I hosted the Chaser 'Tee' Party during Nashville Fashion Week. I love tank dresses like this, because they're fun to layer on the jewelry and they're perfect for those sweltering summer days. I'm having a turquoise jewelry moment, so you'll probably start seeing a lot of it in my style sets this spring/summer.

How To Wear It: Cropped Overalls

I'm having an overalls moment. I remember being a kid shopping with my mom and my aunts to find the perfect pair of OshKosh B'Gosh bib overalls for my cousins. Fast forward some years and here we are. The overall is now the more practical version of its chic jumpsuit cousin. Just because overalls may look casual, doesn't mean you need to style them that way. I'm on the search for the perfect pair to get me through festival season this year. This navy crop ankle pair from Goodnight Macaroon may be just what I need.
