I hope you kept your black combat boots and grunge tees from the ’90s, because, if you haven’t, you are going to wish you had for spring!

The difference is that in 2013, we juxtapose them with beautiful feminine pieces like a draped neon dress (Catherine’s) and delicate necklaces (graphic, beaded necklace from Revival) instead of exclusively with the baggy oversized jeans and plaids of yore. (pictured: left)

A deconstructed tee pairs well with an oversize chunky wood necklace (hand-dyed by Heather Atkinson Art) and cut-off jean shorts (Revival) with an upcycled tee-fringe necklace by Ramona Muse (White Rabbit) styled as a belt. Spring is supposed to be fun! (pictured: below, center)

for make-up a bright lip (coral and fuchsia are huge right now!) goes a long way with simple, polished eyes. Bold double-layered lashes are a girls’ best friend when it comes to achieving maximum flutter. (pictured: below, left)

As we move into the warmth, embrace the amazing graphic prints and bold sporty styling of the modern day dress. These dresses (from Catherine’s) can be worn anywhere and even with cute sneakers, boots or heels. Let the weather and your mood be your guide. (pictured: above, right)

Graphic black and white outfits (peplum top and scarf print pants from Catherine’s) set the stage for signature sunglasses in bright colors and shapes (on models: from Revival). Sunglasses can never be too big or too bright. EVER. And, Don’t worry, the neon jeans you have still are going strong this season! Paired with expressive shoes (here platform espadrilles from Catherines and floral pumps from Revival) these heart-lifting colors brighten spring days. A fine, light cashmere sweater (from Catherine’s) with a graphic tulip motif is helpful for days that start cool and end warm. (pictured: below, left)
