The key to striking a chic chord in Spring? Take on any of these six trends, for a look that’s pitch-perfect romance!
Sun-drenched and washed like watercolors, florals blooming in muted, dreamy shades are ultra romantic, but equally dolled up and sexy when paired with a sultry, red lip or black lace.

Keep it chic with a cutout body-con, or show off a lacey bra under a sheer top and skirt around an X-rating with an opaque bottom.

No matter if you wear them messy and side-swiped, intertwined with ribbon, color, or as a new, chic way to revamp your up-do, braids are just plain pretty.

ALL RUFFLED UP
Undeniably feminine, ruffles get reworked this spring with zipper embellishments, lots of tiers and prints that fit into any wardrobe—from rock-infused to flirty-chic. Swap your heart on your sleeve with a ruffled neckline and you’re sure to make a statement.

Dark glamour reigns even in the sunshine of spring this year. Vamp up your pout with deep-mulberry shades to tints as dark as black, for a look that has attitude while still maintaining major sex appeal.

Toss the towel in on pink for its coral-hued counterpart, and a look that’s part sorbet, part seaside in appeal. Feminine, sweet and way more chic than cheesy pink.
