Mixing Classic + Trendy


It's time to make room for color in your closet! A simple yet elegant look like this has the perfect hint of color for spring, and can go from day to night. This particular look is a gorgeous and subtle mix of classic and trendy pieces. 

A long pink coat is the latest it-girl item, so get it before it’s gone! Even though so many are sold out at various retailers, this Topshop blush coat is the perfect way to add color to your spring wardrobe. Try draping it over your shoulders to show off these other awesome pieces.

These Topshop cigarette trousers are versatile and slimming, thus perfect for any event. And when you invest in high-quality shoes like these Valentino pumps, you don’t have to buy a cheap pair every other month. Next, a billowy top is the perfect companion for slimming trousers, so invest in one like this Ann Tayor Popover Blouse.

If your budget doesn't allow for investment pieces, Nordstrom Rack and Last Call are awesome places to find these designers at clearance prices. With these essentials, you'll gracefully transition into pretty pastels.
