6 Super Easy Ways to Wear Spring's Hottest Trends
THE TREND: A Ruffle Skirt
Try a ruffle skirt in a solid color for a bolder take on the feminine trend, and pair it with one of spring's most popular silhouettes, the one-shoulder top. A silk lace-up flat and a ring handle tote make the perfect accessories.

THE TREND: An Off-the-Shoulder Dress
This season’s must-have flowy dress silhouette is off-the-shouder in a light fabric (like this striped dress with a tie-waist detail). Pair this look with a simple bag, like this ring handle style in a matching hue, and incorporate more color with your shoes and earrings. A yellow slide capitalizes on another trend for spring.

THE TREND: Cropped Frayed Denim
When it comes to scoring the ultimate denim look, it's time to trade in your straight-leg denim for a wider-cut cropped version. Pair them with bold accessories, like a magenta mule, a basket bag and a statement circular earring.

THE TREND: A Blouse With Voluminous Sleeves
One way to take your blouses up a notch this season is with a big, billowy design with voluminous sleeves. Pair it with a ruffled skirt (bonus points for a pattern inspired by men’s shirting) that cinches at the waist to accentuate your figure. Finish the look with satin slides and retro hoops.

THE TREND: A Bold Striped Top
Bold, bright stripes are an easy way to make a statement this spring -- be it on tops, dresses or skirts. To keep the look from becoming too busy, pair it with a solid bottom and simple accessories that don't compete with the statement piece. If you want to add a little something extra, try a matching sandal with ruffles, like these slides.
