To help fashion-lovers maximize their wardrobe this Spring, Ontario Mills invited me to ambush a few fashionistas to gift them with this springs essential trend pieces as part of their first-ever, month-long Accessorize Your Spring Sale, which ends on May 31.
So to get the party started, so-to-say, I went to three of my favorite shops and picked essentials from the top three Spring trends (stripes, florals and metallic) that anyone could add to their existing wardrobe and get Spring ready.
Not only are stripes the trend that most women associate with Spring, (blue and white anyone?), but men are now enjoying this trend because of its versatility.
For the stripe trend I stopped by the Original Penguin boutique, and picked a light tan bowling hat with a striped ribbon and paired it with with horizontal striped socks, that even the most fashion adversed men will love and wear beyond Spring.
While florals seemed to have been relegated to the ladies that brunch crowd, the modern fashionista can also select floral pieces that don't overwhelm their simple style.
Inspired by the blue hues of Santa Monica beach I so love, I selected floral-inspired pieces from J. Crew for their modern take on traditional stonework and fabrics found in the American Southwest to style this floral-adversed gal.
I LOVE metallics, but I especially love how gold, silver or bronze will make the most casual outfits look more pulled together.
So for this trend I mixed rose gold aviators with a simple knotted gold metal bracelet from
Fossil, because who said you can't mix metallics?
