Spring 2011 is all about throwing your fashion rulebook out the window and trying new things. Mix it up. If you want to wear jeans and an oversized t-shirt, go for it. If, on a whim, you feel the need to don a sundress and heels just to go to the grocery store, do it. This season anything goes, so have fun with it but, most importantly, be yourself and love what you wear.

The purity of white. The intrigue of a peachy nude. The warm, soothing powers of grey. Dressing in slightly subtle, monochromatic hues keep you looking fresh and classy. Dress head to toe in white or throw on a sheer top that lets your skin peek through and you’re sure to look ravishing this spring and summer.
Boot Scootin’
There is something ridiculously sexy about boots worn with a girlie dress or skirt. Scour your favorite vintage shops for the perfect pair, match with your favorite circle skirt and get ready to turn heads. Check out Vintage Recalled in 5 Points for an awesome selection of cute vintage shoes.
A Nod to the 70s
Don’t toss all your maxi dresses out just yet, save a couple so you can channel your inner hippie goddess this spring. Over-sized, dolman sleeve tops paired with leather accessories like headbands and cuffs, will add to your earthy look perfectly. Don’t be scared to throw a little tie-dye into the mix either. Boho chic is alive again!
Bold, Vibrant Prints
With trends this season from one end of the spectrum to the other, you can go from neutral hues to a wild print, in a flash. Springs top colors are inspired straight from a wildflower garden with lavender, tropical blue, bright orange, yellow and pink. Whether it’s feminine florals or retro geometric graphics, you’re sure to find a print to strike your fancy.
