Spring Summer Must Haves: 13 Pieces To Get Stat

Spring, your warmth is felt and these are the trends that are going to be going strong now, through the summer and beyond.

1. Ruffles

I love ruffles! They're girly and you can sass them up with sandals or toughen them up with some booties.

5. Slip Dresses

Slip dresses are a call to the 90's and pretty easy to wear anytime.  Wear them with sandals, booties, white sneakers or high-tops during the day.  Throw on a jacket or a T-shirt underneath for a more relaxed look.

I love off the shoulder blouses and dresses, they're fun, flirty, cheeky and oh so boho chic. Show a little skin.
