Special occasion fashion tips

Spring is finally in full bloom and so are all of the great celebrations of the season, such as Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduations, weddings, and more!

It's a beautiful time of year to step out in your Sunday best looking perfectly polished and exquisitely prim and proper. With so many fabulous fashions to choose from this season, we tried to make your job a bit easier by picking our favorite must have trends and styles to dress in for your next special occasion! 

1. Lavish Lace

BCBG, $248

Lace has made a huge comeback this season and we just love the vibe! Lace is the perfect classic and fantastically feminine material to go to for that picture perfect outfit. Pastel and white colored lace are wonderful choices for spring. An A-line dress, shift, or peplum shape dress in this material would be appropriate for any age group. Add a beautiful pearl necklace to add one more dimension of luxe to this look and you're ready to go!

2. Ravishing Retro

Club Monaco, $249

Retro patterns and cuts are always a fun and interesting design when it comes to finding that perfect dress with a fresh classic look. We love this cool print coupled with the flare skirt shape and bold neckline. The look is very clean and tailored, and would be great for a gal in her 20's and 30's to pair with a more fashion forward shoe, such as the must-have transparent pointy pump of the season or a wedged statement shoe. The cool thing about this new take on retro is how fresh, futuristic, and fantastic it looks without showing off too much skin! 

3. Major Maxi

Piperlime, $89

Maxi dresses convey a sense of effortless glamour that we're obsessed with no matter what the occasion. Go bold and opt for a fabulous print that will make you shine and best of all, feel comfortable! We love maxi dresses that are fitted around the waist, or right above to maximize your waist so you look as tall as possible. Always remember to alter the length of your dress to cater to flats or heels. No need to break the bank hunting down your next maxi dress! All of our favorite chain stores carry great styles at affordable prices that look equally as nice as more expensive options! 

4. Pretty Peplum

Bloomingdale's, $297

Peplum dresses are the go-to silhouette for that perfect balance between something that's form fitting, yet classy. The shape is ladylike and can be worn by women of all ages. Younger gals should push the envelope a bit and look for a cool print, fabric, extra volume in the peplum, or cutouts to add a fun element to the dress. For a more conservative look, choose a length that hits right at or below the knee in a very classic nude, rose, or white tone that will work beautifully for any daytime or night event you have coming up this season. 

5. Colorful Colorblocking

J.Crew, $88

Colorblocking is still going strong and we absolutely love how easy it makes integrating some color into our wardrobes without too much thought. An easy A-line shift dress similar to this one is perfect with a great pair of flats or heels. The look is effortless, which is something we all love when we're in a rush to throw something on and be on our way. One tip to look for is to make sure the colored stripes fall on the right part of your body to accentuate certain areas and minimize others.

6. Stylish Shirtdress

Zara, $90

The shirtdress is such a classic staple year after year that we had to include this in our favorites of the season! The tailoring and buttons on a shirtdress automatically make this type of dress very polished and put together. This season we've seen tons of beautiful aztec, ethnic, and geometric patterned shirtdresses that will suit the needs of every type of fashionista out there! A bold pair of studs or a statement necklace is the perfect topping for this tres chic look!
