Nothing feels more like Summer than flowy linen pants. When you get tired of wearing jeans or skirts in warmer weather, you can look stylish in the new looks for pants this season. Wide-legged or straight-legged, long or gauchos, the look is a sleek body-skimming top to create the new silhouette. I'm loving the look of these Jackson Linen Wide-Leg Pants from Banana Republic ($69). The tie front waist and large pocket are a fun decorative touch.
I'm definitely a stripe lover and am loving the new trend of vertical stripes. This BCBG Striped Boatneck dress ($110) looks totally chic and I love the wide waist tie. Vertical stripes in varying widths are also the most flattering for your body shape. If you are going for black and white, add some accessories with color, my favorites are red and green. See more in the slideshow at Stylehive.
Sandal season is here and the new trend I'm spotting is jeweled sandals. I love these Prada Jeweled Sandals ($490 at Saks) in gold. Beautiful, no? From striking baubles, intricate beads, to gold or studded adorments, sandals get accessorized this Summer.
The return of the jelly flats has come back with more fashionable styles than I could have ever imagined. My favorite is the Melissa Campana Corallo Jelly Ballet Flats. The cutout design and sparkly gittery detail looks oh so stylish! They are $60 at Saks but you can get them for 25% off with the Friends & Family Sale going on today through April 19. Just enter in the code SFAFAM9 at checkout.
