Stella Blouse
Ella Moss
Sold by: Shopbop

Fit Guide
Ella Moss has really nailed the season with this easy fitting, contemporary blouse. Not only is this minty green just perfect, the silhouette is even better. Flowy and easy, the rayon fabric has a wonderful drape that effortlessly shows off the high-hip length – so it’s not too long, which can be overwhelming, but long enough to flatter every figure. The short sleeve has a pretty smocking detail on the shoulder for a nice finishing touch. The channel detail down the center and along the hem adds to the ethereal look of this blouse, so you may want to add a nude cami underneath for coverage. This top looks beautiful with white jeans and heels for a casual dinner or tan linen trousers for work. If your size is sold out through the ‘shop it’ button, go to Ella Moss’ website.

Spring: A Rainbow of Candy Color

Happy Spring, Ladies! According to the calendar, we can start coming out of hibernation. And there’s no better way to welcome the new season than with a little infusion of fresh color. This season, ladylike colors are taking over in beautiful mid-tones that are so wearable. Sure, marsala is the declared “color of the year”, and there are touches of this deep brownish-red that looks so sophisticated with the whites, pale almonds, and beiges of the season that are so important. The rest of spring’s palette though, conjures up memories of our favorites colors in a bowl of yummy rainbow sherbet – and we mean that in the best possible way. They are not bright, but can best be describes as saturated versions of some much loved pastels. There are options in a medium shade of pretty pink that aren’t too vibrant or too pale, as well as touches of custardy yellows and tangerine oranges and go as bold as corals and pretty reds. In the cooler tones, shades of blue reminiscent of the pale blue sky to classic blues of the ocean, and minty greens that feel so fresh and new, can be found in all types of pretty silhouettes. Mix these with some of your favorite staple pieces in black, white, beige, navy, and shades of grey, and you’ve got some instant updates to your wardrobe that are sophisticated and downright upbeat.

Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see more of our top picks for work, after 5, and casual dressing. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

And let’s not forget a fun statement necklace to pop even the most classic outfit. J.Crew’s pink and blue floral necklace hits at just about the collarbone, so it looks great with crewnecks, scoop necks, v-necks, and split neck tops alike. Sure, it looks fabulous with navy, but it’s so pretty against any neutral and will dress up a simple sleeveless top and jeans, just as easily as it will give new life to a classic sheath dress.

Another great way to bring in a pop of spring color is in your handbag, and Kate Spade’s Spanish moss is a neutral minty green that will go with so much of your spring wardrobe. The size isn’t too big, but big enough for all your everyday essentials at a little over 10” high and 10” wide. The zip detail along the bottom is a pretty detail that also gives you a little more space in your bag. Whether you’re wearing a neutral, or color like blue, other shades of green, pinks, or oranges, this bag will be your ideal companion.

Vince - Belted Soft Cotton Pant
These Vince trousers bring the comfort of athletic inspiration to a trouser that is polished enough for a more casual day at the office. But you’ll want to wear them throughout the weekend, too, with their cleverly elasticized the waist that is concealed in the front with a belt. The soft cotton can be rolled at the cuff with a flat or heeled sandal (a block heel would look great). Add an easy button-down, a simple tank, or your favorite tee. This pale chambray blue is our top pick, but it comes in an equally neutral tan and pale balsam green.

This blushy pink/tan mix is the new neutral of the season and 525 America’s lightweight sweater has a wonderful slouch and split hem that is easy and so stylish for any casual day. It looks great with a simple pair of skinny jeans or half-tucked (just tucking in a bit of the front of the shirt) into shorts or slouchy casual pants like the Vince ones we’re showing to the right. The banded short sleeves are the perfect finish to the dropped shoulders that give the sleeve an otherwise loose fit. In XS/S or M/L the fit is easy for everyone.

For a more relaxed fit, Eileen Fisher delivers with this blue that is the shade of a perfect spring sky. It’s silk cotton, so it will be comfortable in the warmer months, yet still keep you warm in the air conditioning. It looks so pretty with white full-length slim trousers and a shell (or the coordinating shell that can also be purchased through the ‘shop it’ button) and simple nude flats or heels. You can also pair it with an unexpected medium chestnut brown or navy, which is so chic.

J.Crew - Collection Women's Ludlow Blazer
J.Crew has a couple of blazers we love this season, and this pale mint seasonless Italian wool is one of them. We are big fans of the Ludlow fit for men, and love how they reinterpreted it for a lady. It still has that menswear feel, with the 2-button closure and flap pockets, but the rest of the details are all woman. It’s a bit longer fit, hitting at the hip, in their modern fit that’s not too trim or too over-sized. The mint color provides just enough interest without being too bold, ideal for a colored blazer. It will dress up a pair of jeans and simple tank, and can be worn with any neutral trousers and blouse for a day at the office – grey, navy, and beige are particularly pretty. You can even turn it in to a suit by pairing it with its coordinating pants. If you want to play with some color, a patterned blouse with some orange in it will have a flattering contrast to the mint.

Lafayette 148 New York’s luxe quality and timeless designs are always a perfect place to invest in a new piece of clothing for the season. Their aquarium teal green is a true showstopper in this cotton sheath silhouette that is not only universally flattering in sizes up to 18, but appropriate for so many occasions. The simple crewneck and cap sleeve are great for work with a pair of nude heels. And the structured seaming gives beautiful shape to all body types for a night out or a brunch event with strappy heels in metallic or nude. If your size is sold out through the 'shop it' button, you can also buy it directly from Lafayette's website.

We always say Diane von Furstenberg knows how to flatter a woman’s figure, and this modern-fitting, pretty pink sheath is no exception. The v-neck is flattering for all bust sizes, and it’s not too low so you can wear this to work or a business dinner with ease. The black-and-white trim not only accentuates the waist for subtle definition, but makes it so easy to add black accessories – even a blazer, if you like – to complete your look. The shade of pink isn’t too bold – just enough color to make you feel like a lady.
