This month we’ve teamed up with the cute clothing and accessories webstore Chloé Loves Charlie to bring you tips on wearing some of this seasons most accessible trends. We also have a special goodie up for grabs- one lucky Brixton Street reader will be picking up some of their own spring essentials with a $50 gift certificate to ChloeAndCharlie.com, woohoo!
This season (like so many seasons past) we’ve completely embraced simplicity. Thankfully for us, solid color basics never go out of style. Chloé Loves Charlie carries an awesome selection of simple, understated designs, but what we actually love best about the pieces are their playful, but subtle details. Simple embellishments such as shoulder ruffles, pleats, and even adorable suspenders keep pieces current and also completely wearable.

For those that want to dive deeper into the must have trends for spring, try adding some texture to your wardrobe. This spring texture and lace are major players in the game*, having appeared in some of the most memorable shows of the season. For a completely wearable look, try picking up sheer and lacy pieces in either nude, blush or peach tints. Chloé Loves Charlie has some beautiful lace details on their selection of super pretty pale peach colored dresses and skirts.

Another one of the must haves for this season is prints (and patterns). One of the major highlights have been the blocky geometrics which give nods to 60s op art influences. For an accessible look, get your geometric print on via some subdued stripe patterns. This season feel free to rock your simple striped dresses, tops, and skirts for a classic, timeless look that never goes out of style.
