Look cute now! 3 ways to nail the ladylike trend


 
Hi again, GL readers! It's Sloane from Sailing the Sea of Style. For my second post on how to wear the biggest spring trends, I’m gonna show you a fave of mine: ladylike. People often have the misconception that dressing ladylike means frumpy and old lady. Instead, I’ll show you how you can take the trend in a flirty direction with sweet details and bold hues.

 

SCHOOL:

For day, it's important to keep the look simple but sweet. A lacy collar top is easy and only a tad dressier than your go-to white tee. Add bold printed jeans. I like a lighter wash for spring, and the little bit of distressing means things aren’t too presh. Complete your outfit with blush flats and a bow bracelet.

NIGHT OUT:

Nail the party girl look with a mashup of bright shades and femme fabrics. Pick a pretty peach lacy number and pair with metallic heels. A nude frame clutch is classic. Add an arm party of blingy bangles (the bow one is my fave) for the finishing touch.

WEEKEND:

Here’s a good question: Why don't you wear a dress this weekend? A drop waist frock with a lacy collar is causal enough for everyday but still looks a little special. Add ankle strap flats, glitzy earrings for a touch of sparkle and a mint frame handbag. Gorge!

My top five tips for looking ladylike-lovely:

1. Your look doesn’t have to veer old lady. Keep things cute and fun with sparkly details.

2. Don’t shy away from color! Bring out the brights.

3. Keep jewelry simple and sweet. Bows, tiny hearts and shiny studs are perfect.

4. Lace always works.

5. Have fun with your makeup. Try a cat-eye or a rosy blush or a pink pout. Up to you!
