10 Ways To Revive Your Old Pieces - Old & New Spring Remix.

In this post I am reviewing some of the new, hot items available on the market but also going back into my closet to revive and rediscover once beloved pieces that are still very much wearable and classic.

1. In this first look I took the boxy shapes, cropped top from last summer and tweed jacket, and loosened the look up with long wide pants. 

Top:  Someday Lovin , Jacket: Alberta Ferretti (old) also love this  one  , Blazer: H&M (old) s imilar here , Pants:  Daily Look , Bag: Luis Vuitton (old) love this  one  , Necklace: Betsy Johnson (old), love this one from  Emerald Park Jewelry  too.

2. This next look is inspired by Spring- innocent ingénue, all sweetness and light. Spring is here, and with it comes a new crop of florals, pair them with your old pastels or neutrals in retro but edgy style. Love this A-Line dress by Ellen Tracy. 

Dress:  Ellen Tracy , Blazer: Gant (old)  similar here , Shoes: Christian Louboutin(old) love  these flats  as an alternative, Tote: Henri Bendel (sold out), love this  one  too, Bracelets: David Yurman and Alexis Bittar (old), love this one from  Emerald Park Jewelry , Fedora: TopShop

3. Dressing down for the most challenging role of my life- motherhood. You will catch me wearing no make up, linen wide pants and stripe loose top. If you desire to dress up this look a bit, below I added some bohemian elements. 

Top: French Connection (old), I like this  one  , Coat:  Isabel Marant , Pants:  Joie , Pumps:  Valentino , Tote: Henri Bendel sold out, Earrings: Bling Jewelry (love these from  Emerald Park Jewelry  ,) Bracelet:  Kate Spade , Sunglasses:  Ray-Ban

4. I love to dress down, but I'm the queen of boho and Spanish influenced style. I'll look at Rachel Zoe and say, yeah, that's cool, I'll rock that. I won't ever spend the money she does, though. Except for shoes and earrings most of these items are from new collections by Tory Burch and IRO. 

Top:  Tory Burch , Jacket:  IRO , Jeans:  Page , Pumps: Christian Loubouitn (old) love these but I am sure  these  are super uncomfortable, Bag: Deux Lux (soldo out), Earrings: Belk (old) love these from  Emerald Park Jewlry , Sunglasses:  Thierry Lasry

5. Pleats have been seen on the streets a lot lately: skirts, flouncy white shirts, spring coats etc. Street style is the fashion of our culture, and so for me, it is the way onward. It's all in the way we mix and match the pieces. You can mix this blouse with your worn-out boyfriend jeans, shorts or pencils skirts. 

Top: Alice+Olivia (sold out at Bloomingdales, I like  this one  too), Trouser: Jhonathan Saunders (old) absolutely love  these pants , Flats: Bureberry (old) similar  here , Bag: Versace (sold out), Earrings:  Blue Canday , Watch:  Peugeot , Bracelet: Liz Clairbone or this one from E merald Park Jewelry , Ring Set:  T&C

6.  Cape-style sleeves, embroidered and back cutout with tiered overlay, this season's sexiest dresses take their cues from traditional Mexican way of dressing. Don't forget to find your favorite vintage jewelry pieces to complete this look. 

Dress:  Free People,  Cardigan: H&M (old)  similar here , Boots: Taryn Rose (old)  similar here , Bag: Saint Laurent (sold out), Choker: Mango love  this one  too, Belt: Stella McCartney,  similar here

7. A new breed of suit has swept in this spring, coming directly from DVF SS16 Collection. Her new fashion maturity features the arrival of such elements of decent dressing as "safari styling,"glamorous taupe-grey linen, point collar, utility style front pockets and playful rainbow fringing twist. 

Top: European Culture (old) similar concept  here , Jacket:  Diane Von Furstenberg , Pants:   Diane Von Furstenberg , Shoes:  Michael Micahel Kors , Bag: Gucci (sold out), Earrings: Blink Jewelry, or these from  Emerald Park Jewelry , Bracelets:  David Yurman  and  Belk , Sunglasses:  Saint Laurent

8. Strong, romantic and feminine. This dress by Adelyn Rae suggests a wistful prettiness and openness, taking harbor in the formality of trapeze structure. Pair it with a tried oversize trench, a cropped peacoat or a bomber jacket.

Dress:  Adelyn Rae , Trench:  Hobbs Saskia , Shoes:  Joie , Bag:  Relaxfeel , Watch:  Micahel Kors , You can accessorize with this bracelet from  Emerald Park Jewelry  and Sunglasses:  Forever 21

9. Summer and spring as seasons are laid-back, which means you can play more with comfortable shirts and jeans or shorts. Once you're comfortable with your base, you can expand onto your accessories. 

Top:  Madewell , Blazer:  Alice&You , Jeans: Abercrombie&Fitch (old)  similar here , Shoes: Joie , Crossbody:  Flora Bella , Bracelets: Zaful and Boho Betty ( I love this one from  Emerald Park Jewelry ), Necklace:  Forever21

10. Bejeweled or silk pleated tops and pleated mini skirts are turning up the heat this spring.  Chic European meets bohemian is a sudden expansion of girlie femininity. Let's not forget to accessorize heavily with jewelry for maximum glamour effect. 

Cardigan: Eileen Fisher (old) like this  one  too, Top: Marc by Marc Jacobs (not available) here is another stunning  top,  Skirt: Alexander McQueen (old)  similar here , Shoes: Dior (old) love  these , Tote: Henri Bendel (sold out)  love this one too .

Short Story For Every Woman!

A chic jean jacket is the mini's perfect partner.

End of Summer's higher-than-ever hemlines are the new fashion favorites for the girl who's on the go. When going super short, replace the mile-high stiletto with chic flats- there are plenty to choose from this season.

This is also a perfect season to start your private collection of bracelets, bangles and cuffs.

Your everyday bag-downsized to a perfectly portable purse or clutch-in wear-with-everything neutral.

For the next few weeks you can still pair your gladiator natural leather sandals with skinny pants or a casual mini skirt like the one Jamie is wearing on the photos.

On the weekends, keep it simple and sporty with basic tees, knits and denim jackets. With a sexy mini at night, a looser top will keep the proportions right.

It's a very body-conscious look, yet the mini skirt can be very flattering. Making it work depends on color- prints can be a really great choice- and other elements of your outfit.

THE MINI

The skirt of the season has reached new heights- and whether it's scandalously skintight, flouncy and flirty, or slim and sophisticated, there's a suitable style for everyone.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 20S

TOP: MAURICES, COAT: ARTIZIA, SKIRT: MANGO, SHOES: SHOPAKIRA, BAG: DIANE VON FRUSTENBERG, NECKLACE: ECLETCTICA VINTAGE, BANGLES: MONKI, WRAP BRACELET: MCQ, SUNGLASSES: LINDA FARROW

Keep the concept of mini relative: In your 20s, a traffic-stopping suede mini, graphic tank top and easy silhouette Italian wool coat are perfect for brave fashion followers. Bold but totally acceptable. Just remember you must feel comfortable with the length. If you feel as if you're baring too much, then most likely you are.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 30S

SWEATER: ZARA, BLOUSE: UNIQLO, SKIRT: NEW LOOK, SHOES: NINE WEST, BAG: MARNI, BRACELET: CHAN LUU, EARRING STUDS: EDDIE BORGO, BEANIE: COAL THRIFT, SUNGLASSES: FLOWER2

Those in their 30s can still go short-short- depending on whether it's for day, night, work, or weekend. The shorter the skirt, the lower the heel.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 40S

TOP: GLAMOUROUS, COAT: MAX MARA, MINI SKIRT: ARMANI, BOOTIES: BCBG, BAG: BURBERRY, CUFF RING: NASTY DRESS, NECKLACE: ALEXIS BITTAR, SUNGLASSES: ILLESTEVA

Okay in your 40s you are most likely thinking an inch or two above the knee but on rare occasions it is absolutely allowed, especially to those who do not want to hide their legs just yet, to put on a flirty, textured mini and kitten heels to dress it up a bit. Especially when there is no cleavage involved, and the blouse is not fitted. Sexy and elegant.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 50S

CARDIGAN: TORY BURCH, SHIRT: TOP SHOP, SKIRT: ZAC POSEN, SATCHEL: FENDI, EARRINGS: KATE SPADE, BRACELET: DAVID YURMAN, SCARF: MAGASCHONI, SANDALS: RAMARIM

In your 50s you can pair pumps or heeled sandals with just-above-the knee skirt for a more sophisticated look. Obviously you don't always have to look like a librarian but it is a very flattering look. If you wear loafers or flat shoes you can easily rise your hemline an inch or two above your knees.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 60S

SWEATER: BARBARA BUI, CAPE: VALENTINO, SKIRT: THEORY, BOOTIES: BANDOLINO EVORA, CLUTCH: DOROTHY PERKINS, BRACELET: NANCY GONZALEZ, EARRINGS: EDDIE BORGO,

In their 60s+ it is safe to say women should stick to clean and simple just above the knee skirts in a conservative solid color or black and white patterns, but I am also a fan of dark florals and tweed pastels. I find that mature women who do go for brighter colors and busier patterns are fearless fashionistas no matter what age.

 

HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE CURVY

SHORT SLEEVE SWEATER: MBJ, JACKET: RIVER ISLAND, SKIRT: ROMWE, SANDALS: DSQUARED2, BAG: TOM FORD, EARRINGS: SONOMA LIFE, LEATHER BRACELET: MANGO, RED BRACELET: VINTAGE, SUEDE BRACELET: GREENBEANS BY EMILY & ASHLEY, LEATHER GLOVES: VALENTINO, HEAD WRAP: CARA, SUNGLASSES: ILLESTEVEA

SHORT SLEEVE SWEATER: MBJ, JACKET: RIVER ISLAND, SKIRT: ROMWE, SANDALS: DSQUARED2, BAG: TOM FORD, EARRINGS: SONOMA LIFE, LEATHER BRACELET: MANGO, RED BRACELET: VINTAGE, SUEDE BRACELET: GREENBEANS BY EMILY & ASHLEY, LEATHER GLOVES: VALENTINO, HEAD WRAP: CARA, SUNGLASSES: ILLESTEVEA

For the more curvy and top-heavy, a bright-colored or single breasted in beige or cream color skirt with a neutral or black shirt creates the proper balance

HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE BOTTOM-HEAVY

CARDIGAN: ROMWE, SHIRT: R13, SKIRT: NEW LOOK, BOOTIES: GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI, WRISTLET: VERA BRADELY, EARRINGS: CHANEL, BANGLE: NEW LOOK, HAT: MICHAEL STARS, SUNGLASSES: VINCE CAMUTO

 A fuller-figured woman, especially if she is bottom-heavy, should wear a more A-line skirt and pair it with a simple top, like a button-down shirt or blouse, keeping the colors dark for slimmer silhouette.

HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE SLIM-HIPPED

SHIRT: KARL LAGERFELD, COAT: GANT, SKIRT: CHLOE, BOOTS: JEFFREY CAMPELL, BAG: MICHAEL BY MICHAEL KORS, EARRINGS: ACCESSORIZE, BANGLE: ARMENTA

SHIRT: KARL LAGERFELD, COAT: GANT, SKIRT: CHLOE, BOOTS: JEFFREY CAMPELL, BAG: MICHAEL BY MICHAEL KORS, EARRINGS: ACCESSORIZE, BANGLE: ARMENTA

A slim-hipped woman should pick a mini with a bit of a flair and pair it with a wispy top, nipped in slightly at the waist to create curves.

Colder Spring Days. Pink Chic: 5 Pink Spring Trends You'll Love!

Yet, another option for colder spring days from our chilly March photo-shoot.

More and more women are mixing destroyed denim jeans with cropped tops, denim shirts and leather biker jackets. You can also cuddle up in an extra soft, oversize turtleneck poncho.  

With Jamie’s look I think we got the balance right. The key to this look are multipurpose items that will give your wardrobe more mileage. And mileage is what most women are looking for anyways. Classic pieces that never go out of style.

Then, lest we forget, there’s the jewelry. Today it’s gold hoops, leather bracelets and watch.

Bag amped with rock & roll details- fringe and studs- turns up the volume on gutsy glamour.

Once again special thanks to our Fashion contributors: photographer John Rounds, his images are beyond reproach, if there is an essence to fashion, he has captured it, and Make-Up Artist Danika Clevenstine who creates gorgeous faces every day.
