3 Spring Styles to Try

If you haven’t yet seen the blog The Man Repeller, I’d highly suggest that you go check it out. I feel as though this blogger has finally put a name to an ailment that millions of women suffer from: wearing a trendy outfit that men just DON’T GET, or even are totally repelled by. I mean, let’s face it… women tend to dress for one another rather than to impress men. I was so happy to realize that I’m not the only one whose sartorial dreams have been crushed when a boyfriend wrinkles up his nose and says, “you look nice… but why are the sleeves so puffy?” They are puffy because it LOOKS CUTE AND NORMAL SLEEVES ARE BORING. Why must I explain this every time?

With all of this said, I’ve decided to pull out a few ideas for spring that I’d really love to try, whether the men in my life approve or not.

Colorful Trousers — I’m definitely a skirts and dresses kind of girl during the warmer months because they are girly and comfortable. Lately though, I can’t get enough of structured-looking trousers in fun colors. This fun blue pair from ASOS might be a nice transition pair to other colors (orange? pastels?)

Cropped Top — Spending the majority of my childhood in the 90s gives me an instant shudder down my spine when I think of cropped tops (and visible thongs under low-rider jeans, and butterfly tattoos, amongst other things). However, I’ve seen some really adorable cropped light sweaters styled over longer tops that look really sweet without showing all the skin, like this H&M sweater in the February issue of Lucky Magazine (Photo: Anne Menke).

Bright Accessories — In the past, I’ve never been terribly interested in accessories in general. I recently had an epiphany when I realized how drastically accessories can spice up a plain outfit though. I love super colorful accessories that have a fun, not-so-serious feel to them. Right now, I’m working on a DIY project to make my own version of this Proenza Schouler necklace that I found on Honestly WTF.

      So cute, right? I’ll post about it when I finally finish it… they aren’t hard to make, I’m just terrible at finishing projects I start in a timely manner 🙂
