If it were up to me I would be wearing Karolina Kurkova’s outfit right now (or at least some cheaper version of it).  Since I can’t exaclty fit into anything even remotely close to this right now I did the next best thing – a copycat!  I love the pop of pink against the preppier pullover and button down and how she paired it with distressed jeans and chevron striped heels. It’s perfection!

Effortless Stripes

Stripes are my favorite pattern and I’m always looking for ways to incorporate them into my outfits.  It’s such a classic pattern that will never go out of style and I just love the way it gives outfits an effortless laid back feel.  Best of all stripes are super easy to dress up or down and can be worn as an accent in the form of accessories or even shoes.   During the warmer seasons stripe exude a nautical vibe but it’s such a versatile pattern that it can stand on its own in any season and in any color (although my personal fave is basic black and white).  Famous fashionista’s like Olivia Palermo and Kim Kardashian wear stripes flawlessly year after year but you don’t need to break the bank to wear this trend. Check out some cool striped pieces from Target below and how to incorporate them into your spring wardrobe.  Tip:  When shopping for stripes always keep in mind that the smaller the stripe the smaller you look – and that goes for accessories as well.

A striped linen blazer will give any of your basic favorites a polished look.  Wear over a tank or tee with cut off shorts or jeans.

Striped Linen Blazer – $30 | Denim Shorts – $20 | Graphic Tee – $18 | Quilted Cross Body Bag – $19.99 | Thong Sandals – $19.99

Striped tank tops are a must have for every season and style!  I have probably a dozen in tons of colors and styles and I let them peek out underneath tees, sweaters and jackets.

Stripe Cowl Neck Tank – $14.99 | Pleated Maxi Skirt – $20 | Pullover Shrug – $11 | Laverne Flip Flops – $14.99 | Chiffon Crossbody – $26.99 | Straw Fedora – $12.99

I love me a striped skirt!  A casual “Audrey Hepburn” like piece that’s perfect for spring and summer nights.

Stripe Skirt – $19.99 | Lace Top – $17.99 | Stripe Thong Sandal – $19.99 | Envelope Clutch – $19.99

A striped boat neck sweater is the epitome of spring!  Give it a go with bright skinny jeans and heels.

This peplum and stripe dress is so chic and flattering (click here to see Kourtney Kardashian in a peplum and stripe outfit).  The peplum can help create curves and flatter those who have them while the thin stripes provide all the style.  Pair with a denim jacket and a colored belt for some extra oomph.

It’s Time for Springtime.

Celebrity Copycat: Olivia Palermo’s Look for Less!

Another flawless look from Olivia Palermo. Her simple white dress is perfectly complimented by the colors in her jacket, shoes and accessories that look like a pretty bowl of fruit.  I love it!  Tip:  These are perfect transitional pieces and you can easily create two separate outfits from them. Wear the white dress with any winter sweater, the tights for colder days or pair the blazer and heels with leggings and a tee.  Get Olivia’s look for less with pieces from Delia’s, Zara and more!
