Tis the season for new shades!
From dresses to shirts, shorts to jeans, embellishment and hardware on clothes are super hot this spring and summer.
Embellishment on necklines is a huge trend. Choosing a shirt with an embellished neckline allows you to accessorize other areas of your outfit instead of adding a necklace. With a detail on the neckline, you outfit will look more stylish, giving you an accessorized look.

Spring tops are popping up everywhere that have removable necklaces, a perfect way to add accessories without having to think a lot about which one to choose. An added plus is you easily remove it when you have to wash your clothes!
This top is from ASOS.com and it has a detachable necklace... super cute!
Studs, beading and rhinestones seem to be everywhere, from shoes to shirts; these accents add spice to any piece.
Studs give you that edginess while keeping up with that rocker 80’s trend that is lingering this season. You can find this hardware on anything from clutches to shoes, to a little black dress or a jacket, whatever your style is there is something studded out there for you! Start with an accessory piece, like a studded belt over a cute dress, or over sized tee and go from there.
Rhinestones add a glam factor to any outfit. Jewels scattered around a top spice up a normal tee.
One of my favorite looks is the boyfriend tee with an embellished breast pocket! Super cute and a great way to spice up a plain tee.
This boyfriend tee is from Express. I have 3. I have 2 that are plain which I put sequins tops under and one with a rhinestone pocket... I LOVE these tees! They are so versatile. This is one of my favorite ways to wear it, only I like to drape one side off the shoulder.
With sequin details, ranging from a strip on the sleeve to a flower focal point sequins should be in your spring wardrobe.
I absoulutely LOVE this one from Mango... it has embellishment on the pocket AND the shoulder: FABULOUS!

The famous sequin tanks are everywhere! Put it under a boyfriend tee with some skinny jeans and you have a super cute school look.
Graphic tees are another great way to sport this trend. Tees are adding the bling effect. There are feminine v-necks with flowers made of sequins or rocker tees with a saying and studs, whatever your style there is one out there for you!
Although the neckline is the most popular place to add embellishment, shoulders are getting a lot of attention this season. With trends bringing focus to women’s shoulders, this added detail is perfect without taking the big plunge and wearing shoulder pads or a strong shoulder piece.
Remember fashion is fun. It is uniquely you.
Hey Dolls! Ruffles are totally in ... AGAIN!
With many designers incorporating ruffles into their runway looks, it’s safe to say this fun and flirty trend is still “haute” this spring season.
With so many trends out there, ruffles have been a fashion staple for a while now. The look of ruffles this spring include lose, flowing ruffles, that create a soft romantic look, and tight, tiered ruffles, that make a bold statement when added to any outfit.

Ruffles are showing up on everything from skirts to shirts, sweaters to shoes, this trend is definitely one to try. It adds a spark of femininity while having a flirty edge to any outfit.
At the 2010 Golden Globes, many celebrity icons, including Heidi Klum and Zoe Saldana, wore this trend, which increased the popularity.
Tiered dresses and ruffled skirts are great choices for this spring and summer season. Whether it’s a short tiered tube dress or a denim ruffled skirt. These pieces will give you that fashionista edge. Pair a ruffled skirt with a form fitting top, cute belt, bangles and wedges and you will look super cute while staying stylish. Add a military shirt into the mix, and your style just jumped up another notch.

Designers like Chloé, used ruffles to create a bohemian chic look while Marc Jacobs used an abundance of ruffles to add that va va voom to nearly half of his spring collection.
This oh-so-hot trend works with almost any look and it can be really forgiving if worn right. * Be careful though, because ruffles do add volume, so make sure it’s a flattering fit. Since they tend to flow outwards, this trend can sometimes make you look bigger than you are.
Some pieces that have ruffles include:
With big to small ruffles, flowing to tight, this trend has taken over. Whatever your style is, ruffles can fit into your wardrobe. This trend gives you the look of sweet seduction.
Remember, fashion is fun. It is uniquely you!
