Spring into Style 2013

Well, it’s cold (finally) in Atlanta, but a belle is already planning her Spring wardrobe. I mean, what fashionista isn’t?!

The sis and I were invited to attend Belk’s Spring preview (read fall 2012 here) and were giddy with excitement by all the beautiful things we saw. The uber fashionable Arlene Goldstein, Vice President of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction, presented on all the new trends.

I apologize we didn’t tweet our looks out that day. If I must say so myself, a belle was super stylish for the event–Tamika even had on 3″ heels!!!

As you all know, we are deeply proud of being Southern. We love shopping at Belk and are always excited with the quality of clothing they have. Without further adieu, let’s go into what’s going to be hot for the Spring. As Goldstein says, GO BOLD OR GO HOME! It’s all about the color!

Chunky necklaces are here to stay, so run out and buy them. Get you a nasty neckpiece. Don’t be afraid of BRIGHT colors when it comes to your jewelry. As the sis likes to say, accessories can make an outfit pop.

For starters, one of the big colors for the Spring is green. Wear green, but don’t be green with envy!

We have some similar shoes we’ll be posing in soon!

Peplum is going to be huge for the season! It is NOT going out of style. You can wear peplum shirts, jackets, dresses, etc. Trust, that Tamika and I will be prancing around town in peplum my darlings.

We’ll talk about more Spring styles in the coming weeks and show you what we’re rocking.  Trust that you’ll want to see a belle in her springtime attire. Stay tuned!

Are you ready for the Spring?

  1. I like the shoes and the peplum shirt. . I would like to add some color to my wardrobe for the spring/summer and green is my favorite color. I actually got a light green blazer from a consignment shop at the end of last year that I am excited about wearing during the spring!

  2. I’ve always wanted to move to Atlanta! Seems like a beautifully vibrant city. =)

    Fabulous looks! I need to turn myself into a fashionista this year.. I really do. (Throws out the old wardrobe and starts shopping for the new!)

    1. Aren’t those purses gorge Jan!! Michele, we don’t have any pictures of ourselves at the event…sorry. LaTasha, can’t wait to see your green blazer. It is the IT color for the season!!

      Carrie, we can help you become a fashionista! Please keep in touch so we can connect. We LOVE Atlanta! Thanks for all your sweet comments everyone! Raijean, we cannot wait either!

  3. Okay, so I received a peplum top for Christmas and I am excited (and slightly nervous!) to incorporate it into my wardrobe. It is such a statement look and I want to make sure I don’t look forced wearing it… BUT I am now inspired to try it out!!!!
