Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl: The Maxi Skirt

Another installment of Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl! This week we are styling the maxi skirt and our favorite is the Lani foldover one. Soft jersey and a fold over waist band makes for easy breezy styling. The best thing about this skirt is that anything goes! We went with spring’s current trends; a chambray button up, a coral dolman, and tribal inspired tee.

#1 – Free People‘s slightly distressed chambray button gives this skirt a casual vibe. We paired it with Free People‘s lace bralette for a little peek-a-boo look and a matching necklace. Knot the blouse to add shape and emphasize your waist.

#2 – Coral is the color of spring! We styled the skirt with our favorite Michael Stars short sleeve dolman. Add a belt and long necklaces for boho chic.

#3 – Join the tribe! Chaser is always California cool. We love this headdress tee with Michael Stars’ cream shrug. With turquoise necklaces and Chan Luu‘s wrap bracelet you will be ready summer.

Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl: Colored Denim

Another installment of Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl! This week we are styling colored denim, another hot trend for Spring 2012. Hudson has done it best with their pastel colors and the softest denim. We styled the Hudson Nico Skinny in berry & cherry. We also styled the Hampton Cuffed short in Lemon. Check it out:

#1 – Give it texture: We love this berry pastel jean and decided it needed a punch of color and texture. Perfectly paired with Free People’s crochet crop top and neutral accessories you will be ready for where ever the day may take you!

#2 – Stripe it up: Michael Stars’ striped top gives the contrast this pastel lemon short needs. Keep it casual with a woven fedora or wide brimmed hat.

#3 – White? Why not?: When in doubt white is the ultimate backdrop for any colored denim. It lets your pants do all the walking and talking! This way you can add a fabulous scarf and compliment your daring and darling denim.
