Gray or stonewashed jeans, shirts, skirts, or skorts — no matter the cut it's a MUST for your spring/summer wardrobe. Pay attention to the washes. Grey and light stone wash is in, while the mildly distressed look is back too. Don't be afraid to fray at the knee!
Simple, Layered Jewels — Don't think statement jewelry, but make a statement with dainty layers! Choose some lovely layers when it comes to arm candy or neckwear.
Color-coded Lipstick — It's all about the color code in your twenties. This spring’s code is Barbie Pink and Berry Red mattes.
Tasseled Hair — Mermaid hair, don't care! Add some curls to your locks and texture it up with a sea salt spray to add extra mermaid.
Basic Tees — It's all about the basics this summer. Try a line of dye-washed basic tees to spice up your denim wardrobe.
Fresh Face — Around your 30s, your skin goes through a major change. Keeping a flawless complexion is the focus. Go with a foundation that corrects your skin while you wear it. It never hurts to choose products that are infused with anti-oxidants and vitamins.
Floral Tunic Blouse — The tunic blouse is very versatile as it can be worn with leggings or jeans. Free People made this button-neck, bell tunic popular and they truly hit the nail on the head with this body cut. It is flattering for all body types.
Statement Stones — Natural stones make lovely statement jewelry pieces. When sporting the floral, you do not want to go overboard with jewelry. Choose all-natural stones for a classic look that is sure to complement your florals.
Loose Curls — We are looking for a sophisticated, yet classy look. Opt for loose curls over tousled waves. Curls are very feminine and mature while also keeping on trend.
Ankle Cutout — Looking for ways to keep the appeal? Ankle peep shoes are all the rage. Keep it hot with heels that focus on the ankles instead of the toe cleavage.

Sexy Side ankle — Sexy is an attitude, not an age. This season it is all aboutthe side ankle. Choose a pair of booties or sandals that have a side-angle cut out. These look great with cropped pants and even the perfect spring dress.
Knotted Top — No need to throw away all of your flowy tops. Sport the side knot to add a little definition to your curves. You can tie it higher if you are small wasted, or tie it lower around the thigh area if you want to hide the stomach.
Au Naturale Make Up — Barely-there matte make up is gracing our runways the spring. It's all about the glow. Choose colors that are in the natural palette. For a pop of color, go with a pink matte lip gloss.
Tie-Waist Overcoat — On the cooler beach nights, grab a tie-waist cardigan or coat. Try tying the waist in the back to cinch your outerwear to show off your curves. Remember, no more baggy clothes, it's all about the curves.
