Want the perfect easy spring look? Try a patchwork off the shoulder dress!
Anyone who loves and follows fashion, knows its a constant struggle for those on a limited budget. Trends are constantly changing, especially in the age of the internet, where new micro-trends crop up every few days. Its hard enough for a girl to stay on top of, forget actually affording to try everything we wish to try in the world of fashion.
In steps the rentals. Renting, well, pretty much anything, is not a new concept in our society. We rent apartments, cars, even appliances. Bag Borrow or Steal came into the market a number of years ago and is still going strong. Why not up the game and rent a wardrobe?
The idea of renting, is that you are allowed to develop a strong wardrobe of basic pieces, and then rent the quirky trends, or that special occasion dress, for only a fraction of the buying price. After you wear it, you simply return it. It doesn’t tale up space in your closet, and you don’t have to make a trip to the dry cleaners.

While I have not tried and of these yet, lets me honest…its in my very near future!
For a fresh look this spring, keep the classic white shirt in your closet and wear a reworked shirt. Try Feminine ruffles for a new trendy twist.
Counteract the femininity of the shirt with a wide denim leg trouser, that makes this look modern and fresh.
Normally, there is for though to these posts. Some outfit S wears and want to share with world. Today, I had that outfit ready, and then decided to be more spontaneous with that post. After all, the clothes in my closet will still be there next week. Today, I’m writing this post while on a plane, flying across the country to San Fransisco for a work conference. While traveling in general alludes to luxury and style, sitting cramped in an airplane seat does not. So exactly how can you dress to make the journey manageable, while still feeling like you could be featured on one of those airport style blog post that crop up everywhere.
If you have ever read a travel post on StylishTwo before, you know that we do not think that travel is any reason to leave the house disheveled, and till in last nights legging or yoga pants. Yes, they are comfortable. Yes, they are easy. Yes, I wear them often. They are not stylish though. They are made for exercise, a night in on the couch with a glass of wine and your favorite movie, or a lazy morning with a lingering cup of coffee. If you aren’t on the way to yoga class though, leave the yoga pants at home.
So what my answer after banishing what is considered the go to comfort clothing by many women? A jersey maxi dress.
This stretchy comfortable fabric will mold to your body, making you look (and feel) anything but frumpy without having to sacrifice your comfort. After all, you even get to forgo the waistband. It long length keeps your leg covered, and give you somewhere to tuck your leg up into if you manage a little space for a mid flight nap.
This grey maxi has been a long favorite of mine. I like it ankle length cut, and it minimal fabric, so I don’t feel like I have to control it while I am running across the airport to make a connecting flight. It’s short sleeves make it more appropriate for flying, where it normally chilly, and the neutral color make it easy to wear.
Throw a cardigan over it to give you a an extra layer, and opt for flat to make airport navigation easier. Ruffle are big this spring , so I chose this ruffled cardigan, and paired it with a pair of pointed toe lace up flats, another big trend!
Easy, comfortable, and you still look good!
I am in love with the trends this spring. Mini skirts. Stripes. Sequins. Best way to wear it in my book? All in one!
While I am all for a trip to your favorite store for a shopaholic adventure (as long as it is in your budget), there are a few dresses that should be in every woman’s closet.
Little Black Dress
If you only have one dress, this is the dress. Dress it up, dress it down, it somehow always fits the occasion.
Throw it over a bikini in the summer, or with cowboy boots for a music festival.
That dress you can wear to a wedding, or an office party.
Little White Dress
This little dress is an unsung hero of the dress department. Not quite as intimidating as the LBD, and a much better choice when you have a fresh from vacation tan to show off. Wondering how to wear this dress? Check out this post!
Girls Night Out Dress
That dress that is a little bit more than your work party dress. Wild colors, or fun patterns. This fun, flirty dress is all about you enjoying yourself!
While there is pretty much nothing minimalist about my closet, I do believe in basics that are a stable in every closet. This is my list of the shirts that should be in every woman’s closet!

So, we have all seen the boudoir trend. How is it that a gorgeous taller-than-my-boyfrined model can make it look sleek, and elegant, anyway? Its an amazing look, but also hard to balance and not look like you just rolled out of bed. Here is one take on this trend from us to help ease you into this fashion trend!
A pinstriped satin sleep shirt is classic night wear. While its currently street worthy paired with its matching bottoms, if that look is a little two much for you, try pairing it with a cuffed pair of white straight leg jeans. They look fresh and clean, and give contrast to the I-woke-up-like-this top. Pair it with another huge trend for the year–mules, and leave the heels at home, and keep your hair loose, wild and way. Think less sultry, and more I always look this good.

Pleats started to step into the spot light last fall, and they continue to make their way into the spring. Leave the wide car wash pleats behind, and choose a more narrow pleat in a lighter fabric for spring.
