Now that it is spring time here are 5 essentials for this spring:
11.)    Instead of wearing a plain black, gray and navy dress, why not try wearing a floral print sheath dress. For the office wear a knee length sheath dress but you may go a little bit shorter for a night out if you prefer.

22.)    Give your peep toe pumps a break and bring out your strappy ankle sandals. Strappy ankle sandals give your lower body a personality, make sure that your toes are well manicured and polished.

33.)    Bring out some lace detail, this is very tricky to pull off without looking tacky or like you’re in your underwear. Pick and outfit that has lace sleeves or laced back. This adds a wonderful polish feel to your outfit.
.)4.)    Striped shirts are all over the run way this season, pair strips with a solid color to focus on the statement piece which is your shirt. To create a professional yet trendy look pair it with a blazer.
55.)    Add a pop of spring with boldly-colored accessories. Whether it’s cobalt blue studs, a yellow cuff, or a pink ring, jewelry is the perfect way to showcase your bright personality without making it the center of your wardrobe. If wearing a bold statement piece keep the rest of the outfit simple to make sure the outfit looks elegant and not overly busy.

Green: Darker greens can connote power, class and strength. Brighter shades of greens tell people you're sporty, more casual and often cheerful.

PINK: Pink is not just for women anymore. Men who wear pale pink or salmon accents which tell the world they're confident, daring and independent enough to wear a color usually considered a woman’s color. Women can use it to soften a strong, dark-colored suit which makes them look more approachable. Bright, bubblegum pink or fuchsia from head to toe is just plain annoying and hurts people's eyes.
PURPLE: Dark purple says elegance, authority, class and a regal demeanor. Men can get away with a deep burgundy jacket to give a refined yet highly stylish impression. Women can appear strong, powerful and confident in a deep purple jacket, suit or blouse. A deep purple dressy T-shirt or button down in a very casual work environment says "I'm confident and efficient, yet not stuffy." 
YELLOW: Yellow tells people you're casual, playful, and not afraid to take risks. Seeing yellow can cheer people up, so you're perceived as having a sunny personality just for wearing it. But be careful with mustard, which can make people of almost all complexions look otherwise unhealthy.

 BROWN:You have to be careful with brown. It is considered the new black, but ensure your brown clothes are fitted properly or else it can make you look like a potato. When your brown clothing has the right cut it can accompany many different colors. It's a great substitute for black without the look of being in mourning.  

BLACK: Immediately says elegance, sophistication, intelligence and strength. Black can be overwhelming if you’re in black from head to toe which could make you look self absorbed.

RED:  Red is powerful and strong. It shows you're not afraid to stand out, and it gets attention, which can be used to make a bold statement. Use red when wearing as a power suit and break the red with a black camisole under the jacket.
