Fur vest, sunglasses, floppy hat
Bring on the Texas sunshine. Face blue skies in round sunglasses this spring. You can easily go big for an effortless “straight off the runway” look, or opt for a smaller frame to maximize hippie appeal.
Texas weather could not be more unpredictable. Fight off those random chilly days in faux fur. A fur vest like this can easily transform you into ‘70s rockstar.
Is there a cuter way to find shade than under a larger-than-life floppy hat? This piece has survived over time, and is worth the splurge.
Printed kimono, white fringed top, floppy hat
Kimono? More like kimoYES! A printed kimono can make a simple look pop. Don’t shy away from crazy prints, but be careful when mixing loud patterns or you might have too much going on.
Whether you decide to rock it with a new hairstyle or a new bag, there’s no denying that fringe made an impression this season. A top is a simple and stylish way to pull this trend off without showing too much skin.
Printed jumpsuit and floppy hat
Hop into a funky printed jumpsuit. Tame this wild look with simple jewelry and makeup, and you’ll be sure to turn heads wherever you go.
Printed pants and black fringe top
Print’s not dead. A colorfully printed wide-flare pant combines two seasonal trends into one. This wider pant is perfect for lounging around your apartment or while strutting down South Congress. Paired with a solid fringed top makes this outfit look effortlessly groovy.
Black kimono and white fringe top
Getting dizzy from all the patterns? Take a classic spin on the ‘70s with a simple black kimono. A solid color can be easier to incorporate into the rest of your spring wardrobe. Adding a splash of color with a classic red lip or with colorful jewelry will make this ensemble effortlessly cool.
