One of our favorite trending colors right now is tangerine. It’s bold, bright, and beautiful – and best of all, flatters many skin tones. It’s a quick way to add a healthy glow to your wardrobe, whether you’re sporting a gorgeous pleated skirt or just some fun accessories. From dip-dyed cotton shorts to a gorgeous printed dress, we love how brands and designers have incorporated this fab color into their line up. And best of all, it’s a color with staying power: pair that cotton sweater with skinny jeans and ankle booties come fall for a cool weather wardrobe win. How do you dream in tangerine?
The camo trend is another menswear-inspired look that has made its way into women’s wear – and we have to admit we’re fans. There are so many fun ways to wear this trend, from subtle (a camo-inspired watch, for example) to bold (go big or go home with a hip-length camo jacket).
We love that it walks the line between sexy and sporty, and with spring here, that’s just what we need. Pair these looks with a neutral heel for added oomph, or slip on some cute sneakers with a camo print for a sportier feel. There are so many fun ways to work this trend; we’re just thankful we’ve got all spring to play with it!
Style Tip: For a date-night look, pair this dress with a cotton cardigan and nude pumps.
SXSW ended last week, but the music festival season is just getting started. We love the music festival scene because it’s a creative environment that inspires people to try out fashion-forward looks and experiment with their personal style. Regardless of your style, you can’t go wrong with simple, fuss-free outfits that are made from lightweight and breathable cotton. We’ve rounded up a handful of festival-worthy cotton items to help you achieve that effortlessly cool, boho look.
Every girl needs a great pair (or more!) of jeans. Jeans made of cotton are “breathable” because the fiber can absorb and release moisture quickly. Cotton rich jeans are also easy to care for and can last for years. Here are a few simple do’s and don’ts of how to care for your favorite denim:
- Check the labels on the jeans you are planning to purchase to make sure they are indeed made from cotton rich material
- Read the care instructions on the inside tag of the jeans
- Turn them inside out before washing
- Wash in cold water on ‘delicate’ cycle
- Dry flat or hang dry upside down
- If you have to dry them in the dryer, do it on the lowest heat setting
- Wash in hot water
- Dry them in the dryer
- Wash them after every wear
How do you care for your denim?
Just because you are pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the fun spring trends as well! Many trends from the catwalks can be translated into maternity fashions, from stripes to colored denim. There are so many chic looks to choose from.
To ensure that your outfits will not only make you look good, but will also make you feel great, check the labels on the clothes you’re planning to purchase. When you’re going by just the touch it can be hard to differentiate between cotton and some synthetic materials.
All of our finds are made from cotton, which means they are comfortable and easy to care for, so you can enjoy your pregnancy in style!
