Tie-Dye Cutoff Shorts


This summer, we’ll be rocking cutoff shorts once again.  But this time around, instead of choosing a standard denim wash, we’ll be looking for something with a little more personality.  The tie-dye pattern gives these cutoff shorts that spark - and they look fantastic with the army of bright shirts we’re going to be sporting this summer.  Want another option?  Topshop has a similar pair of tie-dye shorts for $64.

$48  at Need Supply.

Bold Floral Tunic Dress


Get the look of spring’s bold florals with this flowy tunic dress.  What we love about it is the bold colors and the hyper-realist print…reminiscent of the work of British designer Mary Katrantzou.  Extra bonus?  At this price, it’s not just easy to wear - it’s also easy on the wallet.

$79.90  at Zara.

Fade to Black Ombre Tank


There’s something so graceful about ombre prints.  These watercolor-esque prints feel serene and sophisticated - and we just can’t get enough.  We love both the ombre print - and the friendly price - on this stunning tank.  Snap it up - at this price, these tops won’t last for long.

$28  at Need Supply.

Diamond Block Necklace


We can’t get enough of the 1920s - the drop waist dresses, the sequins and beading, and of course, the jewelry.  Get your Art Deco era jewelry fix with this beautifully crafted necklace featuring five diamond shaped pendants on a string of antiqued chains.  Pendants measure 2" in length, with a necklace length of 21-24".

$35  at Need Supply.

Scarf Print Blouse


News flash: scarf prints are no longer just for scarves.  We’re loving this luxurious print on blouses, skirts, and dresses for spring. 

Perfect for sprucing up a work look, this scarf print blouse is seriously stylish without feeling too precious.  If you want to be sure to turn heads, wear this black and white beauty with a printed skirt in the same color scheme.  For a look that’s more accessible, you can pair this scarf print blouse with a jet black pencil skirt or pair of trousers.

$59.90  at Zara.

Omiru’s 16-Piece April 2012 Capsule Wardrobe

Omiru's 16-Piece April 2012 Capsule Wardrobe
Want to take a closer look at the capsule wardrobe?  Here’s more information about it.

Spring has officially sprung, and this April, we’re recharging our wardrobes with print & pattern and daring new silhouettes.  From the more conventional dots and stripes to bohemian tie-dye and fantastic florals, our April capsule wardrobe is brimming with eye-catching patterns.  But print and pattern isn’t all that’s new - we’ve added a few key silhouettes, from a classic pajama top to a bodysuit to a pair of joggers.

Today, we’ll outline the 16 key pieces you’ll want this month to keep your wardrobe on point.  And throughout April, we’ll show you how to mix and match these pieces, along with standard basics that everyone has in their closet, into key looks that you can recreate with your own wardrobe.  From left to right, top to bottom, here are the 16 pieces you’ll want to have in your closet this month.

The Pajama Top
Silk Pyjama Style Shirt | $96 at Topshop
Fashion Flash - Pajamas aren’t just for the bedroom anymore.

The Floral Biker Jacket
Mary Katrantzou Printed Silk Faille Biker Jacket | $3,430 at Net-a-Porter
Love the drama of this piece - but not so much the price.  Fast fashion chains like Zara, H&M, Topshop, and Forever 21 may have more affordable versions. 

The Moto Jacket
R13 Leather Moto Jacket | $1,395 at La Garconne
Biker jackets are investment pieces - and while the price is still out of reach, we love the zip detail and the buttery leather on this jacket.  Look for these details in more affordable jackets.

The Bright Cardigan
Jackie Cardigan | $62 at J Crew
Say hello to Spring with a pop of yellow.

The Polka Dot Top
Bon Bon Blouse by Tsumori Chisato | $498 at La Garconne
The draped collar and gathered drawstring add to the femininity of this polka dot blouse.

The Colorblocked Top

Proenza Schouler Blocked Knit Top | $625 at La Garconne
Geometric colorblocking gives this modern knit top a vintage appeal.

The Striped Top
Heart Print Striped Cotton Top | $135 at Net-a-Porter
A heart print makes for a playful take on the classic striped tee.

The Sequinned Top

Metallic Sequinned Tank | $24.50 at Delias
Get your shine on with this sequinned racerback tank.

The Paneled Bodysuit
Petite Bra Back Bodysuit | $40 at Topshop
What we love about this bodysuit is the mesh cutout side panels.

The Printed Pencil Skirt
Dolce & Gabbana Eggplant Print Stretch Crepe Skirt | $815 at Net-a-Porter
Bold and beautiful, this skirt was the standout piece from Dolce & Gabbana’s SS12 collection.  We love the charm of the allover eggplant print.

The Leather Shorts
3.1 Phillip Lim Drawstring Leather Shorts | $795 at La Garconne
If you’re going to wear leather shorts, try them in a city short style in lieu of short shorts. 

The Jogger Pants
Petite Woven Joggers | $64 at Topshop
Jogging pants are a fresh foil for a stuffy button-down top.

The Polka Dot Mini
Polka Dot Skirt | $34.50 at Delias
Fun, flirty, and completely on target for spring.

The Tie Dye Shorts
MOTO Tie Dye Hotpants | $64 at Topshop
Have a little fun with hot pants in an eye-catching tie-dye print.

The Spring Green Shorts

The Navy Chiffon Skirt

Layers of crinkled chiffon give this skirt depth and texture.

We’re out on vacation this week - but we’ll be back on Monday, April 9 with the first of our capsule wardrobe looks.
