As spring begins to peek around the corner, we’re partnering with our favorite style bloggers to show us how they wear the season’s hottest trends. From fashion tips to makeup trends to home décor, we’re excited to see how these fashionistas gear up for a new year of style.
This week, we’re welcoming Lauren from Lake Shore Lady to share how to wear a variety of hemlines and pairs of shoes as she showcases her five favorite looks for spring.
Though it might not quite feel like it yet, spring and summer are definitely on their way. As we ease into warmer temps, it’s so fun to play around with different denim hemlines… and maybe even expose our ankles again – gasp! But the absolute best part of spring denim trends is obviously pairing them with cute shoes. Right? Right.
Luckily, Meijer is always there to remind us that you don’t need to spend a crazy amount of money to be fabulously stylish. Yes, it IS possible to have fun with fashion on a budget, and these five looks are total proof. Let’s take a look:
Double Cuffed Jeans + Keds
Who doesn’t like a good pair of Keds?! There’s a reason they’ve been around for so long – they’re classics! Plus, they’re crazy comfortable and perfect for long walks, running errands all day, or even sightseeing. I don’t usually wear sneakers with anything but workout gear, but will always make an exception for these cuties. The key to styling? Go with a cuffed jean to show off the shoe. No boot cut jeans allowed!
Raw Hem Jeans + Mules
This look is so 90s and I love it! The light wash, the frayed hems and, of course, the mules. The only thing missing is a choker! I love that mules and a thicker, block heel are making a comeback. It’s such a sleek yet comfortable trend… and the best way to test it out is with a super affordable pair like these. I love to style them with a trendy raw hem in my jeans, as the messy fray is a perfect counterpoint to the structured mule.
Cropped Jeans + Ballet Flats
Ballet flats can sometimes seem a little blah – but add a crisscross design and I’m on board! Make sure you pair these with a cropped pair of jeans so you can show off that ankle strap. I wore a casual long sleeve tee for this look, but you could totally swap it out for a flirty blouse for a night on the town.
Gaucho Pants + Beachy Sandals
Culottes, palazzo pants, gauchos – whatever you want to call them, they’re back! The soft, flowy style is beach-inspired and has got me dreaming of more days in the sun. Find a pair to cinch at your waist, then tie your tee at the same spot (or wear a crop top!) and finish the look with a fun pair of sunnies and bright, beachy sandals.
Distressed Jeans + Block Heel Sandals
I firmly believe that every girl needs a pair of nude sandals – bonus points if they also have a low, walk-able heel! I’m so glad I found this new block heel pair at Meijer to replace my last go-to sandals (which had seen its fair share of miles). Seriously though, you’ll wear them all the time! They go with anything, especially these distressed jeans and pretty cold shoulder top. Just make sure to cuff your hem to show off that trendy, modern block heel!
