Styling 101: Iridescent Shadows

As the winter chill gives way to the warmth of spring, we shed our thick layers in favor of sheer, light, flowy fabrics with a hint of shine. For this month’s Styling 101, we turned to our styling expert Amanda to shed some light on a beautiful spring trend were calling Iridescent Shadows, and to style 3 beautiful looks to go along with it.

Take it away, Amanda! :)

Iridescent Shadows is one of our favorite trends this month.  It’s centered around sheer styling and how to incorporate sheer pieces into your wardrobe.  What I love about this trend is you can be as bold or as safe as you want, whether you want to wear a sheer top with a black bra or really go for it and wear a sheer embellished dress!  This is also a great trend to try as we go into the festival season!!

In look one, I loved the idea of a monochromatic white look with a black bra underneath, mixing bold silver accessories and black sandals, a modern update for the Meadow bohemian girl!  If the all-white look is a bit much for you, try pairing a sheer ivory top with a black bra and black cut off shorts or jeans.

Look two is great for our cool Lou girl!  Really loving this new silhouette for spring, pairing our seamless crop tops back to boyfriend jeans.  And our New Romantics Baseball jacket is a great statement piece to throw on for the cooler spring days that give this simpler outfit a bit of edge!

Look 3 is for the girl who’s not afraid to take a risk!  This sheer dress is beautiful and has incredible detail.  I love the idea of pairing it with black undergarments/black swim and tall black gladiator sandals for a bold statement!  This is a great look to try if you plan on going to any festivals this year!!
