Floor length skirts are a breezy, comfortable alternative to pants during a warm spring day. Hitting just at the tops of your feet is the perfect length, especially if you want to show off some adorable sandals! To make this look even more effortlessly cool, pair the skirt with a plain tee and knot it just at the waistline. So chic!

Rompers are always in style, but especially during the spring and summer months. They scream casual chic and go with everything from strappy heels, to wedges, to flat sandals. Pick a romper with a cute design or pattern for added edge, and pair it with an oversized tote like this one to balance the short hemline.

Palazzo pants are very trendy right now because they’re perfect for night and day wear! Pair them with a plain tee for a casual daytime look, or add a fitted crop top like this one and a pair of heels and you’ve got a perfect outfit for a night out! Make sure to keep your top fitted to balance the volume of the pants.

Do you have a ton of magazines lying around that have already been read but need to be recycled? Turn them into art! Nothing looks simpler, but more chic, than a homemade collage of beautiful clips from glossy magazines. Try a theme, like fashion inspiration, or just tape up what looks artsy to you. Only tape required!

Chalk Art

So, if you’re anything like me, your chalk art wouldn’t be quite as amazing as this… but that’s the beauty of chalk art! Chalk is extremely inexpensive and you can be as creative and messy as you want because it simply washes away with a spray of water. You can recreate your work over and over again!

Fun, colorful pants become work appropriate when paired with neutral, structured elements like this chic blazer and nude shoes. Keep the pants professional by tucking in your top and ensuring that they’re well tailored – hitting just at the ankle is the perfect length. Pushing up the sleeves adds a cool edge to an already trendy look.

Bring spring into your office with a full, floral skirt like this beauty. It’s simple, sweet, and perfect for work. Keep the colors neutral for a sleek look and to allow the pretty pattern of the skirt to be the star of the show. With a full skirt like this, knee-length or midi length is the most flattering.

I love the pattern of this top; alternating stripes add trendiness and edginess while staying neutral enough for a more conservative work environment. This would also work with wide-legged pants!

Spring has sprung here in California and that means time to show off those legs! One of the trendiest styles this spring and summer will be midi skirts, which hit between the knee and the ankle.

This is the epitome of fresh, spring style. The midi skirt has a floral pattern and is fitted, but loose enough to create an easy, breezy look. A crop top goes perfectly with this outfit, but a tucked-in shirt would look just as cute. A sleeveless shirt works best with this midi so the pattern and length don’t overwhelm the look. Add some strappy sandals or wedges and you’ve got the perfect spring outfit!
