Spring Fashion Inspo x Whitley Gilbert

Spring is upon us and that means it’s time to renovate our closets. While I’m the kind of girl who’ll always love a good trend, there’s nothing like taking it back and revamping the fashion staples I’ve always loved. If you’re like me and ready to try something old and something new when it comes to your fashion sense this year, you’re in luck. I’m taking my fashion cues from none other than fashion icon, Whitley Gilbert. Fictional character or not, the girl had style. If you didn’t know, now you know.

I’ll be honest, I’m the girl who shies away from prints in the winter. I keep my outfits dark and monochrome. But, the spring is the perfect time to bust out your brightest, boldest prints. If you’re new to rocking prints, I always suggest you start off with the pants. There’s nothing quite like a printed pant with a simple top. You see how Whitley slays this style!

Whitley was well ahead of her time when it came to fashion. I mean, she was rocking the chic off the shoulder trend that everyone is wearing this season, twenty years ago. And this off the should dress with scallop details in spring pink? Yes, please! This is the perfect, easy outfit for mimosas and french toast on a spring Sunday. I’ll take it in powder blue too. Thanks.

As women, we kind of have a general understanding that we have a love/hate relationships with jumpsuits. They’re super cute to wear but a pain when you’re at that party and you have to use the restroom. Awkward! Still, you always need a cute jumpsuit on call for those last minute functions where you need to find something to wear and quick. One that has a sexy cut like this one is perfect to add a little spice to the otherwise plain appearance.
