Five Tips for a Seamless Transition Into Spring

Cold, blustery days are almost gone and warmer temperatures will soon be on their way. Here are five fashion tips to follow for an easy transition into spring:

1. Pretty Pastels: Glamour Magazine says pastels are one of the most “wearable trends” from the Spring 2014 runways. Add some color into your wardrobe with light and airy sweaters or bright colored denim that can easily transition you into spring.

2. Flower Power: Incorporate some floral prints like this ultra-feminine, Jessica Simpson floral blouse to complement key pieces of your wardrobe.

3. Change Up Your Layers: Instead of bulky sweaters and blazers, add a bright cardigan or a short-sleeved sweater to give your outfit a fresh look.

4. The Novel Jacket: Swap your winter coat for a lighter option.  Ditch heavier outerwear for a jacket with a sleek and edgy vibe; think faux-leather and Moto jackets.

5. The Finishing Touch: Nail polish is a fun and easy way to incorporate the trendiest spring colors into your wardrobe. Try one of our new Butter London nail lacquers in a variety of on-trend shades.

Trend Alert // The Statement Jacket

pea_spring14dix_133688-rt-flt-300Whether cold weather decides to linger or we’re headed for a warm up, jackets continue to be the perfect complement to any outfit. Spotted on the runways in silhouettes ranging from draped to fitted, the jacket is a trend with true staying power.

Olivia Capone Myers, Design Director for A Pea in the Pod, describes the broad assortment of styles: “Bikers, bombers, blazers, parkas, cropped or cascading, we have the biggest trend of the season covered. Worn over dresses for work or with jeans for play, the jacket’s versatility makes it a wardrobe must for moms-to-be.”

Seasonal Sweaters

With a keen eye still on layering, try a lightweight sweater in seasonal styles that will carry you through the transitional weather. From short sleeves to sleeveless, pretty patterns, breathable fabrics and flattering silhouettes replace the bulkiness of winter’s chunky toppers. Sleek, stylish and sophisticated, they are ready and waiting to frame and flatter your bump.
