Need an excuse to shop? Grab your wallet and hit the mall for a new Mother's Day outfit. From blocks of bold color to super-feminine sorbets, you're sure to find a spring trend that suits your style.
Color blocks — they're not just for kids anymore
This spring, several designers are color-blocking vibrant colors on everything from skirts to dresses... even bathing suits. Want to splurge? Eliza J's silk crepe dress (Nordstrom, $178) makes a chic statement. Or, go casual with this flattering A-line sundress from Tommy Hilfiger (Macy's, $99).
Shades of sorbet
If you prefer a soft and feminine look, you're in luck. Mint, lilac, guava and tangerine are among some of the yummy colors that are prominent this spring. This BCBGeneration dress (Macy's, $108) has a scoop neck and looks put-together, but effortless. If you prefer your handbags in sugary-sweet colors, try this Michael Kors Saffiano bag (Nordstrom, $168).
Floral prints are back in a big way. From shoes to handbags and dresses, flowers ruled the runways this spring. This Maggy London floral jersey wrap dress (Nordstrom, $158) is bright, bold and super comfortable. If you prefer a solid color up top, dress up your look with floral-printed pumps, like these Lafera platform pumps from Aldo (Nordstrom, $90).
Let it roll off your shoulder
If you're up for showing a little skin, single-shoulder looks are hot this spring. Bring your sass back this Mother's Day with a dress that features asymmetric draping and an off-the-shoulder look. This Jessica Simpson blouson shoulder dress (Nordstrom, $98) is fun, flirty and super cheerful. Or, pair two spring trends (one-shoulder and pleats) with this BCBGeneration dress (Macy's, $138).
If you're planning on getting dolled-up this Mother's Day, don't forget to accent your new spring looks with makeup to match! Pair your sorbet styles with apricot and pink cheeks, soft eye shadow and a glossy lip. Match your bold looks with dramatic eyes, or paint your pucker with a range of reds.
