Elaine Yu - Simply Chic Styling


Who's ready to talk spring style trends? I am! To keep things simple, I'd like to share 3 trends that will be big next season.

I recently wrote a blog post for The Stir called "What to Wear for Moms' Night Out" where I feature 3 of spring's hot trends. You can see the full post here.

​Big this spring will be:

  • Culottes

  • Off the Shoulder Tops

  • Lace up Gladiator Sandal

Are you ready to dive in? Which one of these stylish pieces will you be wearing?

Culottes have been on my wish list for a few seasons but being petite at 5' 1" made me feel a bit uneasy about the style. With looking forward to spring and wanting to try something new, I think I'm finally ready to dive in and give it a try. The key for me is tailoring to be sure the fit is the right proportion for my body. I'll wear the culottes just like I'd wear a long skirt.

For the "What to Wear for Moms' Night Out" post, I created 2 outfits that incorporate all 3 of these hot looks - one splurge worthy option and a budget friendly version:

Splurge Worthy Outfit
