To say we’re excited to bring you our X Collection is an understatement. We’ve been anticipating a designer only collection for some time now, and we’re stoked to be able to offer you carefully curated pieces from your favorite high-end brands.

It’s fun to see how some of our most-loved fashion bloggers are pairing their X Collection pieces with other items in their wardrobe. They’ve taught us a lesson or two in styling for Spring so we’d like to pass on their outfit inspiration to you!

Add a Pop of Color

TfDiaries’ Megan Zietz is known for making runway trends work for everyday wear. Taking notes from Spring RTW fashion shows, she likes to pair bright hues with harder touches like a leather jacket as seen here. If you’re looking for an easy way to transition your winter wardrobe to Spring, try a bright dress or bold stripes and pair them with a moto jacket. Once Summer rays hit the streets, you can ditch the jacket and pair the dress with strappy sandals for a more laid back look.

Keep Your Winter Whites

Neutrals and pastels are on-trend this Spring, so keep any white or beige sweaters from your winter wardrobe and pair them with an A-line skirt. Mixing textures is always a great way to give neutral tones more oomf and you can add a belt to accentuate the waistline as Oh So Glam’s Christina DeFilippo does here.

Mix It Up

Pattern mixing is a delicate art, and Emily Tozer of The Glam Files has clearly mastered it! While it can be a scary trend to try, there are some foolproof ways to mix the right pieces. For example, you can always start small. Try incorporating a patterned bag or scarf into some of your outfits. And don’t forget to keep colors aligned in the pieces you’re mixing — if you want to wear two multicolor prints, look for one color that’s in both.
