Pretty Fix: The April List

Are you sick of striped shirts yet?  I hope not because I’ve got another look for you with one today – and striped tops with details like bell sleeves and peplum hems have turned out to be one of the must have trends for spring 2017.

Being on trend truly doesn’t get any easier than this!  Just upgrade your striped shirt collection.

This month’s Pretty Fix styles your newly updated striped top with a spring classic you probably already have in your closet – white jeans.  Add in some colorful, trendy accessories – like a floral neck scarf and some tassel earrings – then finish it off with a functional cross body bag and some fun yellow block heeled sandals.

If you’re new around here, the Pretty Fix is a monthly feature with five budget-friendly recommendations for staying on trend.  The idea for it was born out of frustration some of you have had with box styling services. The Pretty Fix allows you to shop for the pieces at your favorite stores so it’s budget and quality conscious.  Of course, I always recommend that you shop your closet first!

Here’s your April 2017 Pretty Fix.


Pretty Fix – April 2017

1. Beaded Tassel Earrings

This fun pair of beaded tassel earrings from the Sugarfix by Baublebar line are so on trend and so affordable at only $12.99! They come in six fun color combos.  Here are some other options:  1/2/3

2. Striped Bell Sleeve Top

Instantly update your t-shirt collection for spring by adding bell sleeves to your classic striped top.  Shopping options:  1/2/3/4

3. Floral Square Scarf

One of the easiest trends to try this spring is the silk floral neck scarf.   There’s nothing springier than combining stripes with florals.  Wear it on your neck, around your wrist or tie it to your purse handle.  Support a great cause by shopping the GYPO Collection or check out these other shopping options:  1/2/3

4. Neutral Cross Body Bag

Why not lighten up your load for spring with an easy to carry cross body bag! Light gray goes with everything. Here are some options:  1/2/3

5. Yellow Block Heeled Sandals

If you’ve sworn off heels because they’re uncomfortable then you really need to give block heeled sandals a try! This sunny yellow pair adds a punch of color to just about any outfit.  Additional options:  1/2/3  Tip:  Sub flat yellow sandals for a more casual version of this outfit!

And don’t forget the white jeans!  These are a closet staple but just in case you don’t have a pair yet, here are some of my favorite white jeans:  1/2/3
