Pretty Fix: The February 2017 List

I’m not sure about your neck of the woods, but February’s weather in north Texas can definitely be unpredictable.  One day we’re in boots and sweaters, the next it’s t-shirts and sandals!  It’s hard to have an “in-between” wardrobe that can run the gamut of daily temperatures.

This month’s Pretty Fix is perfect for this time of the year.  It features a lightweight rib knit sweater that’s not too hot and some preppy touches like suede loafers and a tassel tote.  Sometimes I love an outfit so much when I’m putting together a fix, that I order all of the pieces immediately.  This is one of those special outfits!

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!

This month’s fix has three of my favorite trends for spring – frayed hems, a skinny scarf and menswear inspired loafers that convert into mules.

Here’s your February 2017 Pretty Fix.

Pretty Fix – February 2017

1. Navy Sweater

Navy has quickly become one of my new favorite neutrals.  This rib knit is lightweight enough for warmer days but is also great for layering.  Try it with a basic white t-shirt under it. If you’re not into navy, use your printed scarf as inspiration and choose a different color. Here are some other options:  1/2/3

2. Skinny Scarf

Skinny scarves are all the rage for spring.  I love this one because it can be worn as a hair band, neck scarf or tied to the handle of your handbag. Additional options:  1/2/3

3. Bright Tote

Ah, nothing says spring is coming like a happy, yellow tote.  The tassel detail on this yellow tote adds a preppy touch.  If yellow isn’t your thing, choose another fun color like poppy red, kelly green or bright pink. Here are some shopping options:  1/2/3

4. Frayed Hem Jeans

If you don’t have a pair of frayed hem jeans yet, you’ll definitely want to add some to your spring wardrobe.  I love the distressing on this pair.  Tip:  also search “released hem” to find this trend. Here are some other options:  1/2/3

5. Suede Loafers

I’m swooning over these premium suede loafers at an awesome price!  They come with a “soft heel” so you can also wear them as a slip on, as pictured below. Even though the price is great on the pair featured, don’t be afraid to invest a little more. They’re a classic that will never go out of style! Additional options:  1/2/3
