bring on the frill (aka lovely lace)

Shoulder frill. How undervalued is shoulder frill, you guys? I mean, the shoulder pad is one thing that I don’t really miss…but shoulder frill? You just don’t see it enough, if you ask me. Lace, houndstooth, giant statement necklace, open toed mules, and shoulder frill?! It’s like a fashion party explosion gone girly happy. Sigh.

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) DSW is one of the few discount shops that really does carry shoes that are on trend and sells them at a discount up front, instead of having to wait a season or two for them to be discounted. When I went on the search for open toed mules/shoe-booties, I found approximately 20-30 pairs there! A few of them were already on clearance, as opposed to just their regular discounted price.  As always, you know what I’m going to say, right? Sign up for the emails and their club! 

2) I bought these pants over winter, so I was, of course, super excited to try and style them for spring and summer. Despite being a dark print, they really lightened up with a light colored top and open toed shoes. I kept the top unbelted to add more of a light/breezy feeling.  All in all, it was really easy to transition these “winter” pants. I think they would also look great with a denim top and maybe a yellow cardigan. Try summerizing your “winter” print pants! 

Anyone else have winter pants styling tips for spring and summer? Happy Monday, readers! Hope everyone had a good start to the week!

    • Funny you should ask! I was concerned about the area where they open by the toes and the rubbing there ; sure enough, first time I wore them, they rubbed my big toes. But, after the first time, they didn’t bother me at all again!

  1. Love this look from head to toe!
    You know you had me at open toed mules! ❤️ I’m a fan of the shoulder frill, I have to say there’s just something so soft and feminine about it. I love to wear it with dark denim 😃
