Fashion is a revolving door that never stops turning. It’s in… It’s out… It’s on celebrities, and then it’s at your local charity shop. Every season there are new trends, new colors, and new must-haves. If you don’t stay on top of things, you run the risk of being labeled “so last season.” However, there are a few items that have mounted themselves into our Wardrobe Wall of Fame and are clearly not going anywhere anytime soon. Here’s a list of staple items that you can bet safely on buying this season and not worry about looking back on with a regretfully empty wallet.
Lace has always held a special place in our hearts, but we fell in love with Rodarte’s romantic Edwardian Spring look- models adorned in lace, lace and more lace!

A Western contribution to fashion, the fringe adds an aspect of Boho Chic to any outfit. Throw on your cross-body fringe bag by day and your thin fringe crop top by night. This flexible fashion statement will have you looking and feeling fabulous around the clock. Which brings me to the next far-out staple item…

The Crop Top
Although not recommended for everyone, this item is a true staple in any wardrobe. Show some skin and radiate confidence in a cool crop top this Spring. And if you’re not feeling so hot, simply pair it with high wasted trousers and hide away that troublesome torso.
The Babydoll Dress
Victorian-esque babydoll dresses continued to grace McQueen’s runway as the fashion house moves further away from ironclad corsets and obscure headdresses and closer to cascading ruffles and tousled hair.

The Skinny Trousers
I still remember when my brother was stealing the skinny jeans from my wardrobe because it was suddenly cool for everyone to wear skinnies. Needless to say, not much has changed and I don’t see the fashion forecast shooing these leg-lusting staples away anytime soon.
Chunky Heel Booties
It’s all things retro in the shoe department this season. What better way to start jazzing up your shoe collection than with the versatile chunky boot heel? Wear them with pants or with a dress, with high socks or without, to work or to Paceville… hell you could even go out in your bikini with a retro pair of booties and still look incredible.
Add some spice to your step with lace up sandals this season. Heel or no heel, it’s the perfect shoe to turn your everyday casual step into a sexy stride. Chances are you’ve already bought a pair or two in the years past, but this trend is still on the rise so rest assured this shoe won’t let you down. If you’re ready for something new, grab yourself a pair of retro lace-up ballet flats and dance into the Spring spotlight.
Nobody does the neckerchief better than Manrepeller but that doesn’t mean you can’t try. There are countless ways you can tie a classic silk scarf around your neck. Pick up a few this Spring and have at it!
