Let's take a peak at five of my favorite picks from CJ Banks' spring collection!
I absolutely *love* this dress. It's super-cute and the stripe of fuschia adds just that extra pop of fun! This dress can easily be worn to work, to church, or even a spring wedding!
*NeNe voice* I liiiiive for a capri pant, honey! No really, I do. Even though shorts are back in a major way and even culottes are also having a moment, if you are a thick-thighed lady like myself, capris are your best friend during the summer - they cover up your "wobbly bits" but also give your legs a chance to get a little air. NOTE: One thing to be careful with when it comes to capris - be sure that the length does NOT hit you at the widest part of your calf...otherwise, you're going to look shorter and wider. If that's the look you're going for...well, nevermind. But as for me, I'm always trying to slenderize as much as possible. So capris that taper-in like these do are the way go!
How many things are great about this shirt? First off, it's more of a tunic, so it gives coverage over your tummy, hips, and backside. Then it's animal print - leopard at that. You all know that I loooove leopard print! It's practically a neutral in my book. Finally, the shirt is WRINKLE-RESISTANT. Hello?!! Can you get any better than that? STYLE TIP: To eliminate any bulk around the midsection, add a belt! Whether skinny or wide, a belt will help break up your torso and define your waist, ensuring you look as long and lean as possible. Also, don't be afraid to go for a more daring color - personally I think a burnt orange belt would look amazing with this top as opposed to the more typical black or brown.
White jackets are fantastic fashion picks for the warm weather months. This denim-like twill version allows you to rock the look with a more outfit. This would be great for pairing over a simple t-shirt or even a sleeveless maxi.
