Whatcha, whatcha, whatcha want...

Someday, spring will come again. And when it does, we’ll all be cheering from the rooftops for clothes that show a little skin. In an effort to inject a little fun into spring dressing (and dreaming), here’s the upcoming season’s inspiration wish list done head to toe.

Headgear – Something creative on the head is a must. Try metallic headbands, Roman-inspired leaf vines, mini tiaras, animal ears…even funny hats, just make it different and wear with bedhead.

Bronze Harlow Leaf - $60

Face – Clean, healthy and slightly tan. Makeup should only enhance what’s natural, not mask or shade.

Coat – A super soft and lightweight leather jacket will go over everything. Make sure it fits right in the waist. Take your pick of color from black, grey and almost beige.
Funktional - $417

Tops – White with embellishments – not just your basic white shirt, the cuffs are rolled, sleeves are puffy or there is some sort of architectural cut-out.
Roberto Cavalli - $1275

Wrists – Simple leather or teeny gold bracelets layered with your watch.
Hayden Harnett - $78

Denim – Super huge this spring, lightweight denim is all over the place. My wish list item, a pair of baggy, skirt-like super short chambrays – I’m also wishing for the long, tan legs to go with this look.
Thakoon - $580

Square pants – Wear the new baggy, short pants with platforms – even maybe with pleated fronts if you’re skinny.

Toes – White tennis shoes or dark brown leather flat sandals. That’s all you need for day. Use the shoes in your closet to pair with the rest.

Chloe - $525

J Crew Converse - $65
