From: Stripes/ Patterns /Fine Prints /
To: Paisleys, florals and Pokka dots

It seems like much, but this springs fashion trend is a plethora of different prints, patterns and a sense of the 60’s and 70’s skipping the 80’s & meeting the 90’s. 

Old navy.com has a wide selection and caters to petites. Keep in mind that petite sizes don’t run smaller just shorter, and it fits better if your 5’4 or shorter.

Denim

A denim jacket is a must in any ladies wardrobe. It can be used year round in many places and will never go out of style. A jean jacket can also quickly dress down an outfit, if your going out after work it is a quick adjustment to your wardrobe.

Overalls are creeping back into style, according to the trend report on Elle.com. Although I am not a personal fan of how overalls fit, I do admit that they look quite stylish in this report and I may find myself picking up a pair and wearing them throughout the spring & summer.

Pleated skirts are back from the 70’s and you don’t have to go into your moms closet or shop at a high end boutique for one.

Wear either with a long sleeve blouse or cotton blend cardigan. Remember to accessorize with statement earings.

Jcpenny.com carries pleated skirts from x-small to x-large, starting at $18. Here is a link to a knife pleated skirt.
