Five steps to a stylish spring

When the weather gets warmer I just want to go shopping. I'm more than ready to abandon my heavy boots and sweaters and live in dresses and sandals. But which ones? Lucky magazine style contributor Lori Bergamotto came by to give us the answers and highlight the hot makeup, accessory and hair trends we should follow for a stylish spring.

The Hot Silhouette

A tight, curve-hugging wiggle dress with a knee-length hemline. They're not constricting and they come in a great range of colors and prints.

The Hot Hair Color Trend

The ombre look-darker at the roots and lighter on the ends- which celebs like Drew Barrymore, Rachel Bilson, and Rhea Durham have perfected. The great thing about this trend is the accessibility. You can get really affordable hair color kits at the drug store!

The Hot Makeup Trend

Coral lips or cheeks or both. Go for a sheer lip gloss or a matte lipstick with more intense pigment to amp up the drama.

The Hot Shoes

The embellished two-strap flat sandal. These are so comfortable and versatile and look great with casual shorts or flirty skirts.

The Hot Handbag

A short-strap square purse. The structured shape gives a casual outfit some sophistication and adds an edge to a dressier look. The modest size forces you to edit your must-haves-not a bad thing.
