bykStyle | TrendWatch: 2016 Spring Must-Haves

Written by: Sol 

Hey Fabbies,

Although we didn’t have much of a winter in NC this year, we are still psyched to know that SPRING IS COMING! *insert fanfare*  Pollen and allergies aside {Which gets me EVERY year, by the way!}, Spring is one of our favorite times of year, as that’s the fashion ‘pre-game’ for summertime hauteness! In order to bring the season in proper like, there are a few things on our watch list that we are adding to our  Spring arsenal {and we suggest you do the same!}

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Wipeout Color Correcting Palette, $45.00


Let’s kick this trend watch off with a little color correcting, shall we? This palette by Tarte Cosmetics is a greatly anticipated item on our watch list. This puppy promises to ‘wipe out’ coloring imperfections in your skin, allowing for an even, toned natural look. It features five different colors: Orange, which counteracts darkness; Green, which neutralizes redness; Warmth, which sculpts, contours, and defines; Peach 1, which camouflages light to medium skin tones; Peach 2, which camouflages medium to deep skin tones; and Yellow, which highlights and brightens.  Adding this palette to your collection and purse is a sure fire way to keep your skin on fleek {Do the children even say this anymore?} for the Spring! 🙂  This palette will be available in Sephora stores on March 14th, but you can purchase online today – Yitidee!

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream, $30.00,

This next must-have is also a beauty goodie that can be purchased at your local Sephora. I LOOOOOOOOOVVVVVE the Origins brand, as a number of their products stay in rotation around my way! This eye cream is the bee’s knees because it de-puffs AND reduces dark circles!  As a woman who is quickly approaching 40, those words are like music to my ears! This product is said to work on all skin types, so if you are looking for a way to get your eye baggage and circulation under control, give this baby a try!

 Lane Bryant Off-Shoulder Chambray Top, $59.95


So listen – nothing makes our spirit smile like a chambray top. I mean, think about it – these shirts go with virtually anything! However, when you take that chambray top and deconstruct it to an off-the-shoulder, free flowing gem, our spirits breaks out in a full happy dance! Take this number from Lanie B’s… This top is perfect for spring, as I can see this rocking this with a flowy, maxi skirt or a great pair of linen trousers. You could even pair it with a great pair of denim pants or trousers for a trendy ‘denim x denim’ look! If this top is a bit steep for your budget, consider this similar style top here.

Graphic Tee by Chakayla J. Taylor, $13.50

Be Magical Not Basic - Women's T-Shirt

If you follow our looks at #bykstyle, you know that we LOVE a good graphic tee! What better time to kick off your tee game than in the Spring, especially one that brings light to a fellow #bloggerbae? This super cute tee is from Chakayla J. Taylor of StylishlyDecadent.Com! Chakayla, a fellow North Carolinian, is a blogger, mom, and branding coach, with a dope style to match! She has recently launched a line of graphic tees that embodies her message of girl boss empowerment.  Of course, you know we have a couple of these items in our arsenal and will be showing our looks VERY soon! Check out the rest of Chakayla’s tees here.

Suddenly Slim by Catalina Women’s Plus Size Retro Ruffled Swimming One-Piece Swimsuit, $34.64


A retro-inspired print swimsuit that slims the silhouette, has ‘give’ and is super cute! Need we say more?!

Spring/Summer Playlist (Pictured – Tidal Tunes, Monthly Membership, $9.99)

What better way to kick the season off than with some tunes? Nothing will make your sunny skies brighter than some great dance tunes! For us, we enjoy an array of music, from pop to grunge to r&b, but it’s just something about a healthy dose of hip-hop, trap and line dance hits that take us to where we need to be! Keep your ear out for songs that make you nod your head and move your body, as those are the ones you want to add to your playlist. Once your list is complete, throw on your spring threads, open the windows and crank those tunes!

Until next time, live F.A.B with no regrets!
