Nyc fashion blogger Kathleen Harper's spring fashion ideas
Spotted on every street style star and fashionable coworker alike, the jumpsuit is now cooler than ever. Wear yours over a logo tee (or plain crop top like me) and finish off your look with statement earrings. THAT'S the new way to wear this red-hot trend!

Breeze between seasons with a chambray button-down. Whether it's tied around your waist or thrown over your shoulders, keep this versatile piece on hand to fend off the chills until summer.

Elevate your daywear with popping accessories like fire-engine red earrings and a lip to match. Red accents compliment virtually every color combo, but if red's not your thang, try cobalt blue or canary yellow accessories -- those hues are also known for being universally flattering.

I recently wore this outfit to brunch with friends at The Smith and then shopping with Antonio. Walking all over the flatiron district that day, I realized how much I love jumpers, how I don't own enough of them, and how I desperately need more. Luckily they're SO huge right now so pretty much every store has tons of options to choose from. 

I love the styles below, and my goal is to add at least one or two more to my wardrobe before spring ends.

Blue Velvet // silver accents + velvet blazer

Nyc fashion blogger Kathleen Harper's spring outfit ideas
While velvet may have been one of winter's biggest trends, it's def not going anywhere now that winter is (kind of) over. To style the luxe look for spring, pair it with cool graphic tees, colorful jewelry, and so-now metallics

Velvet undoubtedly made an impact this past year. And for good reason! The irresistible fabric is surprisingly easy to work into your off-duty uniform. Here, I simply paired it with jeans and eclectic accessories. It would look just as fabulous with light-wash denim or over a breezy sundress too.

As the weather SLOWLYYYY starts to warm up, I love wearing oversized blazers as a jacket. They literally go with just about everything and serve as a stylish way to keep warm.

I wore this outfit this past weekend for brunch and furniture shopping with Antonio. And until sundress weather comes along, I'm just loving not having to weigh myself down with wintery bulk. I think we all can officially say goodbye to our scarves, hats, and fuzzy boots!

While spring weather may be off track, your wardrobe doesn't have to be. Trendy separates are a fun way to get excited about warmer weather (whenever that's coming), and there's no pant hotter right now than the track pant

Fashion's favorite pant is a lot more versatile than you may think. I love mine paired with a luxe biker jacket for added polish. Heeled suede booties are ideal for now, while open-toed mules are perfect for later.

If you're as sick of your winter coat as I am, ditch it and opt for a heavy leather jacket - it's almost just as warm but it's a whole lot chicer. For date night, rock a slinky velvet cami underneath. And don't forget so-now cat-eye shades for daytime. See? You'll look like you were MADE for springtime!

We all thought our days of snow were behind us, but alas, it snowed once again earlier this week. Luckily it all melted by noon. Still though, snow? In April? If you're over it, raise your hand!
