MAGICAL MAXIS

Ah, the ever-versatile floral maxi. Dress it up in heels for a spring wedding or down in flip flops for that casual-yet-still-chic combo. You’ll have everyone else second guessing their jogger choices as you ease your way running errands.

With spot-on season lilac colors and a high slit – this maxi from Windsor is a whole vibe. What could possibly make it any better? How about pairing it with this season’s other huge obsession, the crochet sweater. This white cardi from Milly fits the look perfectly.

Speaking of trends – our crush on green is major this season. From dark emeralds to savory sage, 2022 is awash in lush green colors. Here’s a gorgeous example, made of flowy chiffon that will give you top sashay moments as you show off that flirty high slit and open crisscross back. But when the breeze picks up (as it does in spring) you’ll be happy to have on hand this cable knit cardi. Bonus – they’re both from Windsor, so you have zero excuses not to buy both right now. YW!

This next look is a study in playful proportions. With it’s off-the-shoulder silhouette, you might think this flouncy floral has no cute accomplice. Challenge accepted. This cutout shoulder cardi from Danielle Guizio’s new season is the cropped cashmere cutie that will match perfectly with this flowy, equally-stylish floral maxi.

You may have to remind people to breathe again after you walk into the room dripping in this number. With layers of ethereal floral flocked velvet and semi-sheer mesh over icy pale pink, this is your new go-to stunner for any formal events you have this S/S season. A dress this special deserves something equally special. This super-cropped, frothy-fuzzy angora cardi from Michael Kors is like slipping on a cloud.

We are loving the retro print on this glorious maxi from Milly. While it is definitely an investment piece, the attention to detail makes it all worth it. Nude underlay covered entirely by sheer layer made up of hand-stitched embroidered flowers. Thinking it’s a shame to cover this up? We agree, unless you do it with something equally gorg Cinq A Sept puff sleeve cardi with Swarovski crystal embellishments. Très magnifique!!

MARVELOUS MIDIS

Spring can often be a bit, ahem…fickle, in the weather department. Hence our love of the midi. Hitting at that just-right length, it can be a game changer when you’re not sure if the day will be too hot or too cold. Here are some marvelous ones we found, along with their loveable companion.

Hands up if you’ve fallen big time for the season’s biggest trend – the cutout. We’ve seen this delight of negative space take over just about everything. We even wrote a whole article about it! So when we saw this sweet beauty, we were hooked. The sweetheart neckline above and flirty, twirly skirt below, this midi then adds a fun high-waist cutout. With such a fun element, you certainly wouldn’t want to cover that up. This harmonious tie-front cardi keeps your cutout still on display while playing up the fun peachy colors in both pieces.

Who says a midi can’t have a little va-voom? Not this coquettish, ruffled midi from Windsor. This dress was made to show some leg. What else sold us on this fun floral? The material is lightweight scuba knit fabric. That means you can have your bodycon silhouette and easy stretch too! Such a fitting number as this deserves and equally easy-fit-but-fitted partner. This knitted cardi from Maje is made of soft cotton with just a wee bit of spandex. So it keeps its shape without making you feel encumbered. And we just love the semi-sheer, lacy balloon sleeves.

Got a lot on your social plate? This midi is your absolute go-to. The silhouette allows for breezing through the day from event to event. Casual morning? Pair it with some sneaks. Gal lunch later? Just add sunnies and flatforms. Dinner date? Glam it up with some killer heels. One thing you definitely don’t wanna forget is to bring its kindred cutie, in the form of this equally multi-tasking cashmere cardigan from Barrie. Keep it loose and open (tying the strings into a cute bow in the back) or wrap it around for a body con look.
