This look incorporates a few trends happening right now. First of all, denim is all the rage. Designers like Stella McCartney and Derek Lam featured many head-to-toe denim looks in their Spring 2011 shows. We've paired a denim shirt with denim pants, but kept it a bit more wearable by using blue and white denim together. The white jeans also bring up another perennial spring trend - white. And little tough jackets were all over the Spring Burberry Prorsum runway so don't shy away from pairing yours with your favorite spring pieces.

We loved the gray jeans at the Spring 2011 Chanel show and the sharp jackets at the Spring 2011 Moschino show and decided to take this inspiration and interpret it to a 'real life' look. The result is slick, urban, easily wearable and perfect for temperatures that hover in between cold and warm.

Stripes and a midi-length skirt are the spring trends we are working here. You will find stripes plentiful this spring and they go with pretty much anything you can think of. I am loving midi-length skirts and they have a very pretty pleated midi-length skirt at Zara right now that I think will be so perfect for spring.

How to segue into spring when the weather is not quite cold, but not quite warm yet? Not to mention those rogue spring days that jump back to chilly temperatures. We think a maxi skirt and a little layering work well for early spring dressing. When the day starts with a little chill in the air throw on a scarf and furry sweatshirt, but then easily remove those layers as the afternoon warms up. All types of maxi skirts are uber cool right now and through the summer. Lulu's and Urban Outfitters have some nice choices.

Here are two very classic, beautiful looks from the Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011 collection. The first look shows how to wear wide-leg trousers simply and elegantly - one can work a trend while still retaining timeless appeal. And I am loving the feather capelet with the cocktail frock in the second look. I found a feather capelet once, in just this mauve color, at Topshop and should have bought it on the spot, but alas I waited too long and it was too late. Now I see how heavenly it would have looked with a pretty pale dress...

With wide leg pants making a big comeback this spring, the palazzo pant is a lovely, relaxed way to get in on this fashion trend. You can wear a palazzo pant now, with a sweater and scarf or, as it gets warmer, with your favorite blouses. I can't think of anything more comfortable. And the 'BY MARC JACOBS' watch... very cool.
