Spring Fashion Shopping Guide

Welcome to Shop In Chic's first ever official shopping
guide. Every season I will post a new shopping guide
to help you sort out what you have,what you need,and
find where to get the essentials. I will cover clothes,
shoes,bags and accessories. This will guide you in every
aspect of style,trends and what looks best on you.


Spring Essential List-
Go through your closet and check to see if you have
some of these items. Check what you have,what condition
they're in and what you don't have. From there on make
a shopping list,go ahead and get a little extra things
you may already have (no one can have to many camisoles).
Remember that this here is just a general list of what
everyone should have regardless of color or style
of the garments.


Sundresses
Long sundresses/Maxi dresses
Rompers/Jumpsuits/Shortalls
Tee shirts
Tanks
Camisoles
Caftans/Tunics
Jeans
Skirts
Shorts
Sweatpants/Cotton pants
Capri pants



Spring/Summer 2008 Trends
To give you a better feel of what's out there,I have
compiled this list of the trends. You don't have to
follow these trends if you don't want,but this will
let you know what is out there and what to expect.


Bold Prints/Florals
Bright Colors
Safari Style
Colorblocking
Wide Leg Pants


Remember that if you use trends,try and only use one
at a time. The same applies with accessories. Like you
don't want to wear a safari inspired jacket with bright
bangles. You don't want to look like you're trying too
hard.

Smart choices-
Wide leg pants with a snug fitting tank.
A colorblock blouse and dark blue jeans.
A bright print dress with black flats.


Spring Accessory List
You may have some of these,but you may not have all of
the accessories mentioned here. Unlike the first list
you don't need everything on this list,but at least one
pair of each of the shoes mention here,and several of
small accessories. Small accessories won't cost as much
as the the others so you can buy cheap stuff and have
fun with it.


Straw tote bag
Solid bright color handbag
Semi-clear/Semi-print plastic tote
White handbag
Flats
Flip-flops
Plain white tennis shoes
Espadrilles
Solid bright pumps
Gladiater sandals
Bright print scarfs
Bright color scarfs




What Works For You
Everyone one is different looks and taste-wise. And while
I don't know what you like,I do know what looks best
on what body type. While almost anyone can wear whats on these
lists,this is just a small guide to what flatters you the most.
