Ambrose shared some inside scoop with Black Voices on what her favorite trends for spring are and where we'll be able to get runway looks for less.
Washed Denim is one of the most popular and one of the easiest trends to replicate. Everyone from Gap, ZARA, Forever 21, and H&M has created versatile looks based on this trend. The washed-denim look encompasses everything from vests, shirts, jeans, skirts, jackets etc. The key aspect that sets the washed-denim trend apart from others is that you might already have a pair of old jean that you thought were too faded or worn lying around. Ambrose told us it's time to dig into the crevices of your closet and bring out your "old" jeans. The washed out, bleached, frayed and faded looks are in high demand.
"Spring is definitely about the grungy and worn denim look," she said.
This look can be translated in many different ways to make some fantastic outfits. The over-sized cardigan, unique bow-ties made out of unique fabrics, and boyfriend jeans are just a few items that will give you the opportunity to turn yourself into a sexy tomboy.
"If you're on the curvier side you want to choose a graphic print item that has a low plunging neck-line," Ambrose said, "because you don't want to look like you've been swallowed up by the print."
Another great tip that Ambrose shared for curvy ladies who want to rock this trend is to break up the graphic print by pairing it with a solid colored item. If you are wearing a graphic print dress throw on a pair solid colored shoes or a light weight solid cropped sweater. It's important to remember that these graphic prints will be just enough; so no need to wear heavy jewelry.
"This trend is really fun because you can find so many great pieces at flea-markets and retailers like Forever 21, Banana Republic, and Club Monaco. Big statement jewels can also be worn as wonderful day to night pieces, depending on the shine of the jewelry. June says it best: " Spring is all about accessorizing and punctuation, punctuation, punctuation!"
"Don't go crazy on the leather and wear it from head to toe," Ambrose warned. She advises leather lovers to break up the leather look to give it a soft and sleek appeal.
"You don't want to go all the way with this trend," she said. "If you want to wear biker boots , a contrasting compliment would be to wear them with a sundress".
