Floral and feminine finds for spring 2017

One of the hottest trends this spring is a fresh, feminine look. While many of us have strayed from the idea of dressing too feminine, whether it’s because you’re more comfortable in a colorblocked or black ensemble, or because you fear looking like you’re dressing too young, we’re here to put an end to those doubts. We have some ways that you can embrace this aesthetic this spring. Watch the video and read more below.

 

“Choose coral, cream or mint.”

Lace

Lace is a timeless staple when it come to feminine apparel, but a lot of women hesitate to wear it because it can make an outfit too sexy. It can be a challenge to create a work-appropriate lace look when the same fabric is commonly used on lingerie. However, this spring, make it happen. The first key to rocking lace is to keep the color light – which isn’t hard to do this time of year! Coral, cream, and mint are three great shades that will keep your outfit from looking too sultry. Even if you choose a darker shade, bigger, less delicate looking laces are typically more work-appropriate than their detailed counterparts. This style of lace almost has more of a crochet-look to it, which is also very seasonal. When wearing a lace blouse, ensure that your bra straps don’t show by layering a camisole beneath it.

Florals

Floral prints are an essential addition to any woman’s springtime wardrobe. If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon just yet, here are some pointers. The best way to wear florals is to allow your floral print piece be in the spotlight. For example, if you have flowers on your dress, keep your accessories to a minimum, and wear solid-colored shoes. Floral shoes, on the other hand are a great way to add a little bit of spice to an otherwise plain outfit. If the temperatures haven’t caught up to your idea of spring just yet, consider wearing some slim-cut dress slacks, and your favorite women’s blazer along with a chic new pair of floral pumps!

Brights

Brights are one of the most exciting things about the spring, especially since you’ve probably been lurking beneath layers of dark and neutral tones all winter! Whether you’re adding some color to an otherwise neutral outfit with a brightly colored fashion scarf, or going bold with a dress with brightly colored patterns, there is no shortage of ways to throw some of your favorite spring shades into your wardrobe.

  5. +So relieved to see shoes I might be able to wear without breaking something!! Not all women are models and I would love to be able to wear those stilettos but common sense–I can’t.

  6. In all of the years I’ve been married, I have never purchased clothing for my wife. However, a new era arrived in my mail box when your catalog arrived. Just about everything in it was absolutely breathtaking, at least from a man’s point of view.

    I ordered two separate and complete outfits for her birthday next month. I’m sure that she will love both outfits. Best styles of women’s clothing I’ve ever seen. And your prices were more than reasonable.

  11. I would love for you to start making petite pants available for those of us whom are vertically challenged. Love to here back.

    1. Hi Kelly, We have carried petite sizes in the past and didn’t have much interest. Our sister company, Monroe and Main, does have a pair of trousers that comes in petite if you wanted to check them out here: http://www.monroeandmain.com/Clothing/Wear-to-Work/Work-Pants/Audrey-Trouser.pro

    2. Thanks Kelly. We have offered petites in the past, but didn’t get enough interest to continue. We will pass along your feedback though because maybe we’ll try again. Thanks!

  12. Please sent a book to order george hill

    1. Hi George, we’ll need more info than this to mail you a catalog. You could email us at socialcs@sccompanies.com. Thanks.

    2. Please provide your mailing address to: socialcs@sccompanies.com and we will. 🙂

  13. I have always been stopped while in public for comments, such as “I love your outfit, where did you find such beautiful, stylish, one of a kind outfits”. However I wear size 4 slacks or skirts and find you are not offering these lovely pants small enough. I have shared your catalogs with strangers and think I should get a commission on referals! Lol. In reality in life I have always turned to your company for award dinners and semi-formal one of a kind outfits. Thank you for making a 74 yearold lady look a decade younger and feeling like a model!

    1. Love hearing this Carolyn! We would like to send you a little something. Email us at socialmv@midnightvelvet.com your address and we will send you something to thank you for the referrals! 🙂 We will pass along the feedback to our merchandisers for carrying size 4. Thanks again for being a fan! 🙂

  14. Clothing from Monroe and Main comes shipped like it’s been thrown in a box .I’ve never seen so many wrinkles in all my life. Clothes have to be professionally presed. If you ship like that I would like to know before I order. I’ve only seen positive feedback about Midnight Velvet and this will be my first order. I’ve had experiences with Monroe and Main, very disappointed in their clothing

    1. Hi Rosemary, let us know how your first order goes with us. We’d love the feedback: socialmv@midnightvelvet.com.
