With spring literally around the corner, it’s time to talk about what we are going to wear ladies!  While coloured denim has become a mainstay in many women’s wardrobes, the hottest trend for Spring 2014 is light wash denim, a look that has been worn by celebrities for some time (proof: jean queen Jessica Alba), but is only now translating into the mass market.

From skinny jeans to boyfriend jeans to jean dresses, everything is coming up light blue it seems this spring!  Personally I am eyeing a pair of light wash boyfriend style jeans (think looser fit in the legs overall but still a tapered look) to wear with a crisp white tee for my spring uniform.  Blank Denim seems to be getting lots of buzz in the fashion world right now, and at a price point under $100, they are a steal for a celebrity loved brand.  Mainstay brands like Old Navy and the Gap are also offering multiple styles of light wash denim.

Not a jeans and tee-shirt kind of lady?  Try a light wash denim dress in a flattering A-line cut or timeless light blue chambray shirt.  While darker denim shoes might seem tacky, a printed wedge or sneaker in light denim is a great option for spring and summer.  Denim bags are also popping up – I like the Fossil “Erin” satchel in light blue/grey denim for a unique twist on this trend.  It’s a great size and a classic shape that would pair well with both casual and dressier outfits.
