It's fun to follow the newest trends and show off all the latest fashion styles, but there's something to be said about a tried and true classic. A classic piece is timeless, flattering and never goes out of style. One of my favorite classics is the shirt or trenchcoat dress, a piece that's versatile, feminine, and so easy to dress up or down. While the usual shirt dress is a little on the conservative (but still totally cute) side, it's easy to add a little bit of sophisticated sex appeal and make it spring/summer ready. Simply go sleeveless! Baring a little skin makes you look and feel easy, breezy, and classically ready for some fun in the sun!

I have to say, ever since the asymmetrical trend once again reemerged last year, I keep thinking that it's only a matter of time before fashionistas change their minds and send it back to the reject pile of failed re-tried fads. But so far the whole one-shoulder look has only seemed to grow in popularity with the passing seasons... and now to keep things fresh, the trend is getting fancified with ruffles. Yup, one-shoulder ruffles. Sounds like a weird combination, but I gotta admit, the result is totally hot for spring and summer! After all, let's face it --as much as I was a skeptic, it's pretty genius because it combines three of the hottest trends: ruffles, asymmetry, and exaggerated shoulders. Put a trendy spin on your basic LBD with this silk version by Susana Monaco, or keep things fun and flirty for day with a one-shoulder ruffled romper! If you're game to try out this trend-on-trend-on-trend combo look, check out the slideshow for my favorite one-shoulder ruffled pieces!
