What trend is flattering on everyone?
RC: " 'It' shapes and silhouettes don't translate to every body type or age, but colors and themes, like indigo and deep blues, which have been shown a lot for spring, are a way to find universal inspiration."
AD: "A slightly high-waisted pant, a skinny belt, and a loose-fitting, short-sleeved button-down top in a cool pattern . . . to be specific. This season, designers have been doing patterns beautifully, and there are tons of options out there."
JF: "Can't go wrong with an LBD!"
AP: "Black as an 'it' summer color."
RP: "Fit-to-flare dresses, a silhouette that expands on the flattering peplum looks that are carrying over from fall and winter. For most women, the waist is the smallest part of the body, and fit-to-flare dresses really accentuate that."
NZ: "I'm quite pleased that the peplum trend has legs. It's a great silhouette that creates curves for miles. It cinches in an hourglass waist and is a rather flattering disguise for upper hips so you can ditch the Spanx. What's not to love?"
Give us one quick fix that can bring us up to speed without a total wardrobe overhaul.
RC: "Invest in a spa day — pamper yourself and exfoliate dry winter skin. When you feel good about yourself, you will look good!"
AD: "Check out vintage shops for extraordinary pieces — but take the time to be patient and look. . . . And if all else fails, a chic brown leather jacket can bring you into spring, and you can wear it year round!"
JF: "A statement necklace is the best way to jazz up an outfit without having to spend a lot of money. There are amazing options for every price range, and you can pair it with everything from a white T-shirt to a patterned dress."
AP: "An ivory or pastel scarf: an easy accessory allows you to commit to the colors of the season without committing to the outfit."
RP: "Even if you are just wearing jeans and a white tee, a brightly patterned scarf completely updates your look. I'm obsessed with Theodora & Callum scarves, which come in unique tribal-inspired prints in fabulous color combinations."
NZ: "A bold, matte lip color — neon pink, classic red, deep plum — is the quickest and cheapest means of brightening up your outfit. Try NARS matte lip pencils and lipsticks in Train Bleu, Dragon Girl, and Carthage (the best bright pink money can buy!)."
