Spring sass for little cash

(Continued)

VALDOSTA — Crisp in khakis.

I know what some of you are thinking: But khakis never went out of style? Well, sorry, for a bit they did. But guess what? They came back last winter and they are here to stay. Khakis and a neon-colored blouse tucked in with some stilettos say, ‘Hello, gorgeous!’. Don’t be scared to play with your khakis. If they are boot cut, roll them a few times to make a cute boyfriend pant. If they are wide-legged, roll them to make a singular cuff that screams sophistication (a little secret: iron them down to make them stay all day).

Cardigan candy.

Cardigans are like a piece of candy — they are always sweet and when it comes to spring, they can take you from winter functional to fabulous. If you have a cute sun dress that’s strapless or has spaghetti straps that you can’t wear to work, throw on a bright colored cardigan. Opposites attract so blue dress, green sweater, pink dress, yellow sweater. You can really make anything work. For a slim waist, do a belt (wide or skinny) around the outside of the sweater.

Jam up those jeans!

Do you have some jeans that are too long, too short and too ugly to wear? Of course, you do; everyone does. Cut those suckers off about an inch to two inches below your knee and roll them into a cuff right above your knee. Believe me, you will look so Tory Burch.

Wedge ya’ catch me later?

OK, get over it already, if you don’t have wedges, buckle down and buy some. They are only essential like every spring since the ’60s. If you can’t afford to buy every color like me, get a nice nude (white gets dirty way too quickly), a good black and you are ready to rock wedges with every outfit.
