I am thrilled to be patterning with JD Williams again for a fun post on spring fashion and up to date trends. JD Williams, an incredible brand from Great Britain that is now available in the US. Known for figure flattering fashion; JD Williams and sister company Simply Be understand that your shape is unique and are experts in size and fit, offering sizes from 6-28. “Fashion that fits and flatters at amazing prices.” I have to say that these are words that every woman loves to hear. Celebrating women of all shapes and sizes is finally “in Vogue” these days and the fashion community is recognizing that everyone is not a size 2 but women everywhere want to look and feel comfortable and confident in their clothes. I write this Fashionomics blog but I am also a wardrobe consultant and my goal in working with my clients is to make sure they feel beautiful from the inside out. “Fashion is meant to be fun!” and girls love clothes. I am impressed by the mission statement of JD Williams in recognizing that women come in all shapes and sizes and that cost is an important issue. I always recommend shopping with a purpose and a budget. JD Williams is offering a fantastic discount code to Fashionomics readers. 40% off full priced items with code DEBBY40. You will already love their prices!!
Well, it is almost Valentine’s Day and I love red but pink might be my fave; is a bit more fun and so feminine. I just love this on-trend outfit and had so much fun putting it together with my friends at JD Williams. This pale pink mock suede jacket is just the perfect addition to a spring wardrobe. It is super soft and the prettiest blush color. I can see myself wearing it with everything. Now, I am obsessed with these stripe satin wide leg trousers. You will see that stripes are a huge trend this season and black and white is everywhere. I saw this almost exact pant on a very expensive website and, get ready , these are $49.49. Get out!!!!! I can tell you that they are lined, beautifully constructed and available in sizes 6-22!!!!!! The drawstring waist gives a pajama pant or track pant look. Notice the fashion detail feature in the wide band at the bottom. Love the touch of gray and we decided to pair them with pink. Don’t you like this combo? Now, about these pale pink loafers that are so comfy and well priced at $45.99. I don’t usually include price points in my blog posts but these are too good to keep to myself. I am very impressed with the quality and updated fashion for an affordable price. Pink is so happy and you will see me wearing these shoes with white jeans this summer for sure. Now this is an outfit you can wear around town and be comfortable and also look pulled together. And just think about traveling with these pieces, so many options!!!
This is such a pretty and feminine ruffle front blouse and was the perfect relaxed piece to add to this outfit. It would also work with a dressier pant or jean. It is a bit sheer but I just wore a nude bra and you couldn’t see through it. You could also add a camisole if you wanted. You will notice that ruffles are still here this year as well as the pretty sleeve detailing you have been seeing for several seasons. This top is long enough to wear out over a slim pant or jean.
Let’s make a list of all of the places you could wear this shirred waist split sleeve dress!! Am I going to lunch, a meeting, a lecture, church, cocktails or dinner? The possibilities are endless. I have always loved polka dots and think this is one print you can mix with almost anything. Again notice the black and white trend and JD Williams fashion that is always on point and up to date!! I hope you can see the details on this very light weight sheer but lined versatile dress. The shirred waist and sleeve give you style, comfort and a very flattering fit. I chose to wear a belt but you don’t necessarily need one. I hope you can see the split sleeve which gives it a but of an updated feel and it has a very feminine vibe to say the least. All of my clients want a sleeve but don’t want to be hot in the summer. This covers all of the bases and is very light weight and breezy for spring and summer as temperatures rise. In the category of “Get the look for less”, well here you go lookin’ fabulous for $79.99 plus the DEBBY40 discount code!!! Time to shop!!
In my last blog post for JD Williams I featured another cocktail dress with this same very figure flattering “fit and flare” style. Now ladies, what could be better than a special occasion dress that accents your waist and hides your hips. The bateau neckline is an added bonus because it exposes just enough of your décolletage and presents a wider illusion at the shoulder giving a balance to your body. I always say that fit is all about proportion. This Johanna Hope cocktail dress is such a pretty combination of classic black with a splash of beautiful pink and white flowers. Love this large print that really makes a statement. Spring is coming and you will be ready to go to any special event that requires a very pretty cocktail dress. I love having dresses in my closet that I can count on for a party or wedding because I do not like having to shop at the last minute in a frantic attempt to find the perfect outfit. All you need to complete this ensemble is a great shoe, statement earrings and fun little bag. You are ready to go out the door and you won’t keep your date waiting. (one of my husband’s pet peeves when we are heading out!!!)
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with some special sweet treats and flowers. I love that my daughter’s friends had a Galentine’s party, sometimes girlfriends and just the best dates!! Love you all and so appreciate each one of you and can’t thank you enough for reading my blog and following Fashionomics. I try to keep you updated on Instagram in addition to my blog posts. Spring is coming and that is always a happy and beautiful time of year and great chance to spruce up your wardrobe. Also I want to thank my fabulous photographer, Mary Summers Hafner, who hung with me on this freezing cold and very, very windy day and somehow managed to get some beautiful shots of the JD Williams spring fashions!! Love you to pieces Mary!! I couldn’t do this without you!! XO Debby
Don’t forget the very generous discount code Debby 40!!
