Spring Styling Tips from Katie’s Bliss

Everyone knows shopping is better with friends. That's why we tapped one of our blogger buddies, the extremely fashionable Katie Manwaring, of Katie’s Bliss, to co-host a special event event with us at Joie's NYC boutique this Thursday (RSVP here if you’re in the area!) As a little pre-party homework, she stopped by the shop to check out the collection. See how Katie styles three spring-ready outfits, and get tips on wearing these trends this season.

How to Style: A Maxi Dress


During the warm-weather months I basically live in maxi dresses. They are easy to style and so breathable—perfect for busy (and hot) days. The Joie Maruceka Dress can easily transition from day to night. For an office look, I'd accessorize with a few stacks of bangles and flat sandals. Then, before heading to dinner I'd switch into these gladiator heels and top my dress with a leather jacket.

How to Style: A Pleated Skirt

A pleated skirt is a valuable closet staple, especially when it's in a neutral color. The Fola Skirt can essentially match any cool-toned top, printed or solid. I paired it with a floral tank but could just have easily swapped it for a cotton tee or crop top.

How to Style: Floral Pants

Slouchy pants can be tricky to pull off, but when paired with the right pieces you can create a tailored yet relaxed look. To make these Theron B pants a little dressier, I went with a sleeveless crop top and the gladiator heels (again!)
