This season, there is an overall change in direction. We’re talking about spring silhouettes and their “it’s not as tricky to pull off as you think” proportions.

Consider us your source of inspiration. We show you just how chic a longer top looks layered over a calf-grazing skirt and that you can pull off a crop top with ease. (The secret? Seek out a style that grazes the top of a high-waist pant.) We also dish on how to reinvent some of your tried and true closet staples, like the mini dress. Let us introduce you to the faux mini skirt: Simply layer a shell over a form-fitting mini skirt. And voilà, you’ve got a new look.

We shared the secrets on how to pull off the “It” pieces of the season. Ready for your crash course? Watch the video above and get ready to tackle spring’s not-so-tricky trends.
