Boho Braids to Wild Waves  

060915_summer hair_braids waves

Braids are the perfect go-to look for summer. Stylishly sweep those loose hairs out of your face by tucking your hair back in a chic braid. Later in the day, if you’ve had enough of your braid or you’re getting ready for a night out, you can unravel your braids for a messy wave look! Wear these looks with a maxi dress and cute sandals.

The “Lob”

Also known as the long bob – we have seen this popular cut floating around for a little bit now. Whether you’re looking to go all out and chop off several inches or just want to try something different with your short to mid-length hair, the long bob must be your next look! Strut out in your new hair by slipping on a romper and some gladiator sandals.

Style this look: Romper // Gladiator Sandals

Wet & Slick

If you want to be daring and try something different, break out the gel for the wet and slicked-back look. Prevent flyaways and baby hairs without worrying about overdoing it on the gel! You can let your hair down or tie it up in a bun or a pony. To step up the sleekness of this look, go for some skinny jeans and a sleeveless shirt.

Style this look: Blue Jeans // Button-Up Top

Posh Loves Moms: Buy & Sell Maternity Fashion With Poshmark

050615_POSHTIP_maternity

We’ve redefined mom jeans, shared inspiring stories and encouraged moms to splurge a little on themselves. In the last of our series for Mother’s Day this year, we’re talking about maternity fashion. What can you expect when you’re expecting? To look good, that’s what!

Of course, it’s not just about how to find amazing maternity clothes, but also about selling the styles that you don’t plan to wear again. Not sure where to get started? We’ve got you covered!

6 Tips for Buying & Selling Maternity Fashion on Poshmark

  1. Utilize search and filters. Some of your favorite brands have maternity lines, like ASOS, H&M and GAP. To find these, head to the search bar and search “maternity.” Then filter by brands and categories. Don’t forget to head to the brands page to find popular maternity brands like A Pea in the Pod, Motherhood Maternity,  Ripe Maternity and Isabella Oliver. Don’t see it listed? We’re constantly updating this section, but you can always search for other cute brands like Rosie Pope, Olian Maternity and Seraphine.
  2. Rethink size. While the “My Size” filter is great for shopping, sometimes it’s helpful to turn that feature off to be able to search outside your size and have more options to choose from. Plus, as moms who know will tell you, you don’t always have to size up just because you’re feeling large.
  3. Basics and accessories are your friends. These are the secrets to good maternity style and often can be found outside of the maternity category. Look at styles you currently love and see which items will be your best investment. Chances are you’ll wear jeans, tees and an LBD, and then you can mix it up with jackets, scarves, bags, shoes and jewelry.
  4. Prep your listings in advance. Free time is limited after the baby arrives, especially if he or she isn’t your first bundle of joy. By taking cute, styled and/or modeled photos in advance and saving them to your device, listing the items while multitasking will be a breeze.
  5. Create a searchable listing description. Knowing our above tips for searching, keep this in mind when it’s time to create a listing. Thoughtful listing titles, descriptions and sizes will ensure that your items will be discovered.
  6. Spread the word to other moms and moms-to-be. Have great deals? Find something you love? Don’t keep it a secret! Help each other out and spread the word about buying and selling maternity fashion on Poshmark. Utilize the sharing features to post your closet and individual listings via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and more!

Get the Look: Fresh Florals

Ready! Get set! Spring! We’re ready to pack away our heavy winter duds and dust off the light, bright florals! The sun is starting to come out, and we are looking for new twists on old classics, dark florals, and sweetly printed dresses. Here are some ways to rock this classic print in an ever-so-fresh way.

New and Unexpected

040215_get the look_floral sunglasses

Sunglasses are a great way to display your florals. We love this fresh take with the natural element of stone woven in. Be warned: this style is not for the faint of fashion, and will attract compliments!

040215_get the look_floral shoes

Admittedly not as obviously floral as some of our other picks, but these mixed print Rebecca Minkoff sandals are the perfect spring accessory. The bright spots of color bring to mind an impressionist painting, and what better way to celebrate the warmer weather than by a stroll with by a lilly pond? Mix and match with your favorite spring dress, or some distressed boyfriend jeans for a more casual look.

040215_get the look_floral espadrilles

Floral from head to toe! The print on these espadrilles will have you begging for more. As the weather keeps warming up, we’re dreaming of lazy Sundays at the park with these beauties.

Dark Obsessions

040215_get the look_floral top

Nothing makes a floral pattern pop like a dark background. Plus, this way, we don’t have to give up all of our winter darks. The neon and neutral combination in this J. Crew floral top make for a great, breezy statement.

040215_get the look_floral skirt

Florals popping through textured metallic give an unexpected bold and dark look. We’re huge fans of this pencil skirt with a classic brocade pattern. It’s a good compromise until the snow melts away completely. (Sorry, East Coast. We’re rooting for you!)

040215_get the look_floral romper

Mix up your Spring style game with a romper. The playful pattern, again on a dark background, make this a fun way to switch up a classic print. Sweet with enough sass to keep it interesting, this pattern can easily take you from dinner and a movie to an evening of dancing and cocktails.

Light, Airy and Delicate

040215_get the look_cream dress

Creamy lace is classically spring, but deep V-necks and cut-outs make for a modern look. Take this easy pick for spring evenings: the delicate floral pattern balances a bold neckline, and lace paneling keeps the dress mysterious with the right hint of sexy.

040215_get the look_blush dress

This dress has a sweet print and even sweeter neckline that will make for a perfect backdrop to a spring date. The splashes of pink remind us of a cherry blossom tree, and the flattering shape has us dreaming of sweet treats!

040215_get the look_delicate dress

Spring time, tea time; tea time, spring time. The two practically go hand in hand! With a feminine shape and delicate pattern, afternoon tea just got a fashion upgrade. Pair this flowy floral dress with layered, delicate jewelry, or add a statement belt or shoe. Either way, you’ll be the talk of the tea!
