These are the five essential wardrobe pieces that you have to add to your spring closet. Check out the new trends, classic staples and styles that are coming back from a few decades ago.

1. Embroidered Jeans

Embroidered jeans are a classic spring style. From embroidered flowers to birds, they are a must. The best embroidered jeans are colorful with fun patterns and a light wash. Pair embroidered jeans with a color block top or plain white T, and you are ready for spring. Embroidered jeans are great if you want to wear something casual yet chic at the same time—minimal effort for maximum fashion.

2. Long Shorts

Long shorts are a trend new to 2018. As seen on the Kardashians, long shorts that reach just above the knee cap are in style this spring. Often fashion statements like these come back in style, resembling Bermuda shorts, but in a chicer style like jeans or cotton. Check out some trendy, long jean shorts at

3. Graphic Bags

Graphic bags are the new "it bag." Remember the bucket bag trend? Graphic bags are even better, popping with spring colors and textural florals. They are perfect to match with a fit and flare dress or jeans. Bring your graphic bag to brunch with you, or even to a job interview; they can be professional in the right print. Kate Spade is a statement designer for floral print handbags and graphic backpacks. Check out the graphic bag trend at department stores like Lord and Taylor and Macy’s.

4. Striped Pants

Striped pants are a key trend to add to your spring wardrobe. Flowy, bootcut pants or culottes with black/blue and white thin stripes are the go-to business casual, cool girl pants of the season. They are casual yet trendy at the same time; they portray the message of effortless fashion while still being stylish. Pair these pants with white Vans or Sam Smith sneakers and you are on point. Get your relaxed striped pants at fashionnova or forever 21.

5. Strappy Heels

You can never go wrong with strappy heels. Whether they are suede or lace-ups, strappy heels match with everything. They are a classic staple and can be paired with jeans, a dress or a jumpsuit. Wear them to a wedding, on a date, or just hanging out with friends because they can be casual but cute at the same time. Find your perfect pair at Lulu’s or thereddressboutique just in time for spring.

Catch me wearing all of these trends this spring. Add these five new trends to your closet and you will be an unstoppable fashion icon. Embrace the warm weather and rock these five essential wardrobe pieces to add to your spring closet… and maybe summer.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.
