3 Spring Must-Haves, Styled 4 Ways

April 25, 2019


Erin Schrader

When designing our spring Gibson x Living in Yellow collection we had two things at the top of our mind — wearability and versatility. We wanted pieces that were effortless and easy to wear [while still keeping a strong emphasis on the visual appeal] and second, pieces that you could truly mix and match and wear a number of ways in your life from dressed up for the workplace to dressed down for Saturday’s on the go! Thankfully, I think we succeeded at both.

Today we wanted to bring you all three of our bottoms from the collection in one fun color to show you just how easy it is to mix and match and wear for whatever life brings your way!

Let’s start with the Daphne Scallop Skirt. This skirt is special for so many reasons — let’s start with the scallop detail. Add scallops to anything and It goes from zero to hero. Second, the contrasting waistband. On the yellow, we put a white waistband on it which really helps accentuate the waist and make any outfit look that much more elevated. It is fully lined and the length is great! I would recommend sizing up one [I’m wearing here in XS but need it in a small].

For the Office: By pairing the Daphne Scallop Skirt with our Willow Tiered Peplum Top  tucked in and throwing a blazer on top with a pair of heels to polish it off, you’re ready to tackle the work day while lookin’ extra chic.

Saturday Brunch: I love this dressed down version of the skirt with our softer than soft Poppy Puff Shoulder Tee. Paired with a simple pair of sandals, you look adorable while not overly done up. Pass the rose please…

Spring Wedding: Scallops on scallops. If you’re on the lucky ones who have a plethora of weddings to attend this spring or summer, this outfit is all sorts of wedding guest ready. This yellow Savannah Scalloped V-Neck Tank pairs perfectly with its bottom half and nude ankle strap heels!

Baby Shower: There’s never a better time to break out shades of babies than for a baby shower! Navy and yellow couldn’t be a better combination for this! I simply tucked the Willow Tiered Peplum Top in and voila, shower outfit complete!

Next up, the Ivy Paperbag Tie Waist Shorts in navy. These may just be one of my absolute favorite bottoms in the collection. This is the perfect shade of navy and can be paired with every style of top in our collection. They have a comfortable 4-inch inseam, ruffle paperbag waist, tie front, sewn cuff and come in a variety of the cutest colors! I would size up if in between on these as I’m wearing in small!

Memorial Day BBQ: Between Memorial Day and the 4th of July there are plenty of opportunities for backyard BBQs with friends and family! The Poppy Puff Shoulder Tee in mint pairs perfectly with the Ivy Paperbag Tie Waist Shorts and creates a nautical, festive look! Top it off with a pair of sandals or wedges and the only thing you have left to worry about is if you want a hot dog or hamburger [hint: choose both].

Beach Vacation: Headed somewhere warm soon? Take the Willow Tiered Peplum Top  with you. This top tucks perfectly into these shorts and creates such a breezy and fun look for dinners by the ocean! A flat pair of sandals and open bamboo bag makes it the perfect easy summer look!

Night Out With The Girls: Create the look of a romper while having the ability to pee with ease 😉 This Tulip Split Neck Top is perfect in navy with the Ivy Paperbag Tie Waist Shorts. They are the same fabric which creates a beautiful cohesive look! To spice it up add a pair of statement heels and you’re ready to roll!

Bridal Shower: Let’s not forget about the showers for the brides to be! If you’re headed to a shower soon and want to look like you’re dressed up enough without going overboard, this outfit is the perfect option! I am loving the watercolor floral print of the Savannah Scalloped V-Neck Tank  with these navy shorts oh so much!

Last but not least, our Wide Leg Crop Pants, aka the pants you’ll never want to take off once you put on. These are made of a thick [but not hot] ponte material that is absolutely my favorite fabric I’ve ever come into contact with. We are bringing you the black color as you can dress them up and dress them down just as easily. I do find these true to size and am wearing in XS!

Spring Wedding: Pants to a wedding? You better believe it sister. Switch things up a little and rock these Wide Leg Crop Pants with our Savannah Scalloped V-Neck Tank and you’ll be dancing the night away in comfort.

Sideline Saturday’s: Do you have a kiddo [or four] who are wrapped up every weekend in sporting events? Good news: these pants are here for you. Nobody said you can’t wear these with tennies and a denim jacket for a much more casual look!

Date Night: There is nothing more chic [and flattering] than black on black. By taking our Savannah Scalloped V-Neck Tank and pairing it with these Wide Leg Crop Pants you have one sexy little look. Added bonus: the elastic waistband means you can have your cake and eat it too. We’ll cheers to that!

For the Office: Anytime you can wear a pair of pants that feel like pajamas to the workplace, DO IT. By pairing these pants with our Poppy Puff Shoulder Tee and ankle strap heels you have an office friendly outfit that will have your cubicle mates envious by your strong style sense.

For your Pinning pleasure…
