The new denim jacket
Question: “Ideas to wear with your jean jacket? Jean on jean?”- submitted by @Greekgirl7
Answer: While you can definitely wear denim on denim, a jean jacket can also be the perfect way to add a casual twist to just about any outfit. Vazquez particularly likes the idea of a white denim jacket as we head into summer. Pair it with colored pants and a bold blouse for sophisticated look.

Off-the-shoulder styles for everybody (and every body)
Question: "The off-the-shoulder trend ... I love it, but how about tips to make it work for ladies with larger chests?" - sent in by Melissa Stephens
Answer: Anyone can wear the off-the-shoulder trend. It's just about finding the right style for you. For women with larger busts, Vazquez suggests going for a top or dress that still has straps. The V-shape of the straps will be incredibly flattering and still provide support. You'll be rocking the hottest trend while feeling comfortable. Now that's a win-win!

Florals? For spring? Try something new
Question: "What prints are in style for spring?" - sent in by Alissa Anderson
Answer: While florals are definitely still hot, gingham is also back in a big way. This season, you don't have to go for the traditional gingham oxford shirt or dress to sport the print. Vazquez loves the idea of a gingham wrap skirt. Wear it with your favorite printed T-shirt and some comfy slide sandals for a casual-chic look.
