HOT or NOT?

I can't wait because in early March we'll be showing the first of our spring teasers via ShopMapel.com. Look forward to light weight cotton dress that can be dressed up or worn casual. You'll also see our new petite jeans (thanks for all your feedback last week) and much more.

This week I want to order a few more teasers for mid march arrival- and I need your help.
Once again I want to open the forum for your feedback. Are the below styles HOT or NOT?



The boyfriend blazer. It's oversized, the sleeves are intended to be rolled up with an interesting lining detail. It's loose, it's casual and has a boxy fit. Are you wearing it this year?  HOT or NOT?




Floral Influenced Dress
This little number is already in the bag- but none the less I would love to hear what you want in a dress this spring/summer. There seems to be a push for prints (specifically non descript florals) and bold colors. I love this little sweetie. It's feminine, fresh and can be perfectly paired with a cardi and flats or worn super sezy with some killer stilhettoes. HOT or NOT?










Spring Transitional Coat
It's not quite warm enough to ditch the outerpinning- but I am So Done with my puffer and wool coats. We want to bring in a lightweight and comfortabel spring coat. This little number has interesting detail with the offset double breasted buttons, hidden placket and gathered sleeves. I'm also kinda obsessed with peter pan collars. Are you ready for a spring coat? or are you skipping it altogether and jumping into spring with a lightweight cardi?  HOT or NOT?





Jodpur/Cuffed/Boyfriend Pants
Are you wearing these? ARE YOU? I am so torn about these pants. I think they are cute in looks books and magazines- but are the rest of us wearing this look? It kinda reminds me of grade school when I worked so hard to cuff my pants as tight as possible (but I also paired them with 2 diff colored socks on each foot). HOT or NOT?





Lightweight Elongated Cardi.
I love cardigans. Always have- always will. I so love the idea of a super lightweight (almost see through) summer cardigan with an extended length and real loose body. I think it pairs perfectly with any dress (structured or casual) and goes well with jeans and sandals or shorts. Some women prefer more shaping- but if your underpinnings have shape the cardigan is the perfect pairing. HOT or NOT?

I like the cardi and the lightweight coat - almost like the floral dress but the top on that one is not good for peeps with broad shoulders. Thanks for the sneak peeks!!
