Ask The Trend: Hot Spring Nail Colors and the Perfect Pair of Leggings

Nail Colors cvs.com, nordstrom.com, aveyou.com, shoplvx.com

What are the hot nail colors right now? I'm dying for a fresh manicure, and want to pick a shade that screams spring. —Nichole via Twitter

It's time to lighten up! If the Oscars red carpet were any indication, the newest nail colors are pale, pretty and actually quite subdued.

Spring trends we're excited about: pale nails

You can't go wrong with airy pink shades or neutral peach-flecked polishes with a bit of shimmer this season.

For a bit more fun, we're loving sherbert shades like lavender, powder blue and mint green; and for a knockout nail look, go bold with a punchy orange shade like Lancöme's Peach Melodie gloss polish.

Among our favorites: Fiver by Butter London, Salma Hayek's Nuance nail lacquers in Bare Kiss and Blush Peony, vegan luxury brand LVX in Callais and Essie in Bond With Whomever.

My favorite pair of leggings tend to stretch out after a few months. What's the best brand for a solid pair? —Emma via Twitter

Glad you asked! When it comes to leggings, my styling secret is to pick a sturdy pair of workout tights to wear as street wear.

Yep, forget the basic generic pair of leggings found at any boutique; head to the active wear section for a much more useful investment.

Not only are workout leggings far more durable (read: no see-through surprises!), but most have special compression capabilities so every angle of your bottom half is in tip-top shape. Who doesn't love that?

Workout leggings will definitely hold their shape no matter how many times you wash and wear; and promise a smooth, sleek silhouette! My picks include Victoria's Secret VSX Sport knockout tights, GapFit gFast leggings, SPANX compression leggings and UnderArmour Quattro leggings.

What color is trending right now? —Juliana via Twitter 

Black and white is taking Hollywood celebs by storm! Everywhere we look, there's another stylish star clad in the classic color combination. From edgy stripes (like Miley Cyrus) to mod-inspired designer frocks (as seen on Nicole Richie), this bold trend works in countless ways, no matter your personal style. It's easy to mix and match and looks flawless for any occasion.

Best of all, a pop of color, whether it's in the form of a bright red lipstick or powerful pump (ah-hem, Olivia Wilde!) adds a sassy touch that feels modern and fresh this season.
