Thanks to a string of cameos in Who What Wear stories, Aimee Song of the beloved blog Song of Style is somewhat of a celebrity around our offices. The Los Angeles native’s affinity for bright colours, bold prints, and modern silhouettes has garnered her a massive following, not to mention made her a reader favourite month after month. So when she agreed to spend the day with us in our fashion closet, the excitement was all ours. We spent the day talking to Song about taking sartorial risks, her rules for accessorizing, and more. Keep reading to learn more about what excites the beauty this spring, and shop her looks.

“I love the juxtaposition of the feminine lace crop top and skirt with the sporty Adidas floral jacket.”
“I've always loved wearing crop tops. Thankfully, there are so many high-waisted bottoms you can pair with them to create the illusion of a slimmer waist, even if your abs are not ready!”
“Accessorizing definitely finishes up a look.”

“I've loved this neoprene Tommy Hilfiger skirt ever since I saw it come down the runway!”
“It's all about proportions when it comes to stacking. Layering dainty necklaces looks better than piling on too many statement necklaces, or if you'd rather go with a statement necklace, wear simple earrings.”
“I liked putting my own personality into this look by pairing it with the vest and backpack."
“I love mixing and matching styles.”

“I'm a fan of mini skirts, and the colourful pleats caught my eye. I wanted to wear the coral skirt with a similar toned jacket, but chose one with texture, so it adds an interesting element.”
“I really liked the Versace purse that doubled as a mirror!”
"I'm excited to continue with the sporty trend and metallic/mirrored trend this season, as well as the take on pastels."
