Designers and consumers alike adore spring for much the same reasons: bright colors, light, feminine fabrics, and chic accessories. This season’s trends hit every price range, so budget‐conscious fashionistas can either add an exciting splash or accen t to their current wardrobe, or invest in a couple, gorgeous staple pieces to stay effortlessly chic through the warmer months.
Those hugely popular Missioni pieces featured at Target have sold out faster than the demise of Kim Kardashian’s marriage, but don’t worry. The Spanish designer house’s signature chevron and zig‐zag prints are sprouting up in department stores like Nordstrom, Bebe, and Madewell. You can find the iconic patterns adorning flowy scarves, long, ribbed skirts, and dresses alike.
You’ll find that neon is back with a chic vengeance. Unlike the early 1990s neon trend where the effect was more garish, the latest neon trends seem to venture in two routes. Runway shows during this winter’s Fashion Week focused on sleek neon separates. Graphic floral prints are also slated to be a big hit. Designers like Prabal Garung, Cynthia Rowley, and Lela Rose showcased a bold variety of floral prints that ranged from light, Impressionist strokes to more strikingly contrasted shapes.
Don’t forget to bring out the playful touches this spring. Bow ties are back in their classic form in a variety of sizes and bright hues. Pull together a cardigan‐shirt look with a bow‐tie necklace from British clothier, ASOS, or fix a fun, bow tie pin to your coat for instant whimsy and style.
New shoes this spring include strappy wedge and flat sandals. Opt for a neutral tone to pair with your more vibrant dresses and clothes this spring and summer.
Whatever your style, you can seamlessly incorporate some of the youthful, fun, and vibrant new fashion trends into you wardrobe. Launch into the warmer months in fine form.
