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.
