It’s official! On Monday, March 20, we gave a warm welcome to the first day of spring. The days are longer, the sun is brighter and with a new season come new trends. Here are the ones you’ll want to see in full bloom.
1 | THE HARD SHOULDER
The power jacket ruled the runway. Architectural shoulders are a symbol of strength for women. This is fashion’s lean-in moment
2 | SPORT LUXE
Wave goodbye to Athleisure and hello to Sportluxe. Fashionistas are wearing athletic separates for a cooler, more stylish daytime look. Trade in your loose yoga pants in for a more body-conscious fit.
3 | THE BATHROBE TRENCH
The classic coat gets a contemporary update. This re-imagined trench provides a deconstructed yet polished look with edge.
4 | PRETTY IN PINK
Pink is taking over the fashion world and it can be shocking. Whether soft or bold, the feminine hue is the color of the moment.
5 | STRIPED SHIRTING
Get ready to see fashion’s favorite print with a twist. The must-have pattern can be found in amazing sizes and colors, even asymmetrical cuts.
6 | COLORFUL SLIDES
Step out this spring with pair of bold mules for day or night. This comfort minded slide is a breath of fresh air.
7 | STATEMENT EARRINGS
Size matters. Especially when it comes to our favorite fashion accessory. Pair them with anything from denim to cocktail attire.
8 | SPLIT SLEEVES
There is a continued emphasis on sleeves for spring. Dramatic with volume, split- sleeves appeal to women of all ages.
