Spring is a week away and with it comes spring fashion! I love this time of year when we get to shed layers and change up the colors and cuts from what we’ve been wearing for months! Let’s take a look at upcoming trends to get excited about this spring.
While “Picnic Chic” sounds far from chic, look at these flawless pieces designers came up with to keep up with the trend. It is this kind of brilliance that lures me in to the world of fashion. Taking something seemingly forgettable and turning it in to a must-have. One of Michael Kors‘ looks was one of my favorites! Loose, breathable, and perfect for the spring months. The cut is one that anyone could pull off! Cute for those casual outings you find yourself in this spring. Diane von Furstenberg had one of my other favorite looks. Diane’s is more put together and definitely more tailored. I love the sixties vibe this outfit has. I believe this is the epitome of “picnic chic.”
Kimono inspired looks are another trend that sound like they wouldn’t work, but they do in so many spectacular ways. The lengthening effect a kimono has and the way the waist is emphasized makes for beautiful pieces. The Row is the perfect example. Despite the layers of fabric, the waist is highlighted beautifully and feels very put together as opposed to bulky. 3.1 Phillip Lim’s design is more feminine and uses a lot less fabric, but you still see the waist-cinching and have the general kimono feel. If we see more of this in our spring fashion choices, I wouldn’t mind a bit!
The seventies are back! Well, in fashion anyway. Where the sixties were definitely in for fall/winter, the seventies are making a comeback for spring. While the looks themselves have a seventies air about them, we also feel the time period through designers use of suede. That’s right people, suede! We saw a lot of restrictive leather in the fall/winter looks, and it seems designers are taking a break from that trend, and breathing life (and comfortability) into suede! Derek Lam created a two piece ensemble that taps on that seventies feel with the deep pockets and, of course, the use of suede. Even the exaggerated threading on the pieces feels reminiscent seventies.Tommy Hilfiger’s design wasn’t discreet about being seventies inspired. The cut is seventies, the look is seventies, even the model looks straight out of the seventies!
That is is for Part 1 of spring trends! Any of these looks you can’t wait to try? Any you’re not in to? Let us know
