1. Sheer Panels and Cutouts
Transparency popped up as sheer panels and cutouts with looks that ran the gamut from sporty to dressy. Transparency added an edge to Lucite soles and transparent straps on sandals as well as handbags.
2. Black and White
High contrast in stripes, polka dots, color blocking, and graphics highlight the dramatic appeal of black and white. The combination seems fresh for spring and an antidote to the riot of colors and prints.
3. Colored Lace
Far from demure, colored lace is a strong fashion statement for spring. Some dresses featured the ornateness of guipere lace, while others were more delicate and flowing.
4. Kimono wrap jacket
The ease of a kimono wrap jacket inspired various crossover styles, evocative of the east.
5. Skinny Jeans with Prints and Patterns
A carryover from last spring, prints on skinny jeans inject some pattern and color to your denim collection, with some jeans dressy enough for an evening out.
6. Blues in all hues
Color is always a welcome sign of spring and this season, blues in hues from aqua to deep cobalt and navy abound.
7. Patterned Trousers
The fit is easy as well as tailored and the prints myriad in patterned trousers, another carryover from past seasons.
8. Stack heeled sandals
With a bit of 60’ s appeal, the stack heeled sandal with a strap is an updated and comfortable alternative to platforms and wedges.
Ruffles meander across collarbones and limbs and become more sculptural than frilly, while some peplums become ruffles.
10. Sleeveless blazer
Dressier than a cardigan but less formal than a jacket, the sleeveless blazer is a perfect finishing piece for many a spring outfit.
Enjoy carryovers from past seasons, such as printed jeans, peplums, and the color orange, which has practically become a neutral. Denim is always strong, with the revival of distressed jeans and denim jackets. Have fun with so many choices for the new spring season.
