If you read enough glossy magazines you’ll feel like you need to toss your spring wardrobe to make room for all the new “essential” styles. Truly stylish and fashionable women know how to reinvent what they already own to reflect the changing times. Cherry-picking the best trends of the season will leave you looking effortlessly cool.
Crochet - Crochet vests are big this spring. This romantic look is best displayed with layers. Pair a crochet vest over a sunny, spring-colored t-shirt and pair with shorts or layer over a floral dress to really be on trend.
Prints - You can’t hide from prints this year -- take your pick! From bold florals to bold geometric prints, just about every designer showed memorable prints on the spring runways. Opt for a wrap dress or tunic top when wearing this trend.
Shorts Instead of Skirts - Time to hit the track, shorts are H-O-T this spring. While plenty of brands are showing short shorts, we’re happy to report mid-thigh length options are available. Consider adding a tailored short instead of a skirt to your spring wardrobe.
Add Accessories in Key Colors - If color scares you a bit (hey, we understand New Yorkers live and breathe black), don’t abandon your basics. Instead, rely on pops of color to show you are trend savvy. Tangerine, bold yellow and cobalt blue are the best bets.
Colored Denim - Creating a trendy look of the season--color blocking--is easy with a great pair of colored jeans. Find a pair in a bold, ”look at me” color and then search out tops in your closet that can create a fresh unexpected color combination.
