I Got Spring Fever!
Hi <<First Name>>,
Well it is April and Saturday’s weather was just what I needed to say, “enough with the fur, wool, down coats and other winter clothing. I am ready to break out my spring wardrobe”.
What are the new trends out there?
It is up to me as your style resource to fill you in. And for those that have been with me for a while, you know I always say that “trends are suggestions and not mandates”.
I supply the information, you make the decisions. How does that sound?
FABRICS & THEMES
The new hottest theme for spring is utility. This includes tops and bottoms with various cargo pockets, as well as straps, tabs and belts. The boiler suit is the newest jumpsuit. Leather is all over the place for spring, both in traditional neutrals and more spring-like colors. Crochet and netting are used in dresses, tops and dusters. Arts & crafty clothing continue the boho vibe. Feathers and fringe are still popular adornments. Re-worked versions of denim continue with patchwork, fraying, new washes and more.
Easily wearable pieces include pleated skirts, cardigans and paper-bag waist pants. After all this athleisiure (which is still strong), there is a return to more structured suiting and sophistication. However, the bike short is back. Joggers and baggy denim are some of the new casual looks. As always, trenches show up for spring. Tech-y fabrics like parachute materials are the new casual versions of light weight outerwear.
