Pretty Pastels:

A rainbow of soft springtime shades reigned throughout the collections; from minty -green board – shorts-suit to a sexy-CEO lilac dress to sporty baby blue bombers. The best thing about the pastel trend is that you can pick your most-flattering colour and wear it with whatever silhouette flatters you.

Boxy, Cropped Jackets:

Your fall wardrobe-staple moto jacket will still serve you well in the spring. The boxy, cropped silhouette can come in a plethora of prints and textures. To cut short, this trend comes in all different colours and patterns so you’ll be able to find one that is perfect for you! They also go with everything in your closet too! A good jacket can be paired with your favourite jeans, skirt, or dress.

Contrast-Collar Button-Downs:

The crisp, menswear-inspired dress shirt enjoys a makeover with inventively cool, contrasting color and/or textured collars and cuffs. This elevated wardrobe essential is perfect for sneakily kicking up your work outfit.

Wide-Leg Trousers:

Easy to wear and ultra-chic, billowy wide-leg trousers made a huge showing on the spring runways. Wide-legs now are longer and leaner, with a clean, hip-slimming waistline and legs that flare just enough to disguise the thighs while creating the illusion of a nipped-in middle.

Cool Bomber Jackets :

This sporty layering piece gets a new lease on life with adventurously colorful prints for spring. Like its cousin the moto jacket, the bomber is ultra versatile to temper the girliness of a dress. Pair it with your feminine looks such as a flowy dress or dress it down with chic sporty denim.

Tea-Length Skirts:

Elegant, romantic and oh so ladylike, tea length skirts instantly conjures up visions of vintage Vogue covers.
Not quite a midi, not quite a maxi… the tea-length lands just at the shin. While the midi skirt may be the ultimate transition piece, the tea-length—between midi and maxi—is for spring. The lady-like hemline can be just as modern as a mini.

Sweater Dressing:

Along with the not-going-anywhere crop top, spring knits make for next season’s staple separate. Whether it’s boldly printed or inventively cut, the seasonal sweater is an easy-chic piece to pair with tailored pants, flirty skirts, and blousy shorts—or to just throw on over a light dress.

The Shift Blouse:

It’s like a dressy version of a T- shirt; the shift blouse is easy, but so much more sophisticated! The near-elbow-length sleeve and boxy silhouette keep the look flattering and versatile.
Have some fun with extra details, like exciting prints, luxurious textures, and varying necklines.

And that’s a wrap!
