Spring has finally sprung in most of the country; time to peel off the heavy layers and defrost our look.  We saw some killer looks for Spring 2016 on the runway and in the top fashion mags—here are some easy, wearable looks that will keep you right on trend without breaking the bank.

 

The Cold Shoulder

We’re seeing a lot of cool, off the shoulder looks this season.  It’s a subtle way to show a little skin all while creating major interest in a piece that instantly wows.

All White Everything

White is a big color this season from head to toe.  We’re seeing a total revamp of the basic white shirt; textiles and designs that make it current and closet-worthy.

And “Damn, Daniel!” wasn’t wrong either!  He most definitely is ‘back at it again with the white Vans”… and you can be too!  White sneakers – especially white throwback sneakers and slip-on sneakers, are having a moment this season.

#TBT Sneaks

Speaking of all white sneakers, throwbacks are making a huge comeback for spring/summer 2016. Sneakers and slip-ons haven’t left the fashion scene; they just keep getting better.  It’s back to basics with the styles we lived for in the 90’s and the top brands are all over this—and nailing it! Not to mention, our feet have been comfortable for about 3 seasons straight now—we SO want this to keep going!

Mixed Media

A total mash-up of fabrics, textiles, and textures has entered the mix.   It’s not just leather and lace, it’s unique blends and creative looks that guarantee to stun.  Add interesting hemlines, ruffles, and/or stripes to the mix and you’ve hit the trifecta.

Come Suede with Me

Suede is another hot look for spring 2016.  Whether done in a slinky dress or a cool top, It’s one way to add texture to your wardrobe.  Find suede, or faux suede pieces done in a simple way that stretch your closet—wearable, mixable, and flattering.

The Little Slinky Dress

This will become your go-to this season for a dressed up look or even a basic layering piece.  It skims the body so delicately, making it figure flattering and creating a beautiful neckline that will elongate the body.  Wear it as is with a cute sandal, or make it casual with a retro sneaker, OR throw a chambray shirt or denim jacket over for a daytime vibe.
