On Our Radar: Spring Trends
Pufffed sleeves, leopard, matching sets, tie dye and florals are taking over this season
by Ashley Allen
These favorite spring trends can be worked into your wardrobe seamlessly. Whether it’s a pop of leopard alongside a black dress or a neon pump with an all-white ensemble, we have the local boutiques and department stores with all the goods.
Puffed sleeves are elegant, feminine and fashion forward. Don’t be scared and make sure your closet plays hosts to a puff or two. This floral blouse from ByGeorge has the perfect shoulder for pairing with black skinny jeans and a strappy heel. For a dress option, try this bold number from Wildflower Boutique which also happens to tie in some neon.
Animal print is leading the pack and leopard is practically a neutral these days. We love mixing leopard and floral for the right kind of pattern play. These leopard pants spotted (pun intended) at Estilo can be worn with a simple white tank or even a floral blouse. If you want to ease into this trend, try a leopard flat or sandal from Nordstrom.
Tie Dye is back and better than ever. This psychedelic trend consumed the runways at New York Fashion Week and is now shoppable all around town. We are loving this relaxed and elevated piece from Beehive. It’s affordable, comfortable and very cute. Perfect for a BBQ or casual dinner party. For a fun, chic tie dye look try this Tanya Taylor dress at Neiman Marcus. Pair with a black stappy heel and clutch and you have a nice look for an evening weekend. The tassels are to die for.
Florals…we know, how groundbreaking. Hear us out, they’re on our radar for spring and we couldn’t be happier. This dainty, feminine trend is classic and cheery yet can also be edgy when paired with a leather. Francesca’s Collections has quite a few floral options and this dress is perfect for brunch or the impending wedding season. For a fun floral accessory, check out these stackable floral rings by Banana Republic.
