Spring Fashion Preview 2017
Winter is nearly over, the sun is out, the temperatures are rising, and you know what that means...it's almost time to bring out your spring wardrobe! While we'll always love the tried-and-true spring classics like floral prints and pastels, there's few new trends to try in 2017 that we think you'll love.
Florals are a springtime classic, but this year's version is decidedly contemporary, with bolder colors and painterly, almost abstract prints. We especially love this print from Loft that features rosy pink blooms over a navy and white geometric pattern.
Ann Taylor Loft, $39.50.
The trend towards vivid, painterly florals most definitely extends to the bottom half of the wardrobe. In fact, a pair of bold floral pants might be the best thing to pick up if you want to be totally on-trend right now. We're fans of the wide leg look shown, but skinny cropped versions can be fabulous as well.
White House Black Market, $99.00.
Lace-up everything is huge for spring, and this sweatshirt might be the ideal casual way to rock the trend.
The off-the-shoulder and cold-shoulder styles aren't going away anytime soon, but we're seeing some excellent variations on the trend for warmer weather, like this feminine satin top that combines strappiness and ruffles in a flattering shade of blue.
LC Lauren Conrad at Kohls, $30.00
Open Shoulders, Part II
If you love the spaghetti straps + open shoulder trend but want something with a little more structure or color, this version from Anthropologie fits the bill.
Paper Crown, Anthropologie, $88.00
Floral + Open Shoulders
The romance of the off-the-shoulder silhouette paired with the of-the-moment florals means that this top might be the best thing you buy all season.
Ruffles are major for spring and summer, and this year's version isn't for wallflowers. Bold and almost sculptural, styles like this little black dress (which also comes in crimson, coral, cobalt, sky blue, and deep green) definitely make a statement.
Charles Henry at Nordstrom, $88.00
Bright florals on a dark background might be the hottest print for spring, and it's even better if they are embroidered like the ones on this black button down from Zara.
Backpacks Aren't Just For Kids Anymore
Skip the handbag and go for something that's easier on your back - and leaves you hands-free! Practical and stylish, this spring's backpacks are light years more fashionable than the canvas ones that kids carry.
See by Chloé, Nordstorm, $525.00
A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Military
All those florals and ruffles are best served topped off with something that has a tougher edge, so a military-esque anorak done in khaki or olive like this one from Old Navy might be the perfect thing.
Old Navy, $42.00
Mules Or Slides
The hottest shoe styles for spring are both 90s throwbacks - and if you wore mules or slides then, you might remember just how comfortable they are! These are by Stuart Weitzman and are admittedly a bit pricey (we couldn't resist including such perfection), however, there are variations on this style at all price points.
Bloomingdale's, Stuart Weitzman, $455.00
