Everything old is new again. Do you long for the familiar flutter of a hemline right to left as you walk down the sidewalk? Are you especially inspired by the eighties hair? The seventies makeup? Well, as luck would have it, some of your old favorites are the hottest trends in the fashion spotlight right now. Don’t fear shopping in your closet, even in the way back and give that tried and true favorite a fresh new twist with a flashy accessory or a fierce pair of heals.
Is this a time warp into the 70’s? Close, but not exactly. Embrace your inner love-child and check out the faded flair jean, which is currently considered a spring staple. So do your denim right with a lighter wash, a high waist and pair with a classic white T-shirt and some funky fresh sandals. Looking for some office flare? Choose a dark color, a classic belt and a button down.
Call it a cape or a poncho but this cyclical style updater comes around every few years. True, not everyone can pull it off, but you should at least give it a try. This seasons ponchos are bright, breezy and can practically pack down into a clutch, perfect for that evening concert or a swim suit cover up.
It’s difficult to pinpoint just when fringe swung into mainstream, but is is clear that since frontier times, this has been a favorite embellishment. If it wasn’t before, fringe is your new friend. Keep in mind that a little fringe packs a big punch. Stick to a neutral bag or jacket and leave it at that. Fringe becomes understatedly killer on a sandal, especially a gladiator, flat sling back or a spike heel.
Plaid has withstood the test of time, and this year it wins the prize for most versatile! We saw a lot of plaid this winter but with lighter colors and fabrics, this look takes you into the dog days of summer. Punch up a pastel plaid with pearls and see that shirt soar out of the baseball park and into the board room.
Not just for feisty toddlers anymore. Rompers are all grown up and making a splash at weddings, baby showers, and outdoor events. In sophisticated silk fabrics with lace trimmings and elegant details there is a romper in every style for every occasion. Pull off this look with a nude shoe and a bold lip.
Spring fashion is all about fun. Play around with style, color, texture and hemline. Look to the past for inspiration and try and recreate your favorites. You will be spot-on!
