Spring has sprung in the fashion world, and hopefully the weather will follow suit! If you don’t yet have a fashion forecast for the new season, now is a good time to explore your closet and see what’s hanging, what’s folded, what can stay and what needs to go. This spring, you’ll see some trends from days gone by and some that offer a new twist on an old look. Have fun revisiting your fashion memories, and decide what you’re willing to embrace. Below are a few noteworthy trends straight from the runway.

trench coat 
Hands down, this is the must-have coat for spring. Wrap yourself in your favorite color, and choose from unique features like wax-coated fabric and menswear-inspired trims. Pair over a dress or with any length pant.

mixed prints

Don’t be afraid to experiment and mix your favorite prints. Circles and stripes are easy to wear together! Still not sure? Incorporate a printed scarf into your outfit, or try mixing stripes and stars for a diplomatic approach with solid accessories.

full skirt 

Waist not, want not. A full skirt is feminine, especially in a flowy fabric. If it has a print, wear with a solid top.

cinched-waist pants

These may be a bit exaggerated, but they give the impression that your legs are infinitely long. The key is to wear a form-fitting top to pair well with the pant’s dramatic silhouette.

dark denim

Denim—plain, embroidered or encrusted—is haute for spring, from casual to evening attire. It’s the best go-to in your closet!

big tote

Size up your handbag. The tote is bigger and better and serves a utilitarian purpose for carrying all you need. Now, there is no need to leave home without your favorite beauty products and a transition piece to take you from day to evening.


Sneakers are still in the running for making a fashion statement. Never underestimate the traction you can get
when your feet are cushioned and level.


Florals abound in an array of bouquets. Dresses in the print are pretty and ladylike, or just wear solo on a top.

pantone color of the year
Ultra Violet #18-3838: This blue-based purple (aka lavender) reigns and makes you feel like royalty. Not comfortable wearing it as a dominant color? Find an underpinning, scarf, jewelry or handbag, or wear it as nail polish.
