Spring from the Runway

This season, what you wear is about mood-driven style. The hashtag #ootd (outfit of the day) is trending with influencers on social media; they choose their complete look based on how they feel. Is it romantic? Bohemian? Comfortable? Pick your colors—anything from bold neons to pastels and neutrals—and ask yourself, “What mood am I in?”

yellow
It’s a sunny day for suiting. Tailored jackets don’t have to be black. Still think it’s not for you? Find a print or other solid color to pair with yellow … and remember to change your lipstick

feathers
Don’t be afraid to spread your wings and flaunt feathers on a dress or wrap. If you’re hesitant, wear this trend on a pair of shoes or handbag. It can be glamorous or whimsical—you decide.

utility dressing
Functional clothing with pockets is fun to wear, and neutrals are subtle and powerful at the same time. Check out cargo pants and safari jackets in this category.

polka dots
Polka dots are having their moment. Black and white are the most common colors, but why not try other color combinations? A wrap dress and ruffled top are easy items to wear with this trend.

neon brights 
Be bold. If you don’t want to do it all over, find one item to wear in a big (outerwear) or small (accessory) way.

shoes
Every heel height is available, and it’s all about the details. In a romantic mood? Look for fringe or feathered accents on footwear.
