SPRING TRENDS WE ARE LOVING

Monday, March 5th, 2012

We picked out a few of our go-to trends for this Spring.  Strut the streets in these and you’re sure to be looking stand-out fab this season.

COLOR BLOCKING

It seems like all the designers are gravitating towards this effortlessly chic style again and again.  Made by pairing bright, bold colors that are sewn together to make one fabulously dramatic piece.   Don’t be afraid to throw in a little neon or pastel to mix it up this season!  You can also style the trend yourself by pairing two (or more) solid colored garments together and voilà!  To pump it up even more mix in different colored accessories (shoe, handbag, belt, or jewelry)!  Don’t forget to get yourself a pair of colored jeans….or maybe a couple of pairs!!!  Have fun with it!

 

 ANORAKS

This style of coat is often spoken of  interchangably with the parka jacket. Stylistically speaking, anoraks have cuffs on the sleeves and a distinctive waist, which cinches in the mid-section for an oh so flattering look!  This waterproof jacket will not only keep your hair dry with it’s hood, but will highlight everyone’s feminine curves. It seems that many designers have created an updated version of the traditional anorak for those spring showers or just to throw on and run around in.  One of our all time favs pictured below by Ali Ro…it comes in a variety of colors.   We stock them in black and khaki.  Call us if you would like to RESERVE ONE….we have a shipment arriving soon!  These  jackets truly fly off the racks year round…they make every outfit look oh so chic.  I have one in black and I can throw it on over anything and it totally transforms my look!  People stop me all the time asking me where I got my jacket.  I must say that seeing the model pictured below makes me want the navy too!

BOLD PRINTS

Diane Von Furstenberg is the queen of bold prints and other designers have been taking notice. Meadow’s racks are filled with bright colored frocks with stand out prints.  A bold print can be easily paired with denim or any neutral for a quick, fresh outfit or stand alone on a dress. 

ORANGES/TANGERINES

Tangerine is the color for Spring! Whether on a blouse or an accessory, we will be seeing this bright hue all over the streets.  Update your wardrobe with a pop of color! 

PASTELS

Not only are brights as popular as ever, but designers are mixing in more pastel hues this spring to mix it up. Designers are modernizing the pastel by infusing them in prints and updated silhouettes bringing the rather dated pastel from zero to hero! An updated pastel is not just for Easter this year!
