What’s HOT for Spring? The Top 10 Spring Season Staples are revealed below with my recommendations across price points. Find many selections of these top choices at the Shopbop Sale through Monday, March 9th.
#1 Modern Trench
My thoughts on the trend: I have several modern trenches from past seasons. I don’t see anything so different about this season’s offerings. However, a trench and a trench with a twist are super additions to your spring coat collection if you don’t have them. You will reach for them again and again throughout the years.
#2 Statement Skirt
My thoughts on the trend: You can never have enough skirts in various lengths, especially for spring. This year midis and maxis seem to be reigning supreme. However, a statement skirt is a wonderful addition at any time of the year, it’s a skirt with that little extra. For the spring season, you can pair your statement skirt with statement sneakers, cowboy boots, combat boots or lovely sandals.
#3 Silver Jewelry
My thoughts on the trend: This spring season’s metal color of choice is silver and decidedly delicate.
#4 Tall Boots
My thoughts on the trend: Spring’s tall boots aren’t really that different from tall boots from past seasons. You will definitely see more block heels than past seasons. Animal prints continue to appear everywhere in all footwear fashion.
#5 Cinched Belt
My thoughts on the trend: I feeling the early 90s in these belt looks. You might still have some of these hanging around and, if they still fit, you can bust them out, and put them to good use again. Cinch your blazers and dresses.
#6 Tailored Trousers
My thoughts on the trend: Trousers are definitely a “must have” item for spring, particularly as part of a suit look. Higher waists continue to be the look of choice.
#7 High-Volume Dress
High-Volume Dresses: This Look
My thoughts on the trend: This dress shape is REALLY NOT my favorite. My body type (and most peoples’ shapes I dare say), does not lend itself to this look. Not the most flattering for many, but certainly comfortable.
#8 Poplin Top
My thoughts on the trend: A nice crisp poplin, in any style of top, seems to be the preferred fabric and tailored look for this spring. You can find them at every price point.
#9 Sharp Suiting
My thoughts on the trend: Once again the late 80s and 90s are back. Think “Pant Suits” but with a sharp tailored twist…and they are everywhere at all price points.
#10 Shoulder Bag
My thoughts on the trend: I had a purse like the large one pictured above back in 8th grade (1974….). I guess the shape is back again this year, in a slimmer sleeker design. Almost any shape works, just make sure you can sling the bag over your shoulder.
