Get Set For Spring
Saks Fifth Avenue recently published a must-have list for Spring fashion, and among the most compelling trends is the emergence of super-saturated color. Saks describes hues as “over-brimming with pigment” -- so much so that admirers may need to squint to avoid optical overload.
There’s also an abundance of realistic floral and botanical prints. Unlike the more abstract florals seen last spring, these newest iterations are “crisply drawn, vibrantly colored and digitally enhanced.” Look for a variety of laces -- from light and sheer types to heavier fabrics -- to be worn for daytime, nighttime and every hour in between. Here again color is key, from soft muted tones through the brightest of brights.
What are some other trends shoppers can anticipate this spring? Look for a return to tailoring, with more and more designers showcasing what Saks dubs “the enlightened suit.” It could be a sleeveless jacket paired with slim pants or a blazer worn with a pair of shorts. Also on tap: frayed, bleached or distressed denim, and an abundance of shorts.
The season’s most sought-after handbag silhouette is “small but powerful,” featuring highly detailed versions of classic shapes. Footwear will take its cue from the Romans with gladiator sandals reimagined in “seductive new styles.”
