Spring Trends You Need to Know About

Denim Hair, Oil Slick Hair, and Peacock Hair

Originally called, “Mermaid Hair” the wild hair craze has taken off and becomes more complex each season. We absolutely love the Denim trend which you can do in all shades, of varying intensity. We caution you not to try these trends at home, and warn you that it will cost you to have a skilled colorist achieve these looks. You will ante up for them, and they won’t last long. These rich colors last for about a month before fading to pastels and then back to blonde.

The Slip Dress

We can’t believe it, but the slip dress is back, circa the early 2000s. This is a hard look to pull off because the fabric tends to show every lump and bump. So, if you aren’t a Spanx girl, you may want to skip this one. But, if you dare, the look is being done as a casual look, topped with athletic accessories. Soft fabrics are mixed with leather bags, strong hoop earrings, and even sneakers on some looks.

Brightly Colored Suede

Spring and suede? Yes. Creative ways to do suede appeared all over the runway this year. Mix and match fabrics, colors, and styles. It all works. Suede is substantial enough for cool Spring weather but works when you can shed your turquoise wrap coat once it warms up. Short skirts, shorts, and mini dresses complete the look.

If you thought the fashion pack was done with its '70s-inspiration love affair, you'd be wrong. Jonathan Saunders, Alberta Ferretti, Rebecca Minkoff, and Olivier Rouesteing all sent pieces made of suede down the runway, one of the decade's most-loved fabrics.

Victorian Romantics

We are loving huge florals, giants bows, and high collars. Puffy sleeves? Yes, please. This is a sophisticated extension of the steam punk trend and we are loving the boldness of these designs. Dress it down with a cool sneaker, or really commit with a lace up bootie.

Ruffles, puffy sleeves, high-collar necklines, and loads of flowers—we spied these Victorian-era influences and more at shows like Emilia Wickstead, J.W. Anderson, and Erdem.

The X Silhouette

This is the neckline everyone can wear. It’s flattering on all body types and a bonus if your arms and shoulders are toned. Gone are the chunky statement necklaces and in are these flowing, feminine necklines. These are going to up the ante on your summer frock, or go right from day to night under a blazer.

Consider it a new riff on the off-the-shoulder top we saw all last spring. Spotted at Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Jason Wu, ADEAM, and Derek Lam, this silhouette was top among major designers.
