As we have explained before there are only a few trends that that the Kyle Alexandra team approves of each season. Trends come and go, recycle over and over. There are only a few trends that actually make sense. Crop tops? No way. Platform sneakers? Yeah right. We are featuring a few trends, today, that would work well into your lifestyle! Bright colors are an essential for warmer weather, so bright lightweight cardigans, colored skinny jeans and punchy handbags are a must. The go to footwear for spring includes metallic, patent nude and navy. Black and white are a huge spring trend, so try to buy a pretty work dress like the one featured here for a classic look. White lace is another big trend, but you should be careful about the way you wear it. We suggest you go for a pretty white lace skirt or a pullover sweater. Stripes are nautical and a great way to incorporate color into your wardrobe. Pair a striped shirt with a colored pant! And statement jewelry isn’t going anywhere. Brands like Kate Spade and JCrew have come out with some gorgeous pieces. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to shop!
Spring is in the air (even if the weather hasn’t changed yet) and we are so excited! We’ve started to gather spring outfit inspiration for clients, so we are sharing a few of our favorites here today. When we attended the spring shows at New York fashion week back in September the black and white trend was huge. Milly and Rachel Zoe created stunning silhouettes using the stark neutral contrasts. While we don’t approve of some of the laser cut outs and crop tops we saw on the run ways, this black and white dress would be darling for anything from work to a bridal shower! Spice it up with a bold colored flat. Speaking of laser cut outs, this white skirt is Kyle Alexandra approved and would be that special item to add to your closet this season.
Don’t worry ladies – colored skinnies are back! Instead of the jewel toned cords from fall, mint and radiant orchid are spring go-to colored, casual bottoms. Pair them with a soft pastel like the purple pullover sweater for an afternoon shopping spree or spring soccer game. And you will certainly be needing some outerwear for the transition of seasons! We’ve found that colorful, collarless jackets are a must have. This darling blue number is feminine and classic, but the color makes it modern.
And we can’t forget about accessories! The bolder, the better. For a date night or spring concert we recommend pairing a neutral ensembles with a metallic clutch and bold statement necklace. You can never go wrong with a pop of color!
I hope you are as excited for the warm weather as we are!
