1) SOFT hues
Soft hues are huge this spring, but the true novelty is in bringing multiple complimentary soft colors all together for one refreshing mix. We’ve seen soft pinks and shades of beige in recent seasons, but as we’ve accumulated these fundamental hues in our wardrobe, it feels fresh to start pairing them all together in one tone on tone outfit. It offers a look that’s not girly, but rather feminine and polished.
Trend Tip: With this trend, make sure to allocate budget on great accessories, especially shoes. By bringing the soft hues trend throughout the entire outfit, you’re able to really establish a clean statement of subtlety in your look.
2) relaxed TAILORING
This trend lends a view into what seems to be happening in most offices around the world, especially here in North America. Work places are becoming more flexible in everything they do, including what’s considered appropriate work attire. Soft tailoring seems to offer a fashionable connect between the old and the new as a key piece for looking professional, yet still approachable. I call it the new corporate jacket.
Style tip: This is a jacket that can as easily be paired with leather loafers as it can be with your favorite pair of white sneakers. Depending on your office, there’s definitely enough elegance in this jacket to style it down with a pair of tennis shoes. Just keep the rest of your outfit classic and clean – a pair of fresh white sneakers will only add to the refined, cool-girl look.
3) THE NEW jean
Women are constantly on the search for jeans that just simply fit. We come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and need a jean that’s going to hug us in all the right places. I’m in love with a pair of jeans where you can tell someone has put extra focus into the cut of the jeans for that very reason. We want something modern, yet still comfortable and flattering. The mid-rise on these skinny jeans is amazing. It offers so much to women in feeling spot on with the skinny jean essential, yet offers a sense of comfort that any sort of problem area will have the support it needs.Style Tip: A great denim look can be timeless. Biker jacket, white shirt – done and out the door, all while looking bon chic!
