New Season Spring Essentials

It may be still technically be winter, but if the sunshine has any say in it, spring has well and truly sprung, and we cannot wait to break out of the jeans-and-boots routine and bare some skin. The key trends for the new season are frisky, fun, and feel very fresh (just as spring should be).

The New Shape

Seen at: Chloe, Dolce and Gabbana, Hache

The new shape for spring is bold and most certainly not shy. Think artfully structured volume and big folds. Keep this look light and flirty with tailored shorts and cropped tops, like the Sicilian babes at Dolce and Gabbana, or keep it euro-chic and stick with neutrals to avoid looking OTT. 

We are loving the modern, wearable silhouettes of the new Hache collection, available at James Street's Sans Peur Workshop

High Shine

Seen at: Jonathan Saunders, Diane Von Furstenberg, Christian Dior, Burberry

Fabrics were high gloss, metallic, reflective, embossed, gilded, and embellished within an inch of their lives on the spring runways. To keep this look from looking gaudy, ground your glitz with a neutral hue, and pair this look with natural, unkempt hair.

Get your paws on some glitter, with the sequin jacket by Hunkydory at Samantha Ogilvie, the Goldfinger Leather skirt at Beau in The Woods, and the Duchess Dress from Aje (find Aje in store at Haut Boheme).

All White, Alright

Seen at: Jil Sander, Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, Simone Rocha

All white ensembles were a force to be reckoned with this winter, and this trend is showing no signs of slowing down as we head into spring. White pieces felt crisp, futuristic, and androgynous, and were cut in boxy silhouettes and sporty finishes. P Diddy's birthday-party-white, this ain't.

Drawn-on Denim

Seen at: Phillip Lim, Karl Lagerfeld, Rag & Bone

Designers were happy to continue getting ultra playful with denim for spring.  Pants were patchworked and printed, and the classic denim button-down came in every iteration (though a bleached-out number paired with denim cut-offs will always have our hearts as the ultimate spring ensemble).

We can't get enough of the doodled on, Mary Katrantzou x Current Elliott collection, available at camargue
