This season’s attention-getting trends seem to skew toward the edgy side of the style spectrum–think shreds, studded bags, and army green. But why should girly girls let their downtown counterparts have all the fun? Wardrobes stuffed with floral frocks and flirty skirts can be just as fashion-forward as those packed with Alexander Wang bags and leather jackets. It just takes a few spring trends made for the feminine at heart.
Barely There Neutrals
Swap your go-to pastels for a layered mix of ivory, blush pink, nude, and delicate grey for a look that’s soft yet fashion-forward.
This style isn’t exclusive to tangled chains and metal mesh. A silk bib necklace adorned with ribbons and rhinestones (like the Haute Hippie necklace pictured) or one with a ladylike vintage flair (like this by Rachel Leigh jewelry) updates a ruffled jersey dress or simple blouse.
Spotted on the spring runways (like Chanel’s barnyard show), white dresses get an airy touch with the season’s sweetest fabric. Bypass the strappy sandals and pair with a substantial shoe, like wooden platforms, or balance the frill with bohemian accessories like beaded jewelry and flat sandals.
