Although it snowed on Tuesday, it is officially spring! Which means if you haven’t done so already, now is the time to start working on your wardrobe. The start of a new season warrants a time to take inventory of what’s currently hanging in your closet and look for ways to incorporate the season’s trends (of course ones you can wear year after year) into your wardrobe.
Here’s a list of the hottest trends of the season!
Do a crunch or two because crop tops are here! This is probably the season’s hottest trends. Crop tops are everywhere. Keep the look classy and feminine, by pairing them with high waisted skirts or pants allowing just a little bit of skin to show.
Jill Stuart, Tracy Reese, Joie, Alice + Olivia
While we are used to seeing bright colors during the warmer months, this year is all about pastels. Infuse this trend into your wardrobe with pastel dresses, shirts and jackets. If you don’t want to spend the money on apparel, add a pastel scarf or printed pastel scarf to your wardrobe; this will allow you to incorporate the trend without feeling like you’re fully committing to it like you would if you purchased a dress.
Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, Rebecca Taylor
It wouldn’t be spring without florals. Like leather is a fall staple, florals are most certainly a spring staple! Have fun with floral dresses and tops. You can also switch things up and look to add florals to your wardrobe with a new floral clutch or shoes with floral details.
Between pastels and all white, this spring season is all about clean lines. In this case, less is more! All white is a major trend this season and I think it’s one of the sexiest. You can wear dresses or tops with pants, skirts and shorts.

Tomboy Chic (aka sporty chic)
Love mesh, sweatshirts, bomber jackets, track pants and chunky heels? Then this trend is for you! Tomboy chic plays on the balance between masculine and feminine details. Pair bomber jackets with shorts, boxy tops with slim pants or mesh tops with skirts to create the perfect tomboy chic outfit.
Gucci, Alexander Wang, Emilio Pucci
Every spring season it’s all about prints! This year, along with florals, the focus will be on geometric prints. I’m glad to see geometric prints are popular this season; it is something different than traditional stripes. Geometric prints adds a breath of fresh air to the print trend as a whole.
Another sexy silhouette this season is sheer. Discretely show skin in a sexy but classy way with sheer tops and skirts or with pieces that have sheer panels.
BCBG, Alice + Olivia, Clover Canyon, Zimmermann
The popularity of suits returns this season. But don’t be shy when it comes to your suiting options. Experiment with color and print this season; meaning you can have fun with colors other than black, grey and navy. Remember, visit a tailor; fit is key to looking great in a suit!
L’Wren Scott, Ralph Lauren and Antonio Berardi
