BIG BOLD FLORALS
We know, “florals for Spring, groundbreaking.” But designers this Season focused on using the Springtime floral print in new and creative ways, from the floral “3-D appliqué” effect to the big bold floral patterning seen at Michael Kors, Caroline Hererra and Thom Browne. Designers are making the floral pattern big, loud, and bold for 2015 so don’t be shy in wearing this fun pattern from swimsuits, to dresses, to blouses. Get a trendy look like Michael Kors’ floral crop top and midi skirt with Shopbop’s “Milly” Pop Art floral crop top and matching skirt, perfect for a walk on the beach, or dress it up with Jimmy Choo “Lance” strappy sandals for evening wear.
Not just for little girls or picnics, Gingham made a big splash across the runways this Season from jackets to skirts to dresses to handbags. Our favorite gingham looks came from designer Diane von Furstenberg with her silky sheer gingham fabrics and feminine shorts, perfect for Spring. If you are timid about wearing such a bold pattern, try Oscar de la Renta’s chic gingham coat in lovely pastel colors, perfect to and from the office this Spring. And with designers mixing and matching patterns this Season, your gingham can be paired with pretty much any piece of you wardrobe, so why not try this trend for Spring!
Not just for weddings or lingerie, lace has come out to play this Spring 2015 from dresses to tops to skirts to pants. We love the collections of elegant and delicate lace on the runways at Valentino, Chloe, and Louis Vuitton. For a fun, flirty Spring, we love Hale Bob’s black lace shorts, paired perfectly with a sheer blouse for easy, breezy style. And who can go wrong with the perfect Summer dress? Hale Bob’s ivory sheer lace long sleeved dress is will keep you cool and chic all Summer long. Pair with a sunhat and sandals and you are ready to hit the beach. For a hot Summer night on the town, pair with chic heels and a sparkling gold Anya Hindmarch clutch. This is the ONLY dress you’ll need all Summer long.
A major trend on the Runways this Season was “color blocking,” the art of juxtaposing two colors together in geographical patterns. From sweaters to skirts to pants, color blocking is a creative way to wear colors in a new and fresh fashion for Spring. We love Hale Bob’s color blocked black and purple trimmed peplum long sleeved top, paired with black pants for a perfect Springtime look for the office. Or, for a night on the town, pair with a Hale Bob pencil skirt and Steve Madden “Unitty” pumps for a chic sleek look.

Another trend to hit the runway this Season is ruffles, seen on tops, dresses, and jackets. Not just reserved for beach coverups anymore, take your ruffles to the street and out on the town. We love Hale Bob’s black ruffle strapless dress in a trendy “midi” length skirt, versatile for day or night. Pair with chunky gold Gucci wedge sandals for daytime fun, and dress it up at night with BLADE Casadei sparkle pumps.
