TRENDING SPRING PRINTS AND STYLES YOU’LL WEAR ALL SEASON

Rene-Caovilla-SS14-1

With the clocks moving forward this weekend, Spring has finally sprung. With longer days and warmer nights, it’s time to start filling our closets with the Season’s favorite patterns, silhouettes, and styles. From off the shoulder, to slouchy pants, to groovy tie dye, designers this year focused on a laid back approach to beauty. Take a look at our top favorite looks on the runways and we’ll show you how you can incorporate the trends now and later into your wardrobe.

OFF THE SHOULDER BLOUSE

From Rebecca Minkoff to Stella McCartney to Michael Kors, the “cold shoulder” is one of the top trends to revive on the runways this Season. We love the flowy “Boho” casual yet put together off the shoulder silhouette. This Season, look for blouses, dresses, crop tops, and even vests with the cut out style. Ease into Spring with Hale Bob’s long sleeve floral silk blouse combined with your favorite skinny jeans or leggings. Go classic by accessorizing with wedge sandals or ankle booties and a reversible oversized tote from Urban Outfitters. Or go “Boho” chic with a floppy straw hat from Free People, a suede trimmed lace kimono from Liberty Garden, and fringe booties from JSlides . As the weather warms, try a black Chevron knit dress with trending gladiator sandals from Sam Edelman or take your bright pink tribal print blouse to the beach paired with your favorite swimsuit. Classic or Boho. Cool or warm. Curvy or boy shaped. The off the shoulder look fits every style, every climate, and every shape this Spring.

STATEMENT SLEEVES

Seen at the Milly Spring 2016 Spring runway shows, another blouse shape we love is the statement sleeve. From bell shaped, to flare, to flounce, add a little glamour to your style this Season. Wow them at work in Hale Bob’s black embroidered lace blouse paired with printed crepe de chine wide leg pants and sturdy black pumps from Charles David for all day wear. Or, go trendy with this year’s “Boho” chic craze and combine your top with Citizen’s of Humanity’s cropped rolled skinny jeans, suede booties from Vince Camuto, and a fringe crossbody from White House Black Market . Dazzle and delight on your next evening out with Hale Bob’s beaded cuff silk blouse accessorized with Current/Elliot’s sleek black leather leggings, bright pink clutch and embellished pumps from Betsey Johnson. A few of our other favorite looks we love are Hale Bob’s cherry red silk double georgette long sleeve dress and shimmy the night away in a black jeweled silk tunic cocktail dress. Make a statement without saying a word this Season in your own flouncy sleeved outfit.

TIE DYE PRINT

Get groovy! A throwback to 70’s fashion continues for Spring 2016. With designers like AltuzarraRachel Comey, and Raquel Allegra showing tie dye prints on everything from blouses to pants to cocktail dresses, 2016 is the time to tap into your inner “hippie” and vibe with the times. Go full on “Boho” in Hale Bob’s luscious mint green tie dye maxi dress paired with all the essential accessories: floppy hat, gladiator sandals, fringe bag, and crochet shawl. Or, choose the blue jersey knit maxi skirt topped with a comfy basic white tee and Urban Outfitters’ flat sandals for warm weather and Lucky Brand’s leather ankle booties for chiller days. You can also take this look to the office with Hale Bob’s quartz rose and serenity blue tie dye shirt dress, Pantone’s colors of the year. Simply switch out your conservative work heels for Loeffler Randall’s NEW ankle strap sandals and you are ready to hit the nightlife in style. From the workplace to the playground, you are sure to keep it groovin’ in the 70’s favorite print pattern.

SUBTLE FLORALS

We know, we know….”florals for Spring, groundbreaking.” But unlike last Spring’s bold flower pattern, designers this year are bringing a softer, more muted floral touch. Look for smaller shapes, delicate designs, and “watercolor” imaging. We like Hale Bob’s faux wrap sheath dress in soft pastels paired with Michael Kors’ “flex” pumps for the office and Lauren Lorraine’s embellished T-strap sandals for after work fun. We also like Hale Bob’s blush pink shift dress with a subtle floral pattern, perfect for any Springtime occasion. Looking for something a little more casual? Go with the floral pattern black cami paired with a matching ivory lace skort from Liberty Garden, comfy sneakers from NEW designer Ellen DeGeneres, and a straw hat from Eugenia Kim. Lastly, one of our favorites to suit any style, occasion, or figure, is Hale Bob’s flowy silk chiffon long sleeve blouse. Combine your delicate top with anything from ultra suede leggings to a white embroidered mini skirt to cropped boyfriend jeans from Citizen’s of Humanity. Get in touch with your feminine side this Spring, and add a hint of floral to your closet.

RUFFLES

Another favorite “feminine” style to walk down the runways this Season are ruffles everywhere. From Alexander McQueen’s delicate lace maxi skirts, to Balmain’s chiffon tops, to Giambattista’s retro dresses designers this year are re-inventing an age old style from decades ago. Spread a little romance this Spring, and shop Hale Bob’s flouncy ruffled floral sun dress paired with T-strap flat sandals from Diane von Furstenberg for everyday and the leather cage heels from Schutz for hot summer nights. Or put a little salsa in your step in Hale Bob’s black silk ruffled sleeveless mid length dress. If the climate is still a bit chilly, you can warm up by combining your dress with a cozy ivory fur jacket from Hale Bob and closed toed pumps from Kendall+Kylie. Ruffles aren’t just reserved for dresses. Slip into Hale Bob’s cool blue frilly washed silk top or the ruffled textured lace blouse accessorized with this Season’s trendy wide leg pants from AC Collection or black cotton eyelet shorts when the weather warms.

SLOUCHY PANTS

We finish with our favorite pants silhouette for Spring- the slouchy trousers. With designers taking a more casual and “no fuss” approach to Spring 2016 fashion, the slouchy pant is a perfect choice to keep you stylin’ all Season long. For casual days around the house or the perfect “athleisure” look, pair Liberty Garden’s grey embroidered terry lounge pants with Liberty Garden’s ivory swing back tee or grey draping sweatshirt on chillier Spring days. For the office or dressier occasions, switch to Hale Bob’s taupe or black satin cropped pants topped with a black laser cut cami, ivory pleated swing tank, or add a splash of color in a pink printed halter top. Accessorize your look with a taupe “military” jacket or black Bolero coat on cooler Spring days and nights. Wherever you choose to wear your slouchy pants, you will always appear casual, cool, confident, and completely in style.

Found on dresses, blouses, sweaters, pantsuits, and handbags, blush pink is the hottest new color trend to hit the fashion industry and it looks like the color is continuing into the Fall Season. Spruce up your winter wardrobe with this year’s color trend. We love Liberty Garden’s pink tattered long sleeve shirt paired with Hale Bob’s ivory ultra suede leggings for casual days out. On your next night on the town, forgo the predictable LBD and opt for Hale Bob’s chic powder pink suede shift dress accessorized with matching pink suede heels from Jeffrey Campbell.

Or simply throw on Hale Bob’s ruby red fur vest over your outfit of the day for a trendy “jewel toned” touch to your Fall style.

Boho fringe skirt

BOHO FRINGE

Cool festival style “Boho” fringe is still trending into the Fall season. Forgo summer’s sheer lace and gladiators and update the look for the cooler months with suede, leather, and knee high boots. Start with Hale Bob’s orange short sleeve shirt with fringe paired with Joe’s Jeans’ black jeggings and Ralph Lauren’s fringe suede knee high boots. Update your outerwear with a chic black leather fringe jacket from Rebecca Minkoff for those crisp, chilly Fall days and accessorize with your fringe handbag and “Boho” floppy hat from summer.

RETRO 70’s

With Boho fringe still trending, retro 70’s style is grooving its way into the Fall and Winter Season. Look for wide leg jeans, flare overalls, peasant blouses, bold floral patterns and long sleeve maxi dresses. Get a similar “retro” look as pictured above at New York Fashion Week with Topshop’s floral print overalls paired with a sleek crop top from Blue Life and “70’s style” clogs from Steve Madden. We also like AC Collection’s wide leg jeans in a variety of washes to suit your “retro” style. Pair the dark blue color with Hale Bob’s ivory “peasant” style silk chiffon blouse for casual days out, the gray hue with Hale Bob’s red silk button down for the office and the sparkle tint with Hale Bob’s black satin blouse with lace detailing for cocktail hour.

CROPPED WIDE LEG

Following the trend of retro 70’s, the wide leg pant gets an update this Season with a shorter, cropped style. Spotted all over the streets of New York for Fashion Week, the wide leg cropped pant is one of this Fall’s trendiest fashion statements. From daytime to evening, let your cropped pant style work for you this year. Start with Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash wide leg cropped denim jeans and pair with your favorite white Tee and sneakers for an everyday “Athleisure” look. Segue into the evening hours by accessorizing your denim with Liberty Garden’s NEW black long sleeve mesh blouse and gold sparkle heels from Betsey Johnson. You can create your own cropped style by rolling the cuffs of any of your favorite wide leg pants in your closet for a new and updated silhouette this Fall. Go ahead and give it a try.

MAXI DRESS

A third “retro” look continuing into the cooler months of Autumn is the flowy maxi dress. With careful styling and just the right accessories, you can continue wearing your favorite Summer maxi dress style throughout Fall and Winter. Forgo the flat sandals and straw hat and layer your maxi with a heavier knit sweater, suede jacket, ankle booties, or strappy heels. Choose maxi dresses and skirts with warmer colors and darker floral prints for Fall. Check out our great selection of maxi dresses from Hale Bob and Liberty Garden in a variety of styles, colors, and prints to fit any occasion. We like Liberty Garden’s newest black and white strapless embroidered maxi dress perfect for a night on the town, or go with Hale Bob’s black lace maxi for a classic look.

SHIRTDRESS

Our final favorite street style trend spotted at last week’s NYFW is the shirtdress. Take a tip from celebrities Vanessa Hudgens, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Olivia Palermo and give this look a try for Fall. The simplest way to work the look is to grab your husband’s large button down shirt from the closet, cinch with a skinny belt, and pair with your favorite knee high boots. Or, shop the look now with our top choices from Hale Bob. Try the black and white floral button down shirtdress accessorized with Michael Kors’ black knee high boots or suede wedges from Steve Madden. Dress up your shirtdress by adding delicate jewelry and pairing with your favorite strappy heels to dance the night away.
