What clothing styles are trending for Spring? Take a look at the fashion forecast!
Even though New York is currently covered in snow, this upcoming season's fashion trends are starting to creep onto our shelves. It’s never too early to start thinking ahead, and the warm weather will be here before you know it! To get prepared we want to talk a bit about the fashion forecast for Spring 2017, including trends like bell sleeves, off the shoulder tops and dresses, and cold shoulder cutouts which will make appearances on dresses, sweaters, and tops of all styles. The focus this coming season is all on the #sleeves, whether they are wide, ruffled, or cut out, this is where all the drama will be happening. There will be popular prints and colors too; think stripes, florals, khaki, and hues of blue, but in terms of styles and shapes, dramatic details are the look to rock this Spring. We will show you how to pair these trending styles from your favorite designers with the hottest denim and accessories to be a style star this upcoming season. Let’s break it down further.
Bell sleeves are only continuing to get bigger and bolder into the Spring. What started as a little ruffle at the wrist is growing into full wide sleeves with long flowing bells that pack a dramatic punch. If you’re aiming to make a style statement this Spring a huge open sleeve is the way to go. Choosing a lightweight Faux suede dress in a neutral khaki color is a great way to take this look from the current winter season into Spring. Style this dress with over-knee boots and a wide choker necklace for a sleek look that focuses on the shape of the dress, or, to switch up the look try a statement necklace in shades of blue or gold with a voluminous up-do and chunky heels. Whether you take the flared sleeve look dressy or casual it is an easy way to add some drama to your look. Plus, this soft stretchy fabric is such a dream to wear you’ll be thinking up ways to keep re-styling it into the next season!
A favorite trend from last year, off the shoulder is back again this Spring in brand new prints and styles. If you want a fresh take on the look, try a one shoulder top which is the newest version of this popular style. Off one shoulder was a look that dominated on the New York Fashion Week runways this fall as designers debuted their Spring collections, and is finally making its way into our stores. It’s a refreshing take on off the shoulder that keeps us wanting more from the trend! If you want to bare both collarbones as the weather gets warmer, fear not- the off the shoulder look we know and love is still a shirt favorite for Spring. Pinstripes are going to be big for the season as well, so a blouse like this one makes a perfect piece to show off your fashion forward style, especially when paired with skinny jeans and platform sandals. Keep it cool with classic shades and a stylish choker necklace to show off the open neckline. The blue and white stripes that were all over NYFW’s spring shows are a spin off of the button down oxford shirts that are popular in the corporate world, taking it to the streets with an updated feminine feel. Off the shoulder is also a prominent style for sundresses in bright hues or pretty florals that we will be seeing a lot of as the weather warms up. It’s exciting to see how this style evolves from past seasons into the latest Spring trends.
If off the shoulder is not your thing, the cold shoulder look is an easier style to try that is just as fashionable! Showing a little less skin this way can feel more comfortable while still taking part in the shoulder-baring direction. With this versatile trend you can play with different necklines like a yolk style, crewneck, or v cut, as well as sleeve styles such as tight fitted or loose and drapey. Cold shoulders make appearances in both casual and elegant styles for your day to day favorites and your statement-making dressy looks. With so many variations on the cold shoulder you can find the combination that best fits your personal style to feel confident in the latest trend, or try out different looks that you’re not used to. We love this silk top from Amanda Uprichard which features a yolk neck, front v slit, cold shoulder cutouts, and drapey sleeves for a perfect Spring look. Classic black will take this piece from season to season effortlessly, and the smooth silk fabric is easy to dress up or down for any occasion. Here we paired it with high rise jeans and gold dangle earrings for an outfit ready for ladies night out a local wine bar. The ensemble is simple and chic and takes on the latest trends with an understated elegance. Your girls will be asking you where you found this perfect top so they can get one too!

Off the shoulder bell sleeve tops are in abundance in our Spring collection, and are an effortless way to look cool this coming Spring. Adding not one but two of the season’s top trends into one piece is a recipe for style perfection!
