Three Runway Trends to Try this Spring

Alright, so I know it's not even February, but I am ready for spring! While I can't start working in my garden, and I definitely don't feel like cleaning, I can start shopping. The great thing about the fashion trends this year is that they all seem highly compatible with pieces from my fall/winter wardrobe. For example the sequins we all have left over from New Year's will fit in nicely with the sparkling looks seen on Spring 2014 runways. Darker menswear inspired pieces are out and about this spring, too, as well as leather detailing, which I know we all have tons of left over from last fall. So read on friends, and get inspired, because it wont always be frigid outside, and right now I think we all need a little reminder that in a few months, this nasty bit of cold will be but a memory.

On with the the show:

1. Spring Sparkle: No longer are your sequined, shiny items relegated to the back of your closet on January 1st. This Spring, sparkle was all over the runways. Seen at Rachel Zoe, Gucci, and Lanvin, models wore luminous seperates that really shone. Banish Seasonal Effective disorder by letting
your own light shine. For a more casual take, pair your sequined top with a boyfriend jean, or add a white tee and denim jacket to a gold lamé harem pant.

2. Menswear Redux: There is a reason the menswear trend is something we see again and again every season. Menswear inspired seperates are timeless and can be re-styled again and again to create different looks. This year, designers at Spring Fashion Week brought us tailored suiting. Whether fitted androckabilly inspired, as seen at Saint Laurent, or structured, yet easy, as seen at Stella McCartney and Tom Ford, the power suit is back. 

3.Floral Embellishment: This Spring, your garden won’t be the only thing blooming. Runways at Spring Fashion Week were bursting at the seams with floral embellishment. At Marni, dresses and outerwear exploded with vibrant buds and petals. In stark comparison, at Galliano snow white blossoms pinwheeled from leather separates, confirming that the leather trend is still going strong this spring. Giambattista Valli also used heavy embellishment but toned it down with neutral separates.
