Spring Trends: What they are, Where to find them, and How to wear them!

My intern Alexis is currently vacationing in Miami (jealous!) and she wrote about all of the amazing spring fashion trends she’s seen down there! Enjoy!

When TOMMYXGIGI hit the streets it was clear to see it would spark one of the biggest trends for spring – high-waisted pants, numerous gold buttons, navy, rouge, and ivory galore. And with the extra add-ons like oversized sunglasses and silk ascots, why wouldn’t this make for the perfect outfit on one of those warm spring days?

Femme Fatal
April Showers bring May Flowers in both physical and printed forms. Floral prints are a must for Spring, but this year we’re seeing a large mix of feminine and edgy pieces as the hardness of the 90s we’ve seen reinventing itself spills into the upcoming season. Chiffon maxi-dresses under leather jackets, sneakers in place of wedges, muted colors in traditionally light silhouettes, and even just small peaks of floral in otherwise hard outfits.

Mules
As the 90s continue to make its comeback, one piece you can now confidently pull from the back of your closet and dust off again are your mules. A more creative version of loafers, mules are closed-toed but backless and the perfect transition shoe for those days when it’s 40° in the morning and 70° by the afternoon.

Ring Handle Bags
As the geometrics of the winter seasons trickle into the upcoming months, shapes take a softer stance as well, changing from hard angled polygons to infinite circles. As we saw throughout Fashion Month, these polygons will still be seen in all your favorite patterns, but ring handle bags are the new perfect way to warm up your wardrobe right along with the weather.

Ring handle bags are just like any other bags and can be made to fit your style.
