At last, the grey skies and sub-zero temperatures have lifted–winter is behind us once again. It’s the perfect time to breathe a breath of fresh air into your wardrobe with the season’s top trends.
Year after year, botanical blooms make their way into our closets and bring us a beautiful bouquet of style–this year, they make an appearance as delicate floral embroideries, decorating our tops, dresses, and pants.
They even flourish all over our 9-to-5 cuts, bringing a playful feel to elevated dressing. From structured blazers to tailored piece –these smart cuts get a colourful makeover.
Vintage-inspired and romantic, ruffles are making a comeback–not surprising since they add elegance and personality to the simplest pieces–a true work of art.
In addition to being oh-so stylish, ruffles add dimension & movement to your silhouette, which can be used to highlight certain areas.
For example: If you have a petite frame, use ruffles to accentuate a small chest or narrow shoulders. If you are a plus size, these lavish details will flatter all your best assets.
3. Pastel Palettes
After a harsh cold-weather season, our wardrobe is finally coming back to life. Baby blues, canary yellows and soft pinks, reminiscent of spring’s awakening, are the go-to hues this month.
Easy-to-wear and feminine, this palette is re-energizing and fresh. Lighter shades cooling things down for the long-awaited warmer weather. Opt for an accent piece or go head-to-toe in this season trend.
4. Asymmetric Cuts
This season, asymmetric cuts are a must-have for a polished modern feel–diagonal lines, draped detailing, and cascading fabrics create movement, flattering the silhouette.
Laura & Melanie Lyne’s curated collection of asymmetric styles feature uneven hemlines and necklines, and daring cold-shoulder cutouts. Bold dresses and skirts take the lead when it comes to show-stopping style.
5. The Belt Bag (Fanny Pack)
Increasing in popularity in the ’90s, the belt bag AKA the “fanny pack” has always been at the receiving end of mixed reviews. But whether you hate it or love it, it’s here to stay.
Much to our surprise, the new and improved packs come in many different styles that pair perfectly with anything in your closet. We are convinced that Céline Dion’s Leather Belt Bag will persuade even the most skeptical fashionista.
