Spring/Summer Trends

spring summer fashion trends

The weather warm-up every March and April means it’s time to turn in the scarves and puffers and turtlenecks for dresses, skirts and capris. Keep your warm-weather wardrobe overhaul on trend and sensible with our insight on the spring/summer trends worth investing in this season!

Of course, there are some rules you can count on every spring. For one, your fav online and brick-and-mortar retailers will replace the rich, jewel tones with brighter colors and patterns. You’ll see jewelry move from chunky to dainty. And of course, knee-highs and OTK boots will disappear in favor of mules, slides and wedges.

But the silhouettes that rule the day — those change almost every spring. The good news is we have a fair bit of warning. The spring/summer fashion shows that crop up in the big cities in the previous fall generally dictate what’s hot six months later when temps rise.
