Sprung! What's NEW!

The sun is shining, flowers have bloomed, and the pastiness of my wintry epidermis is slowly beginning to bronze.  Spring has officially sprung, and we are just on the cusp of summer fun! 

In my last blog I gave you a revamp rundown on what can still be worn in Spring/Summer 2014 from Spring/Summer 2013. Now that you know what's back, it's time to talk about two NEW trends to be sure to rock this season.  

What's NEW:  Wearable Art

This time of year, the runways of Paris, New York, Milan, and London tend to be one big garden party.  Don't get me wrong, I do love my florals and pastels... and who doesn't love a good party?  But this season, it is refreshing to see fashion as a more literal artistic expression.  Garments -- for the most part maintain classic silhouettes, while featuring graphic prints, Warhol-esque color schemes, chic cubism that would make Picasso proud, opulent embellishments, and portraiture reminiscent of the great Michelangelo.

What's NEW:  Pop of Collar

If you prefer your art on your walls and a more toned down conservative look, prepare to pop your collars, Preppies!  Detachable collars were all the rage a few seasons ago, but this season, the trend is more... how should I say... "put together".  Whether it's a white peter pan on a pastel shirt dress, or a crisp white convertible on a classic oxford; buttoned tightly, or hanging loose, this look will take an understated ensemble to the next level of chic.

I'm loving how versatile fashion is right now!  So far, we've got trends that are tribal, sporty, artsy, and preppy. Whether you're rocking the looks loud or low-key, you're sure to make a statement in one or ALL of them. If you're a TrendSnob like me, have fun mixing and matching a trend or two for a whole NEW look!  Stay tuned for more warm weather wrap-ups as we head into the sizzling summer months ahead!
