Spring trends are popping up all over town! From bold prints, to bright florals, all white ensembles, and sportswear inspired looks. I popped into a few local Saratoga boutiques; using my styling expertise to pull together an outfit focused around one or more of this season’s top trends. Come with me and check out what I found! Cheers- Yvonne

It is all about the shoes! Their Spring sandals are perfection. For this look I featured a pair of slides. They are all the rage and offer a more casual feel, as seen paired with this mesh dress for a sportswear inspired look. By the way, a flat slide - your feet will thank you. Where to Wear: Weekend getaway or a Saturday shopping trip.

Lifestyles Please, take a moment to check out their extensive scarf collection – it is impeccable. For this look I went right for the stripe. I paired this striped top with a midi linen skirt in denim blue, flats and a cross body straw bag. Stripes are always on trend and the skirt’s silhouette with its loose fit is the perfect compliment. Where to Wear: Brunch at one of Saratoga’s delectable spots.

Such an eclectic, Bohemian vibe, with accessories to die for. Their use of fringe, florals, suede, and graphic tees encompass a handful of trends coming our way this Spring. Suede is no longer strictly for the colder climates. Rock it in a pair of shorts or skirt. If you want to play it safe, opt for a more subtle option, like this suede fringe bag. Where to Wear: Weekend getaway or an outdoor concert.

Alexis Aida Contemporary, sophisticated pieces with a flirty twist. This matching set in black and white plaid is the perfect day to night look. Again, we see the two-piece trend as well as the black and white combo and the plaid print. All of these trends are following us right into the Spring season. Where to wear: The office and happy hour cocktails.

Violets:

The perfect mix of style and comfort; you just want to live in their pieces. I chose these olive green toothpick pants with the exposed grommet detailing going up its side. This look plays off the military and neutral trend. Paired with an open knit sweater and topped with a leather-trimmed blazer – you are on your way! Where to Wear: The office or a day out with the girls.

Intricate beading and flowing fabrics greet you at the door. For this look the texture and detailing speak for itself, allowing the white leather to act as a clean canvas. The leather fabric, white on white, and floral cutouts all encompass this season’s top trends. Were to wear: An outdoor garden wedding or evening social event.
