ith spring comes renewal and this year is no exception. Clean out your closet and enjoy adding pieces that express your individuality and reflect this seasons new top trends.

Color comes to life this spring with bold hues of reds, blues, and yellows. I am loving Diane Von Furstenberg’s silhouettes in these tones which are classy yet bold. As seen on the runways of Rebecca Taylor and Marc by Marc Jacobs mixing and matching prints is encouraged this season. Unique prints are easy to find throughout all the designer’s collections. Earth elements are making a statement as well through natural colors of pale pinks, ivorys, tans, whites, and khaki. This color palette looks exceptional with sun kissed skin and glossy lips. The 3.1 Phillip Lim collection highlighted these hues in an elegant yet wearable style. For must have items this season, invest in skirts, shorts, rompers, strong shoulders, and blazers to update your wardrobe.

The trends this spring have something for everyone with silhouettes to suit lifestyle and budget. We have categorized the spring trends into: the Americana woman, safari chick, the party girl, glam lady, and the valley girl. As always, fashion is about self expression. Celebrate the change of season by picking new pieces for your wardrobe that reflect the freshness of new trends.

Candy Coated! Parties, Showers or Tea

The girly chick can come alive this season with an e mpha si s on l a ce , f l oral , a n d l a v e n d e r. Whether dressing for parties, showers, or tea you can’t go wrong with embracing the vintage inspiration of My Fair Lady. Think of cupcakes, sprinkles, and colored candy mixed with floral bouquets to nail this trend. Looks are found in printed dresses and camis that speak sweet. Mix in pearls, floral jewelry and top it off with hair accessories of bows and flowers. Shoes consist of embellished ballet flats or ruffled heels. Bring in a pop color with a clutch. For makeup try pink tones and play up lashes with a double coat of mascara for that Twiggy inspired look. Nails should be cropped short with nude or light pink polish.

or Spring Ten there’s a fresh, classic feel in the air. It’s been really good being able to appreciate the past while looking forward and being progressive. Appreciation of Mid- Century modernism and classic style has been a focus for many seasons now, and it keeps getting better; we’re also revisiting the 60s surf culture and the lifestyle surrounding the era. We love the statement, “If it’s designed well once, then it’s designed well forever,” and it’s as true as ever for menswear this season. Visiting the past in American culture has been an exciting journey, and we are making history as we speak by selecting American designers who are making products with a huge value proposition of price point, fit and overall look. Staying away from trend-driven pieces is our mission at this time as well, so buying great fitting classic pieces is essential for the upcoming season. I see dry-selvage denim making a huge impact in the market right now, as well as khaki pants and shorts entering the picture as denim alternatives. The classic button-down shirt is your new t-shirt, and the work boot is here to stay. The boat shoe and moccasin have been mainstays for always being quintessential, as well as a staple lace-up pair of Vans. Then finishing your look off with a classic oxford shirt for dress or casual is always a solid play.

Letter From The Stylist Matt Baldwin

90 | Standard Style Boutique

The word “fashion” has encompassed a lot over the past ten years, when America has gone from a mass-market consumer mentality to a market where most are- striving for their own identity. I’d like to get away from the words fashion and trends and instead strive to find out what it means to live life to the fullest with style. Lifestyle encompasses well thought out decisions about what we wear, what we drive, where we live, and where we eat. The basic choices we make with our time and money is so relevant given the state of America at this time. Making educated decisions as an American consumer is vital. Looking to the success of the past has been a blast as we went into the design process for Baldwin Denim and the spring 2010 product buy for the stores. Buying American-made and American-sourced products have been a personal passion of mine, ranging from produce to clothing. From American-made selvage denim to Red Wing boots, these products are functional and have a huge value proposition due to their long lasting nature and enduring style. I will be passing them down to my two sons, and something about all this just feels right. It strikes a cord with the nature of being a man.

Not many things define American style like denim and a t-shirt.

Dry-selvage denim lays the foundation, made to be worn and telling the story of how you wear it. The classic t-shirt gets some company, being joined by faded polos and button-downs as the new basics. The roots of American style endure this spring; these are constants in a world of fast fashion.

Spring Fix BETWEEN CASUAL & DRESSY Cruising through your neighborhood in the brisk air, enjoying the time between the cold and the heat is the heart of spring. Somewhere between casual and dressy, this season’s styles emerge with washed out buttondowns and chinos in muted colors.

A Classic Cut THE GO TO LOOK High and tight, a hard part, just a little off the top and sides. No matter how they liked it, men in the past always had a go to look and knew who to go see to get it. This season tells a similar story: a look that can become “your look,� simple and understated, with emphasis on fit and great pops of classic reds and blues. Sure to look as good as a new haircut.
