Jackie Rose is a style consultant and personal shopper with a love for all-things-fashion. Most recently featured in Refinery29’s 3 Crazy Closets You’ve Got To See To Believe, it’s safe to say that Jackie knows a thing or two about style. Read on to learn more about spring trends to try this season…
Springtime is my favorite season for fashion—a celebration of beauty, femininity,and elegance in both nature and in fashion. All winter long we look forward to the weather warming up allowing us to be able to wear beautiful dresses, vibrant colors, and clothes that make us feel truly feminine—and that time is finally here!
As I tell all my clients: Be inspired by what moves you, you don’t have to follow something just because it is trendy. Take what you want from each trend and make it your own.
Black & White Ensembles
This trend translates really well into the modern woman’s wardrobe. The Black and White Ensemble is a classic way to look effortlessly chic. I’ve been recommending to clients they try a black skirt with a white silk blouse, or a LBD (Little Black Dress) with a white blazer over with heels. If you want to have a little fun with it, try adding a pop of color with a statement necklace or a fun and vibrant lip color. Either way, this is a winning combination.
Ruffles, Frills, and Flounce
We will be seeing quite a bit of this trend during the spring season. I particularly love the strategically placed ruffles on a collar or neckline, adding detailed flair to a pencil skirt, or embellishing a one shoulder blouse. I tell clients that with this trend less is more. I really enjoy the ruffles on a pretty pastel for spring but there is also something truly elegant about the way black ruffles move on a woman’s body for a night look.
This trend is my favorite so far. We’re seeing it on the red carpet, and we’re seeing it on the runway. I recommend a delicate lace blouse with skinny jeans and a bright clutch or a colorful lace skirt paired simply with a white tee and a bold statement necklace. This look pairs great with metallic flats.
