We’re in the homestretch of the longest winter ever and are anxiously counting down the days until spring: 22 to be exact! Eager to ditch our arctic chic wardrobe, we’re already strategizing our first spring fashion splurge. One major spring trend we’re lusting over: bright, bold florals. We first spotted this trend backstage at the Kate Spade Spring/Summer 2013 fashion show (see above). Using Kate Spades’s beautiful pink, red and purple floral print as inspiration, we searched for a few more key pieces to help you easily incorporate this fun look into your wardrobe. Now you can scratch “spring shopping” off your to-do list.
Kate Spade Broome Street Capri, $228
We’re so happy that these floral print pants are finally here to purchase! The color combo of the pinks, reds and yellows screams spring and the watercolor paint effect makes it a unique floral print, rather than obvious flowers. Pair them with a solid colored sweater, trench coat and flats for a busy day full of errands or with a blue button down, blazer and heels for the office.
Kate Spade Tulip Top, $268
We loved the Kate Spade floral print so much that we want the flowy top too. We love the way the top cinches at the waist to create a flattering silhouette. Pair this top with dark wash skinny jeans and beige booties for a casual look or with a bright a-line skirt or black slacks for a more work-appropriate look.
H&M Sweater, $20
For a spring look at a steal, try this gray floral sweater. This sweater can be dressed up or down. On weekends wear it with white denim pants and flats, and for the office it can be worn with a pencil skirt and heels. Add a chunky necklace and you are good to go.
Nanette Lepore Wipe Out Skirt, $298
We love the hip-hugging shape and vibrant colors of this pencil skirt. Lean towards a dark nighttime look with a black top or a brighter day look with a white top. Don’t overlook how fabulously chic the zipper detail is in the back.
Milly Paneled Dress, $435
This structured dress is the perfect silhouette to show off all your right curves. The mesh detail of the neckline gives the dress a little something extra and frames the simple neckline nicely. We also love the elbow length of sleeves for those spring days when the temperature is not too hot and not too cold.
Deborah Lippmann Groove Is In The Heart, $17
Of course, we couldn’t ignore how equally cute all then models nails were backstage at the Kate Spade Spring 2013 fashion show. We love how manicurist Deborah Lippmann paired brights and neutrals to create an edgy reverse french effect. But can you do that on your own? No way. Instead, just wear the best pink of the season: Groove Is In The Heart.
