What's the Deal: Women's Spring Fashion
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) —
Spring is here! While most of us are ready for the warmer temperatures, our closets might not quite be up for the change.
So, What’s the Deal with women’s spring fashion this year? We break down the good, the bad…and maybe even a bit of the ugly.
"Everybody is so ready to start breathing new life into every aspect of their life including their closets and this year it's so colorful, it's very fun, it's very feminine." Lifestyle blogger Brooke Williams joins the owners of Nest Boutique in Biltmore Village in their love for the season.
"With the spring comes the sun and warm temperatures and the white pants, and lighter denims and the crops and the florals," says Millie Giangrasso. And there are some clear favorites you can expect to see everywhere this season, "the kimono is making a big appearance this year."
Essentially, an elevated robe in silks, satins and florals, "it's feminine and flirty and gives a good spring vibe," says Next co-owner Susan Stewart.
"Something that basically you can wear at home and then throw on some wedges or mules and a basic t-shirt and basic denim bottom and go out the door and you will be on trend," adds Giangrasso.
Another option, throw on your trench, a ‘must have’ transitional piece, paired with dresses to jeans, "lighter denim trend with the crop hemline is really big this spring," says Stewart.
Also in this season, the ever-classic ruffles and prints, "you're also going to see a lot of pretty colors. So lots of pastels, but not Easter eggs, we're talking beautiful saturated pinks, lavender is going to be a really big color this year and blues."
"We are seeing some coloring blocking with white and black and a little bit of floral and some embroidery as well."
Spring shades are changing too, "We are seeing a movement from the large oversized sunglasses to the small round framed sunglasses."
"Kylie Jenner has partnered with key sunglasses which are out of Australia and has designed these fun funky shaped glasses."
A lot of trendy yeses, but what about the no’s, “we are also seeing some trends come back that are a little frightening from year's past. A lot of 90s trends, you're going to see plastic, rubber, those weird space-age sunglasses. I'm telling you, you do not need to buy into all of those trends," Says Williams.
Speaking of buying on a budget, no problem, “I would say a really great place that I’ve been able to find trendy pieces that are designer knock-offs including the shoes I'm wearing is Target."
If you want handpicked items that not everyone in the office owns, "We go with vision in mind to bring in apparel that is not found here in Asheville," says Giangrasso.
Keeping you fashion forward as we spring forward!
