Metallics

For the magpie who wants to turn it up in different ways, enter in spring’s shiniest trend- metallic. For the spring, you will find metallic elements in clothing, shoes, handbags, and whatever else you can fashion in this detail. Gold and silver yes, but also check for rose gold and gunmetal hues!

Lace

While you can never have too much lace, for spring it gets a bit bolder, fancier, and daring.  Seen as an accent or head to toe focal point, lace lends itself to a variety of looks this season. You will find lace in tops, jackets, skirts, and suiting and dresses (the casual and formal alike) all being sweet, daring, sexy, and bold.

Sheer Play

Who doesn’t love a game of peekaboo? For spring, sheer layers are one to offer an added layer of sass, style, and panache to any look.  For this spring season, you will see sheer elements inside dresses, as tees and dresses, layered into skirts, and as standalone focal items. To temper the amount of skin you want to show, layer sheer on top of sheer, all in the same hues to play the see through elements down a bit.

Fringe

The flapper or the cowgirl?! For spring 2014, this trend is used to adorn, add drama, and to make a statement. Fringe elements adorn various style and types of garments for the spring season.
