TREND: BOHO CHIC

BOHO CHIC:
This season’s bohemian styles aren’t just for the girl who loves music festivals or beach vacations. Look for more tailored pieces incorporating the trend like embroidery on a jacket or a tribal print pencil skirt. By adding just a touch of bohemian details, you can incorporate the trend without looking too casual (even in your work wardrobe). On the flip side, boho chic is one trend that actually looks good head-to-toe. Don’t be afraid to wear your fringe kimono with a flare leg jean; which is also making a return this season. Layer on necklaces with natural stones to complete the look, as shown with the bohemian floral dress from Alysa Rene Boutique. Boho chic looks best paired with a lace up bootie, a flat “birkenstock” stye sandal or a strappy flat sandal.

FRINGE:
With 70’s and boho chic being a must-try trend, it is no surprise that fringe is the hottest embellishment this season. We’re seeing it on clothing, jewelry, handbags and even shoes. Make sure to keep the fringe to a minimum; only incorporating one piece into your outfit. Nobody wants fringe overload! If you are doing fringe on a top, you can still accessorize, as seen here on the fringe vest found at Alysa Rene Boutique. To keep with the boho look, opt for long layered necklaces. If you feel like a top or coat with fringe is too “young” looking, you can always go for a stylish fringe accessory. You can count on plenty of handbags and shoes with fringe trim to choose from!

FASHIONABLY FIT:
Workout clothes aren’t just designed for the gym; many women are taking these looks to the street! Women on the go find themselves running from yoga to volunteer at school, and they need the outfit to be able to make that transition. You will see jackets in activewear fabrics with more structured details, like this chambray knit jacket and leggings by Eleven by Venus found at Fitness-Culture. Activewear pants will have seaming or zipper details similar to what you would find on an everyday pant. These are pieces you will want to invest in! There is a noticeable difference in the fabric and most importantly the fit and they are worth every penny. As you shop, be aware of some basic guidelines to fitness dressing for your body type. Hourglass figures should pick V or scoop neck and detailing near your midsection to show off your waist. Apple shapes should avoid flared bottoms which will throw off your proportions by adding bulk. Need to create curves? Look for ruching along the sides and pants that have a pop of color at the hips. Pear shapes should wear flared pants to balance and lengthen your shape but don’t do stripes down the sides of the leg which will make your hips seem fuller.

1) Eleven by Venus jacket and leggings with a Fitmark workout bag (Fitness-Culture; 913.940.6620)

TREND: RUFFLES

RUFFLES:
There is nothing more feminine than a ruffle! You will see ruffle details mostly in dresses, but also in shirts and blouses as well. If you are smaller busted, a ruffle at the neckline can add a bit of oomph and give the illusion of a larger bust. Or opt for a strapless dress that features some volume around the chest, like this mint dress from Bella Bridesmaids. Ruffle details down the middle of a dress also provides a slimming effect, by drawing your eye inwards to the smallest part of your waist.

BLACK & WHITE:
You can never go wrong with black and white. These are two colors that are full-proof, flattering, and look great any time of the year. If you are wearing black and white head-to-toe, consider adding a colorful accessory to add interest to your outfit. This is the perfect opportunity to throw on a red coat or that pair of cobalt blue heels that have been hiding in your closet. You will be seeing a lot of black and white prints this season -- everything from windowpane plaid to bold florals to geometric shapes, as seen in this adorable skirt from Etiquette Boutique. Make sure to find the print that is right for your body type. Petite figures should go for smaller prints so they aren’t overwhelmed by the pattern. Taller women can pull off the bolder florals and plaids.

1) Black & white geometric print skirt with black cami and layered necklace; black open-toe leather bootie by DV (Etiquette Boutique; 913.766.8532)

2) Black and white cardigan by JWLA, white cami, black choker with ivory pendant and skinny jeans by Driftwood (EJ’s Boutique; 913.381.8339)

TREND: FLORAL

FLORAL:
Big and bold, or sweet and dainty; we will be seeing florals of all sizes and colors for spring, like this cheery strapless dress found at Etiquette Boutique. Floral prints are great because they can disguise “problem areas” that we sometimes have to deal with! A floral tunic is great at hiding a fuller stomach or love handles. For those with a smaller waist and fuller hips, go for an a-line floral skirt that will highlight that small waist. Also, if you are doing florals on the bottom, make sure to do a solid on the top to balance out the look. No matter what shape or size you are, there will be a floral this season to suit your style.

1) Floral strapless dress with a long tassel necklace and black open-toe leather bootie (Etiquette Boutique; 913.766.8532)

2) Floral tunic, layered necklaces by Julie Zancanelli and taupe open-toe suede bootie (Alysa Rene Boutique; 913.906.9477).

CHOKERS:
Yes, the choker is back! This is not your early 90’s choker; the styles are bigger and bolder and they definitely make a statement. We saw everything from large chain link, to leather or rhinestone pendants cruise down the runways for Spring. Depending on the choker, make sure to choose the neckline of your top or dress accordingly. If you have a pendant, choose an open neckline like a drape front, or a low V to show off the jewelry, as seen here with jewelry from Mackech Jewels. If it is just a choker with no pendant, you can go for a higher neckline.

1) Black leather choker with gold diamond-shaped pendant (Mackech Jewels; 913.221.5037)

MIXED METALS:
Whereas jewelry-wearing used to be all about choosing either all gold or all silver, a new trend in the accessory world is metal-mixing. You’ll find this pairing in stacked bangles, layered as neck chains, dangling from ears or eve in multiple metals appearing on the same piece, like we found in these stylish kaleidoscopes of mixed metals from TallulahBelle’s. Layered up with a mixture of tones and textures, mixing metals creates a statement look with a luxe feel.

1) Steel and Bronze Mixed Metal Necklace (TallulaBelle's; 913.906.9352)

2) Nylon coated steel with sterling silver beads and seed pearls (TallulahBelle's; 913.906.9352)
