Fashion forward on the First Coast

What’s in for women this spring?


If North Florida is your catwalk, then be sure to style some of these trending prints, colors and fabrics with an all new spring wardrobe. From innovative textiles to maximalist statement pieces, this season is all about forgoing the floral for something a bit more…extra.

If there were two lovers meant for each other, it’s this season’s hot pant trend coupled with animal prints. Florida and short shorts have long been acquainted, however, pairing a pair with layered prints and knee-high boots will take your shorties to the next level. Perhaps try them with a boyfriend blazer for a more refined look, or a patterned belt for an eye-catching way to elevate a lot with a little.

The 60s take the center stage this spring with wallpaper inspired patterns and big, colorful designs. Fluorescent colors are making a comeback for a dramatic way to take on the season. If big and bold doesn’t suit your sensibilities, however, opt for a simple neon accessory to add a pop of color to any look.

Padded headbands are the latest 80s trend to come full circle. To avoid channeling a cast member of “Saved by the Bell,” pair them with a chic, modern outfit and don’t get too matchy-matchy with it. Accessorize with a relaxed look like a French-tucked white tee and jeans, or a flowing skirt and chunky earrings for a great date night vibe that’s feminine and fashionable.

All that glitters is gold this season, thanks to layering chains upon chains. Gold medallions are really making their presence known, giving the look more of a timeworn, archaic look rather than full Mr. T circa A-Team. Make it personalized by shopping for a coin reflective of your zodiac symbol or cultural heritage, (think ancient Grecian currency.)
