Macy’s fashion directors have picked several key pieces you definitely want to add to your wardrobe this spring, and I’m here to break the trends down for you:
The Backpack: This is one trend I’ve personally been waiting for to return and it just so happens to be the bag of choice this spring. And forget your childhood knapsack, the new “it bag” has grown up, featuring ornately embellished to sleek supple leathers and preppy canvas.
The Femme Dress & Blouse: Delicate and girly details ruled the spring runways and now you can rock the trend. Feminine dresses and blouses are all about soft fluid details, like ruffles, floral prints and a soft color pallet. Try a bare shoulder dress or top for a new shape—it truly flatters all body types.
The Smart Accessory: Gone are days of ugly gadgets! Say hello to cool and helpful accessories. Whether it’s watches, fitness trackers, wireless headphones or phone cases, the smart accessory means you no longer have to sacrifice tech for style.
The Nude Shoe: I’ve never been able to pull this off in the past, but this season’s new neutral has shades and styles for everyone. The ideal complement to this season’s feminine trend, a nude shoe offers a fresh perspective on the sea of black pumps and booties in your closet. You could even say blush is the new black. The best part is how this shade will pair with almost anything.
The Sneaker: Forget the gym – who knew fashion could be so comfortable? Sneakers take you from grocery store to dinner and everywhere in between. Try pairing it with something unexpected, like a dress and a denim jacket. It’ll work as effortlessly with a great pair of jeans as your more sophisticated looks.
The Statement Jacket: Jackets aren’t just for the office anymore. The same feminine trends that are adorning dresses and tops have found their way into the statement jacket. Freshen up your wardrobe with one of these great pieces. Try a bomber jacket in a soft metallic a pale soft blazer with jeans, a tee and sneakers.
Pearls: For jewelry, it’s all about pearls. Statement earrings, delicate chokers, chunky necklaces and bracelets—you name it! Top off any outfit with your favorite combination. The secret? Don’t hold back! Go ahead and layer them on.
Lucky for all of us ladies, this spring’s must have trends are equally comfortable as they are fashionable. While I wouldn’t recommend throwing on all these pieces at once, go ahead and grab your favorite from each selection and have it on hand to try with some of your favorite staples already in your closet.
