From botanicals to lace details, flounces to flourishes, romance is in the air this spring! And, post-pandemic, spring fashion choices have never been sweeter. Pretty pastels, charming silhouettes, and extremely wearable prints that embrace the cottage-core culture feel liberating after a long, cold winter wrapped in corduroys, oversized fisherman’s knit sweaters, and blanket scarves!
Spring’s New Silhouettes
The shape of things to come? According to Vogue, “…the continuation of a Victorian pouf-sleeve is truly for everyone. Whether in a pastoral print like the midi dress by Brock Collection or as a ruffled Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini mini, a voluminous sleeve offers a bold new silhouette.”
Spring Color? There’s No Gray Area!
Nothing quite says spring like a pretty pastel. A few of my personal faves are below. But buttercup yellow is another to try. Ditto any – and every – shade of pink!

- Lavender pants, Alberta Ferretti

Fabulous Patterns Feel Right
Marie Claire’s recent Fantasy Florals article offers an explanation of the season’s floral fetish, “Flowers, which signify new beginnings, peppered the runways at Rodarte (left), Anna Sui, and Erdem. Some designers took an all-over approach by mixing florals head-to-toe.” (After the year we’ve all had, a new beginning sounds oh-so-appealing!) In addition to fab florals, polka dots are another key takeaway.

Other romantic trends to look for this season? Fringe, netting and sweet embellishments. These are just some of my top picks. What are your favorite looks this spring?
