Gear up for Spring with HQ’s new fashion section.
Spring ... the season of rising temperatures, singing robins and blooming flowers all imparting new beginnings – and new life to every woman’s wardrobe. As Spring arrives, most of us women begin analyzing our closets to give validation to current items. While spring is a time for rejuvenation, don’t jump the gun on removing all sweaters and fall colors. The 2015 spring season (SS15) trends are accepting of almost all color tones and hues of the color palette. The SS15 runway shows have top designers featuring everything from bold colors with color blocking details at Balmain and Alexander Wang to monochromatic looks in pale pastels at Balenciaga and BCBG Max Azria, as well as decadent rich fall colors with retro vibes at Saint Laurent and Gucci.
So, what’s a woman to do with all of these choices of color? Be creative. Mix seasonal wardrobes together. Hold over some of those lightweight sweaters and fall-colored skirts and trousers, then make a list of items you need to complete a look for SS15.
The following are highlighted trends of SS15: gingham print; kimono; ’70s-inspired and high-waist pants; suede and fringe; all black and white combinations, as well as blue and white; jogger pants and culottes; monochromatic detailing; midi-length skirts; urban military chic; and lastly, the obi belt, which is a knotted belt around the waist.
To make things easier for the local fashionista, you can shop the following looks I’ve put together for SS15 from Huntington’s local boutique, Village Collection. Until next season, enjoy!
