Spring 2017 is finally here! We had a little taste of it with the warmer weather this weekend in NYC. Soooo who else is ready to shop for Spring?!

I wanted to share some of the TOP TRENDS that you will see all over for Spring 2017. These are details to look for when shopping for pieces to add to your wardrobe in order to stay on-trend with the current season. You can play with these trends and really make them your own like combining multiple trends to fit what works for you! It’s all about balance, you can add a subtle trend or go in head first with a dramatic look.


1) Anything that shows your SHOULDERS. AKA the cold shoulder or off the shoulder tops! Since these sometimes actually leave your shoulders feeling a little, err cold, these are perfect for the Spring and come in a variety of options from a CARDIGAN (fave), DRESS, TURTLENECK, and your classic TOP.
2) RUFFLES are all over (your outfit that is). This trend is the most integrated with all the other styles. You can go for more of a subtle ruffle like HERE or for a more drastic one like HERE. Since you can find a bit of ruff all over, this is the simplest trend to try first.
3) Statement SLEEVES are everything right now. This is probably one of my favorite trends right now; I am OBSESSED (obv see my photos for the sleeves trend). I especially love when statement sleeves are added to a coat like THIS or THIS. Also love adding the sleeves to an otherwise basic sweater like THIS, THIS, or THIS.
4) Add a touch of EMBROIDERY to your jeans or jacket as a cute way to spice up your outfit. I’ve even seen this trend hit denim skirts, overalls, and SNEAKERS. Try jeans with a subtle embroidery detail like HERE or more dramatic like HERE.
5) LACE details are the perfect delicate addition to any look. You can add just a hint like HERE or HERE or get a full on lace top like HERE. Plus – the lingerie look for going out is totally in and the the more lace the better.
6) GINGHAM. Why? Why not? TOPS with this print are all over right now. Try adding gingham in places you don’t normally see it, like swimwear! See a ONE-PIECE HERE and a BIKINI HERE.
7) Add a FUN STATEMENT BAG to any look to add a special POP. I curated a board of some super cute bags HERE. PS; there are a ton of pineapple details!
