Coming off of six months when it’s been the norm to gravitate toward thick knits, heavy jackets, and practical layers, springtime finally allows us to shed what’s kept us all wrapped up, shake off the doldrums, and slip into pieces that strike the ideal balance of lightness and bold style. And according to the buyers at Bergdorf Goodman, this attitude can be succinctly summarized in a handful of refreshing spring trends. Below, take a look at a few of the most highly anticipated themes of the season, including exemplary pieces that’ll breathe new life into your closet now.
For those who appreciate a powerful, tailored look, this spring’s abundance of lines and checks — appearing on structured, workwear-inspired silhouettes — is a must-try. In light, fresh colors, these graphic details appear on shorts suits and miniskirt sets that can be worn with the top and bottom together for a polished look or deconstructed in a more dressed-down way.
If there’s one color palette that traditionally defines spring, it’s pastels in shades of green, pink, peach, et al. So it’s only fitting that the season’s signature saccharine hues are making a return, this time compounded with feminine, understated silk gowns and frillier halter dresses alike.
Last year’s prairie dressing comeback continues on strong into 2019 with the appearance of eyelet fabrics, ruffles, and an inclination toward longer hemlines. Welcome back these pastoral pieces in the form of a finely detailed top or commit to the trend with a handkerchief dress.
Just Add Spice
It’s not “officially” spring until things start to warm up, literally. This year, the same theory applies to color-watching, too. Channel the long-awaited return of sun-soaked days by embracing this season’s rich red and yellow tones across dresses, shoes, and accessories.
