Glam Slam: The Friday Five — Spring Trends!

Posted:

A blizzard is hitting a lot of the Northeast and the weather isn't even that great out here in SoCal. But that just makes me dream about spring fashion even more!

Here, InStyle shares five fresh spring trends we can all try!

THE TREND: Lace Dresses
In a rainbow array of colors, this flirty look works for day or night. Lace dresses are often either conservative or coquettish, but these strike a lovely balance. Playful colors counter the naughtiness of the lace, creating a sexy attitude that's anything but stodgy. (Just check out Kerry Washington for inspiration!)

THE TREND: Modern Floral
The obvious choice? Delicate flowers. The exciting one? Brooding bouquets set against lush backdrops. Chic and strong, prints give covered-up looks a romantic fairy-tale spin—that's the fresh appeal.

THE TREND: Graphic Black-and-White
There are no shades of gray about this color combination, with its minimalist prints and maximum style. In a complicated world, there's something reassuring about clean, simple black-and-white, especially when it's organized into logical stripes and grids, and figure-flattering vertical planes.

THE TREND: Warm-Weather Leather
With an assist from pretty colors and clever tailoring, leather makes the cut for spring. Now that designers are treating leather as if it were fabric – dyeing it in punchy colors, cutting it into feminine shapes, and draping it in novel ways – the supple skin has taken on a whole new versatility.

THE TREND: Bold Ruffles
Far from fussy, these sculptural touches romance simple silhouettes. Whether they're framing the face or spiraling off the hips, architectural ruffles build the foundation of a dramatic evening look. These stiff, austere waves are more modern than the floppier furls of past seasons, making this feminine detail feel new again.
