This month our trendspotter Jill Laine scoured the streets of sunny LA to find what classic trends we can all look forward to wearing this spring and beyond!
Modern Classics for spring
Black and white
Is there a woman alive that doesn’t love the effortless chic of black and white? Whether the mod trend, exaggerated ruffles or classic shapes, this spring offers endless choices to suit your black and white moods. Consider this trend to be your perfect, neutral canvas for a big burst of color in shoes or accessories.
At The Grove, Pia wears a delightfully chic Michael Kors dress with shoulder cut-outs.
What I love about her look: With great fashion, less is truly more. All she needs is a little pair of ballet flats and sunnies with this dress to be picture perfect!
In nature as well as the runway, flowers herald the return of spring. There’s nothing demure or shy about florals circa 2013 — they feature in-your-face, big, bold prints and electric hues. Remember to pair these high drama items with neutrals and other basics to keep your look in full bloom.
On Melrose, Jill wears Prabal Gurung for Target.
What I love about this look: You don’t need to spend a bundle to get the latest trends. This little dress is only $35. The colors and bold print lift us out of our winter doldrums and remind us that warmer temps are straight ahead.
The last few years in fashion have seen a print revolution-slash-evolution, and this spring that bar has been raised even higher. Although I’m completely smitten with prints du jour, these have massive personality (celebrity print-alike: Ru Paul) and are thusly remembered. To keep this look classic, opt to wear these outrageous prints in small doses like accessories.
In West Hollywood, Tosha wears a brightly colored Theodora & Callum printed scarf.
What I love about this look: You can never go wrong with quality basic pieces: a white shirt, black riding boots and jeans. Throw on a scarf in any brightly colored print and voila! It’s modern yet timeless style at its best.
