      2018 Spring Trends

      2018 Spring Trends

      Despite the recent snow here in Colorado, we are getting excited for Spring! We wanted to give you a sneak peek into our Spring 2018 line and talk about upcoming spring trends.

      The first trend we are particularly excited about is Tropical Inspiration. You’ll see lots of beautiful and bold flashes of color interwoven through intricate floral designs this spring season. The twist: these designs aren’t your typical floral design or Hawaiian shirt look, they have a tropical inspired abstract twist to them that is booming in the fashion world. Our Spring ’18 line will feature several different pieces with tropical inspiration such as scarves, ponchos, tunics, swing skirts, and halter tops. Some examples are the Skimmer Swing Skirt, Zaharra Tunic, and Flamenco Dress. Shown below, these pieces are a perfect example of a pop of vibrant color for any spring day or the seamless-looking resort wear outfit.

      Another trend you'll see this spring and will create lots of talk this season is Feminine Detailing. You'll see a lot of geometric mosaic designs crisscross strap detailing and bell-shaped sleeves. The pleats flounces, and ruffles in pieces this spring are going to be very popular and sought out for. These small and subtle features are the perfect surprise to pieces that you all already love. This trend can be spotted in our Joni cardigan, Rey halter top, and Arlo sweater, shown below. The intricate layering at the bottom of the Rey halter creates a flowering and flattering look that can complete any outfit this spring. Pleated detail is another feature you’ll find this season which creates an ultimately slimming look that we can’t get enough of.

      When it came to creating an overall look this coming Spring season, we think it is more than necessary to have Everyday Basics available. These pieces can be paired with just about anything to create a sought-after outfit. We wanted to re-invent the closet staples and give these pieces little surprises. By adding small details such as keyhole cutouts, ribbing details, and pointelle stitching, we are able to keep the look simple and at the same time create a sense of uniqueness. The combination of timeless tones and revamped classics with unexpected detailing, we have the perfect go-to pieces for you this season. Our basics are the Capitol T-shirt and Suki halter dress.  The Suki has pointelle stitching around the neck and pleating in the back adding unexpected details to this solid dress.

      Performance Knits are a huge focus for us this Spring.  Our knit pieces fit nicely into everyday lifestyle looks. Adding structural texture along with elasticity, strength, durability, and breathability, these pieces will help you complete your active and sporty lifestyle wardrobe. We had a feeling we would be seeing this trend all over this season and we are beginning to see we were correct.  The stripes and clever rib placement on these pullover tops, create a sporty look that can easily be transformed into casual looks just by switching up the items you pair with it. Made from viscose, which is a naturally derived fiber from a wood pulp, in these performance pieces gives them the strength and resistance to abrasion making them breathable and dependable. The Harbor Hoody and Britt Tank are a few of our favorite performance knits for Spring.

      The spring trend that really intrigued us this season was the Laser Cut and Mesh look. This has been very popular featuring graphic geometrics with high contracts and negative/positive space. It’s the new and modern take on the traditional feminine lace, giving it an updated and fresh look that is unmistakable. The precision peekaboo’s and pointelle holes create a twist on our popular silhouettes. We had fun with this one because it is such an intricate and delicate process. The Jasmine Dress and Pepper Skort are perfect examples of the laser cut trend within our line. Dress them up or down, they are ready to go from the park to dinner with the family.

      Versatility and functionality is a trend we can get behind, everyone loves a good “Athleisure” outfit. Who doesn’t want to be comfortable yet in style? Everyone loves a high functionality piece that they can always rely on for a day of spontaneous adventure. These pieces are perfect for when you don’t know what is coming your way, but you want to look great and be prepared. Including a bold color palette and your classic red, white and blue palette, you can go for either look to go along with your fast-paced lifestyle.

      Lastly, this Spring we added a few Nautical Inspired pieces. With billowing stripes and classic color palettes, this look is perfect for any spring day paired with any of your favorite solid pieces. Timeless horizontals and innovative mashups with the striping are essential for the nautical style.  Check out our Leia pullover, Dorothy Dress, and Abella Scarves.
