    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.

    Get excited, our spring items will be available on our website March 1, 2018.

    Transition with Style

    Fall is a season of transition. Light summer clothes are replaced with heavier fall layers, sweaters are needed in the mornings and probably again at night, the leaves are changing from green to an array of autumn colors, and care-free summer days are sadly turning back into long hours of work.

    Besides the change in temperature one of the most prominent characteristics of fall is the break out of sweaters and light knits. For the first few weeks, it’s easy to get away with topping an outfit with a sweater but eventually we have to ditch our sundresses and sandals and start wearing pants and several layers.

    Of course, we all want to make a smooth transition without losing our easy, breezy style. So here at Krimson Klover, we came up with some tips to mastering the change of seasons.

    1. Don’t ditch color. Keep bringing in pops of fun colors to your daily outfits through prints and patterns. Search for those subtle sweaters with vibrant yellow or blue mingled into the print.
    2. Wear skirts! Don’t lose that luxury of just throwing on a dress, try to supplement that ease with skirts. Dress them up with sleek materials or down with simple tops. Skirts have the ability to be our most versatile item in the fall, there are endless possibilities with a skirt. 
    3. Start pulling in those great accessories! Add some flare to a simple sweater with a bold statement necklace or a chunky scarf, and dress up your plain pants with a nice belt. Don’t forget that shoes can pull an outfit together, find a pair of boots or flats that can take a plain jane outfit and make it a head turner.

    Keep having fun with your outfits and you’ll never lose that summer spirit!

    Our favorite fall item is the Palisade Skirt. It is a wonderful transitional piece, with a variety of color options; spruce, nutmeg, and charcoal. There are infinite outfit options with this singular skirt.

    One of our favorite looks is the Palisade skirt in spruce with the Wild Hearts V-neck sweater in spruce as well. Tossing the Duet Mohair Infinity scarf in citron on top brings more of a bold flare to this easy autumn ensemble.

    Another option with the Palisade skirt is to pair the Nutmeg skirt with the Snow Globe Dolman Sweater in Bordeaux. And then opt for some nice brown boots and the Duet Mohair Infinity scarf in Almond.

    Our Fall Style Guide - Intern Edition

    We don't want to brag, but we here at Krimson Klover, have had the two best summer interns, Lindsey and Andrea, a company could ask for. We've tasked them with a bit of everything from measuring specs to monitoring social media and they've taken it all in stride.

    Meet Our Interns

    Lindsey

    Marketing Intern, Junior at University of Connecticut

    • Major: Communications & Sociology
    • Style: East coast prep
    • Favorite Look: Easy summer dresses

    Andrea

    Product Development Intern, Senior at Colorado State University

    • Major: Apparel Merchandising & Marketing
    • Style: Everything and anything
    • Favorite Look: Ponchos and black skinnies

    Our final assignment for them was a fun one. We asked them to take their favorite Krimson Klover pieces from our Fall 2016 Collection and style it how they would wear it. We absolutely love what they came up with!

    Clockwise (left to right): (1) Lindsey wears the Selena Swing Skirt paired with a comfortable chambray shirt. She accessorizes the outfit with our Aspect Scarf, a staff favorite. (2) Andrea rocks the hand-painted Urban Sprawl Poncho with black leggings and booties. After all, this is a favorite look of hers. (3) For a fresh look, Andrea pairs our Editor Pencil Skirt with a white T, denim jacket and sneakers. Not only is she on trend, but she's comfortable as she treks across campus for class. (4) In her typical east coast fashion sense, Lindsey wears a chambray dress, belted with our Bennington Long Sweater and flats. To complete the look, she adds big sunglasses.

    We absolutely loved their young energy in the office this summer and wish them all the best of luck on their next adventure.

    Mother's Day Gift Guide

    Mother's Day Gift Guide

    Give your mom the gift of style this Mother's Day with a Krimson Klover Gift Card available in $25, $50, $100 and $200 values. Upon purchase, an email will immediately be sent to her inbox with a thoughtful, personalized note from you letting her know that she's beautiful inside and out!

    Mother's Day is May 10th! Brunch and flowers again?! We've got a bouquet of better ideas.

    We know you didn't mean to wait so long but it's okay, you can still find the perfect present for mom without breaking a sweat or breaking the bank. Just follow the links below to find a suitable gift and have it delivered straight to her inbox. Simple. Convenient. Thoughtful. Done. After all, mama didn't raise no fool!

    1. Legacy Box is the answer to all of those VHS tapes, photo albums and film reels that are collecting dust in the attic when they should be your mom's next #tbt posts for years to come. She'll love sharing all those precious memories. You've been warned!

    2. Spotify is just one of the many music streaming options available to entertain us these days. Give mom the upgrade that she would never buy for herself and silence those pesky ads. If she's not into streaming music maybe there's a concert coming to town that would be more her jam. Purchase a set of tickets and make it a date. Experiences are always the best gifts.

    3. Club W is a great way to give the gift of great wine. Gone are the days of white zinfandel from a box. It's time to say "yes way!" to rosé. 

    4. Out of Print Clothing is perfect for the bibliophile. They've got your mom's favorite books in wearable fashions from T-shirts to tote bags. Or you could give her beautiful hard cover copies of the classics. Make it an annual gift and start building her a library that is as sophisticated as she is.

    5. 101 Cookbooks is a blog written by Heidi Swanson who chronicles her cookbook obsession collection and turns out some great recipes. If mom loves to cook, Heidi could very well be her new culinary cohort. Introduce Mom to Heidi's blog and consider one of Heidi's books or an item from her favorites list as frosting on the cupcake.

    6. Paperless Post is a great way to spread cheer without the need for stamps. Just go to the Paperless Post website, pick out an online design, customize it for that special someone and email it directly to them instantly. This is way better than scouring the sad, picked-over drugstore card selection.

    7. Artifact Uprising allows you to convert your digital images into awesome photo displays, calendars and albums. All moms love to show off their kids, grand kids, pets and travels. Printing pictures is now back in style and it's a whole lot classier than the 1-hour photo drop. Create a calendar or photo book featuring mom's favorite people. She will probably cry so have the tissues handy.

    8. Grow Journey is a subscription box for moms with a green thumb. Purchase a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription and inch by inch, row by row and month by month mom will grow her garden and her seed collection with certified organic heirloom seed varieties. It's the perfect time of year to spoil the gardener. If she's not a vegetable gardener, consider a gift card to her local garden center where she can find her favorite flowers for spring planting.

    9. The Arts in all it's forms is not only a great way to spend the day, but Arts and Culture are always a great cause to support. Make mom a patron of the arts by purchasing a membership or making a donation in her name. Maybe it's a local museum, theater or symphony. Whatever mom's interests, get her involved on a regular basis by getting her an all access pass.

    We hope you get to shower your mom with hugs and kisses this Mother's Day and if you're a proud momma yourself, have a wonderful day filled with love and laughter.

    Happy Mother's Day from the Krimson Klover Team!
