One of the few benefits of the endless winter we’ve been enduring in New York is the miracle-working benefits of Spring shopping. Gingham, liberty prints, nautical stripes—as mood-lifting as a 70-degree day. Almost!
So before you buy, CC has broken down the Spring trends. First and foremost, blue is the new black, and it looks freshest when worn with white. Inspired by Chinese porcelain, this straight-from-the-Rodarte-runway trend is enjoying serious trickle-down in the children’s market. Ditto with florals—anything garden-inspired goes, such butterfly prints and lady bug appliqués. And shape-wise, the shift is Spring’s most ubiquitous (and versatile) silhouette. Milly’s vintage-inspired prints and Lilly Pulitzer’s updated baroque patterns are so irresistible, we’re almost wondering if they come in women’s sizes.—CC
