As we bunker down and head towards the winter months, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll be wearing once you’re able to strip off the puffy jackets and long johns. To help you get your closet prepped for warmer month, here’s a look at the most popular trends you’ll be seeing this spring.
Blazers will be layered over every ensemble, from ball gowns to blouses. Alessandra Rich’s tweed blazer shows that grey is not a boring color, while Off-White brings some bounce to blazers with a funky ruffle on the side. Veronica Beard and Brandon Maxwell show that blazers are not just for stuffy suiting, while Maison Kitsune’s golden metallic blazer is perfect for parties.
