Top Transitional Trends: Winter to Spring
The cold winter weather is still lingering, but spring is just around the corner! Whether you're vacationing or staycationing these last few weeks of winter, here are some bold trends that will have you dreaming of spring.
Reminiscent of the flowers to come! Not only do florals leave us longing for spring, embroidery takes us back to the 90's. Stemming from Gucci's love of embroidery - everything from jeans to handbags, this trend has finally hit the streets. Embroidery can elevate any item, turning simple pieces into beautiful must-haves. This Alice + Olivia "Launa" Embroidered dress is the perfect use of floral embroidery, bringing a simple cocktail dress from dull to daring.
Stripes are one of our favorite trends right now as they give dimension to many of our garments. We carry several stripped pieces at Queen Anna, including Chan Luu's blue and white "Lolita" dress. Stripes carry contrasting powers, giving the appearance of a slimmer or fuller build, depending on how they are placed. They also give contrast in a subtle way. This trend provides many options and it all starts with the simple stripe.
Perfect for a midwinter vacation, the one-piece swimsuit is making a comeback this year! The unspoken swimwear rule of "less is more" has been prevailing over the last several years, making coverage the new standout statement. Add Venice Maillot's "Marysia Swim" swimsuit to your packing list. The yummy bright orange hue will complement your tropical poolside drink.
We love the sophistication of a midi skirt, which is of course why we carry the gorgeous C/MEO Check "We Woke Up" Skirt. The mini, micro mini, and full-length skirt lengths have all come and gone. With the midi skirt falling just below the calf, it's an ideal length for both work and play. Not to mention it's fresh and sophisticated!
At Queen Anna, we are all about bold prints! The C/MEO Ivory Floral "Vanish" Pant from our boutique is definitely for the aspiring trendsetter. The tropical print gives both a playful and striking look, and of course, keeps us dreaming of warm weather destinations.
Who doesn't love denim? Moving beyond traditional jeans and jackets, this Ali & Jay Chambray "Jungle Garden" Jumpsuit provides the denim look with a soft, rich and comfortable feel. Easily dress it up or down with just the switch of shoes and accessories. Customize this effortless spring outfit even further by adding an undershirt, a cozy cashmere duster or an embellished leather jacket for the fluctuating spring temperatures. The possibilities are endless!
Want to add some color to your wardrobe with one simple piece? Meet the season's bright rainbow trend. Thanks to the recent runway shows of Gucci, Chanel, and Giorgio Armani - all designers that incorporated some form of the rainbow pattern into their pieces. Jump in on this trend by pairing Chinti and Parker's "Striped Cashmere" sweater with a leather pencil skirt or your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans.
Whether you're shopping with us at Queen Anna or looking for fashion inspiration, we hope you're as excited for the upcoming season as we are!
We'd love to hear... what trend are you most looking forward to?
