STYLE FILES: 7 SPRING TRENDS TO WEAR NOW & HOW

Sun-warmed tones and fresh, bright days are ahead. While it may seem like it quite yet, you can start to feel inspired by the warmer season by infusing some of spring’s trends into your current wardrobes. Ready for it all now? Turn to lightweight fabrics, softer hues, and pretty details to lift your mood.

Here’s how to wear the latest Spring 19 trends.

1. TERRACOTTA ROSE
Earthy and ethereal at once, terracotta rose is the latest flush of colour that just rode into town. Add new life to your weekend style with a brick-hued suede-like jacket or a front-tie sweater paired with your favourite jeans. Alternatively, give the monochromatic trend a try with a soft rose, lace top styled with some coordinating frayed skinnies. Finish the outfit with neutral tan accessories.

2. LIGHT KNITS
With its soft texture and wear-everywhere versatility, a light knit is the ultimate wardrobe staple. The layering cardigan is revamped for this season by a longer length, a cocoon-shaped drape, and a feminine shade of blush pink. For a casual-meets-chic ensemble, turn to a soft knit sweater featuring bold stripes and a flattering boat neckline. Complete the look with some high-waisted culottes or bright-white denim.

3. NEUTRAL FLORALS
Spring is in full bloom with romantic florals presenting some freshness to our latest weekend-approved styles. From morning croissant runs to brunch with the gals, a floral print wrap-like dress is a must-have for its throw-on-and-go ease and comfort. Likewise, add some pep in your step to the farmer’s market with a peplum blouse in a pastel floral. Statement mules and some tortoiseshell sunnies perfectly finish off the outfit.

4. ELEVATED UTILITY
Where effortlessness meets elegance, a utility dress will instantly elevate your style for any road trip (or lunch date) on the horizon. Front pockets and a khaki hue give this shirtdress a sleek feel, while the flattering tie-waist and rolled sleeves offer a few feminine touches. This tunic dress features dolman sleeves, dainty bow details, and looks great paired with loafers and a vacation-ready tote.

5. THE NOUVEAU BATEAU
The nouveau bateau neckline takes on spring as an updated, yet polished detail. Your classic knitwear is refined by this elongated neckline, as well as dainty buttons and a figure-hugging fit. Whether in khaki, bone, or rose, tuck this flattering knit into your most-loved denim to keep it cool yet polished.

6. WESTERN BOOTIES
With its relaxed slouch, block heel, and neutral stone tone, a western-inspired ankle bootie is the ultimate in trans-seasonal footwear. Whether paired with flared pants or those easy-breezy springtime dresses, go west (or to your local coffee shop) in these cool-girl pointy booties.

7. THE UPDATED TRENCH
Layer up for the upcoming showers and transitional temperatures in this season’s refreshed trenches. The updated trench is modernized by a funnel neck, contemporary hood, and sleek zip front. Keeping warm and dry has never looked so chic.
