STYLE FILES: SPRING’S TOP TRENDS

Here are the top 6 trends of the season.

1. POLKA DOTS
This playful print is popping up everywhere, and for good reason. Classic, feminine, and fresh, polka dots are giving new life to our favourite spring dresses and blouses. Elevate your workwear-to-weekend closet with this twirl-worthy shirtdress and some chic black accessories. Alternatively, connect the (style) dots with this polka dot blouse paired with sleek white culottes and a chain belt.

2. TRANSPARENT BAGS
The IT accessory of the season, it’s clear that the Lucite bag is here to stay. With its neutral patent insert, this transparent tote will look great paired with a pop of bold colour. Alternatively, make a cool statement with this snakeskin option that can be worn with either your business suit or night-out jumpsuit. Complete your look with matching transparent heels.

3. MULES RULE
Razor-sharp mules in spring-ready textures and prints are the easiest way to turn up any look this season. Turn to a sleeker silhouette with a pointy toe and slanted heel, such as this mule. For something a little more sartorial, try this high vamp option or this Mary Jane-inspired style on for size. Pair this chic shoe with some wide leg trousers or your favourite spring dresses.

4. IN NEUTRAL
Build your spring style around the colours you can always count on. When creating a capsule wardrobe, stick to timeless hues that can be worn in a multitude of outfit options. When in doubt, go for the basics. Pieces such as this tan wrap coat, this flowy dress, and this dolman sleeve sweater are classic and will still work for years to come. Finish off the neutral vibe with loafers and an oversized tote.

5. BLACK & WHITE FLORALS
Because some things in life are just better in black and white. Step up your style game in this winning duo with this floral dress. Contrast against the graphic print with a pair of cool metallic fan earrings. Give your social occasion dressing a sharp update with this stunning culotte jumpsuit. Complete the ensemble with Lucite heels.

6. WHITE OUT
Clean head-to-toe white makes everything look brand new. Bridal shower, bachelorette or garden party, this white one-shoulder dress is flattering, sleek, and effortlessly elegant. Alternatively, this crisp white vest and trousers duo is the newest in power pairings for both the office and beyond. Go full-on monochrome with a neutral heel and mini clutch.
