Style revivals.

Now that we’re nearing the end of the snowy white winter season, many of you are starting to pack away those bulky winter clothes to usher in sundresses, shorts and many of your other spring staples.

Here are some of the style trends you can expect to see when shopping for some new complimentary pieces for your collections:

’70s Style Sophistication

No silly, pack that leisure suit back up.  That puppy’s not coming back….ever.  However, you will see a revival of high-waisted trousers, billowy blouses, bold prints, vibrant colors and the beloved platform wedge.  Mix in some of your boho pieces for a more sophisticated version of the last ’70s revival.

’60s Genteel

This was one of my favorite eras for fashion.  Expect to see comebacks made by full skirts/dresses, belted waists, and square heeled shoes.  Should you need any inspiration from this time period, Edie Sedgwick was glamour incarnate.  After all, she was Betsy Johnson’s ‘It’ girl.

Biker Chic

Biker is this spring’s version of military.  We saw some of this start to creep into the fashion world this past winter with the hot riding boots that were such a big hit.  Now we’re approaching the biker realm at full throttle (no pun intended).  There will be lots of polished leathers, edgy hardware, and motorcycle style pants.  Think Olivia Newton John at the END of Grease.
