Textures

Whether its feathers, or fringes or sequins textures are big for Spring.Pick up some interesting pieces from the Fall sales that fit into this category, you won’t regret it.




Brights

Crayola brights in classic color blocking are a big trend for Spring as well.You won’t find this specific trend in the sales because it wasn’t trending for Fall. Do pick up some seasonless separates which you can then match with other pieces.




Dark Denim

Stiff raw denim usually in a full look has been seen all over the Spring runways.Pick up a pant or jacket or both from the sales they will come in handy!




Asymmetrical Necklines

There is all sorts of asymmetry going on on the Spring 2018 runways.Look for unusual necklines just make sure that what you choose doesn’t look too wintery.
