Sensible silhouettes are bolstered with intense energizing prints. Tie-dye, retro prints, flashy florals and flamboyant paisleys enliven the assortment. There’s an array of uplifting armor this season. Strong, comfortable, feel good items will save the day. Nordstrom Fashion Director Shannon Schafer highlights this season’s must-have fashion trends:
“Confident suiting continues this spring with a feminine twist. Tailoring can be soft and relaxed, or sturdy and shapely. Waist emphasis and soft materials such as silks, linens and crisp cottons evolve the masculine look of a blazer. Try layering a soft blouses under tailored pieces for the perfect feminine-masculine mix.”
“There’s power in pretty this season. Soft dressing evolves with the importance of the romantic dress. Modest dress silhouettes provide sensuous volume and comfort with long sweeping lengths, high necks and long sleeves. Florals, from demure to daring, evoke the female spirit.”
“Touches of craft and folklore conjure rustic romance for bohemian expression. Craft texture and beautiful textiles add dimension to classic items and simple silhouettes. Sturdy workwear is paired with rustic romance for a fresh look.”
