Modern Minimalism

With clean lines and streamlined silhouettes taking center stage, the modern minimalism trend is a favorite to replace stagnant wardrobe staples. This season, embrace this pared-back sensibility with crisp neutrals and tailored pieces that aren’t afraid to show some skin. Those craving simplicity and ease should look no further than the season’s chicest mules and trousers.

Romantic Ruching

It’s no coincidence Cottagecore took hold so strongly when it did—this feeling of escapism and romance resonates strongly at the moment. Encapsulate that sense of whimsy via pieces designed with ruched detailing. There’s something exquisitely elegant about gathered fabric. And it translates across pieces from blouses and dresses to handbags and the season’s best sandals.

Preppy Staples

Micro trends like tennis skirts, polos, draped knits, and sweater vests are already making a splash, so expect these preppy staples to continue as weather warms up. Even if you don’t think of your style as country club-inspired, mixing and matching polished items like a crisp loafer with your existing wardrobe is a perfect way to enhance your spring style.

Y2K Nostalgia

With baby tees, cargo pants, and the-brighter-the-better color palettes making a comeback, why not imbue your 2022 style with a nostalgic point of view? A bold pair of chunky slides will do just the trick.
