The Femme Dress & Blouse: Delicate and girly details ruled the spring runways and now you can rock the trend.  Feminine dresses and blouses are all about soft fluid details, like ruffles, floral prints and a soft color pallet. Try a bare shoulder dress or top for a new shape—it truly flatters all body types.

The Backpack: It’s the bag of choice this spring. And forget your childhood knapsack, the new “it bag” has grown up, featuring ornately embellished to sleek supple leathers and preppy canvas.

The Smart Accessory: Gone are days of ugly gadgets! Say hello to cool and helpful accessories. Whether it’s watches, fitness trackers, wireless headphones or phone cases, the smart accessory means you no longer have to sacrifice tech for style.

The Nude Shoe: The ideal complement to this season’s feminine trend, a nude shoe offers a fresh perspective on the sea of black pumps and booties in your closet. You could even say blush is the new black. The best part is how this shade will pair with almost anything.

The Sneaker: Forget the gym! Sneakers take you from grocery store to dinner and everywhere in between. Try pairing it with something unexpected, like a dress and a denim jacket. It’ll work as effortlessly with a great pair of jeans as your more sophisticated looks.

The Statement Jacket: Jackets aren’t just for the office anymore. The same feminine trends that are adorning dresses and tops have found their way into the statement jacket. Freshen up your wardrobe with one of these great pieces. Try a bomber jacket in a soft metallic a pale soft blazer with jeans, a tee and sneakers.

Pearls: For jewelry, it’s all about pearls. Statement earrings, delicate chokers, chunky necklaces and bracelets—you name it! Top off any outfit with your favorite combination. The secret? Don’t hold back! Go ahead and layer them on.

The Khaki Suit: It’s this season’s go-to when the mercury starts to rise. Whether paired with a tonal shirt and tie or a white tee and sneakers, this is warm weather dressing made easy.

The Chino: This season, the chino has been re-engineered with stretch and performance capabilities, a trimmer fit and weathered shades of color.

The Loafer: Consider showing a little ankle when wearing this season’s coolest shoe trend, the loafer. It works as effortlessly with a khaki suit as it does with jeans and a button down collar shirt, creating the ideal balance between polished and casual.

The Button Down: A classic menswear staple returns to our list of must-haves. The button down collar shirt is updated for spring with fabrics that stretch and breathe. Embrace the refreshing range of color!

The Striped Tee: When the mood says spring and the skies indicate otherwise, layering the striped tee under your favorite woven shirt, blazer or coat creates an Instagram worthy snapshot of warmer days ahead.

The Slicker: When it’s too warm for a coat, but too cool or wet without an extra layer, the slicker is the go-to outerwear of choice. This is the essential layering piece and new this season is a wide range of colors and prints, including floral, camouflage and stripes.
