Last Sunday, 3/19, I had so much fun hosting the Spring Fashion preview at Bloomingdale’s in Willow Grove, PA. I was so excited to share with everyone some of the best upcoming trends and looks for Spring, 2016. Some of the key ideas shown were, in demand denim and tees, stripes, bare shoulders, lady like dresses, flare jeans and rose quartz being a strong colorway across all silhouettes.

In addition, I showed some of the 100% Bloomies collection. For anyone wondering what that is- More than 100 amazing designers contributed to an exclusive collaboration making pieces that can only be found at Bloomingdales. I love this!! The idea that you won’t be able to find these pieces anywhere else is fantastic. Vince, Theory, Rag and Bone, Maje, Rebecca Minkoff, Tahari, Kate Spade and so many more are featured. If you’re shopping the store, the collections are signed with “100%Bloomies” so you can easily identify them.

I also believe that a lot of these pieces are investments. You can get multiple looks out of them or even transition some into fall. That’s smart shopping in my book! Let’s take a look at some of my faves!

100% Bloomies, RAG&BONE

Stripes are huge this season. I like that you can pair them with just about anything. Below, the Rag & Bone stripe tee and button front denim mini make a darling combo. Paired with the Dolce Vita Tidah clog it gives just the right amount of heel without looking like you’re trying too hard. You can just as easily throw on a flat sandal and make it day time chic.

I love the idea of lady dressing. These two playful frocks can be dressed up or down and lend themselves to woman of all ages and shapes. One thing important to note- both styles are pulled in at the natural waist. This is generally the smallest part of a woman’s frame. Silhouettes like this draw the eye right there and really call attention and make a slim waist line. Both can be dressed up or down like I have shown. Toss on a heel to glam it up or pair with a cute flat or wedge to keep is casual.

Here are those flares I was mentioning! Don’t be afraid. Give your legs instant length and slimness by throwing on a pair of these puppies!
