Another season of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has come and gone, and even though I'm aching to engage in my own autumnal shopping spree (i've missed you beanies, armwarmers, parkas and peacoats), I'm thoroughly excited to bring you all of my favorite trends that you can look forward to sporting come springtime/summer of next year.
It was nice to see that a number of recurring warm weather trends are still going strong, i.e. sporty chic, white on white, sheer delights... but here are the fab four trends that I will be all over come April.
Garden Party: Tea for two. I'm a sucker for a floral feminine frock, so I'm happy to report that you'll be seeing some ever so flattering floral prints blossoming everywhere, perfect for an outdoor wedding, bridal shower or brunch. Someone get this girl a mimosa. Look: Tory Burch
Belly Pride: If you've got the abs, flaunt 'em. The bare midriff trend is sticking around for another season, so crop it if you got it. Hint: Keep it classy with longer, more refined skirts. Look: Michael Kors
That 70's Show: Find your inner Farrah/Linda Lovelace with sexy decade inspired day dresses, high retro waisted denim, bell bottoms, 9 to 5 secretary bow-tie blouses and more Halston friendly throwbacks. Look: Michael Kors
Mint Julep: When it comes to spring shades, I like my color palette like I like my ice cream: cool, sweet and minty all over. Hold on to the mint chiffon blouse you wore all season long last year, because this pretty pastel hue is back with a vengeance. From chic dresses and cardis to nails, pumps and statement necklaces, add a pop of pistachio wherever you can get it and you'll look good enough to eat*. Look: Rachel Zoe
