Recently Rochelle and I attended the Anthropologie Spring Fashion Show. It was a chic event with lots of inspiration for spring must haves. I want to share some of my favourite looks from the fashion show and how you can incorporate pieces into your daily wardrobe. By the way, in mid-May the High Park cherry blossoms will be blooming which is a wonderful opportunity to get out and enjoy the warm weather.
Look #1: Stripes
We noticed that stripes made a reoccurring appearance in Anthropologie’s fashion show. Usually I associate the stripe pattern with t-shirts and sweaters, but as it turns out stripes also look great on skirts and blazers. I will definitely keep an eye out for that.
Look #2: Ruffles
I always found ruffles to be a bold statement but they don’t necessarily need to be obnoxiously flamboyant. My favourite way to approach ruffles is with silk textured fabrics.
Look #3: Pastel Pants
For me spring will always be the time to rock pastel clothing. I like to be bold with my looks by experimenting with pastel pants. To date I own a wide array of colours and I’m not stopping there quite yet.
Look #4: Shirts
I was surprised to learn that it is possible to incorporate white shirts into a casual outfit. Personally, I always associated white coloured shirts with job interviews or school uniforms. Having an array of these in my closet, I look forward to pairing them with cropped jeans or my pastel coloured pants and adding simple jewelry to finish off the look.
Look #5: Mesh and Pleats
Reading through Elle magazine and looking through my photos from the fashion show, I noticed that mesh is making an appearance. More importantly, pleats are coming back into style which makes me happy as half of my dress collection is pleaded fabric. Time to dust off and rock those pieces.
These are some of the trends I noticed at the Anthropologie fashion show and I hope this post will help you navigate the spring season in style.
Let me know what you are excited to wear this spring.
