Top Five Trends for Spring

After another work-from-home snow day today, my shovel and I have had just about enough of winter. Unfortunately that infamous groundhog has called for another six weeks of winter, so it will be a little while until things thaw out. But, a girl can dream, can't she? I decided to round up my favorite trends for spring 2015, which I'll be incorporating into my wardrobe as soon as I can retire my repertoire of sweaters.
Normcore: Dubbed the anti-fashion statement, this trend is decidedly mainstream. The goal is to wear items with mass appeal—Nike sweatshirts, McDonald's emblazoned bags, Adidas track pants—in a way that is chic and fresh. Challenge accepted. Image
Ah, the shirt dress. I couldn't be happier that this universally flattering fit (a favorite of my Grandmother's in the 50s) is making a comeback. Image
Gingham was seen all over the spring runways (DVF, Altuzarra, Oscar de la Renta), and it's one of the easiest trends to incorporate into your wardrobe. Dorothy would approve. Image
Head-to-toe white can seem a little intimidating (especially if you're like me and tend to spill everything), but I've always liked the idea of it. Start with baby steps: white jeans + beige blouse, and work your way to total white-out. Image
Last, but not least, the 70s are making a return in the form of retro lapel shapes, flowy blouses, fur, fringe, contrasting color combos... Sign me up. Image
