Spring is in full bloom, and the sun is beginning to beam down. If you want to stay chic while keeping the weather in mind, we’ve mapped out spring runway trends to make shopping on-trend easier. This season, designers are featuring whimsical florals, sheer fabrics and geometric prints. Keep your wardrobe fresh this spring!
All About the Sleeves
One staple in many runway shows this season was bold and fun sleeves. Some designers created puffy, 80s-inspired shoulder sleeves, while others went for a more angular approach. Designers like Michael Kors and Oscar de la Renta added daring sleeves to make a statement and to keep outfits interesting!
It’s safe to say that bright colors are a continuous fad of spring fashion. This season, designers chose shades of pink to keep their designs on point. From fuchsia to baby pink, the clothing on the runways were works of art. Designers like Jeremy Scott, Leanne Marshall, and Monique Lhuillier sparked up the runways with pink, pink and more pink.

Wrap your Robes
For the days that feel a little chillier than average, grab a robe to warm things up. Surprisingly featured on the runway this season was robes on robes on robes. There were plaid robes, from Band of Outsiders, silky robes from Jonathan Simkhai, and fluffy robes from Lacoste.
Stripes, Stripes, Stripes!
Keep your style geometric this spring with the stripe trend seen on the runways. Stripes are a great way to mix up your style. Try black and white for an edgy feel or colorful for a more playful look. Milly and Lacoste chose sideways and plaid for their own take on stripes.
For spring nights out and to show a little extra skin in the heat, try the deep-v seen all over the runways. Some designers, like Michael Kors, went for deep v’s in wrap dresses and some, like Chrisyian Siriano, went for a beachy deep v. There are dee
