It’s time to start bringing out some of the many gorgeous looks spotted during Fashion Week; slowly, but surely. Don’t worry, in a few more weeks you’ll be able to enjoy all of these spring fashion trends in full blown fashion.

High Waisted Denim

Ultrachic and ultrahigh, a must have in your spring closet is high waisted denim! It will become your new closet staple to flatter your frame and elongate your legs. Plus a good pair of jeans can take a girl anywhere. On your next very long lunch break, hit up the Galleria Mall and test a few out before you buy to make sure the fit it not to high, but just right.

Large Statement Rings And Earrings

The runways may scream statement earrings, but our fashion expert just can’t stop buying more and more statement rings for the Spring. Whether it’s the earrings or the rings, it really is about having something pop and stand out. Think large rocks, asymmetrical, clashing colors and mismatched beads – the beauty is in the irregularity. Check out local design A.R. Designers in her spring collection, for some great eye catching styles and colors.

Our fashion expert first noticed the shade on The Bachelor, so she’s not the only one finding just the right shade that is love at first sight.

The Beanie

One fashion trend for spring that’s for both men and women, old and young. The beanie is all spring. Keeping with the minimal look, pick a neutral color like black or grey, possibly even maroon, and go for that smart street look.
