Rock Spring’s Top Trends — For Less!

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the excitement of fashion week — the lights, the cameras, the clothes. Each season, trends emerge that we can’t wait to borrow from the runway and take to the streets. But even if your budget doesn’t allow for designer splurges, you can get in on the fun. Below, we’ve picked five of the season’s top trends and shown how, with a bit of creativity, you can put them together for a fraction of the price of the catwalk collections that inspired them. So go ahead — scroll on to get inspiration from these looks for less, then head to a Simon near you to bring these styles to your own wardrobe.

Vertical Stripes
This season, the horizontal nautical, Breton, and sailor stripes of seasons past have been turned on their heads — or at least rotated 90 degrees. The elongating pattern of up-and-down stripes was seen across multiple runways, but no one did it better than Missoni. They have, after all, been mastering their stripe game for decades. For the look without the pricetag, we turned to one of our fave haunts for fashion finds: Zara.

Seen at: Missoni

1) FITS Crochet Inset Floppy Hat, available at Nordstrom.   2) ZARA Striped Shirt.   3) ZARA Striped Tote.   4) ZARA Pleated Striped Skirt.

Full-Metal Jacket
Why save your blingiest pieces for a festive occasion when you can make any day a party? From New York to Paris, we saw daytime looks sporting metallics and sequins that were sure to make anyone shine. How can you not feel like dancing when dressed like a disco ball?

Seen at: Louis Vuitton

1) JADED LONDON Metallic Foil Snake Print Leggings, available at Nordstrom.   2) KENDALL + KYLIE Sequin Camisole, available at Nordstrom.   3) BLANKNYC Metallic Faux Leather Moto Jacket, available at Nordstrom.   4) KEDS Triple Kick Platform Sneaker, available at Nordstrom.

Think Pink
Back again after a major moment in the spotlight the past several seasons, pink proves its staying power in shades from blush to bright fuschia. Here, we’re riffing on Victoria Beckham’s tailored take on the trend, but in softer shades of pastel.

Seen at: Victoria Beckham

1) H&M Earrings with Rhinestones.   2) H&M Jacket with Gathered Sleeves.   3) H&M Ankle-length Pants.   4) H&M Viscose Shirt.

Head-to-Toe Florals
Florals, for spring? Maybe not entirely groundbreaking, but this season’s florals were bigger and bolder, and often worn from head (note those petal-powered sunnies) to toe (matching boots, anyone?). Seen at the shows of Marc Jacobs, Dior, Prada, and other fashion favorites, we’ve harnessed flower power for a look that makes a powerful statement — everywhere other than your bank statement, that is.

Seen at: Dolce & Gabbana

1) ZARA Floral Print Kimono.   2) ZARA Floral Earrings.   3) ZARA Floral Print Trousers.   4) ZARA Floral Mules.   5) NY & COMPANY Floral-Accent Sunglasses.

All Denim, All Day
In a nod to quintessential ‘70s style, we’ve seen the return of head-to-toe denim, but with a twist that modernizes it for today. Whether executed in polished dark Japanese ringspun denim or patched together with hardware as shown at Dior, find your own way to make this trend uniquely yours.

Seen at: Dior

1) ZARA Flat Mules with Buckle.   2) URBAN OUTFITTERS Brixton Fiddler Fisherman Hat.   3) ZARA Oversized Authentic Jacket.   4) GAP High Rise Crop Flare Jeans.   5) URBAN OUTFITTERS Zodiac Layering Charm Necklace.
