Inspiration: What We Need For Spring

Two days of tepid weather has us beginning to plot our fashion strategy for Summer. Inspiration is everywhere. All we need is a few more days of blue skies and warm weather to put our looks into action.
So, what fashion items are inspiring us while we shop for our summer wardrobe? To start, we are longing for a pastel coat. Pink Chanel seems to be especially perfect this season. Other color options include peach, nude, a light blue gray (think Lanvin blue) and mint green.

We have also fallen in love with Givenchy's floral prints, which are poised to be the most iconic print of the season. The contrast of sweet and dark sets the perfect tone. We also long for an item in vintage Gucci floral print. If you are super into the sweet floral theme, you must check out Dolce & Gabbana's flower sunglasses.

Speaking of prints, Valentino's oversized camo is a huge hit. There so many variations of this print, that we would suggest going with the "look for less"--a non-designer version that will cost you a lot less money. The same advice can be applied to Loree Rodkin's oversized bondage ring. One need not feel compelled to spend $20,000 to enjoy the trend.

Other trends that are catching our attention? City appropriate shorts, dresses with unexpected cutouts, slacks with racing stripes and ethnic jewelry. Do you agree? Share the trends are inspiring your spring wardrobe in the comment section below.
