With all of last week's fashion buzz focused on Fall trends from New York Fashion Week, it's easy to forget that Spring actually comes first - and we're about ready to banish the Winter blahs by getting a head-start on spring trends. Here are the five styles we think you'll be after this Spring, and how you can get them now.
Add a peep-toe to your cold-weather bootie and it's basically ready for spring. Pair these peep-toes with skinny pants or your favorite short dress for a cool counterpoint to Spring's floaty fabrics. We like these cut-out and grommet booties by Boutique 9 ($179.95) for their rock-and-roll quality. Plus, you can wear them with colored tights while it's still cool out.
Toned-down feathers are one of our favorite ways to add texture this Spring. You can throw on this breezy feather top from Patterson J. Kincaid ($52) with a pair of sleek skinny jeans and a blazer, or dress it up with a simple miniskirt and pair of sparkly earrings.
Celebrities have been rocking the one shoulder look all over the red carpets, and we're thinking of trading in our standard black dresses for a bright daytime version of this style - this yellow Victoria's Secret number ($68) is sweetly sexy.
Spring lines were full of lacy camis, slips and even tap shorts that might make you question whether they belong over or under your clothes. We'd prefer to just hint at the trend with a lace lined tank like this one ($101.99) - wear it under a blazer or with super dark jeans for a night out.
