Spring Fashion Alert

A look at this season’s most exciting fashion trends and styles


Published:

Winter be gone! With the forecast calling for 80-degree weather this weekend, it’s time to get your spring wardrobe ready.  Here’s what we are loving from the runway to the real world.

These two looks from our spring fashion shoot “Fashion on Deck” showcase the meshy, athletic-inspired fabrics that are very on-trend right now. We’ve dressed them up here, but they could just as easily be paired with bright colorful running sneakers.

We are obsessed with this dress by M Missoni. With hula-skirt fringe, bright pops of color, and an oh-so-tight silhouette, it’s definitely a conversation piece.

In San Diego, every season is bathing suit season. We love this tropical print bikini by Tory Burch. Navy and coral are having a moment, and the combo here is perfection.

The printed short is back this season, with even brighter and bolder styles. J.Crew has a bunch to choose from. Pair with a simple white T or tank.

Your fashion-forward suit deserves an equally stylish counterpart, and we think this will do the trick. Popular swimwear designer Mara Hoffman is now making beach towels in a swoon-worthy collab with Pendleton—not that you needed any help looking good on the sand!
