Warm-weather styles go bold with prints and plaids.

Spring fashion will remind you of how much you enjoy stepping out. We appreciated doing that to shoot the latest trends with the edgy and artistic backdrop of the new Gravity complex in Franklinton.

If this season teaches us anything about fashion, it’s that we must overcome our fears of mixing patterns. Graphic prints, floral fiestas and plenty of reptile replicas give a nod to the ’70s. Couple this print-palooza with the blurring of gender lines—boxy cuts are debuting in women’s jackets and more posies and pastels are available for men—and you’ve nailed the new fashion trends. Reptile prints for handbags, jackets and belts reign supreme, and spring booties are a certain thing.

From professional, wide-leg slacks and plaid blazers for women to double-breasted, three-piece suits for men, there’s plenty to learn about the new fashion era. As we dive into the season’s spirit of a well-deserved renewal, springtime looks are versatile and vibrant—whether you are heading into the office, celebrating a holiday or gathering with friends.
