My Fave Spring Trends: Maren Roth

I have always and will always love vests, and I couldn't be more thrilled they're making a HUGE comeback. I recently returned from Fall market, and although they'll also be having a major moment this fall, we've begun to bring them in for spring. I'm making them one of my favorite spring trends. As we transition into summer, they're a fantastic alternative to a blazer and can be the perfect addition to any maxi dress for that added piece to create more definition in your ensemble. You'll stay cool and look cool all spring and summer long!

Lace and Laser Cut are two of my favorite trends for spring, so I've mixed them up all in one look. I love the soft color and feminine detail of the lace top, mixed with the laser cut detail in the black shorts, proving you can mix textures and patterns in a subtle, yet complimentary, way. I added a few touches of color with a small coral bag and bright turquoise necklace. As I am constantly on the go, I always have my Ray Ban aviators in my bag!

Neutrals & Printed Pants

As a retailer that absolutely loves neutrals, this is a key trend for me this spring. However, in order to keep things a little spicy, I love pairing a neutral, like this draped jacket, with another huge trend: printed pants. I chose a print that also incorporates neutrals but still allows for a bit of spice with the design. I piled on the accessories, but I kept them neutral in color.

Colorful Leather

Leather is no longer a fall or winter must-have, but it's fast becoming a spring staple. I love that leather is being celebrated and worn all year long! I chose this mint colored Mackage leather jacket because I love pairing soft pastels with an opposite mate, such as a bold bright coral or even a basic black. Although colorful leather can stand on its own, it's really fun to mix it up. After all, what fun is fashion if you can't be playful with it?
