Yes, I understand that Punxsutawney Phil is a rodent, and not a meteorologist. But was I the only one happy he predicted an early Spring? I’m ready for tribal prints, shorts, sleeveless sheaths, single-sole sandals and pumps, chic mix-and-match patterns, seersucker and linen!
We’ve already told you Emerald Green is 2013′s signature color, but if you’re ready to spring forward fashion-wise, here are the top ten looks for ladies and gents suggested by Arlene Goldstein (Belk‘s Vice President of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction) at their recent Spring Fashion Tour:
Women’s Most Wanted:
- Bold-print dress (tribal prints are so NOW)
- Silky top
- Spring jacket (how about a soft motorcycle jacket?)
- Fancy pant (try a cropped length in a super-chic pattern!)
- Fashion wedge (give your platforms a rest this season!)
- Novelty knit
- Something lacy (so ladylike!)
- New tote (Michael Kors has some great options)
Men’s Most Wanted:
- Slim-fit jean (ahem…not skinny)
- Novelty short
- Preppy shoes (time to break out the boat shoes, fellows)
- Prominent patterns
- Prepster ties (prepare to see knit ties return!)
