The Motor City has always been known for bringing new and bold looks to the world, and when it comes to spring fashion trends, these five shops are on top of their game with new items that welcome the return of warmer weather. Whether you are looking for new shoes, floral prints or a new purse, you will find something refreshing in the area.

Dazzling Daniela
424 S. Main St.
Plymouth, MI 48170
(734) 404-6399

Spring fashion encompasses the entire body, and one of the big looks this year at Dazzling Daniela are trendy heels. Medium-height heels, accenting the legs with looks that stun and colors that dazzle are blossoming this spring. Some of the looks are flowers that match with colored skinny denim or sling back heels that are perfect for a night out at the club or casino. The pros at Dazzling Daniela will help you find the right look for spring.

Bella Mia
535 Forest Ave.
Plymouth, MI 48170
(734) 656-0057

At Bella Mia, the look is all about dresses and skirts that show the colors of spring. Light blues on a “lost striped” dress and a coral necklace announce the return of warmer weather and colorful blooms. Also on the list at this small shop is a printed bird dress that will remind everyone who sees it that spring is here. For a more casual look, it seems that denim is back, and not only in slacks. At nearly every boutique, you will find denim jackets, but at Bella Mia, the selection of styles and the helpful staff will help you find the look that is you.

Willow Tree Fashions
3000 Biddle Ave.
Wyandotte, MI 48192
(734) 282-8231

For women, one accessory that is always important and can drastically change a look is the envelope-style purse. There are new colors and prints or straps that remain hidden until needed, while others are used in the basic way as a simple clutch. According to the fashion pros at Willow Tree, another new look is printed blazers for woman ranging from elegant floral designs to mixed graphics. Not only do they look fresh and new, but they offer a way to truly add new life to some of the understated fashions most women have in the closet. The best part is these blazers will work great for a new spring look and will remain fresh well into summer.

Chelsea Menswear
2944 Biddle Ave.
Wyandotte, MI 48192
(734) 282-7755

When it comes to what is new for men this season, one stop at Chelsea will give you the chance to discover that firsthand. One of the new trends for spring are slacks in different colors ranging from white to red and, believe it or not, plaids. Also trending is the way slacks are cut, both slimmer in the look and in the legs, all to show off the taper of the slack and to bring attention to men’s shoes. This trimmer look is also taking place in men’s jackets, which are being cut a bit shorter and trimmer.

323 S. Main St.
Royal Oak, MI 48067
(248) 548-2980

New this spring at Incognito is a light and airy Cambridge-print dress that will say spring whenever someone sees you wearing it. Also following the trend in denim is a “truckers” vest that is cut to the feminine form that brings a whole new and sexy look to what denim can do. For a whimsical look, there are the Cat Noire socks with the trademark black cat graphic that will add a unique look to any pair of shoes they are matched up with.
