Suede is usually in style, but this spring we’ll be seeing a lot more of it. Chloe, Gucci, and Michael Kors have recently celebrated suede on their runways and even though it’s nothing new, the designs and trends are fresh and mouthwatering. We all own suede accessories and suede shoes, but an all over suede look is hot this spring. Camel, beige, pink and royal blue suedes are all beautiful choices. Wearing suede from head to toe is in, including skirts and tops.

We all love denim, but this spring it’s out-of-the-box type of denim that’s in. When choosing denim this spring, don’t just try on jeans; instead, go for a feminine denim dress, a denim romper, denim wedges or a trench coat.  Spring denim should be celebrated in nontraditional ways. Lazovski says she personally likes this trend because the denim purchases you do make will be staple pieces – making them more versatile with items you already have in your closet.

Ballet Inspired Looks 

Lavoski is a self-proclaimed “girlie girl” at heart, so ballet-inspired looks are another favorite of hers.  Soft sensual pinks, creams and whites worn with greys, blacks and baby blues are all acceptable. Most importantly, to get the perfect ballet look, mix and match chiffon with cropped lightweight sweaters. Wear body suites, flowing solid color tops and sheer skirts.  Go for soft, pretty and delicate. These have all been seen on the runways of Valentino, Bottega Veneta & Michael Kors.

The Bucket Bag

Bucket bags are in this spring. Choose one that has structure and holds its shape and have fun with bright colors, studs and fringe, fringe, fringe!


The Seventies are back and the ’70s trends are just as sexy as we remember them. Want a ’70s look? Choose jumpsuits with sexy plunging necklines, high waisted denim, and exaggerated florals. For those that really get into this look, denim overalls, fringe anything and round framed sunglasses will easily give you the hippies look in no time.
