Spring consignment and Valentine’s Day will unite this weekend as we begin the transition to the warmer months. Just in time for the festivities, take a look at some of the hottest spring fashion trends that embody that romantic charm. It turns out romance is in the air even beyond V-Day, as countless spring runway shows featured unconventional lace and edgy florals. Romance is taking on a new role this year as a look that is part sweet and part edgy. It means putting a floral skirt against a fierce black backdrop or adding a leather jacket to your most delicate dress. In a way, these dreamy spring trends are perfect for the experimental edginess of Portland fashion. Women here aren’t afraid to bust out their biker boots or motorcycle jackets, but we also know that many of them like to play with femininity, too. It’s about mixing the softness of delicate fabrics with a bit of toughness, too. It’s also about experimenting with traditionally “girly” looks, reinventing them in modern ways.
Lace is taking on many forms this year, drawing inspiration from playful Sixties looks to the drama of vintage. Here we’ve grabbed a few styles from some of our favorite consignments, from textured to edgier lace patterns.
Among the first designers who come to mind when we think of floral is Dolce & Gabbana, whose influence on spring femininity is second to none. Known for that signature black background with flowers laid atop, Dolce & Gabbana master the New Romantic like no one else. We’ve gathered some of our best pops of floral apparel, all consignments that have been featured at both of our stores.
So tell us, fellow fashion addicts: what are your favorite spring fashion trends? Stay tuned for more upcoming blogs on some of our best consignment goodies. Happy Spring, ladies!
