Stylist Natalie Decleve's Spring Shopping Trends

(Source: Natalie Decleve)New York-based stylist Natalie Decleve (she's held stints at Diane von Furstenberg and Kiki de Montparnasse) can't shake off her Californian roots. "My DNA is bohemian and free-spirited," she says. "I tend to prefer styles that are clean and crisp and minimalist with a feminine flair." Here, Decleve spotlights a cluster of spring trends that you should keep on your radar while shopping for new seasonal pieces.

1. Fringed Everything(Source: Vera Bradley Soft Print Scarf in Clementine Ikat, $38; Tory Burch Molly Bucket Tote, $250)"Fringe is everywhere, from coats to dresses to sweaters," she notes. "You could do a fringe trim on a scarf or a bag. That way, you're involved with the trend because it has impact but it's not necessarily in your clothing."

2. Bold Graphic Prints

3. Pastel Pinks

"If you want to put your toe in the water, you can always start with a pale pink manicure or lip."

4. Statement Flats(Source: Lacoste Women's Rene Prep Lace Up Shoes, $120; Matt Bernson T Strap Flats in Wren Tribal Print, $117, at Bloomingdales)"Flats are legitimately respected now, from glorified Vans to New Balances," insists Decleve. "We're also seeing a combination of Oxfords and platforms. I'm thrilled, because my feet are ready for a break!"
