New York-based stylist Natalie Decleve (she's held stints atDiane 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

“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

“Picasso-like renderings on fabrics that have a painterly feel to them are another big statement trend," says Decleve. "Opt for a sweater with a graphic print that you can tuck into a skirt."

3. Pastel Pinks

“The comeback of pale pink—romantic and feminine—is interesting, because we haven’t seen it in a long time,” says Decleve. “If you want to put your toe in the water, you can always start with a pale pink manicure or lip.”

4. Statement Flats

“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!”
