So we've covered the wardrobe essentials you need this spring, what you definitely need to stop wearing, and today you're getting your dose of what's in and out for spring 2015, and the hot trends to try.
(Image coming. ) Spring 2015 will be bursting with color and pattern. So you're not caught wearing it wrong, keep reading.
New York Fashion Week wrapped last week.
For Fall 2015. So what's on the runways is fall fashion; what's on the street is late winter/early spring style. The big scene stealers are no longer the runway shows, but the street style bloggers and fashion industry people like magazine editors and my niece who works at Cosmo. Yep, she's kind of a big deal. What I watch for are the big trends that are on the rise, and of course what my niece wore, because she's very cool. It was very, very cold in NYC, so mostly what we saw were coats. But trust me, I know how to extract what's coming for spring just from that.
Let's start with what's making headlines as being on trend for spring 2015. But I am here to tell you these trends are decidedly out for me for spring 2015.
Thanks but no thanks. I had enough of these in kindergarten.

Thanks but no thanks. Saw enough navels in the '90's.
(Image coming.) I love ya, Kate. But this is not your classy garden party outfit.
Sneakers and trainers, yes. Official basketball uniform high tops, no.
(Image coming.) High tops, we're just not that into you.
Here's what's decidedly in for spring 2015. (All these trends will be shoppable inside March's Style Vault, going live March 1!)
Tassels are the new fringe.
Fringe is still in, but tassels are def having a moment. (Get your tassel on with the turquoise tassel earrings inside the February Style Vault. Vault Insiders save 15%!)
Gingham is to spring what plaid was to fall.
Phew! Those gingham blouses we all loved last spring still look fresh.
(Image coming.) Diane Von Furstenburg was one of many designers who trotted gingham down the runways for spring 2015. This outfit is a whole lotta gingham. I like it in smaller doses.
(Image coming.) If you wear the midi-length skirt, make sure you add some height with a heel. Otherwise, your long gingham skirt goes frumpy real fast.
I swear I did not make that up nor am I proselytizing you. I am just reporting the facts.
