One of the hottest spring trends for 2015 are the sorbet-inspired colors that were showcased on the runway at fashion shows from designers including Marc by Marc Jacobs and Alice + Olivia. Think the softest pinks, light pistachio greens and romantic pastel purples, which can easily be incorporated into your spring wardrobe. If you’re not a fan of wearing full pastels, try adding a splash of pastel color inspiration with a cute bag, pair of shoes, or other accessory. Consider this pastel color splurge as an investment because this trend will also carry over into fall.
A light-weight blouse is an easy-to-wear piece that is both versatile and chic and a trend that everyone can wear. Blouses can be worn as dressy or casual and are always flattering to any fashion ensemble. During the day, you can pair a pretty, printed blouse with jeans and heels or for a night out on the town, go with a sexier sheer blouse paired with a leather skirt.
For the spring 2015 fashion season the style of the 1970s will once again be making a comeback in a big way. Design houses including Etro, Alberta Ferretti and Roberto Cavalli are showcasing 1970s trendsetting pieces such as jumpsuits, suede fabrics, bell bottom pants and lightweight prarie-style dresses. These bohemian, romantic trends can be worn day or night. There is no right or wrong way to wear them so pick your 1970’s pieces that you like best and style them as you see fit.

According to the Pantone Color Institute, the color of the year is Marsala, and for spring 2015, the spring trends call for much more of this rich, sultry color. Marsala is often associated with a Sicilian wine and is a gorgeous shade to pair with a romantic, daytime print dress or a nighttime splash of metallics. You can implement this seductive shade into your look with nail polish, lipstick, eyeshadow or a subtle blush.
