Style Recap: Neiman Marcus spring trend event


Fashion week may be buzzing in New York, but Neiman Marcus in Bellevue delivered a heavy dose of local fashion on Wednesday afternoon with a spring style presentation highlighting must-have trends for the season. Three local tastemakers were tapped to interpret the trends including Darcy Camden of Styled Seattle, Lisa Cole of Vanguard, and Jennifer McCullum of Seattle magazine. The trio reviewed five of the top trends for spring and discussed styling strategies along with ideas on how to transition key pieces from day to night.



Red is a confident color and there are so many ways to wear it for spring. It was seen on the runway in a full range of shades at shows like Prada, Jason Wu, Marni and Altuzarra. Lisa Cole picked a red leather jacket as one of her favorite ways to wear the trend while Darcy chose a structured blazer and Jenny opted for a head to toe monochrome look featuring a 2-piece red netted crop top with a matching pencil skirt.


We've been living in denim for several seasons now, but this spring denim is all about mixing and matching colors and textures. Dark denim with a grey chambray shirt, a light denim dress layered under a white denim jacket, denim shoes, denim accessories and of course, denim bags.


Embellishments are everywhere for spring and come in many forms including embroidery, bead work, sequins, texture and more. Dip a toe into this trend with an ornate pair of earrings, or go all out with embellishments on prints as seen in the shoes above. More is more my friend.


The Third Piece is something that can be added to an outfit, or taken away to create multiple looks. For spring the third piece can be as easy as a leather jacket or as versatile as a blazer taking any look from day to evening in 5 seconds flat.


Last but not least, lace is a major trend for spring and it happens to be one of my favorite. Lace cuffs on sweatshirts, lace trim on tops and of course, lace embellishments on outerwear make for an easy way to try the trend for spring.
