As I walked across campus this morning on a cold and snowy day my thoughts turned to sun pretty spring and summer clothes.  Browsing the spring lineup at Anthropologie (OF COURSE), Nordstroms, JCrew, Zara and Bloomingdales I feel confident in the following predictions:

Maxi dresses will remain very relevant in the coming months.  The longer lengths are also extended to skirts (some of you may be familiar with the term, tea length).  I am seeing many full skirts that fall halfway between the knee and ankle.  Pastels seems to be everywhere.  Boyfriend jeans continue their role as a closet staple. Contrast collar button down shirts continue to be popular.  Ann Taylor has a beautiful white button down with pearls and sequins tastefully (yes those two can look tasteful together, thank goodness) placed on the collar. A touch of leather (real or faux) on garments.  Perhaps a leather sleeve on a cardigan (an unnamed friend may now up her cardi collection to 71 from the current inventory of 70 because I am pretty sure none of hers have a leather accent) or a leather collar on a bomber jacket.  Statement necklaces are also still in trend.  Good news for those of us who may own a few (or a lot but who's counting?)  of these pieces.

I would NOT wear this buttoned all the way up, but thats just me:


The Venus Flytrap necklace from JCrew has stood the test of time, its remains one of their most popular accessories:

What fashion items are you looking forward to in the coming months?
