Designers were so into the elegance of the 1920's.  Flapper-like dresses, rich silk, feathers, art deco beadings and even pajama trends were all over the runway.

This season we are no longer restricted to wearing our workout clothes in the gym nor would you be frowned upon anymore if you dress up your athletic clothes and give it a more high fashion statement.
Sweatshirts are getting the luxury treatment and everyone can explore their sporty side with a streamlined take on sportif dressing.

6.  Lessons in Geometry

Geometric prints were the funnest and most unexpected print trend for Spring. Ranging from dresses to accessories, bold geometric shapes are sure to catch the eye. And if you're daring enough, try geometric statement necklaces.
