By now, even the hardiest of us are pretty tired of shovelling snow and scraping ice off of our windshields. When the going gets tough, I like to think of positive things that make me happy. These things include the latest fashion trends for spring! Here are some of our favourite spring looks. You'll find plenty of them at my premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue and in my online shop: www.annesontheavenue.com:
Gingham always reminds me of Dorothy’s dress in The Wizard of Oz, and picnic tablecloths. You know this homey, familiar pattern, too. It’s a checkerboard pattern in two colours: white and one other colour. It’s always sweet and comforting. But who knew gingham could be haute couture? My favourite gingham piece right now is Frank Lyman’s Wired Collar Cream & Gold Jacket. It has a pattern of grey gingham and patches that is absolutely fabulous!
There is something about the nautical life that inspires the dreamer in us all. Ah, to sail the open seas with no worries, no other responsibilities. Nautical fashions invoke visions of a sailor’s free spirited lifestyle. I love Frank Lyman’s Nautical Stripe Maxi Dress. Can’t you just picture yourself in it lounging on the deck of a yacht under the brilliant sun?
This spring, floral patterns have one thing in common: They are full of bold colours. Many are on the artsy side, too. These fresh patterns have florals that are mixed with geometric shapes. Frank Lyman’s Abstract Print Maxi Dress is a perfect example. The vivid blues in this dress are simply amazing!
These fabulous trendy pieces are in stock at Anne’s on the Avenue right now. I’ve also made them available online for you at www.annesontheavenue.com. So don't despair my dear fashionistas. Spring will be here soon and you can look forward to some of the fabulous style trends above. New spring fashions are arriving daily here at Anne's on the Avenue.
