Spring Trend Report: Contrast

For the past few days almost everyone throughout the continental United States has had a taste of warm weather; makes us long for the upcoming Spring. You know what I love most about spring - shedding your cold weather frocks for new spring garments. This spring will be more monochromatic than in the years past.

Contrasting colors have hit the runway like a storm. Oscar, Ralph, Jason, and others (look at me talking about the greats on a first name basis. One can dream can't she?) dipped their pens in hues of white, black, and primary colors to bring us one of the hottest trends of the fashion year.

Stripes, houndstooth, and solids are a staple in garment culture. I quite prefer it. It's not a secret I love black and white with a splash of red...and oh how I love a good houndstooth pattern. But when you pair contrasting colors with A-line maxis and a tailored vest, I go insane.

One of the fashion houses we represent, Studio NTK, picked up on contrasting colors prior to the new trend reports. Our designers are always leading the way in fashion. I tend to think the majors always mimic the minors!

Studio NTK demonstrates this spring trend with how this look is classic yet modern. This is just a sample of what's available in their spring line. Studio NTK comes in a wide range of sizes; XS-XL and 4-18.

ERAS is our vintage boutique line and look at this cute find. This blue and white striped pantsuit is a vintage size 10 (6-8) and it's one of a kind. Dress it up with a belt and shoes of a primary color.
