Wait what? Spring you say? Yes, I know we are just about to get ready for turkey day, but in the fashion world, Spring Previews are in full swing. I had the opportunity to head to Fullbeauty's office downtown to check out what they have in store for us. Well here you go lovers!!
ROAMANS & JESSICA LONDON
Roaman's has been cranking out some gems this Fall, and it continues well into Spring. It's all about updated basics- tunics with lace detailing, open stitch sweaters, and bell sleeved tops. My favorite from the line is the fringed cardigan coat. It's a great layering pieces and completely versatile. In addition to all of the great tops from Roamans, there are fun printed pants. Gingham pants in pink, and floral pants are the standouts. Trench coats are making a comeback, but in shorter versions with kitschy prints.
One of the latest brands added to the Fullbeauty family, Ellos has become one of my favorites. Their pieces are perfect for mixing and matching, and their color palette for Spring is effortlessly cool. I love gingham, and eyelet, and both are huge for Spring. The standouts again are their jackets. There is a cognac suede jacket that I am swooning over. Here in NYC, Spring does not start in March, so layers are still needed. This suede jacket would be the perfect addition to the closet. I love suede and it's not very often that we as plus size women get real suede or leather. So when the opportunity presents itself, I'm on it.
The biggest trend among accessories for Spring 17 are woven details. There is a lot of embroidery and fringe details as you can see in the sandals below. Mules continue to go strong with denim and stud versions. Lace up shoes are still in the picture, (to me they are a staple), in a traditional flat as well as wedge version. I love the woven clutch with the pom poms (it's on my must have list).
There are definitely a lot of gems for this Spring. Now that the year is coming to a close, it's nice to see what is in store for us in 2017. There are some definite must haves on my list. What are you looking forward to?
