3 Runway
Motifs That Are Sticking Around

“Trends don’t really exist anymore,” says goop’s fashion director, Ali Pew. Given that she spent the month of February in the front row—NYC, Milan, Paris—we’re going to take her word for it. “These days, designers shape their collections around their ‘woman,’” she explains. “They’re not beholden to the buzzy, one-off industry craze.” (Side note: It’s this same idea that inspired our spring style guide and its definitive archetypes—the minimalist, the modern lady, the operative, and the traveler.) This sea change taking place on the runways has caused a ripple effect down to our closets: Only the fittest prints/shapes/lengths make the cut.

Spot-On

Historically, floral prints get the lion’s share of the spring glory. Ladylike by definition, polka dots are an equally pretty change of pace. Play with scale (micro/macro), tone (muted/metallic), and texture (poplin/point d’esprit), and throw in a few feminine twists—fluttery sleeves, nipped-in waist, pleated A-line—for a result that’s a whole lot sexier than the sum of its parts.

Surf’s Up

Memorial Day may be a ways away, but a beach vacation—by way of sporty neoprene, bold graphic tees, hits of neon—is already off to a booming start. Sleek navy accessories mellow out the Bananarama vibes, whether applied to boyish board shorts, rashguards, or splashy string bikinis.

Blue Period

Nothing beats the ease and sexiness of a jumpsuit. And for maximum results, make it slouchy and make it denim. When playing with layers, try a wispy button-up here, rigid boyfriend jeans there, and adjust the tones accordingly. (Head-to-toe indigo, all-in chambray, or one piece in each shade.) Rich bordeaux accessories break things up nicely.
