Spring Forward!

The latest fashionable looks for everyone's favorite season.

Life stands before me like an eternal spring with new and brilliant clothes. — Carl Friedrich Gauss

At last, it's spring! Florals make their expected appearance in pastel and dark patterns but share the spotlight with other graphic patterns, gold tones, and lots of fringe detail. South Main Memphis resident Leah-Claire Friddle Grawemeyer (and a couple of those close to her) show their personal and favorite mixes of the upcoming spring trends.

A softer approach to color works wonderfully in outfits for a day out, while darker florals or black with gold tones are dramatic statements for evening looks.

Local designers Tara Skelley of Dilettante Collection and Lauren Carlson of Question the Answer explore pastels in their latest collections, with a palette of muted coral, pink, and turquoise. Leah sees her spring wardrobe filled with plenty of white and beige with just a few pops of color. The overall mood is warm, carefree, and as blissful — as spring should be.
