Nothing creates a distraction from cold temps like planning ahead for longer days and warmer weather. Seasonal transitions are the best excuse to add the latest fashion trends to our wardrobe and the forecast from the runways of the spring fashion shows and lookbooks appear to be Y2K-Inspired, complete with low-rise waistlines, high-rise hemlines, halter tops aka crop tops in lightweight fabrics, and brightest boldest colors. No one will be wondering which designer reflects your personal style as you carry your logo bag and in some cases, a double logo bag, as your accessory of choice.
Pair these looks with platforms, yasss, platforms, and an oversized tote bag - no more tiny purses, go big or go home. Exposed skin is in this spring with cut-out and spliced pieces that leave little to the imagination. Serve body boo - cleavage, hips, thighs, barebacks, and necklines are all on display.

Ultra-mini mini skirts and mini dresses we're seeing this spring is giving Destiny's Child. Rising hemlines are a symbol of fashion’s return to fun, experimental risqué dressing; I say risk it all with styles from V74 Boutique, G Bemi, and Curverra.
Nothing says the 00's like the platforms from the 60's. The nostalgic shoe is making yet another comeback. TBH, platforms haven't ever gone out of style and the resurgence we are seeing on the runways is proof the iconic shoe has come full circle. Shop Twelve AM Co., Arch NYC, and The Rustic Shoe Box.
Exposure takes on a whole new meaning with this season's cut-out trend. You'll make a fashion statement wearing these skin-baring designs, even more daring than in previous seasons. Get this look from B’s Unique Boutique, Ninedees Label, Eleyvn Thirty, Couture Sexines Boutique, and Nalu Boutique.
