Spring Forward

I am in a funk. A black, grey, charcoal, navy funk. The winter weather has got me down and when I turn to my closet I am thoroughly uninspired. Big sigh.

However…I know that has to change eventually, (insert Annie lyrics about the sun comin’ up tomorrow) and over the next few weeks I look forward to sharing some of the best Spring Fashion Trends with you, with hints on how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe now during this “shoulder season”. I want to get out of my fashion funk without looking like I’ve taken a wrong turn at Palm Beach.
First stop…Reitmans. I’ve written before about my love for their comfort fit pants and their fun accessories so let’s see what one of our favourite Canadian retailers has in store for us this Spring/Summer, shall we? 
First trend they’re showing is nautical, and whether you’re actually planning for a cruise or docked for the near future, navy and white stripes freshen up your look and make a bold statement. Pair this pullover now with dark jeans and black boots. In a few months freshen the look up with white capris and lots of silver.

The military trend was hot in winter coat fashions, and it continues to be a hot trend for Spring. These cargo pants are part of the Original Comfort Pant line (yeah!!) and will look great now with a turtleneck, and later with a tank top.

The crocus is my favourite flower because it’s able to poke its colourful head bravely through those last bits of snow-covered ground in March, promising a taste of warmth to come. Show a little bravery of your own by introducing some floral punch to your wardrobe. Pair with an oversized scarf and black dress pants now, and over a little black sun dress in a few months.

Finally, just as last winter saw a plethora of bright wool coats, we can look forward to some wonderful bright trench coats for warmer months.  I saw this ruby red belted version at the Reitmans Spring/Summer Preview and the colour and style jumped off the rack.

All of these pieces are priced under $100 and will be in Reitmans stores across the country this month.
Perhaps you’re feeling a little uninspired, too, so our friends from Reitmans are offering at $100 gift card to put a little Spring in your step (and in your closet). Just leave a comment below telling me what you’re most looking forward to this Spring…one lucky UrbanMoms member will win a $100 gift card from Reitmans!
