At the risk of a highly unlikely jinx, it’s safe to say that the warmer spring weather is here to stay and that white fluffy four-letter-word won’t be bothering us until winter rolls around again. To get a sense for what the warmer weather means for fashion this year, we talked to Kim Hutchings at Misguided Angels about shopping at Brambleton Town Center, sunny days, cool nights and what to wear for each.
Spring temperatures are finally here. What styles are you seeing emerge with the blossoms?
Jumpsuits are back in a big way for spring, especially cropped jumpsuits and short rompers. And of course denim is always a hit but it’s definitely HUGE this season – denim shirts, denim dresses, denim skirts, and white denim. A customer favorite are our distressed white jeans, which we can’t seem to keep in stock!
What kinds of patterns are in style this spring and summer?
I’m seeing a lot of classic and retro patterns on feminine shapes this season, so a lot of gingham, stripes, polka dots, and plaids on a classic shirt dress, shorts or skirt. Classic and clean.
Temps are warm during the day, but what if I want to enjoy a glass of wine on the patio at night when it’s much cooler?
It’s all about layering, so I would go with a classic blazer or a little cropped jacket with fun details. You’ll want something that’s simple and stylish but adds that extra layer for when it gets a little chilly at night.
What’s your absolute favorite look Misguided Angels is carrying right now?
My favorite look right now is all about taking simple, classic (and comfy!) items such as boyfriend jeans or cargo pants, pairing them with a simple deconstructed t-shirt and dressing the look up with heels and accessories.
For a lot of women, spring and summer means open toed shoes. What’s heating up in fashionable footwear?
For footwear, it’s all in the details – laces, fringe, buckles and zippers adorn many of this season’s hot styles.
