get the look: spring simplicity

Typically, when I think of spring fashion florals and less-complicated patterns come to mind. But this year, I feel like there’s been a shift. This spring, the look is all about graceful simplicity and bold blocks of color. Heck, even Urban Outfitters, purveyor of all things ditsy floral, has simplified it’s look. It’s as if the mass-market fashion has stepped inside the mind of Phoebe Philo and finally offered up what’s inside: draped wide-leg trousers, oversized cardi-sweater hybrids, and superbly simple accessories. Be still my boho-obessed heart, I might have found another love.

Instead, the pop comes from the use of unexpected color: a poppy-colored handbag, a great pair of heels. And yet, still, those accessories are subdued and restrained with just the slight hint of embellishment. And don’t even get me started on the tones of grey that this look has inspired for me. I am practically fawning over marled grey, stonewashed charcoal, and taupe-y grey suede.
