In the moment: Athletica

A new trend that we can call "athletica" started off as tomboy chic heavily inspired by football, gym gear, and masculine sports. Looks that are less masculine and more feminine or androgynous are the sporty elements that create structured cuts are specialized in luxurious fabrication such as leather, silk, chiffon, and jersey. Sportswear has been a fashion trend over the past few years but this spring there has been nothing but an Olympic burst of sporty chic inspiration in the air. Sleek, functional, with a minimalist leaning this season sportswear offers many new opportunities for wardrobe inspiration when recreating those runway looks.

Pastel Belle

In the moment I've been obsessed with pairing pastels with a printed trousers, pleated skirts, and dip-dyed denim. From sky blue, mint green, lavender, and bubble-gum pink these Easter egg inspired colors are emerging as the front runner trend and have been seen on tastemakers wearing these pastel colors in a slightly edgier-refreshing way. This spring ushers in a new take on pretty pastels, though the pale colors exude a chic feminine and ladylike vibe; they're also fit for those with an edgier sensibility.
