Resort, almost spring. Mentally, I’m totally ready. My wardrobe isn’t really ready yet though. Of course, there’s the basics that are always in my closet: the great skinnies I’ve been wearing for years, the white, black and grey tees. My wardrobe pretty much consists of a stable amount of basics and every season I like to add a few eye catchers, items to spice up those basics. So what’s on the Hot List (and in store) right now? Here’s some of it, partly on the Hot List in the entire industry, partly on the Hot List because I love it. Also on top of their game this season? Dutch department store de Bijenkorf, adding more and more luxury brands to their online store and stocking all the hot pieces in this article. Like this blouse and these shorts above from the Acne Resort 2014 collection. I saw them in real life and they’re so good. Sequins are making a comeback looking at spring and even fall 2014 collections and I love a high quality sequin piece when done well. Guess you can always trust Acne for that.. Get the top here and the shorts here.
What you wore this fall but can still wear this spring: slogan shirts and logomania. Sweaters are having a big moment as well and both trends are combined in these 2 pieces from Isabel Marant Étoile, absolutely on the Hot List right now. Get the Good Morning Tokyo sweat here and the Fujiyama sweat here.
I’ve been talking about it already, but baby blue is my color of choice this season, and not only mine. I adore this 3.1 Phillip Lim mini satchel, so cute!
Colorful geometric prints, abstract prints and color clashing. Come spring, everyone (even me) is ready to add some color to their wardrobe, brighten it up a little. Now I’m very restrained when it comes to any print in color, but geometrical prints do often catch my attention and when a print is done really really well, even I give in to it every now and then. Maybe not as much as Henry Holland does with the geometric track pants and sequin printed tee you see above, but if even Paul Smith makes a good geo printed pant (second one pictured) – who knows what’s to come this spring! Are you ready?
