As editors, we have a knack for predicting trends. However, there are some people in the industry who we still look to when thinking about what’s “it” in fashion for the season ahead. Since we scan the market of Shopbop on almost a daily basis, it makes sense that the site’s fashion director, Caroline Maguire, is one of the said people. It’s her job to direct for one of the largest fashion e-commerce sites, so trust us when we say her sartorial opinion is one you should listen to.
When we asked Maguire what she predicts to be the overall vibe for spring this year, she gave a response that got us excited to get dressed for the next season. “Bright, cheery, and optimistic. This spring, fashion will be all about having fun and getting excited to pick out outfits again! We’ve been seeing a lot of casual looks paired with statement pieces—not sacrificing the comfort we’re now used to, but dressing it up,” she said. “I’m excited to see how designers continue to experiment by mixing prints and bold colors, incorporating funky jewelry, and detailing with embellished accessories.” If that response isn’t enough to get you excited for the season ahead, we don’t know what will.
