Top Fashion Picks for Spring
1. Knit tops are the “it” tops
Knit tops might seem like an odd trend to catch on in the spring. After all, aren’t knitted fabriccs hotter? Yes. But not when the tops are virtually see-through. A daringly transparent knit top layered over a brightly colored bralette makes for a dynamic look, and it’s one you’re sure to be seeing a lot of this year.
OUR PICK: Zara has a sleeveless round-neck knit crop-top that somehow manages to look brilliantly simple and dazzling intricate all at the same time. Its plain white color and detailed crochet is sure to complement whatever you choose to wear under it (if you wear anything at all, you saucy minx you). Best of all, it’s surprisingly affordable.

2. Hot pants are hot again
Just what the doctor ordered now that temperatures are on the rise, a good pair of hot pants will keep you cool while letting you show off your lovely legs. Warm weather won’t be the only reason the neighborhood boys are sweating when you leave the house in a pair of these booty-beautifying bottoms. Who wears short shorts? This year, everybody!
OUR PICK: While denim is usually the go-to fabric for Daisy Dukes, we think Blank NYC’s black faux leather paperbag-waist shorts offer a perfect way to add a touch of sleek S&M sex appeal and rock-n-roll rebelliousness to your otherwise sunny spring wardrobe without going overboard into biker-guy-from-the-Village-People territory. And because they’re not real leather, that means they’re animal-friendly. Just how we like it.
3. Sneakers go psychedelic
Sure, plain white trainers are acceptable as ever, but there’s nothing fun or fashionable about “acceptable.” Those of us who have been waiting for something bolder and brighter can now enjoy the wave of colorful sneakers picking up steam, each one a kaleidoscope of rainbow hues that make it hard to believe their designers weren’t on acid.
OUR PICK: Dig up an Adidas promo code and pick up the company’s Falcon sneaker. These are the kicks that, well, kicked off the whole multicolor trend, and they’re still king of the hill with their metallic accents and eye-popping layers of seafoam green, sapphire blue, iris purple, and two shades of pink: pastel and bubblegum.
