Vote For Your Favorite Spring Trend!

By Sarah Conley · January 26, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

Even though the wind may still be blowing outside, carrying with it an unavoidable, crisp edge, Spring is just around the corner! Soon enough, you'll be craving blooming flowers, pedicures and sunglasses. When it comes time to hang up our bulky jackets to make way for capris and feminine details, we want to know what trend you'll be wearing.  Will you choose the soft touches of Victorian Romance or the far-and-away expedition feel of Safari Chic? Perhaps you'll want to relax in comfortable Casual Cotton Knots or Relaxed Chambray? For a classic Spring look, you can't go wrong with Maxi Dresses or Bohemian Layers.

What style will you be reaching for the most?
