Spring’s best fashion trends are transitional between casual and all-out chic

Fashion, and the women who follow it, are cautiously optimistic this spring.

Floral prints look as bright as our post-pandemic future. Diamonds — the stay-at-home splurge of the last two years — beg to be worn. And for Texans in particular, there’s never been a better time to up your cowboy hat game.

The season’s best trends are transitional. They toe the line between casual and a full return to all-out chic. These embellished caftans and tactile separates can host a house gathering or hit the town. Dressed-up sundresses are ready for small-scale weddings or last-minute vacations.

Whether you’re flying the coop or joining via Zoom, remember supporting small business is always in style. Oh, and hope looks good on everyone.
