Ruffles (shown above)

“Pretty sophisticated ruffles are one of my favorite trends this season. My favorite pieces featured ruffles in a way that are sleek and modern without too much volume.”
— Jana Meister

One Shoulder

“We’ll still see the ’70s inspired off-the-shoulder silhouettes this season, but the one-shoulder is making a comeback in dresses and tops. As a nod to the ’80s, it’s a little more rock ‘n roll, but still feels chic and timeless.”
— Stephanie Jacob

Third Form Relection dress, $259, Aana Janakis bangle, $120, sunglasses, $15. All from Anaphora in Prairie Fire. Joie heels, $129.90, from Bob Jones Shoes.

Blush Pinks

“Rosy hues in nearly every varying shade of pink are one of spring’s stand-out trends. Soft, pretty blush pinks are perfect on almost every skin tone and look so fresh!”
— Jana Meister

Pale Leather Footwear

“Booties, pumps, and bootie-pump hybrids in a variety of lighter, brighter colors will be common this spring. They’ll keep you comfortable on those transitional days when it’s too warm for boots and too cool for sandals.”
— Stephanie Jacob

Adriano Goldschmied jeans, $178, Mink Pink top, $90, Dolce Vita booties, $150, Julie Zancanelli earrings, $74. All from Alysa Rene Boutique in Park Place.

Navel-length Pendant Necklaces

“After a dose of ’90s-inspired chokers, these longer necklaces are a welcome change. There’s an airiness to them that feels effortless and free-spirited.”
— Stephanie Jacob

Reworked Denim

“This is a new iteration of distressed denim. Taking this trend one step further to jeans that have been distressed and detailed to seem as though you’ve worn them for years.”
— Abby Wood

Baldwin jeans, $455, sleeveless T-shirt, $165, sleeveless vest, $595. All from Standard Style Boutique in Town Center Crossing and on the Country Club Plaza. Karine Sultan necklace, $95, from Webster House in the Crossroads. Kanna black booties, $139.90, from Bob Jones Shoes in the Crossroads.

Banker Stripes

“Stripes are such a huge trend in spring, but this season the “Banker Stripe”, a very thin blue stripe pattern typically seen in men’s business wear, is crossing over into women’s wear.”
— Jana Meister

The New White Shirt

“Reconstructed tops in shirting fabric are a fantastic way to update and modernize your casual wardrobe and still remain classic and polished.”
— Abby Wood

Lace-Up Details

“Ribbons, laces and drawstrings, on sleeves, necklines, or even on the back of garments, create edgy and fun looks. The lace-up detail allows you to show just enough skin with a slightly undone style.”
— Jana Meister

Bailey top, $158, Bailey skirt, $128, BeJe Designs cuff, $178, and earrings, $88. All from Miriam Garvey in the Fairway Shops. Regarde le Ciel booties, $139.90, from Bob Jones Shoes.

Florals

“Spring is bursting with your choice of bold, retro wallpaper-inspired florals or soft pastels. In a floaty dress or blouse, you can wear them right into summer.”
— Stephanie Jacob

Ankle-wrap Footwear

“With the popularity of lace-up shoes in the last few years, styles that wrap or buckle around the ankle are a fresh update this season. They leave the top of your foot bare and draw the eye to the ankle. You’ll see styles with a single strap or multiple ones and ties ranging from thick and chunky to thin and sleek.”
— Stephanie Jacob

Elie Tahari blouse, $298, Donna Degnan slacks, $170, Frances Valentine kitten heels, $395. All from Halls Kansas City in Crown Center.
