Some trends are so intertwined with the start of the new season, they actually help signal it. See: bright new florals, cool‐girl stripes and go‐with‐the‐flow ruffles. Here, the noteworthy styles we’re already tracking (plus, all the swimwear we can't wait to dive into).

The Power of
Flowers

Florals for spring. We know, groundbreaking. But stick with us. There’s a reason this perennial print keeps popping up each year. The same jolt of joy that comes with spotting the first daffodil of the season can be felt in observing springlike blooms bursting across breezy shoulder‑baring dresses, statement‑sleeve tops or a beach‐cruiser‐ ready jumpsuit. This season in particular, we’re pairing blossoms from abstract and oversized to delicate and dainty with of‐the‐moment denim like wrap skirts, cropped jeans and oversized jackets for a look that’s as casually cool as the Venice scene.

Stripes’ New Bandwidth

Vacation vibes have always been strong with this sea‑friendly print. Sailor‑striped tees are still a standard, but for your next trip, might we suggest going on a whole new (perhaps asymmetric) direction? Think colorfully banded and marled lightweight knits, bar code patterns on tie‑front dresses and a menswear‑inspired poplin top transformed by tiers of irresistible ruffles. Mix up the look with florals, or ground it with crisp jeans in washes from light to dark for style that always raises the bar.

Dressed to Frill

The only thing better than feeling that first pleasant breeze of spring hit your skin? Having said breeze timed with the debut of a fresh ruffled frock so your gauzy layers catch major air. Luckily, the fashion forecast calls for a season of frills and flounce, meaning you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ruffle up your wardrobe. Whether you tier up and flow head‐to‐toe or choose a solitary ruffle for a little extra animation, we recommend rocking the trend in unexpected iterations—like on the sleeves of striped blouses or at the hem of a denim skirt.

The Splash Zone

Welcome warmer weather with a slew of new bathing suits—the bolder, the better. Think one‐pieces adorned with light‐catching metallic appliqués, corset-strap detailing on the backs (and fronts) of standout styles, prints and patterns that bring the party to any pool, and even a sporty black bikini with illusion paneling for the most daring of divers. Long story short (we’ll save the novel for your beach reading list): When it comes to swimwear this spring, it’s okay to be a little extra.
