WHAT TO WEAR: Spring

The fashion trend that will be featured in Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week spring 2015 is grown-up gingham. This graphic print is shown in dresses, suits and layering of ladylike pieces. Also, there will be an array of navy ripping down the runways this spring. Will navy be the new black? Diane Von Furstenberg created a design that featured a short pantsuit in gingham print.

This Fashionista’s outfit is perfect for the beginning of spring weather. She pairs a simple navy gingham printed blouse with navy sneakers and an oversized, gold striped navy bag. This Fashionista plays it cool by layering with an over-sized, fur lined wool coat. The peek of navy at the bottom of the coat adds just the right touch of color without dominating her look. The coat is perfect because it can be removed throughout the day as the temperature begins to rise. Although her look is more lax than the runway, she keeps it feminine with her bright lipstick and curled hair.

Gingham print can be worn in just about any style throughout the spring. If you are into a mod retro look, try this gingham spring dress in black and white. This gingham print bikini top will turn you from drab into fab within seconds! And if you really want to step outside of the box, try this gingham print two-toned skirt. This would be perfect for the upcoming summer months. I love how this Fashionista keeps it cool with her gingham print shirt.

One Simple Change: This look can easily become perfect for a night in town with your girls. Swap the skinny jeans for a white leather skirt and heels. This will definitely have you looking like spring!
