Cinching Together Spring Trends

Fashion Week has officially kicked off in NYC. Here in Wisconsin, it can be difficult to be anticipating the trends and styles for the Fall 2016 collections when we're grasping for any chance of spring weather. Nevertheless, the world of fashion is always thinking ahead to what's next.

For those of us in the chilly Midwest, we're keeping our minds on the approaching spring fashions. 

Jeremy Scott draws heavy inspiration from pop art and creates a modern take on mod couture.

Balmain mixed traditional winter neutrals and fabrics with bright pops of color.

MIchael Kors presented a dreamy, bohemian-goddess silhouette that has us longing for days on Lake Michigan.

The trends, fabrics, and colors varied from designer to designer, but a consistent accessory appeared in countless shows: belts!

Always a classic, forever a staple, belts can make an outfit. They can be simple or a statement piece. They can be utilitarian or merely a garnish. However you like to choose your belts is up to you, but an important consideration is HOW we wear belts.

Each one of us is shaped differently. We love this video that ADA has put together to demonstrate how to choose and style a belt for your body shape!

We carry ADA belts at Lela year-round in a variety of seasonal colors and textures! Be sure to stop in to pick up this essential for your refreshed spring wardrobe.
