Spring Trends for Women
The fashion experts at Macy's The Edit have identified five key fashion trends and shaped an IT LIST—a captivating selection of products—to help take the guesswork out of spring wardrobe shopping. Visit Macy’s The Edit to shop the looks.
This spring, drape yourself in fluid silhouettes inspired by laid-back beach culture and the tranquil hues of coastal waters—a calming array of gradient blues ranging from navy to cerulean to azure is coloring everything from bags and shoes to jewelry and watches.
The season’s new shades: sweet and sugary pastels that function like neutrals and layer pure fun into your wardrobe. Wearing them, you’ll be eye candy—adorned and adored in delicious shades of bubblegum, mint and more. These softer shades in everything from chic outerwear to skirts and dresses with longer hemlines are anything but quiet. In jewelry, sculpted florals with pastel stones add a touch of light to any style.
The Pastel Suit
The ultimate combination of power and femininity, the new pastel uniform relies on tart, monochromatic shades that run the gamut from daffodil to salmon. Wear the pastel suit to everything from meetings to mixers and make a truly bold statement by a jacket in one color with a pant or skirt in another.
The Spring Sweater and Frayed Denim
Crochet, mélange knits and fisherman stitching make sweaters perfect for warming temperatures, especially when paired with frayed, high-rise or wide-leg denim.
Delicate sprays of blossoms festoon midi-length dresses and skirts, pants and blazer sets, blouses and jewelry, shaping strikingly feminine silhouettes.
Other Spring Fashion and Beauty Trends
Rope and Raffia, Stripes and Logos, Stackable Jewelry, Metallic Makeup
Refined straw, raffia, rope and woven leathers are key materials in this season’s bags and shoes, while stripes, logos and denim provide refreshing details. In jewelry, stackable sets reign, adding another layer of style.
On the beauty front, powders bring glamour to the forefront with prismatic, cosmic metallic effects. Assortments of glosses and balms lend lips a glowing nude presence. Hydrating serums and retinol treatments bring out the skin’s natural iridescence while floral notes add a whiff of spring to fragrances.
Spring Trends for Men
Statement Denim, Pure Pastels, Coastal Blues, Surf-and-Skate Culture, Navy Suits
In menswear, statement denim featuring unique printed patterns and washes is an essential as is standout athleisure garb showcasing bold prints and candy-colored pastel pieces—all are just waiting to be mixed and matched. Coastal looks strutting blue tones and sporty surf-and-skate combos give off plenty of good vibes in casualwear while navy suits remixed with patterned or monochromatic blue shirts, hoodies or striped t-shirts redefine dresswear.
Beyond the above, Macy’s The Edit is also shining a light on new proportions for women’s clothing. Longer length dresses in plaids, florals and stripes; wide leg pants; high-rise denim; and chunky statement sneakers are transforming the appearance of the feminine form.
For men, floral shirts are lending fresh impact to both casual pants and slacks while track jackets, new chinos with patterns (tie-dye, side stripes, camouflage and more) and tapered leg jeans are redefining the look of laid back. Solid ties, ¾ length jackets and both brown and blue shoes are completing spring looks in all new ways. Visit Macy’s The Edit to see and shop for all these trends.
