A new season brings opportunities to try new looks, and what better source of spring outfit inspiration than the ensembles seen outside of shows throughout this most recent fashion month? In Milan and Paris, moderate temps allowed for showcasing spring looks in their purest form—knitwear with open-toed shoes, blazers with bare legs, and best of all, spring jackets in every fabric from tweed to gabardine.
The window to wear spring outfits can pass in the blink of an eye, so it’s best to take advantage of the forecast pronto. This spring, there’s something for everyone—from those who wish to go minimalist to those who will embrace stand-out prints and vibrant colors.
