Spring is a time for butterflies to pop out of their cocoons. That is certainly where the fashion industry is taking us this year. The stores are all aflutter in flutter sleeves, flutter collars and flutter hems. If you love soft and feminine, you will love your local sportswear departments, where you will find soft fabrics such as rayon and poly in georgette and crepe wovens. The prints are bold; oversized flowers and Hermes-inspired scarf prints in bright colors such as lime green, turquoise, orange and lavender. The scarf print is especially striking in the scarf top, the epitome of soft, loose, and romantic. Peasant tops with smocking and embroidery are, also, plentiful in the sportswear assortment, as is lace, and the perennial animal print.
If it is shape and definition that you are looking for, head to the dress department. The stand-outs here are the Chanel-inspired black and white shifts, ruched and empire waists, and form-enhancing, color blocking. Here the scarf prints are demure and bi-tonal, with plenty of black and white. The pops of color are in the jewel tones; jade, amethyst, ruby, and sapphire.
Whether you want your look to be clean, sophisticated lines or soft, feminine lines, you can find both looks in Reno stores for spring.
