The winter blues are no match for spring’s hottest hues.

Fashion is feeling blue this spring (!). Recent runways and collections saw a variety of shades and hues—from denim duds to cozy robin’s egg pieces to vibrant bright blue details. Here, some local must-have blue selects. Get ready to spring forward—in style!

Bubble-Sleeve Floral Minidress
Florals for spring (in the season’s hottest color, natch)—groundbreaking, indeed! Bubble sleeves and a bodice smock up the fun factor and create unique dimension.

Crossbody Bag
Stylish storage? Yes, please! Especially when its a shiny enamel-finished faux leather purse complemented by gorgeous gold-toned hardware—aka the perf balance of edgy and chic. … And the added crossbody strap allows you to bop around town hands-free. Convenient fashion FTW!

Cotton Scarf
This all-in-one scarf, shawl and blanket is ideal for those chilly spring NC evenings—or for when you’re jet-setting off on vacay (we all know how freezing airplanes are!). Consider it a must-have for your spring break trip.

High-Rise Trousers
If you despise jeans, you’re gonna wanna add these bright slouchy pants to your rotation. They’re fun yet classy, making them perfect for the office—and post-work happy hour, obv.

Flowy V-Neck Blouse
We’re all about letting it flow this spring! A royal blue top is guaranteed to grab attention in a sea of your standard spring pastels.

Bubblegum Bodysuit
Bodysuits are guaranteed to be a staple in your spring wardrobe. Their versatility makes them perfect for dressing up or down, and they can be styled in a variety of ways—paired with a flowy skirt for a night out or a casual pair of jeans.

Midiskirts are having a revival. The trendy hem length is arguably the most comfortable, as it’s not too short that you’ll have to worry about pulling your skirt down every 15 seconds, and not too long that the hemline grazes the ground and gets dirty after one wear.

Beaded Bracelet
These handstacked resin bracelets—available in a variety of colors, including cobalt and light blue—instantly evoke scenes of dreamy destinations like Morocco, Mexico and Bali. NTM they’re great for layering with other gold-toned bracelets. Bring on the bling!

Oversize Romper
It doesn’t get more comfy than this oversize cotton romper. The best part? It has pockets (!). Consider it your spring weekend uniform—perfect for lazing around the house.

Fringe Sneaker
These shoes were made for making a statement! Smooth leather and fringe details add much-needed flair to any outfit—whether casual or dressy. Stepping up your sneaker game has never been easier.
