This season there are a lot of fantastic genres of style with lots of overlap in trends - and we love it! Our L&B stylists have come together to break down some of this season’s most prolific fashions, share a few of our favorite new pieces, and help you bring spring 2015 to your closet. We chose to highlight 3 of the most popular trends this season each with some of our newest pieces in store. Let's get started!
Flow-y fashions punctuated with sherbet-inspired color palettes, pieces cut with a ladylike appeal, flouncy dresses, billow-y blouses, bare shoulders and accentuated waist lines. A-line is the silhouette of the season when it comes to dresses and skirts, enhancing the delicate, feminine feel and girlish wonder that makes Ultra Femme the mother-loving trend that it is.
Trending topics: floral, lace, vintage-inspired, gold, druzy stones, beading, flow-y tops, sparkle, A-line, metallic details, sherbet colors
Ultra Femme Look One:
Not Yo' Momma's Mustard
The first thing you notice about this outfit is the color. Our trendsetters tend to gravitate to more daring color palettes, a move that is bold but a fundamentally feminine choice. Other Ultra Femme style notes are the gold accents and swingin' A-line shape.

Ultra Femme Look 2: Well-placed lace
Lace has always been synonymous with femininity, but unique to the season is the color options. Tangerines and corals are extremely popular this spring and they pair well with soft, neutral tones to make sure the attention is right where you want it.
Ultra Femme Look 3: Be Dazzling
Pretty little shiny things are always in style, and this top is the best bedazzling we’ve seen since the nineties. Subtle, sweet and simple. With a silhouette that has always been lady-like, this look is grown-up girly. Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking. but we’re talking modern florals for the thoroughly modern woman. Think big, bold and unabashedly feminine. Florals: they're here for good.
Geometric prints, clean lines and bold color are the three main aspects of the Modern Maven. You may have not loved geometry class – but our favorite outfit equations are guaranteed to make you rethink your take on geometry...

Modern Maven Look 1: Color Block Party
One of the most now trends in fashion is colorblocking. Strategically placed, contrasting yet complimentary, bold and bright colors paired together to create unique looks on the Spring 2015 runway. If you're in search for a statement look appropriate for a business meeting directly followed by cocktail hour, this is the versatile look for you.
Modern Maven Look 2: Perforated to Perfection
Out of all this spring's fashion trends, nothing is quite as breezy and punchy as perforated apparel. Poking holes in heels, cutout skirts and laser-cut dresses seem to be a reoccurring theme for the ladies —and we like it. We think you’ll agree this hole-some trend is just too 'perf.'

Modern Maven Look 3: Minimal lines, Maximum style
A DIY colorblocking concoction! Pick your favorite asset and highlight it with a solid pop of color or geometric print. When balancing the bold with the tame, use a neutral to minimize those areas you don't feel like flaunting that day. The balance it creates will make people think you're proportions are on point. Add some angular jewelry to complete the look.
Swirls, suede, and tons of embellishment. It's the biggest trend of the season, so you might as well set your Instagram filters to "1977." Billow in the breeze this spring as you take on the elements in style. the luxury boho trend is inspired by iconic hippie-chic looks, paired with modernized prints, palettes and patterns.
Trending topics: fringe, tassels, linen, geographic Print, distressed denim, light washes, layers, stones & geodes, beads, leather
Boho Rap Look 1: A Maxi Tye Dye For
Romantic and comfortable, the new boho look for spring 2015 is soft floor-sweeping dresses with creative funky prints.

Boho Rap Look 2: Fringe Society
Fringe is by far one of the biggest trends for Spring 2015. You can sport the artful swish and swoosh of fringe in in a very boho way by pairing it with distressed denim- another rising trend this season. Perfect for a day window shopping downtown or on your way to an outdoor music festival.
Boho Rap Look 3: Worth the Tassel
A shabby-chic look wouldn't be complete without some tasseled attachments - be they dangling from earrings, necklaces or bags. And hey, didn't we see some lace in the Ultra Femme category? We sure did! Lace in every color from burgundy to buttercream is in this spring, but there's nothing more natural than pure, clean white lace. Something else that our stylists wanted to point out is that the 90's are also having a resurgence. Embrace those plaids and crop tops!
