If you’re aching for some newness with the change in seasons, or want a bright spot amid home quarantine, we asked two online-only Madison retailers and one retail favorite to share the trends from their shops they’re most excited about.
Ashley Andersen, Evie & Co Boutique
An All-in-One Piece
“This is the perfect piece for your spring wardrobe. It’s made out of comfortable, stretchy fabric with a flattering shape and a functional drawstring to cinch in the waist. This can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with your favorite sneakers.” Striped drawstring waist jumpsuit, $36
“I’m obsessed with this top! It has beautiful detail, gorgeous color and the perfect sunshiny, spring vibe! This would be great with denim cutoffs or your favorite pair of jeans.” Marigold square neck top, $42
“Embroidery and floral is great for spring. This dress has it all—it’s fully lined with a side zip and has flutter kimono sleeves.” Lucy Goldenrod midi dress, $60
“I love this boho print! It’s a great lightweight layering piece for spring. Throw it over a swimsuit or pair with a T-shirt and denim cutoffs.” Tuscon kimono, $32
“This lush green and floral top screams spring and summer. It’s flattering with smocking at the bust and peplum shape. This is a must-have print for spring!” Garden floral top, $42
Tori Martino, LMC Boutique
The Denim Jacket
“We are all about closet staples you can wear again and again. It’s so easy to complete an outfit by tossing on your favorite denim jacket—it’s perfect over a summer dress, with a skirt or even paired with your favorite joggers for a lounge day. We did the searching for you and found one that checks all the boxes.” Light Wash Denim Jacket, $72
A Timeless Tote
“Spring and summer are the best times of the year for adventures in the Midwest! You’ll need a refresh for your go-to bag at some point, and the change of season is the perfect time. I usually recommend something classic and timeless. Leather or vegan leather will never go out of style and will stay in good shape no matter how much love it gets over the years! We carry a few different styles in the shop right now. Our Essentials Tote is in stock in black or cognac and another favorite has been this fun convertible backpack in camel.
Polka Dots, Please
“Whether in the form of cheetah print, Dalmatian or any color combination, polka dots are in this spring! We absolutely love this trend because it’s playful and makes a statement. It’s also a trend that is flattering on any age or body shape. We chose a few fun polka dot pieces this spring in classic silhouettes.” Let’s Swing Dalmatian Tiered Midi Dress, $68, and Mocha Dot Flutter Sleeve Top, $54
“There are so many fabulous striped looks appearing this spring, and all with a unique feel! Nautical navy and white stripes are a spring staple we fall in love with year after year because of ease of wear. We also love a stripe with a pop of color.” Striped Short Sleeve Ribbed Dress, $64 and Sail Away Striped Top, $48
The Statement Earring
“One of our favorite spring styling tips is to take a simple dress or top and elevate the look with a statement earring. Statement accessories are an affordable way to create endless looks with the clothing you have on hand! Plus, what better way to incorporate a big spring bloom into your look?” Oversized BLOOM Studs, $18
Zoe Schuler, Z Boutique
“We’re still seeing a ton of animal prints in T-shirts, dresses, tunics, pants and more. We have some fun styles coming this week.” Animal print gauze palazzo pants, $48, Untamed tee, $38 and Wild Thing dress, $52 (all sizes 1X-3X)
“In my opinion, a great denim jacket is a spring wardrobe staple. We’ve been selling both of these styles.” Take Me Back Denim Jacket (sizes 1X-3X), $58, or the attached style which is also $58.
“Since it’s spring, of course floral prints are popular. The Coco Tunic Tank has more of a sophisticated floral pattern on it that has appealed to a lot of our customers.” $106
“Anything comfy or athleisure is flying out of the store. People are at home and want to be comfy but cute. The Miley Poncho (in 1X-3X, $26) is a popular item. It can be worn loose or with the side(s) tied. We also have some great moto-style yoga leggings coming in sizes 1X-3X [that are] $26. And, the Fresh Produce Jetsetter Collection is popular. It’s [made with] ribbed modal fabric that is so soft and comfy. The entire collection is meant to be mixed and matched to create a variety of outfits. Sizes 1X-3X, $54-$94
