Fine Living: Edmond Fashion in Full Bloom

Owners
and managers of the trendiest boutiques in Edmond know the hottest
spring fashions and can help you find a favorite outfit this season.

I
definitely think Edmond is very trendy,” said Lauren Owsley owner
of Retropolitan.


One
of spring’s many delights is that you don’t have to sacrifice
chic for comfy. From feminine pastel colors and soft silhouettes, to
modern exotic prints – the key is to feel fabulous.

What
is always in style are clothes that compliment your figure and a
style that makes you feel confident,” says Frencesca’s manager,
Reem Bahouth.


Dresses
“Floral
is definitely in, from prints on skirts, to rosette appliqués on
dresses, to floral accessories,” said Bahouth of
Frencesca’s
at 1470 S. Bryant
.

“Shorter
(dresses), anything with an appliqué, like ruffles or a flower on
it, a bow,” said Owsley of Retropolitan
at 1489 E. 15th
.
“We are seeing a lot of ethnic-type print dresses. Stripes are
really, really big for spring.”


Jeans
“In
the spring, you’re going to see extremely destroyed denim. That’s
going to be a huge trend,” said Carrie Boevers, owner of
Lush
at 14101 N. May
.

“Boyfriend
jeans are big again, and actually they are now promoting boyfriend
shorts, which are kind of a baggy Bermuda short,” said Owsley.
Another item she likes are rompers. “They have ruffles; they are
casual-cute and comfortable. It’s like a jumper but with
shorts.”

Tops
“Naturals
and blushes are in. Lots of shades of cream, beige, blush pink
and feathery tops,” said Bahouth. “Soft pastels, weightless
fabrics, delicate lace and ruffles.”


“Red,
white and blue is in, as always,” Bahouth added. “Lots of classic
American denim, stars and stripes, and the girl-next-door attitude
with some nautical styling.”

“Racerback tops and
boyfriend, baggy t-shirts are two really big styles for spring,”
said Owsley. “We are also seeing a lot of crushed tops with
beadwork and all kinds of appliqués.”

Shoes
“Gladiator
sandals, flip-flops with details and beads,” are spring essentials
said Amanda Syed, owner of
Rock
Angel at 16614 N. Pennsylvania Ave.

“Open-toe
flats, wedges,” added Kelsie Petree, owner of Pink
Sugar Boutique at 1389 E. 15th.

“Bright pink with croc texture or even the leopard pattern is still
big.” One of her favorite pairs are black leather Mary Janes with
peep toes and a little orange flower on the
side.

Accessories
“Oversized
is still really popular. We are also seeing a lot of
over-the-shoulder satchels in brighter colors.” said Petree.

“One
of the top trends in accessories right now is wrap bracelets. Also
big, oversized shades,” said Owsley. She says bucket bags and
chain-strap purses are also a must-have.

“We have amazing
headbands with bright silk poppies and roses to add some excitement
to your hair. We also have some great wide belts with big flowers on
them, perfect to go over a tunic and jeans or a flirty spring dress,”
said Bahouth.

Children
Christin
Linch, owner of
Lil
Dudes and Divas at 1448 S. Bryant Ave.

sees boys wearing classic golf-inspired outfits and girls in bright,
vibrant party dresses. Linch’s favorite outfit is a multicolored
polka dot dress, paired with a cropped jean jacket and a ribbon.

Linch
says bright pink Converse shoes are the most popular item right
now.

Maternity

A
lot of ruffles, bright vibrant colors and animal prints. Plus tons of
necklaces to match,” says Christin, co-owner of
Pickles
and Ice Cream at 1450 S. Bryant Ave.

Skinny
jeans for expecting moms, as well as trouser jeans,” said Tim
Kilkenny, owner of
Bella
Blu Maternity at 323 N. Blackwelder Ave.

“Wrap dresses are still the style for spring, there’s no
doubt.”

“For the most part, there are two colors and they
are soft, like yacht teal and cream. That has been a big
combination,” said Kilkenny. “All black as well – it’s the most
popular color for maternity.”
