Guest Blogger: Lucy Lashbrook of White House Black Market

 Keeneland's Spring Meet opens this week! Don't be seen wearing outdated styles. White House Black Market's Lucy Lashbrook shares five fashion must-haves for this Spring:

There are so many great trends coming this Spring including lots of color, prints, high contrast patterns, and fabric mixing. Keep reading for just a few of my personal favorite runway looks!

1) Color-blocked Anything!

From dresses to bathing suits, nothing makes a statement like color-blocking. I say, the brighter the better but for you ‘play-it-safers’, simple black and white color-blocking is a classic, stunning look. Word to the wise, stick to a max of three colors so you don’t look like you walked out of a Katy Perry video!

2) Bold Prints

Stripes, polka dots, florals, geometric designs, and (my personal fav) animal prints were all over the runway this spring. Spice up a pair of denim and a simple white t-shirt with a classic blazer in a floral or animal print. Pair a button down blouse with printed jacquard pants. A polka dot handbag is a great addition to (almost) any outfit! You can do this look in a big way with an all over print or in a small way with a simple printed accessory. Don’t be afraid to go bold!

3) Sherbet Hues

Pastels are huge this year in skinny jeans, shift dresses, and blazers. These light and airy colors are perfect for spring and will transition easily into the warm summer months. You really can’t go wrong with this trend; just pick your favorite color(s) and go wild!

4) Metallic Pieces

Try a metallic skinny belt, a blazer with studs and/or sequins, and (of course) gold strappy wedges! This look is not only perfect for a night out on the town, this can also be toned down for the office. For a night out, try a blazer with mixed metals and your favorite skinny jeans. For the office, put on a gold skinny belt with a black pencil skirt and a cardigan. There are endless options with this trend so mix and match and look fabulous!

5) Lightweight Sweaters

There are so many different options in sweaters this spring. Add a cardigan in a pop color to brighten up any outfit. Patterned sweaters in various shapes and weights are perfect for the office or a day of shopping. As it gets a little warmer, try this trend in an open knit style.
