Spring styles look to the 70s for inspiration

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The extra six weeks of forecast by Punxsutawney Phil might be true elsewhere, but down here spring has sprung.

It’s time to rid those closets of the chunky knits and get ready for the dresses and shorts and the new trends this season will fill in those spots nicely.

B Janecka, general manager of Cottonwood Mall, joined KRQE’s This Morning team discussing the hot new trends for both women and men.

With styles from Eddie Bauer, Old Navy, and The Buckle, Janecka discussed how each season a new era returns and this season it’s the 70’s.

Although bellbottoms haven’t quite returned, it’s the subtle touches of retro lapel shapes, juxtaposing color combinations, an abundance of denim, and pant silhouettes that are here.

Geometry isn’t just for math class as the warmer weather comes around; geometric prints are spicing up the styles this season and replacing the floral and solid colored springtime dresses.

The color to sport currently is yellow, from amber and canary to saffron and marigold. Janecka believes there is a shade of yellow for everyone. The trick is figuring out your skin’s undertone, then finding the hue that best compliments it.
