Spring awakening
Fashion tempts with color and prints

Come on, warm weather.
After shivering through winter, the Ion Style team is looking forward to blooms, buds and green grass. And let’s not forget what fashion has to offer — pretty pastels, bold black and white, ‘90s flashback, bomber jackets, artful prints, fun flats and sandals, lace, mesh, pleated skirts and, of course, the color of the year, Radiant Orchid.

Here’s what we love for spring.

Black and white. It shows up in tiny checks, bold stripes and oversize florals. Yoana Baraschi black and white jacket from Ruth Meyers, Nichols Hills Plaza.

Orchid explosion. Pantone Color Institute named Radiant Orchid its color for 2014. This captivating color with fuchsia, purple and pink undertones is already showing up in fashion, beauty and home décor. Max Mara dress and bag on the runway.

Art fest. Art-inspired prints are a fun diversion from the onslaught of pastels and white on white looks this season. This Prada dress was shown during the spring runway show.

Eye popping. Long, lush lashes with exaggerated volume and impact are always in style. And that’s exactly what Estee Lauder’s new Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara promises to deliver. Available at department stores.

Flat-out fun. Flats are taking on a new look for spring and summer, with styles that go beyond the ballet. Jimmy Choo’s “Terry,” a multi-color flat available at Balliets.
