Shop: Spring forward
Story by Sara Nunn
What's on the horizon for spring style? See our photo feature on page 32. Meanwhile, Wendy Albert has a few ideas too. She's a shopping pro, senior director of marketing for Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, and was recently named one of In Business Las Vegas' "40 under 40." As the shops start hauling in the latest looks, she's got an early eye on this season's style.
Favorite spring trends? "Nautical stripes on shirts, pants, and skirts and in different widths to accentuate the best parts of your body. Lace is also an easy thing to add to your wardrobe to wear now, and when the weather warms up. Pair a lace top with jeans, wear a lace dress with tights or beautiful lace shoes with just about anything."
What trend will last through the summer and fall? "Seventies glamour. Think high-waisted pants with flared legs and print blouses with ties during the day, flowing gowns in fabrics with sheen for the evening."
What new pieces do you recommend for shoppers on a budget? "A white dress - in lace if you're daring. An oversized men's-inspired shirt, especially in a sheer fabric for layering. Platform wedge heels in a neutral shade. Coral makeup, especially nail polish or a sheer lip gloss."
