    Saks Fifth Avenue is currently offering a variety of designer items with up to 70% off, allowing us to explore new trends this upcoming season, whether you're looking to add new pieces to your collection or simply refresh your existing wardrobe. As winter gracefully departs, it's time to revamp your wardrobe with the latest mid-season fashion trends and get ready for spring.

    Layering is a key fashion trend during the mid-season shift. As the weather begins to warm, it's not yet time to put away your winter staples. Instead, match your heavy winter attire with lighter, spring-appropriate pieces to get a gorgeous and elegant style. A thick knit sweater, for example, may be matched with a midi skirt or jeans and a lightweight jacket.

    One more prevalent trend during this time of year is the use of bright colors. Winter fashion tends to be associated with darker shades, but spring brings a burst of vibrancy. Adding pops of bold colors to your wardrobe with accessories such as handbags, scarves, and shoes can enliven any outfit. Alternatively, opt for eye-catching and distinctive clothing pieces like blouses, dresses, and jackets.

    Florals are a traditional design that resurfaces every spring, but they have taken on a stronger twist this year. Designers are straying away from tiny and classic floral motifs and towards more abstract, bigger, and more vivid designs. These eye-catching floral designs may be worn with anything, from dresses to blouses to jeans.

    Ankle boots are a perennial favorite for mid-season footwear due to their versatility and ability to complement a wide range of outfits. However, if you're seeking something different, mules, loafers, or sneakers are equally popular options to consider.

    Denim is always in style, and this season is no exception. Denim jackets, jeans, and skirts are all fashionable and practical choices for this time of year. Experimenting with various denim washes, from light to dark, can help you create a unique and personalized style.

    Finally, accessories are an excellent way to elevate an outfit without breaking the bank. Statement earrings, colorful necklaces, and layered bracelets are all popular choices this season. Consider topping off your look with a chic hat or sunglasses to exude elegance and sophistication.

    The mid-season shift from winter to spring presents an exciting opportunity to explore and experiment with new fashion trends. Whether you opt for layering, vibrant colors, bold florals, or classic denim pieces, there are endless possibilities for creating a distinct and personalized style. By infusing a touch of creativity, you can breathe new life into your wardrobe and greet the new season with confidence and panache.

    Here are my top 10 items from Saks Fifth Avenue's Designer Sale:
    1. Good American - Better Than Leather Shacket
    2. D'Estree - Sonia 24K Gold-Plated Drop Earrings
    3. Theory - Blanket-Stitch Silk Shell

    Minimalist fashion has long been a polarizing topic, with some embracing its simplicity and elegance, while others find it too restrictive and lacking in personality. Some people are drawn to the idea of building a capsule wardrobe and the simplicity that comes with it, while others fear that their personalities will be washed away by the "basicness" of minimalist fashion. However, there is a growing movement of designers who are pushing the boundaries of minimalism and infusing their designs with unique elements and personality.

    One such designer is Sara Bergman. Her eponymous brand is focused on not-so-basic basics–with each piece carefully crafted by hand in a small workshop in Portland, Oregon. Her designs focus on intriguing cut outs, flattering lines, durability, and freedom of movement.

    Sara's pieces are perfect for those seeking a sleek, modern, and one-of-a-kind look. Her new Bergie Jeans, available in black, cream, and cobalt blue, feature a flattering high waist and wide leg, crafted in a durable denim with just enough stretch to feel as comfortable as leggings. They can easily be paired with a variety of outfits, making them a great addition to any fashion-forward wardrobe. Additionally, the Bergie Jacket, designed to pair with the jeans or work on its own, features clean lines and deep pockets—think of it as a minimalist chore coat.

    Sara's brand has received rave reviews from customers and holds a perfect seller score on Etsy. Her commitment to quality and excellent customer service is evident in everything she does and creates. Not only is Sara one of the few designers making and selling American-made jeans, but she also takes the time to understand her customers' needs and preferences, and goes above and beyond to ensure that each customer is satisfied with their purchase.

    Feather Drum caught my ever-curious mother's eye as soon as I saw a sample of their products. The shop is a perfectly crafted curation of what they rightfully call "future classics". The philosophy centers on high-quality natural fabrics, modern, timeless shapes and exquisitely-made pieces that merit their place in your wardrobe season after season.

    Founder, Kelly-Lee Wright, is a fast-emerging designer, originally from the UK. Her vision on sustainability and ethics are top priority for her – and that’s how she’s creating long-term investment pieces that lessen the environmental impact associated with fast fashion.

    As a mother of one 10-year-old girl who rates her interest in clothes by a scale of "comfort" (like I do), I was pleasantly surprised to find a shop that provides that for girls and women alike. How many times have you seen a 5-year-old girl wearing something and wondered if it came in your size? Wonder no more. While the pieces are an exact copy for women and girls, they surely have been creating under the same principles. Girls need to be girls after all.

    Their latest Spring/Summer 19 "Aureus" collection was recently launched. "Aureus", derived from the latin word "golden", epitomizes this season both in texture, colour and the state of mind it evokes. Every item is perfect for beach days, golden sands, sun-kissed skins and deep blue oceans.

    If you, like us, are part of the world's population that enjoys tropical Christmases, this is a must-peruse shop before the celebrations.

    Last year around this time I wrote a post entitled "How To Cure A Minimalist Wardrobe". There I talk about purging a closet and the mindful exercise of learning to make sensible choices when it comes to fashion.

    What I didn’t talk about there was the minimalistic qualities of couture and why I think it makes a difference in how people perceive fashion. I know, I know… to each their own but hear me out for a bit. Minimalism has slipped its way into every realm of the fashion world because it just makes sense.

    Like everything that is created using minimalism and mindfulness as stepping stones, minimalist fashion focuses on functionality, quality and pays attention to the details. It’s honest and it’s developed from sketch to the end piece with the utmost of respect for the materials, the craft and the person who will wear it.

    That is the same approach that Australian power duo, Sara Donaldson and Georgia Martin took when creating The Undone—A unique online shopping destination, distinctly concerned with quality and aesthetics. The focus is on wardrobe essentials. In pieces that are not mere "basic" but which also engage women with a sophisticated, functional and unique fashion experience.

    They have a high standard for service and offer a small yet stunning selection of designers.

    From their website, their carefully curated images, down to their beautiful packaging, The Undone is a safe place for minimalists to invest. Below are 6 of my favorite.
Here you’ll find curated stories and products from both established and emerging talents; celebrating culture through art, fashion, design and architecture. Please note that we may receive a small commission when you buy using our product links.
