Spring Fashion Must-Haves

Looking for some new pieces to freshen up your spring wardrobe? Local boutique owners weigh in on the season’s new must-haves.



“Short dresses in colorful and playful patterns with pockets and sweetheart necklines are really in. Ali Ro Dresses are so fashion-forward and easy to thrown on, and the prices are great.”
Robin White, owner of Mount Kisco’s NY Dolls

“Coral is a really strong color for spring, and wide-leg pants are very big. Also popular is the bohemian look. I like a flowing bohemian type of top, like those by Trina Turk and Tracy Reese.”
Lynn Puro, owner of March Boutique in Briarcliff Manor

“It’s going to be a very laid-back spring, so I like bohemian, ethnic-style sheer vests with beadwork, handmade in India, and a lot of beautiful scarves for layering. And for denim, high-waisted flares are big.”
Susan Martin, owner of Ruby Sue in Katonah

“You have to have a pair of flare jeans, positively, like those from J. Brand or Rich & Skinny.”
Elaine Andriotis, owner of Beginnings Boutique in Scarsdale

“It’s all about the dress—short, little, flirty dresses in great prints and great colors that you can slip on and go out the door. And for pants, we’re going back to a bootleg or a wider leg kind of bottom.”
Eric Newland, owner of Designer One in Larchmont

“The color palette has changed and there are earth tones in lighter fabrics. There are lush beiges, browns, and khakis in silks, cottons, and linens which are all really new and wonderful.”
Carolyn Schneider, owner of Lola in Rye

“Spring bags—like our Michelle Vale taupe leather tote with python straps—are the perfect accessories to pop your white denim and flirty spring dresses.”
Lori Land, co-owner of Churchills of Mount Kisco in Mount Kisco

"A must-have is a cargo jacket, because you can dress it up at night or wear it during the day with shorts or jeans. Also, a pair of mid-waist bell-bottoms. And there’s nothing like a cool, cotton dress, belted. In fact, belt anything this year!”
Debbi Jennings, co-owner of Larchmont’s Suede
