New York Fashion Week got us excited for colors and playsuits, but we're thrilled to take style pointers from the Brits this time. See below which trends will soon dominate our spring closets, courtesy of British designers.
Spring brings about new life and so it definitely calls for pretty colors. While we're already reaching for brights like yellows and fluoro pinks, we're still making space for pastels as soft hues take center stage on the runways of Anya Hindmarch, Roland Mouret, and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. But what we're loving on this season's iteration of pastels is that it takes form through structured silhouettes and is brought to life via prints and textured fabrics.

2. Spliced Panels
Fashion is a craft. So this spring, we're aiming to look like DIY art as designers like Antonio Berdadi, Roberta Einer, and Peter Pilotto encourage us to wear stitched panels and patches of different printed and solid-colored fabrics. But the challenge lies in finding unity among the prints and hues spliced to create one outfit. Thank goodness, you don't have to do that on your own, right?
3. Slashed Cutouts
Cutouts are back this spring but quite not in the way you expect. Officewear gets an edgy twist under Ralph & Russo, sultry slashes rule Marta Jakubowski's collection, while Christopher Kane gives deep cuts on your closet basics.

Roksanda, JW Anderson, Alexandra Moura prove that strings are the new bows. Tying things together gives that nonchalant and undone vibe to your outfit, so for this season, we're ditching the polished trims and instead opting for floppy strings.
Sheer never gets old. But for spring, designers like Molly Goddard, TOGA, and Erdem push for you to go all out when wearing the trend. From dresses to skirts, and even socks, a sheer detail makes your outfit look light, frothy, and fresh. They also make the best pieces to layer, even in spring!
Tiered, delicate, and moves with your every step, what's not to love about ruffles? Forget anything sparkly, Simone Rocha, David Koma, and Christopher Kane make ruffles the focal point of your spring closet.
7. Storm gear
Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane, and Mary Katrantzou continue to elevate athleisure, including your fave rain gear. This season, windbreakers, raincoats, and anoraks get a designer upgrade. Sportswear is seen mashed up with candy-colored hues and experimented with different fabrics and cuts. Forget bomber or military jackets. Anoraks and rain gear from the '80s are back and look perfect paired with high-wasited bottoms and slip dresses.
