Meet Lisa Aiken, fashion director of Moda Operandi and one of our personal style icons here at Who What Wear. Lisa is championed within the industry for setting trends and spotting new designers like it’s no one’s business. No really—if there’s a cool new brand or rising trend, she’s not only already wearing it but has also edited it into Moda Operandi’s shopping selection for all to enjoy. Since we’re always looking to Lisa for our next shopping move, we’re thrilled she’s agreed to join us as a columnist on the site, serving the latest and greatest when it comes to trends, style, and shopping. Today, it is with great honor and excitement that we welcome her as she discusses all the pretty spring trends she’s eyeing for the season at hand.
As we’re now fully into the spring months, it’s time to actually start implementing the trends that we took note of last season when the collections walked down the runway. I’m currently drawn to trends that are super feminine, even though I’m not. I come from the minimalist camp where I think about pieces from a wardrobing sensibility. The key here is really in the styling. So while long peasant-y florals might be having a moment, I’m thinking about them in a different way. Same goes for the puffed sleeve. Here are the five feminine trends that I shouldn’t and wouldn’t normally like but for some reason really do.
