I'm the Head Buyer at a Big Fashion Company—These Spring Picks Have My Attention

Shopbop is routinely one of our go-to shops. After all, the mega-retailer stocks quite the variety of merchandise. We’re talking everything from quality basics to trendy staples to those investment-worthy designer items. So when we had the opportunity to chat with one of the masterminds behind the A+ offering, we couldn’t resist. And that brings us to why we’re here today. Stephanie Nelson Roberson, GMM and head of buying, shared with us some of the key spring trends and specific pieces she’s personally loving at the moment. And given that you might be starting to prep your spring wardrobe, we thought there could be interest in learning more.

Below you’ll uncover an edit of the general spring picks that have caught Roberson's attention recently. Many of the picks in question also align with Shopbop's new campaign, the Spring Trend Edit. To showcase said items, we pulled visual inspiration from some of our favorite fashion people and then shopped out each with a range of inspired products. Intrigued? Wonderful.

1. High-Volume Silhouettes

"I am absolutely loving voluminous dresses for spring. From puff sleeves to tented silhouettes, these pieces make for beautiful (and effortless!) staples in my wardrobe."—Roberson

2. Pretty Pastels

"This season is all about mood-boosting pieces. These sherbet-hued shades are perfect for the spring weather. Think cornflower blues, blush pinks, lavenders, lemons, and mint."

3. Straight-Leg Jeans

"This season, I’m focusing on the straight-leg '90s style when it comes to my denim. They make for a relaxed, polished, and flattering look. The best part? They can be styled up or down, from day to night."

4. Bold Jewelry

"Look to bold jewelry as the newest update for the season. We are seeing this trend across categories, from rings to necklaces and hoop earrings."

5. Modern Slides

"Comfort is key when it comes to footwear. My go-to look this spring will include a pair of no-hands-required slides, perfect for warmer weather. We’re seeing major updates on a classic style—fun embellishments, unexpected fabrications, and chunky soles."

6. Eye-Catching Dresses

"Spring is in full bloom and so are bright, garden-style florals. From oversize flowers to saturated hues, this season’s bold prints are sure to bring an optimistic outlook to our closets."

"Knitting, crocheting, quilting and weaving are making a major comeback this season. The beautiful homespun details add an edge to any look, and I love the intricate craftsmanship this trend lends itself to."
