"Lingerie for daywear is major, with the slip dress as a new wardrobe staple. To keep it from reading too bedroom-eyes, layer it under a bomber jacket for a casual look." — Melissa Moylan
"Big statement jewelry has had a good run with chunky jewels and clusters, but it's time to retire it." — Melissa Moylan
"The newest silhouette of the season is off the shoulder, featured on tops or dresses. If you love peasant blouses, off-the-shoulder styles should be your new go-to." — Melissa Moylan
"Wedge sneakers were a big part of the athleisure trend when it started. While all other things active are still trending, it's time to move on from wedge sneakers." — Melissa Moylan
"As Cuba opens its doors to the world, it becomes a huge design inspiration. It's perfect for summer because it's tropical and bright, while Spanish influence brings in ruffles and intricate lace styles." — Melissa Moylan
"Photos turned into screens on T-shirts were cool for awhile, but it's time to give them up. We see enough photos on our social media feeds!" — Melissa Moylan
"Take your pick—sandals, flats, and espadrilles are all game for trendy lace-up details on shoes." — Melissa Moylan
"It's time to retire mint in favor of other pastel hues like rose and bluebell." — Melissa Moylan
"Suede is driven in part by the '70s. Our favorite applications include suede skirts, jackets, and accessories. Combine prairie girl florals with suede for a soft Western look." — Melissa Moylan
"Pants that are baggy at the top and tapered at the bottom rose to popularity with printed styles. But let's face it, peg pants are not flattering on most of us. Retire!" — Melissa Moylan
