Baltimore fashion: Trade your winter blahs for spring boldsby Meekah Hopkins February 15, 2009 at 9:08 pm Posted in Baltimore, Lifestyles, b the paper, baltimore news






global printsThink tribal couture. Ethnic-patterned halters and dresses in flirty, fun cuts play up this trend. “The longer length and African print dresses are huge trends right now. It’s bohemian chic for spring!” says Cupcake owner Lisa Schatz. Try on the Love Shop blue and gold leaf maxi-length dress, $120, or Echo Design Group’s turquoise Kati-print tunic, $78. “Gladiator sandals are still going to be around … flats really work with this [type of look],” Schatz recommends.

mixed patternsBe daring. Polka dots with flowers? Checks and stripes? You bet. “As long as it’s not too crazy,” warns whimsy/Reason’s Nikki Reese. “Men’s fashion is getting edgier too.” Owner Pearson suggests pairing a Ben Sherman gray checkered zip-up sweater, $95, with a green nautical striped Drifter shirt, $52, and faded-black William Rast jeans, $218, for a casual yet sophisticated modern look. Ladies will want to wear an infusion of polka dots and garden prints by label Nu Collective, sold at Cupcake in Fells Point. The dress, $289, is one of owner Lisa Schatz’s favorites.
