Find Your Spring Style Must Haves

As the polar vortex makes way for sunny skies and above-freezing temperatures, Westfield Old Orchard sprinkles its park-like shopping center with a welcome sight: spring must-haves!


Senior marketing director Shannon Ridgeway shares the trends of the (long-awaited) season:

1. 50 Shades of Blue 

“One of the hottest hues for spring is any variation of blue, from chambray and turquoise to navy and cerulean. Stock up on chic basics from retailers like Madewell.”

2. Don’t Sweat It

“In a city with weather as unpredictable at ours, luxe sweatshirts embellished with embroidery or patterns are a simple way to stay trend-forward and warm. Stop by Splendid for a chic selection.”

3. Flat Out Footwear

“Find a flat shoe that fits your style. While the Birkenstock has returned, you can also invest in an ankle-strap sandal, sophisticated loafer, or even a play on a slip-on sneaker. Check out Nordstrom for the perfect addition to stay stylish and comfortable while running errands.”

4. Put Mesh to the Test

“Whether it’s a cardigan, blouse or skirt, find a piece with mesh detailing. As we shed layers, it adds office-appropriate allure.”
