Excited about the Desert Daze style? Read on to learn what to keep an eye out for this spring… 

Dazzling Desert Daze Trend Colors

Indulge in this season’s stunning Desert Daze trend color palette that features tones inspired by land, sea and sky. The way the sun glimmers on water in the middle of a desert oasis influences bright blue and mustard yellow in the Desert Daze color story. The earthy tones of rock formations translate to rich brick reds and brown adobe colors while desert brush ensures that olive greens are Desert Daze color staples. Neutrals are not forgotten—lean into dark grays, blacks and creams to complement the brighter hues of the season.

A Focus on Style Details

The Desert Daze trend combines soft and structured fabrics to create a look with a perfect blend of textural elements. Seek out woven tops that feature gorgeous, artisanal embroidered details, blouses with ruffles or balloon sleeves and in the few first weeks of spring, oversized sweaters and cardigans to wrap you in warmth. Sweaters that feature handcrafted details like intricate weave patterns, poms and fringe will offer a laid back boho feel to your look that you’ll love to cozy up in. Contrast these delectable Desert Daze tops with the structure of classic denim or woven pants. Don’t forget to add a pair of sandals, and you’ll be stepping out in style.

Stylist Tip: As the spring chill starts to wane and the weather warms up, these Desert Daze tops pair perfectly with boho inspired utility or bermuda shorts. Loosely front tuck an embroidered blouse into them and add a pair of slip-on, leather mule flats.

Refresh your Pants and Denim for Desert Daze Fashion

Denim and woven pant silhouettes relax a little more this spring as Desert Daze denim features your favorite jeans in wide, bootcut and straight-leg cuts. Not only are these wider leg styles on trend, they’ll help keep you cool as temps rise. We know that skinnies have been in the limelight for the last few years but wide, bootcut and straight-leg silhouettes will look equally amazing this spring. Bootcut jeans help balance your shape, and wide-leg bottoms lengthen a petite frame while straight-leg jeans are universally flattering.

Stylist Tip: Be on the lookout for denim or woven pants that feature Desert Daze style details such as a button fly, utility or cargo pockets, and darting or pleating. If skinny jeans continue to be a mainstay in your wardrobe, try a pair with embroidered detailing to refresh your denim for the spring.

Meander Around in Midi Dresses 

Midi dresses take on a seasonal Desert Daze trend refresh this spring with a perfect blend of boho and romantic detailing. The midi dress is the perfect springtime option with a hemline that hits somewhere in between your knee and ankle, resulting in a length that is flattering on just about everybody. Ikat, boho and vintage floral motifs will adorn long-sleeve and short-sleeve dresses this season resulting in a dreamy, effortless and carefree festival feel. Looking for something a little more modern? Try a midi dress in an updated decorative dot pattern.

Soak up the Desert Daze Sun in Stylish Skirts

Stylish skirts are taking on the Desert Daze trend in various lengths from mini to maxi. When the weather warms up, show off a little skin in a short skirt that features embroidery or button details. Want to give midi or maxi skirts a try this spring? Don a maxi skirt with ruffle details and pair it with a casual, tie-front tank. Be sure to layer up in brisk spring weather by adding a chunky sweater or a fringe-adorned cardigan. Neutral colored shoes will elongate your frame, complete your ensemble and keep the spotlight on your Desert Daze-inspired skirt.
