Nordstrom Fashion Director Predicts Hottest Spring Trends

Get ahead of the seasonal shift with Nordstrom’s curated selection

As spring approaches, fashion enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the latest trends that will dominate the season. To gain insights into the hottest spring trends, I had the opportunity to speak with Nordstrom’s fashion director, Rickie De Sole. With her expertise in merchandising, De Sole offers valuable predictions on the styles that Nordstrom shoppers will be clamoring for. From flats and trench coats to chunky silver jewelry and preppy pieces, De Sole’s selections are sure to inspire your spring wardrobe.

Flats and Kitten Heels:

Gone are the days of uncomfortable six-inch stilettos. De Sole notes that shoppers, including celebrities, are opting for comfortable flats or kitten heels that offer both style and comfort. For those looking to splurge, she recommends The Row’s Kitten Heel. However, if you’re on a budget, Jeffrey Campbell’s Persona Slingback Pump Heels are a fantastic alternative, available in a range of colors and patterns. For a low-to-the-ground style that adds a modern twist to traditional flats, Sarto by Franco Sarto’s Tracy Slingback Square-Toe Flat or Sam Edelman’s Zuri Ballet Flat are excellent choices.

Trench Coats:

De Sole suggests that the classic trench coat is receiving a refreshing update this spring. Adding an elevated option to your wardrobe is a must, and Cinq à Sept’s style with a white contrasting floral detail fits the bill perfectly. If you’re looking to inject some color into your outerwear, Bernardo’s Cotton-Twill Topper Jacket or Avec Les Filles’ Relaxed Belted Twill Trench Coat are great options. For a more daring take on the trench coat, Good American offers a modern cropped version that adds a contemporary twist to the timeless staple.

Chunky Silver Jewelry:

Silver jewelry has made a significant comeback in recent years, and De Sole predicts that it will be bigger than ever this spring. She suggests playing with scale to strike the perfect balance with understated looks. Lié Studio’s The Klara Drop Earrings and Leah Ring are great starting points to embrace the oversized trend. If you’re looking to dip your toes into chunky silver accessories without breaking the bank, Panacea’s Bubble Hoop Earrings are an affordable option. For those committed to making a statement, the St. Moran Oversize Curb Link Chain Necklace is a must-have.

Preppy Styles:

De Sole reveals that preppy style is making a comeback for spring, including collared shirts, sweater vests, and other pieces that exude a preppy vibe. Mother’s The Hot Under-the-Collar Stripe Pointelle Polo Sweater is a fun and versatile pick that can be worn throughout the summer. Madewell offers a similar polo at a more affordable price. For breezy spring days, layering with Mango’s Side-Slit Quarter-Zip Sweater Vest and pairing it with Vince’s wide-leg trousers creates a classic preppy look.

White Dresses:

An effortless white dress perfectly captures the levity of springtime, according to De Sole. Nordstrom’s selection includes Reformation’s Mikol Pleated Midi Dress and Vince’s Sleeveless Sheath Dress, both boasting timeless silhouettes and longer lengths for those not yet ready to bare their legs. If you’re in the market for a shorter white dress, Topshop’s Long-Sleeve Tiered Poplin Minidress or French Connection’s Echo Crepe Midi Halter Dress are excellent choices.


With Nordstrom’s fashion director, Rickie De Sole, offering her predictions for the hottest spring trends, shoppers can confidently curate their wardrobes for the upcoming season. From comfortable flats and trench coats to chunky silver jewelry and preppy styles, Nordstrom provides a curated selection to suit every fashion enthusiast’s taste. Embrace the trends and get ready to make a stylish statement this spring.
