Spring is a fantastic time to start building one's seasonal wardrobe and to road test the biggest summer trends. From the prairie girl to the shorts suit we highlight the five runway trends to try now. 

The Shorts Suit: Adapt to the climbing temperatures with a season-appropriate shorts suit. Steer more towards softer fabrics with a slight sheen such as satin and silk in hues of pink or black like this 3.1 Phillip Lim set.
