5 Refreshing Fashion Items We’re Digging For Spring, Including Eye-Popping Prints, Colorful Fruit + Veggie Earrings, and Citrusy Soaps

by Lisa Butterworth


Bewitching Prods 

DW2A5682 1800x1800 6973c

We are suckers for a good-smelling bar soap, and the women at Sea Witch Botanicals deliver—like the absinthe-scented Green Fairy and the patchouli-citrus Hermitage ($14 each, All their goods (which include bath, body, and home products, too) are handmade, cruelty-free, and sustainably packaged, “made with the health of your body and the environment in mind.” –Lisa Butterworth


Cuckoo for Coco 

COCO 2 c5f36

Talent runs in the Fennell family. You probably know writer, actor, and Promising Young Woman director Emerald, but her sister, Coco, makes eye-popping dresses you’ve likely spied on at least one cool celeb—everyone from Rihanna to Busy Philipps loves her bright patterns, balloon sleeves, and sexy silhouettes. The best part? They’re sold at regular-people prices: nothing’s over £149( 


Happy Mending 


When it comes to creative clothing fixes, Scottish knitwear designer Flora Collingwood-Norris is a stitching star. Her new book, Visible Creative Mending for Knitwear (£28,, gives you the know-how to slay your own repairs, from colorful darning to fixing frayed cuffs, all with cheerful design in mind


Pant Rant 


I like Big Bud and I cannot lie. The L.A.-based clothing brand offers all kinds of incredibly wearable basics in a rainbow of colors in sizes XXS to 6XL, but it’s their Work Pants ($105, that are absolute perfection. The fabric is soft but sturdy and they’ve got elastic in the back for ultimate high-waist comfort—they’re go-with-everything gold. 


Wear Your Fruits and Veggies

WOLL 4d935

Elizabeth Woll’s jewelry has the vibe of vintage Bakelite with a totally modern feel. Her cute and colorful fruit and veggie earrings ($45 to $55, even offer a choose-your-own adorable adventure: pick the size (small, medium, large), the findings (silver or gold), and the style (post or ear hook), too.
