After offering five unique ways to approach this season in style, we've reached the final installment of our Spring Forward series. Closing out the show is beloved Pacific Palisades boutique Elyse Walker, aka West LA's answer to Rodeo Drive.
Here, the shop's multitasking founder of the same name has identified three stellar trends to shop in-store via a handful of high fashion designers.
Fringe: "Fringe is back. Paired with a floral dress, top or skirt, a fringe bootie or jacket can add a bit of a bohemian flair to a conservative feminine outfit."
Studs and Spikes: "From the Saint Laurent Rangers studded motorcycle boots to the popular Valentino Rockstud pump, it's a trend that has carried over for a few seasons, which I love. When paired with something a bit softer and more feminine and flirty, the studs and spikes provide just the right amount of toughness and sexy edge."
