Reah is also proud and honoured to have been recently named the Plus Fashion Stylist of the Year for 2010 by Full Figured Fashion Week. Here she shares with us her favourite trends for the upcoming spring season.
Spring transition can be a very tricky time in fashion and very often my clients ask me what is appropriate to wear during these transitional months before spring is in full swing. At this point, we have put away our sequins, satin and velvet from our winter wardrobes, but we are not quite ready for our sandals and sundresses. In order to make it super effortless and take the guessing out of getting dressed for spring transition, I have put together some of my favorite items from Evan’s to highlight my three favorite trends that you can wear right now!
Neutrals are an absolute must have this time of year. These basic items are subtle, understated, easy to mix and match, and help bring us back to centre after all of the holiday dazzle. The best thing about neutrals is that they are timeless and versatile, so you can wear them well into the spring and summer months.

1- Beige Floral Hanky Hem Jumper, Black Jersey Side Leggings, Multi-Strap Buckle Platforms, 3 Flower Fabric Clips, Enamel Swirl Ring
2- Mink Pin Tuck Blouse, Tan Soft Brogues, Floral Zip Flap Purse, Mixed Stone Ring
3- Mocha Pocket Woven Shirt, Mink Drapery Utility Trouser, Beige Biker Boot, Sodamix Tassel Bag, Silver Lariat Necklace, 3 Band Wrapped Rings
The nautical trend is the absolute classic for spring transition that is seen, without a doubt, every year at this time. I love this trend because it is based on the resort/holiday lifestyle, and it is clean, crisp and looks very fresh. Navy and white mixed with stripes, yellow, red and pops of gold are easy to wear both everyday or on a holiday.

Floral prints and accessories are being seen everywhere this time of year, in endless colors, prints, styles. Most of the florals we are currently seeing are more muted colors and smaller ditsy prints, and as we move into the spring and summer months we will see these timeless prints become larger, brighter and more saturated. Enjoy wearing these fabulous, small, muted ditsy prints now with leggings, jeans, flats, boots, and a cute cardigan, and layer your winter jacket on top if it’s still a bit chilly.
