Small town squares and big city boulevards everywhere are brimming with the rites of spring right now. There is a veritable army of happy-go-lucky mannequins waving at us from each store window…”Wear color again, please!” they plead, as they promote patterns and punchy paraphernalia. Yes, it’s finally time to pack up our woolies and get with the program…so celebrate Spring 2014 with us at Graphique! Here’s a look at the hottest trends in fashion and accessories – all the cool mannequins are sporting these!
1. Polka Dots
Pack a punch with Polka! This trend has a lovely sense of humor, an uplifting vibe that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but is always classic. These darling dots show up both large and small this spring. Ours adorn our “Love Many Things” iPad cover, our purse notes and more. Where will yours pop up?
“The chevron pattern is both a trend and a tradition- when used properly and sparingly can have a dramatically wonderful aesthetic appeal that will never go out of style.” Kristen Morrison – fashion blogger
Yes, Charlie Brown was ahead of his time donning his chevron patterned jumper! While this trend has been floating around a while, it’s a testament to universal appeal that it it’s still popping up and down on everything from blouses to bedding and beyond! We love our Chevron Stylus pen and boxed note sets for men & women alike!
“Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
Just like that river twisting through a dusty land…” – Duran Duran
There is something mystical about tribal prints. Not for the fashion faint of heart, these bold geometric patterns were the world’s first storytellers. This season, notice tribal influences everywhere, as bold colors in bright greens and vibrant orange tones announce the arrival of balmy weather. Pair your ensembles with our equally bold IPhone covers for a look that is nothing short of fierce.

We wholeheartedly agree that pink is perfection, and this spring it shows a tender side in the hue of blush. Call it romantic, preppy, or plain ol’ pretty – just make sure to have something pink on your person or in your purse this Spring!
So get out into the world and breathe in the scent of Spring…change is in the air, and we at Graphique are eating our lunch outside today – even if it rains!
