Kaitland Hunter, the lead stylist for CakeStyle shows the hottest color combinations for the season. CakeStyle is a virtual personal styling service for women that sends a box of handpicked clothing and accessories to members' door each season.
1) Spring Leather: Leather was a big fall trend, and is still huge this spring, and you'll see it best represented as modifications to a full leather coat ? as on a vest or as details on a dress or shirt. It's the perfect transitional item for the woman who lives in her leather coat but needs a lighter version for the next season.
Clothing Shown: Ricky Leather V Vest: $304
Solid Smooth Tank: $38
Chevron Ankle Skinny Cobalt: $218
2) Black and White: The art of contrast. The colors black and white, when mixed together, are classic but still help you stand out. Try a white panel in the center of a dress with black along the sides for a lengthening look. This trend also looks fantastic with accessories with a pop of color.
Clothing Shown: Ryann Dress Rich Black : $298
3) Icy Pastels: Icy pastels (lilac, mint and turquoise)- These look fantastic paired with neutrals as it will complement the look while also softening your ensemble. Mint is a must-have color for the season.

Alexis Skirt Turquoise $248
4) Sheer: We suggest wearing sheers with a camisole underneath, or under a jacket. Then, when you're ready for night, you can pop the jacket off and look chic for drinks or dinner. It's so versatile you can wear it on many occasions! Plus the jacket looks great with jeans on the weekend.

5) Mixed patterns- Pattern mixing can be scary and while a lot of brands lately are doing the print mixing for you (mixing prints within the garment) you can easily mix and match with items in your own closet. The key is finding common colors to tie the patterns together. Don't forget, you can also mix a textured fabric in a solid color with a pattern for a similar, but muted effect.
