Spring for It
Local style experts highlight the hottest fashions for the season. By Lauren Zaremba and Lauren Montenegro
“Americana is a trend that draws on all things truly American. It’s a look for every guy, no matter how fashion-minded. We carry Scotch & Soda. The shirts are amazing and have a great comfortable feel and style. If you’re a T-shirt and jeans guy, this is your look.”
John Price, Men’s Buyers Assistant and Charlie Groom, Men’s Buyer, South Moon Under, Rehoboth Beach
“This sounds a little ridiculous, but we have a ’70s-inspired collection that features long maxi dresses, but with more volume. Long dresses are popular. Lots and lots of stripes.”
