Spring Style Trends with Stacy Smallwood
Stacy Smallwood of Hampden knows how to spot a trend. Whether it is attending the top shows during fashion week or helping a friend shop for the perfect dress at Hampden, Stacy has that knack for creating the perfect (but effortless) look for any occasion. To celebrate the opening of our first store in Charleston, we looked to Stacy to share the style trends we should be on the lookout for when updating our spring wardrobes. Read on to hear her take on the colors, shapes, and designers that you should keep your eye on this season.




Trend: Neon


Neon pink and yellow dominated the runways this Spring 19 season and one great way to wear this big, bold trend is through accessories. Think about throwing on a simple white dress and having your pop of color be your fabulous new shoes!

Trend: 80s


Tie dye ruled the runways this Spring 19 in a return to the 80’s influencing everything from clothing to jewelry. With acid washed jeans, chunky lucite jewelry, prepster stripes, and khaki trenches, you can add a few key pieces to your current wardrobe to feel like you are current with the trends. A colorful trench from Tibi is a cool way to do add a bold pop of color and a trench in your wardrobe.  

R13 always brings a bit of rock & roll to their collection, but the grunge 80’s factor makes it so on trend this season. And let’s be truthful, leopard never goes out of style, but it was present in so many collections that I think we can officially say that it is important for Spring 19. This leopard robe coat would be such a cool statement to layer over a cocktail dress, a pair of jeans and a tee, or even a white dress and boots.

Trend: Yellow


Yellow! Even mentioning this color brings out a love/hate reaction from people, but it is definitely a trend we will continue to see this Spring 19. I love it in this Aspesi suit because suits are typically thought of for work but they are being shown with tennis shoes and heels this season for a more versatile look. There are so many different shades of yellow so don’t rule it out completely. I love the mustard shade of this SEA NY dress and the ease of the wrap style. It fits the trends but also fits a woman’s lifestyle.

Trend: Fun Accessories 


There are so many fun ways to re-invent your existing wardrobe by adding in a few key pieces for the Spring 19 season. Be bold by rocking a headband - they make the perfect statement. Try throwing on a tie dye tee shirt with your jeans, layer a khaki trench over top, and finish it with a statement neon shoe. Fun accessories are always a great way to change your look too so try a headband from Gigi Burris, a few chunky lucite cuffs from Lizzie Fortunato, and a mule heel from Tabitha Simmons
