Let's take at look at the three trends.

1. Great Expectations is the most romantic, pretty trend of the season with its Victorian influences (and Charles Dickens novel reference).

The color palette is soft, with petal pink, rose and bluebell as the main colors. Materials are transparent, with organza, Swiss dots, jacquard, and eyelet. Graphics are not just about flowers. There are also toile wallpaper motifs (like on this porcelain tumbler).

More is more when it comes to design details. There are ruffles, tiers, lace-up details that mimic corsets, and higher necklines. Key items are the off-the-shoulder top, mid-calf prairie dress, A-line skirt, matched top and skirt set, the ruffled maxi dress, poet blouse (like this cotton voile style), slip dress with embellishments (like this satin style), ankle wrap sandals (like these wedge espadrilles), saddle bags, and belted waists. See lust worthy brand Zimmermann for more inspiration and examples.

2. Prairie Rose is like Great Expectations, but geared toward a younger, Juniors' market. It's about a sweet country girl. It's a pretty, bohemian way of dress with romance, Western roots, and a hint of Victorian inspiration.

The color palette is light and grounded with earth elements like rose, periwinkle, chili powder, bisque, and ivy green.

3. Boot Camp is influenced by the athleisure and fitness trend. It's competitive, with a rough, girl-squad feel. It's sporty, street-minded, and hardcore with urban inspiration.
