>> fierce florals is the first one.

>> fierce florals, you're sporting it, we're sporting it and here we have cindy and maddie, and it is not about the little wall flower . it's about florals with attitude this season. so first we have little maddie, and in this gorgeous dress, talk about flower power with big pink flowers on it, this is by jane copeland, just $40. just as great for easter as it is for a spring party.

>> adorable.

>> pairing it with a sweater from h&h for $9 and the giant floral head band , $4.95, this is an easy way to get in on the trend. cindy almost looks like an impressionist painting, great tropical colors, bold florals, the dress is $118 from susie chen.

>> thank you so much. our next trend is you're calling punchy prints.

>> when it comes to prints go bold or go home this season and here we have nicole showing us how it's done, and we've got this gorgeous sort of tunic top by jones new york and we love the print, it's super bold. we have a little spring shine, love the embellishments and the beading detail. it's a very st. tropez look. very chic.

>> could you wear that shirt with black pants or a skirt?

>> great point, black pants, black skirt or other prints which is a big trend. here we paired it with a capri jean, $69, that's the new length the shorter length.

>> nicole thank you so much. you look great. our next trend is graphic black and white which i love this time of year.

>> here we have kristy looking gorgeous, it's the easiest trend to do and might be the biggest we picked, come off the spring runways and the major coat from zara, a statement piece, half black, half white. we spared it with stripes a big hallmark of the stripe. pencil skirt from armani jane and here is the shoe of the season a white pump. women don't wait until summer t gives an edge for any outfit.

>> white pumps are back. thank you so much. the next trend is electric bright.

>> it is the color of the season. it looks great on everyone. it just reflects beautifully, and these are $15 from h&m and just a little edgy shoe with some studs on it. she looks so hot.

>> she's wearing a neutral shoe.

>> yes we dial it down a little bit for the shoe because she's got a lot going on. that's a great option, wear a neutral shoe with tons of bright color.

>> jane thank you so much. our electric girl will come in later, and we have saved the best for last, a gorgeous spring bride.

>> a blushing bride. here we have katie, just floating down the aisle in this beautiful, romantic dress by w2 bridal by water and we've seen a lot of the body conscious dresses but this spring we're seeing gorgeous volume and sort of a ball gown silhouette and ruffles big trend in bridal this season and just i mean could you see a more beautiful bride?

>> gorgeous and we're sorry, miss katie, we know it's chilly. strapless continues to be in.

>> we're seeing so much strapless but kate middleton brought in the sleeves so we're seeing strapless or sleeves.
