SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — March is a month of new beginnings, as San Franciscans celebrate the onset of spring and Easter festivities. The city is ready to throw off the heavy fabrics and dark colors of winter fashion to embrace spring collections made up of bright floral and print checks, layered lace and retro details.

Today’s fashion industry – now more than ever – emboldens individual style and welcomes the beauty of self-expression through garments. Both ladies and little girls’ style preferences are expressed through cuts, materials and colors. Ultimately, spring’s hottest fashion trend is stylish functionality – from runway to ready-to-wear.

Hop over to San Francisco Premium Outlets this month to explore spring looks that speak in your fashion voice. Whether it’s sweet get-ups for little girls for Easter, or on-trend dresses for ladies, you’ll find everything you need to look smart this spring.

Chic spring fashion inspiration can be found in everything from casual wear to swanky handbags:
