Here in Houston, it's nearly time to swap coats, layers, and the ever-present hoodie for those warm weather looks. Just in time, three big brands have made it easy to prepare for spring and summer trends with fabulous colorways, a nod to '90s nostalgia – which is all over the runways this season – and the ultimate recipe for glowing skin.
Houston shoppers, get ready for this month's add-to-cart moment.
During her summer travels, Houston-based designer Hunter Bell fell in love with Spanish shoe brand Sveti Stefan. Bell admired the brand so much, she decided to do an across-the-pond collaboration. Bell and Sveti Stefan are both known for their bold use of colors and patterns; the Hunter Bell patterns on Sveti Stefan shoes make for whimsical footwear that can be mixed and matched with nearly any outfit.
Available in a loafer style and Mary Janes, the shoes come in three colorways — perfect for spring. The shoes can be dressed up or down with shorts, jeans, dresses, and skirts.
"Sveti Stefan makes beautiful, high-quality shoes and incorporates bright colors and patterns, so we are thrilled to debut this collaboration of like-minded brands," says Bell. "I love seeing our spring patterns on footwear and being able to dress the HB woman down to her toes!"

Spring and summer wardrobes just got hotter with the drop of Gucci's latest collection. The collection marks the debut of creative director Sabato De Sarno. The line is meant to make shoppers "fall in love with fashion all over again."
Gucci's new collection comprises tailored coats, super-short shorts, logo hoodies, body-skimming tanks, knit sets, and the return of the double GG skinny belt. The always-iconic Jackie bag is one of the stars of the collection, this time in a dark burgundy hue.
