Hu's Spring Forward

Click the Polyvore set to shop the pieces.

We've visited Wink and Redeem, and now the third stop on our Spring Forward tour is a two-fer: we're getting the spring trend lowdown at Hu's Shoes and Hu's Wear in Georgetown. Located in two separate storefronts within a block of each other, both shops showcase an out-of-this-world collection of designer pieces. Hu's Wear's Tara Luizzi took us on a spin through Hu's Shoes and Hu's Wear and picked out some truly inspiring pieces — Givenchy skater shoes and cobalt blue purses, anyone? — for sunny, 70-degree days that are surely on their way.

Spring Florals: Florals get a little twist at Hu's, as seen on Peter Pilotto's geometric blouse and Givenchy's take on the Van in a floral print. Also in the store at Hu's Wear, find a small collection of Erdem pieces in beautiful floral prints.

Blue: "Blue is huge, it's everywhere," Luizzi said. And sure enough, gorgeous cobalt blues and teals were everywhere we looked at Hu's. Accessories are a great place to dip into the trend, from a Yves Klein-blue Saint Laurent structured purse or two-toned heel, or Proenza Schouler's shimmery aquamarine bag.

Graphics: Pump up your wardrobe this spring with a piece in a striking graphic print or shape. Luizzi pulled a sleeveless black and white Yigal Azrouel dress that she said could fit a lot of different personalities and occasions. "I love how he used the splash of neon color," Luizzi said. Like the print? It's available in a slouchy pant too, sans neon. Over at Hu's Shoes, you'll find a Fendi pump with a mirrored, architectural heel. "It's a disco shoe," Luizzi told us. Sign us up for the disco.
