Spring Forward: Otte

Click the Polyvore set to shop.

In the fourth week of our Spring Forward series, we have Kay Lee of Otte New York sounding off on three of her favorite trends for the season. The shop began as a boutique in Williamsburg, Brooklyn fifteen years ago, since expanding to an army of five boutiques across New York City, a killer online store, and an in-house label.

So what's the retail veteran feeling for spring? Lee fully backs the skater slip-ons we're seeing crop up everywhere as part of a larger sneaker trend. She's also feeling prints: On pants and in all iterations of tie-dye, to be specific. Check out her spring picks—plus how to wear them—from brands like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Kenzo, and Upstate after the jump.
