"Spring 2014 is all about Coachella," says The Geisha House boutique owner Cortney Cohen. But more importantly, it's the season of taking chances: "To catch these spring trends you have to be confident and carefree," she says. "Everyone just needs a style Xanax and to stop trying so hard. If you like it, wear it; that's how a trend begins."

Read on to learn more about The Geisha House's leading trends—festival-ready lace, body jewelry, and distressed denim—and the LA-based label that's already spurred a waitlist at Cohen's Old City boutique.

"I've always been a huge fan of lace for all seasons; it's so elegant, so feminine, sexy, and really wearable. I brought in a lot of lace from one of my most coveted—and generally amazing—labels: the LA-based For Love & Lemons. They totally took lace to another level with lots of beautiful color, textured lace, and amazing cuts. Some of our favorite and most popular sellers with customers have been the two-piece lace outfits—a lace maxi skirt paired with a lace crop. For Love & Lemons' lace looks are coming in May. I already have a waiting list for them!"

"An amazing trend I have been seeing is the chunky necklace, be it layered or choker/collar style. A transition from gold to silver has been catching my eye, as well. Chokers are also back, and will be a trend you will see more and more even into fall. This style is so not '90s; I'll argue anyone on that one. Body chains are really sexy and versatile. People think that if you wear a body chain, you are tagged as some sexual being or a hard-rocking biker chick of some sort. Hey, I don't judge, but what I do know is that body chains are far from being anything but amazing on. Pair all of these amazing statement pieces with a plain tee and maxi dress and look incredible."


"Distressed denim has totally matured from the 'Abercrombie' look to a more mature, more perfected classic. The destroyed boyfriend jean by One Tespoon is amazing, affordable, and looks blog-worthy with any top and shoe. The new skinny jean, in my opinion. Just sayin'."
