From dresses with feminine floral prints to tops with bold, zig-zag stripes, there's definitely an ecletic mix of looks for women of all ages this spring season.

Fourteen local boutiques and salons have styled models for Bakersfield Life with their favorite fashion and beauty trends. Among some of these looks include: sleek ruffles on a vintage polka dot dress, sheer blouses with cutouts, back-to-basics in classic black and white, fun eyeliners in green and blue hues, bright fuschia-colored lips and lots of layered accessories.
