Spring Preview: Vans Girls’

Slim silhouettes are the style prescription this spring from Cypress, Calif.-based Vans, a division of VF Corp. Low-profile girls’ sneaker looks appear both in both low and midcuts (and, in a surprising departure, hard soles), but the brand’s laid-back surf DNA remains the inspiration, with the color palette including cool neutrals, whimsical prints and bold stripes. Styles range from $45 to $60 and retail at mall-based stores, boutique accounts and at Vans.com
