NEW YORK — Spring trends will cross many themes, from utility-inspired looks to cleaned up, feminine ensembles.

Angela Ahrendts, Liz Claiborne’s executive vice president, said sportswear is much more simplified and streamlined for spring. "It’s more classic, more refined, there’s a lot of men’s wear influences, kind of like boyfriend classics," she said. "The whole bohemian thing is over and it’s about cleaned-up classics."

Here’s what moderate and better sportswear makers said will be the hottest items next season:

Cargo pants.

Zippered pocket details.

Fashion denim with new embroidery treatments and washes.

Woven shirts.

Skirts, especially skirts with novelty hemlines.

Cotton jackets and jacket alternatives.

Twinsets and fine gauge, seasonless sweaters.
