Spring Style Trends
As we have officially passed Daylight Saving Time, spring has arrived. Here is our comprehensive guide to spring style and knowing what trends will be hot this year.
Keep in mind, these are runway looks designed to be more dramatic than ready-to-wear clothing you'd find at the store. But! Runway style is always great inspiration and often serves as the basis for what we find on the racks.
No surprise, these Easter egg hues are a big hit every year. Fashion runways were packed with pastel colors, but the winner seems to be lavender. We saw it in dresses, pants, tops, jackets, shoes—you name it, someone showed it in lavender.
This trend popped up a few years ago and has been gaining momentum ever since. It can be worn dressed up (think Chanel suits) or down with a boho chic vibe. If you want to try this trend at home, you can DIY some fringed denim by cutting off the hem of your jeans. Wash 2x and you will have your own fringe denim!
Before we were seeing a skirt in one pattern and a top in something different, but now multiple pattern designs have been applied to a single item. It can get a bit busy at times, so if you want to try this at home, opt for stripes (considered a neutral) with floral. It’s an easy and simple way to be on-trend without feeling too fashion forward.
This trend is similar to the shirt dress, but is, in fact, a light trench coat worn as a dress. If that seems to far of a stretch, look for shirt dresses in thicker khaki shades. Dillards and Von Maur have a great selection of spring dresses, so I would start there.
Shimmer and Sequins
Expect to see embellishments on everything from shoes, to trousers, to blazers. This trend is all about shining, so embrace the details in these pieces! The easiest way to wear this trend is to choose one item from your look with shimmer and keep everything else toned down and neutral. I suggest a shimmery tank under a blazer or a pop of sequins on your shoes.
I’ve been hesitant to jump on board with this trend because fanny packs are NOT fashion forward. Luckily, these belt bags have come a long way in design and are perfect for the woman that needs hands-free convenience. They come in every shade imaginable and places like H&M, Zara, and Asos carry them—so you can find them at every price point.
Whether you implement all of these trends into your wardrobe, or just one, you can do it with the confidence that you look fabulous and stylish!
