As the seasons change so does fashion. Trends come and go as quickly as it takes the shrubs and trees to bloom flowers and fruits. Spring is the lovely time of the year where we exchange our winter coats and thermals for more temperature appropriate attire. Quite frankly, it’s about time. Luckily, this year, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow which means Spring is on time and so are the trends that come with it. These are the 12 fashion trends you definitely need to try this spring.
A pop of color is always a good thing. When an outfit is more neutral, but you want to make it more appropriate for spring, accessorize with bright shoes or a bright handbag. Don’t be afraid to mix and match by pairing a bright color with a neutral outfit. It’s perfect for a fast way to accessorize without much thought.
Tassels are no longer for your pillows or purses. They are making quite the statement as accessories this season. You can wear tassels in any capacity, whether it’s on your skirt, your shirt, big tassels or small, they’re sure to spruce up any outfit. My favorite way to incorporate tassels in my outfits are as earrings and on my shoes.
In the mood for something sultry? A slip dress is the perfect choice for someone who wants a change to the bodycon dress. Slip dresses can complement any body type as they aren’t form fitting yet there’s still a sense of sexiness to it. For a more daytime appropriate way to wear this trend, wear one in a color perfect for Spring such as a pastel or light neutral.
Spring can still be a bit chilly, but let’s be real, lightweight outerwear is more for the looks than for the temperature regulation. If your outfit is looking a bit plain Jane for your taste, adding a lightweight layer can step it up a notch. My favorites are long short sleeve or sleeveless cover ups such as a blazer or duster.
Chunky heels are a lot sturdier than our usual stilettos. They are a girl’s best friend when it comes to navigating through grass, pebbles, basically anything that isn’t solid and easy to walk on. Spring is all about enjoying the warmer weather, so navigating the outdoors in studier shoes is a must!
Distressed denim is always in, but this season ripped knees specifically are making their way on the scene. Whether it’s in a light wash or dark, you can dress this trend up or down. You can make it grungy, you can make it preppy, you can make it bohemian. It can literally go with any style known to man.
High Neck Pieces
We can all thank Kylie Jenner for this one. Although some people may be a little shy to this trend, it’s one to try out. A high neck piece can add a touch of class to an outfit. Using this conservative look in an edgy way, such as in a bodysuit or off the shoulder top, makes it more youthful and less like you’re wearing grandma’s turtleneck.
Fringe has been on trend since Fall and it certainly is not going anywhere any time soon. It can be overbearing if worn in a ridiculous way (such as one too many fringe pieces in an outfit – trust me, one piece is enough!), but if done right, fringe can give an outfit some pizzazz.
Since we are taking it back to the 70’s with the fringe, we might as well bring back bell sleeves, right? Bell sleeves are nothing to be intimidated by. They can make arms look thinner and add a piece of mod to your outfit.
The less you have to lug around, the better. Bucket bags make it easier not to overpack our purses with junk we simply don’t need to be carrying around. They’re a nice change to the typical crossbody bag, offering a bit more storage, but still light enough to wear.
It’s safe to say I never thought this trend would be back, but luckily for us, choker necklaces are much higher quality than they were in the 90’s. Choker necklaces can accessorize a slip dress or off the shoulder shirt nicely, giving the comfort of a more clothed look while not having to cover up.
Bold sunglasses are becoming a way to accessorize an outfit. Odd shapes and frames are now being designed by the likes of Dior and more. You can change the vibe of an outfit with sunglasses by playing up the style for a high fashion look or you can make it more classic yet chic by sticking to simple frames and mirrored lenses.
