Start planning for the new spring wardrobe as soon as the temperature shows the tiniest signs of warming up. This spring, it’s all about colors and patterned pieces mixed with classics like white denim and button down shirts. And the accessories? Only the cutest circle sunnies and slip-on sneakers inspired by some of the biggest fashion week runways. Here are six of spring trends to incorporate into your wardrobe now, ensuring a seamless transition from winter to spring and beyond!
Typically spring is all about the colors. This year, metallics are on the upswing. If you are not ready to take the plunge on that silver midi skirt or gold blazer, an easy way to include this trend into your existing wardrobe is with your accessories. Think shoes and handbags. Even a little bit of metallic will go a long way! The glamorous 70’s were alive and kicking on spring’s runways, which were full of slinky floor-length dresses in jewel tones and sparkly metallics. We call them the disco dress.
It’s no shocker that pastels are hot for spring, but light pink hues in particular are popping up everywhere this season. To keep the pink overload from becoming too girly, pair it with some tomboy-inspired pieces like a camo jacket or converse. Baby blue is spreading like wildfire too! But pastels of all shades are welcome as well.
A pop of neon will bring some cheer to even your puffiest parka. Keep the rest of your outfit neutral for best results.
A Versatile Spring Tote
After being lugged through rain, snow and sleet, your existing “everyday” bag likely needs to be put out of its misery. Opt for a versatile, roomy tote bag that will get you from work, through the weekends and even to the beach when that day arrives.
They are back and even bigger than ever. If it’s too chilly to sport a skimpy floral sundress, layer a paper thin turtleneck underneath. Or get your floral on with a springy scarf. With spring collections inevitably comes floral motifs and prints. This season is especially blooming with beautiful blouses, dresses, and skirts in the finest of allover floral prints.
Cropped White Pants
There is no rule that prevents you from wearing white before Memorial Day. Get a cropped pair. We love the slim fitting trousers and culottes. Wide-leg pants are doing very well now. Pair this style with a feminine blouse or sharp blazer to get the season’s posh tailored look. You can try the white suit too. Minimalism had its moment this season, with stark white on the runways of Calvin Klein Collection, Reed Krakoff, and Margiela. While it takes a brave soul to don a white suit anywhere outdoors, the look is masterfully chic.
Finally, try stripes. They transcend all styles, from nautical to athletic, wide to thin, vertical to horizontal, and everything in between. No matter what your personal style, stripes will surely fit into your spring wardrobe effortlessly.
