Spring fashion is calling your inner hippy. Runway trends displayed collections with patchwork patterns, fringe accents, flared pants, colored suede, and bohemian looks straight from the 70’s. If you’ve always been a hippy at heart, bring your flowy frocks out of storage and wear them in all their glory knowing this season you are right on trend.

For those of you less than enthused with bringing back the groovy 70’s, below are several other spring styles to add to your wardrobe.

Yellow Fever

Nothing says spring like a pop of color. From amber to canary, to muted pastels and marigold, any color of yellow will bring a dose of sunshine to your wardrobe. The trick is finding a color of yellow that looks great on you. If you have a pale skin tone, dark yellow or mustard hues would best suit you. For dark or olive complexions, go for lemon and bright yellows to make your skin glow.   Aren’t sold on this happy hue? Instead of wearing this color as a larger pieces such as a dress or jacket, try it in a fun accessory like a pair of shoes or a clutch bag to bring color to an otherwise ordinary outfit.

All White
Not a fan of color? Then the all white trend is for you.   Try white in a head-to-toe ensemble for a fashion forward look. Clean, all white silhouettes look great whether wearing a flowy bohemian dress or donning a casual look. Try wearing all white with simple metallic jewelry and shoes for an effortless and classic feel.

Bare Shoulders

This fashion trend for spring is all about highlighting the shoulders with interesting necklines. Many of this season’s designers showed off-the-shoulder and bold one-shoulder designs to create interest in the neckline. It’s a great way to show off your sun kissed skin without flaunting too much. Try this trend through a new top paired casually with a pair of shorts or dressed up with a skirt for a fun night out.

Flats

You can finally give your feet a rest, comfortable shoes are in. Ditch last seasons Birkenstocks and instead opt for cute sandals, sneakers and flats perfect for life in the Florida Keys. Create an interesting combination by pairing a fun colored sneaker with a dress or skirt. Your feet will rejoice when you give your wedges and heels a break for the night out. Plus imagine how much longer you can dance when wearing comfortable shoes!

Shirt Dresses

Shirt dresses are a classic wardrobe staple. If this seasons trend isn’t already a part of your wardrobe, this is the perfect opportunity to invest in a cute style. Effortlessly chic, shirt dresses are perfect for day or night and double as a fabulous swimsuit cover up. Look for shirt dresses reimagined with high slits or a fun pattern.

Gingham Style

Move over plaid, this season is all about gingham. This sixties-inspired print no longer carries the sweet and innocent vibe from Dorothy’s blue and white gingham dress on The Wizard of Oz. Instead, this retro design is showing up in a variety of color combinations and print sizes for a fresh look. Classic black and white gingham looks great blown up in size and also on sheer fabrics. No longer just a picnic table print, this pattern is making a major come back. Look for enlarged patterned gingham dresses and skirts in a fun color for a ladylike twist on this retro print.
