Spring is upon us which means it’s time to give your wardrobe a refresh. If you’re done traveling to cooler weather destinations, move your warmer apparel to the back of the closet and rotate your spring and summer clothing to the front. Before packing away sweaters and coats, wash or dry clean items so they are ready for next season.
When trying a new trend, make sure they’ll blend easily into your current wardrobe. Before buying a new item, envision three outfits the new piece can be worn with. If you can only think of one, then let it go as you’ll get minimal wear out of it and it will spend more time hanging in your closet than being worn.
Below are a few of the hottest trends for spring to get your wardrobe ready for the season.
All Things Pink
At the top of my list for spring must-haves is hot pink. Girly girls will rejoice this season as the color is making a major statement from bright fuschia to dusty rose, pretty in pink is the unofficial color of the season. Break out all your prettiest pinks this spring for casual outings to the beach and more formal evening occasions.
The cold shoulder was big in 2016, but this season, statement sleeves ranged from eighties inspired puffball sleeves, single shoulder cutouts, flouncy ruffles, bell sleeves, and voluminous rounded shoulders. This spring it’s all about proportion with lots of attention on your arms. Look for blouses, shirt dresses and knitwear with lots of sleeve style.
Nautical stripes are a spring staple typically found in bright whites and classic navy. This season stripes are bright and bold in criss-cross patterns, vibrant geometric prints, and rainbow-bright hues. Stripes are no longer your classic basic, they’ve received a jolt of energy in graphic primary colors that stand all on their own. Pair these bold prints with minimal accessories to let the pattern take center stage.
Sequins and metallics are usually reserved for holidays and New Year’s Eve parties but this spring, designers are loving head-to-toe gold and silver. For a modern feel, pair a metallic skirt with a graphic stripe or bright floral pattern along with chic sneakers for a more casual look.
Florals are a classic must-have for spring, but this season gives blossom prints a seventies spin with bright contrast hues such as pink, orange and green in feminine silhouettes. If you’re wearing head-to-toe floral with a bright dress, opt for classic accessories such as a metallic or neutral sandal or wedge.
Atheisure got a sexy upgrade this season with body hugging knits that outline every curve. Leggings are another classic sportswear that’s been reinvented this season. This ready-to-wear basic was found on the runway in velvet, lace and spandex for a high fashion feel. And don’t forget about the hoodie. You’ll find hoodies on jackets, vests and shirts for a laid-back feel.
Over-the-top ear candy is everywhere this spring. These statement-makers are the accessory of the season. Go big or go home this spring when it comes to your ears. Pair these decadent, brightly colored earrings with a simple romper and sandals for a chic look.
