Spring is finally here and besides the grass turning greener and the days warming up, there is Spring fashion to get excited about. Here are my 3 favorite trends for this Spring. They are easy to incorporate into your existing wardrobe and will give you the fresh feeling of Spring.
One of my favorite trends for this Spring is pastels. Now I know what you’re thinking, aren’t pastels big every Spring? Yes, they are but this Spring they are offered in unconventional ways. Like a pastel pink moto jacket or a light blue structured blazer. Think soft color with a tough edge. So try pairing a mint green blouse with a sleek silver choker or a peach tank top with an army green jacket. Anything that plays against the candy sweet connotation that pastels have will look fresh and new. (image link)
Another trend I am excited about this Spring is the Sheer trend. Sheer has also been around for a couple season. Sheer can get a bad rap because people usually hear sheer and think sexy or revealing. But it can also be used to lighten up an otherwise heavy look. If you want to try this trend but don’t want to go all out with the conventional sheer top with a bandeau, try a long sheer top with a cropped light sweater layered over it. You can also get the look with a semi-sheer top and a nude camisole underneath. An evening look can be subtly sexy with sheer cutouts or a sheer plunging neckline. But I would just encourage you to consider the possibilities of sheer and not just dismiss it in the store. (image link)
It is true, “Everything old is new again.” That is true of 70’s style which seem to come and go every few seasons. This spring 70’s styles are back and will continue into the summer and fall. If you like the carefree looks try pairing a wide leg jean or pants with platform shoes. Wide leg pants tend to make your legs appear shorter so the added heal height, tucking in your shirt, and choosing a slighting higher rise will all help counter act that. On the weekends, a pretty embroidered or lace dress will put you in a 70’s mood. Pair it with booties and a denim jacket now and strappy sandals later. (image link)
