Are you ready for spring fashion? Spring is the time for change, for rebirth, and for something fresh and new. And a fresh new attitude is the key for this spring’s fashion trends. It’s all about bright pops of color, exciting geometric prints, and a bold, happy style. You can easily incorporate last season’s trendy pieces into this season and still feel updated and in style when you give these new looks a try. With looks as varied as the wearers, there is something for everyone for this lighthearted season. Here’s what looks you need to watch for and how to wear them well.
Monochromatic. Some of the best looks this season are head to toe monochromatic. Look for jewel toned suiting, brightly colored dresses, shimmery fabrics, and all over denim to grace the covers of fashion magazines this spring. The key to wearing this trend is to find bright colors in shimmering fabrics that are the same hue, not tone on tone. Intensity of color makes this bright look work for anyone.
Geometric. Geometric prints are all over the runways and fashion mags. Brightly colored retro checks in boxy jackets or flowy tops will look great against sharp black trousers or relaxed denim. Look for great structural shapes and eye-catching colors to keep this look right in style. Pair up a trendy top with a classic pant to get more wear from your look, or mix and match boxy jackets with long pencil skirts to make them work appropriate.
Giant ruffles. Oversized ruffles are making their way onto all sorts of fashion pieces, from frilly dresses, demure skirts, and even bags and shoes. These architectural ruffles are great accents, but don’t wear them head to toe. Pick one ruffled piece and make it stand out – either a great pair of shoes, a ruffly pair of earrings, or a fab ruffled skirt. Keep everything else sleek and understated to maximize your look.
Black and white. Black and white stripes are the biggest trend this spring. Look for wide stripes, skinny stripes, even swirly twirly striped tops and tunics against crisp black or white trousers. Wide-striped dresses look great on all figures and for a variety of occasions.
Other trends to keep an eye on this year? Look out for the return of navy pants and nautical stripes, for starters. Also, watch for pieces with foreign accents, such as kimono-inspired shapes, flowing saris, and African prints. To make wearing these spring trends successful, choose just one trend at a time. Keep your look crisp, clean, and vibrant. As always, wear it with a confident attitude and a happy smile.
