It might be hard to imagine that spring fashion is coming if you’re living in snowbanks and flurries back east; but here? Spring fashion has settled in like it always does. Early. Already, I’ve worn my flowy dresses; tees without a jacket; and sandals. Hello, pedicures and sunscreen. You’re needed. Now.
With every new season, I love purchasing some transitional pieces to work into my wardrobe. And with spring sales starting early (see last post), I’ve taken advantage of collecting some new trends, old trends, and spring-time pieces for the coming season.
This spring, it’s all about easy pieces that transition from work to cocktails in a snap. The first trend up? The shirtdress. Love. Take a classic piece and add a twist, like a drop-waist or a high slit and you’ve got modern springtime. It’s definitely one of the easiest ways of looking put together during work and after–add a belt, statement earrings, and a clutch, and you’re ready for a night out on the town.
Second up, is yellow. Yes, 2015’s color of the season. According to Glamour, “Before you scoff and say ‘not for me,’ hear us out. From amber and canary to saffron and marigold, trust that there is a shade of yellow for everyone. The trick is figuring out your skin’s undertone, then finding the hue that best complements it.” Other combinations to rock this season include black and white, head-to-toe white, and black and blue.
My next favorite trend this spring is shoe wear–flats, slides, and sneakers, oh my! I recently purchased a pair of crisscross sandals from J.Crew in metallic silver, an easy, slip-on sandal that’s both chic and comfortable. (And right now, they’re 25% off.) Or, rock a slip on sneaker with your boyfriend jeans, flirty skirts, and rompers for a stylishly sporty outfit.
Certain trends–like culottes, the fancy apron (“a new layering trick for the more daring fashion gal”), and the one-shoulder cuts might be a bit too much for me, but I did pick up a new pair of boyfriend jeans (J.Crew’s slim broken-in boyfriend jean; super comfy with just the right amount of shape), which falls under “roomy denim,” another one of Glamour’s top trends for spring.
What about you? How will your spring wardrobe shape up?
