While I love the layers and materials of fall fashion, there’s nothing like fresh spring trends. Etherial fabrics; soft colors; breezy shapes; it’s a transition that’s a welcomed one, all over the country. (Even in sunny Southern California, am I right?) Daily light lingers longer and temperatures are inching higher, which means it’s time for all the skirts, all the shorts, all the sandals, and all the dresses—finally.
So what’s on the trends list for this season? Here are some of my favorites:
Mixed prints. Polka dots with stripes? Florals with polka dots? Stripes with geographic patterns? Yes to all. What helps when mixing patterns is to find a similar color in both and repeat it.
Tule. A glamorous fabric that can be dressed up or down. Adore tule skirts with heels or with sneakers.
Utilitarian. Multi zippers and multi pockets on skirts and jackets can add a masculine touch to a season full of femininity.
Statement earrings. These beauties are whimsical and elegant, made with jewels and gems. And? Can be worn with a sleek black dress or sweater and jeans.
Graphic bags. If you’re not into bold colors or statement earrings, how about an eye-catching bag?
Sequins. Am I dreaming? Sequins for spring and summer? Yes, please! If this seems too fancy, try wearing a sweatshirt with some shine for a casual way to rock this trend.
Ruffles. On sleeves. On dresses. On sweatshirts. Put them on anything for a bit of romantic whimsy.
