My favorite style bloggers have all been talking spring fashion trends for weeks. Now that spring is here to stay, I can Pinterest my heart out choosing my favorites – and a few I don’t understand. I may have a few online shopping carts of spring and summer tops hanging around.
I’m happy to say all the navies, mints and corals you have from last spring can be worn again. The palette is a bit different, but close enough in my book. Three colors stand out the most to me: custard, tangerine and glacier gray.
• Yellow gets a bad rap. I firmly believe everyone can wear some shade of yellow. Try a pale canary yellow with lots of white undertones. Or one with tan undertones like a wheat yellow. Or a bold sunshine yellow with some red hues in it. This pretty pale custard yellow and tangerine orange offer a lot of possibilities to explore.
• And the gray. It is my perfect neutral.
• Also, lots of white. I love it. I need a pair of white jeans in my life; how this hasn’t happened yet I’m not sure.
Name your favorite pattern, ready set go. Lots to choose from!
• Pinterest and Google also tell me checkered patterns of gingham and plaid are in the mix. I guess it’s an easy transition from the buffalo plaid of this winter.
• Fringe is still big from last summer and fall. In fact, I think summer fringe is like spring florals. Staples. The boho vibe lives on. What I haven’t noticed as much is lace. It’s around and I’ll wear all the lace because I love it, but it doesn’t seem as prominent this year.
• I also feel like I see a lot of tribal prints. Seems like less animal print, more tribal print. It’s a little geometric, a little boho, various loose cultural inspirations, lots of color. I like it.
When looking to ad a few key seasonal pieces, start with these.
• Overalls are still around. I don’t get it.
• Shirt dresses are a big thing this year. These can be formal office look or casual beachy boho. I love the look, but button downs and I struggle to be friends. I want to see how I feel about dresses.
• Speaking of boho style, the kimono makes a strong comeback this spring.
• Denim. Lots of faded and distressed denim. I haven’t really gotten into the hole-y jeans look. I like a simple knee tear and I don’t mind some edge fray or the sandpapered worn look, but some distressed looks I see are barely jeans anymore.
Also, flairs. I don’t think this is for me. I’m still too jaded from the flared jeans of my youth. And this cropped flair trend? Hm, no. Same goes for the culotte comeback.
Thanks for reading!
