Spring has officially begun and with it has come many seasonal trends that are feminine and fun. Not only are we looking at the annual flare of floral print, dainty details and vibrant colors. This season is also bringing fun twists on styles like feminine pieces and even modern flare on classics like the button down. Today we are sharing with you 10 chic Spring fashion trends you need to try.
10 Chic Spring Fashion Trends You Need To Try
1. Statement Stripes
This Spring, skip the polka dots and reach for stripes instead. In every color, shape, size and form. From thick horizontal and vertical stripes to skinny ones appearing in asymmetrical patterns. Even what is being named banker stripes are having a moment. These are the thiner, more structured looking stripes that have been named after the fashion of Wall Street. And we are seeing them on everything from dresses, blouses and trousers.
2. Edgy Romance
We love this trend. Designers and fashionistas are pioneering the season with a new and fresh take on romantic patterns and separates by pairing them with unexpected pieces, giving them an edgy appeal. Think wearing a floral dress with a leather baseball cap, or a dress decorated in a pattern of hearts but styled with high top sneakers. There have also been designers that have released limited edition apparel lines that already fusing the two style concepts together-creating fashion lines for this Spring that mix effortlessly structured and powerful silhouettes with soft and feminine prints. It’s romance with a bite.
3. Every Shade of Yellow
If you are wondering what color to wear this season, look no further than yellow. Every shade and hue. From bright and bold like neon and canary to soft and feminine like pastel. We are seeing yellow paired with just as bold colors like cobalt blue and bright shades of pink like magenta and hot pink. Shades of yellow are popping up on accessories, shoes and dresses.
4. Oversized Earrings
Large and in charge earrings are no longer on reserve for grandmothers or clip ons. This season we are seeing earrings that pack a major statement and steal the show. Everything from tassels and intricate beading to every shade of metallic and even unique handmade jewelry. We think they look great paired with a chignon or sleek straightened hair, to really show off the statement earring and let it be the center of attention in your ensemble.
5. Sheer Dresses
This is a whimsical trend that has been gracing quite a handful of models and celebrities this season. From super model Bella Hadid to fashion blogger icon Chiara Ferragni, most are reaching for the newest Dior line that embraces this fresh Spring trend. If going bare with a sheer look is too bold and isn’t your style-try out these fashion tips on what to wear under sheer clothing.
6. Flatforms Espadrilles
We can always get on board with a trend that is equally chic as it is comfortable. We are happy to see the flatform shoe continue to have a strong presence now for Spring. Espadrilles have always had their moment during this season, but this take on the classic shoe gives us something a bit more fun and edgy to style. See how Fashion Blogger icon Song of Style wears her platform espadrilles here.
7. Mix and Match Patterns
Many designers this season are supporting the fun concept of mixing and matching. This eclecticism is offering an effortless way to embrace your favorite wardrobe pieces and show off your personality in a bold notion. A good rule of thumb is sticking to one color palette to tie in your mixed and matched pieces and going for the gold with accessorizing. Top off your mix and match look with bold accessories.
8. Silk Scarves
There are just some accessories that never go out of style and continue to be the star of the show, season after season. That is the case for the silk scarf. This Spring in particular, we are seeing printed silk scarves tied into tight knots and bows around the neck or layered loosely around shoulders.
9. Mega Brights
Many usually gravitate towards pastels, white and cream during the Spring season-and reserve the bright and bold colors for Summer. We are here to tell you, don’t wait. Major bright shades like hot pink were a huge hit on the runway with the likes of Balenciaga, Céline and Valentino. And when it comes to styling bright colors this Spring, skip the details and go for unobstructed pieces. Think shift dresses, pleated midi skirts and silk tank tops. Other mega brights leading the season are Kermit green and sunflower yellow.
10. New and Improved Button Down
We love seeing a classic wardrobe staple reinvented for a season like Spring. However, history has shown us that the classic button down shirt is a continuous focal point with designers every season. This is because it is considered the most essential workwear staple in office fashion. So what is the button down looking like in 2017? We are seeing styles like graphic printed button down blouses, button down shirt dresses and button down shirts worn off-shoulder-flash dance style.
