Spring is on the horizon, so it’s time to pack up your winter wardrobe and start preparing for the latest spring trends hitting the shelves around town. We collected inspiration from fashion bloggers to show how to rock some of this season’s hottest trends. From animal prints, which were spotted on the spring runway from designers like Longchamp and Burberry, to bold plaid ensembles inspired by Carolina Herrera and Natasha Zinko, there’s something for every woman looking to update her spring wardrobe. Take a look!

Dark Florals

While spring usually means the revival of soft pastels and light, airy florals, you won’t be seeing those anywhere this season. Dark florals are where it’s at, and we love the look. We spotted some dark, sophisticated florals on bloggers Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific and Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, which offer a fresh perspective on this “in” spring trend.

Over on the west coast, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere rocks a short dark floral dress with black sandals. Adjust your topper for whatever the temps call for — from light sweater to leather jacket. Image: Emily Schuman

Plaid Blazers & Tweed Jackets

While it’s often reserved for winter — or school uniforms — plaid is making its way into the Spring 2019 fashion scene, including the closets of Christine Andrew of Hello Fashion. This next trend on our list is perfect for those of us whose weather consists of mild temperatures and less than ideal amount of sunshine.

This spring, reach for the plaid! We love how Christine, of the blog Hello Fashion, paired her blazer and matching skirt with a black-and-white long sleeved striped top and comfy white sneakers. Image: Hello Fashion

Sequins are smashing this spring, popping up in every capacity, day or night. We’re particularly fond of this sequin ensemble inspired by Nashville lifestyle blogger Greta Hollar. Options about with sequins, really. Dressy by design, they can be tamed with a layered look (as shown) or some tennies, or glammed up with some statement jewelry. It’s up to you how to wear this spring trend!

We love the playful nature of this look. For any tall girls, Greta is an amazing resource for fashion — check out her eponymous blog, Greta Hollar. Image: Greta Hollar
