Fashion trends constantly change based on what is on the runway, who is wearing what, and even turning to previous decades for inspiration. Rather than looking to runway models, this spring we turn to more relatable figures for wardrobe inspiration. While spring florals and pops of color might not be “groundbreaking,” you can elevate the classic looks in a variety of ways. These four fashion bloggers offer a toned-down version of 2021’s high fashion trends.

Favorite Spring Trend: Sorbet pastel colors and floral prints
Think of two things that are just so Spring — pastels and florals — and you’ll quickly get an understanding for the fashion trend that has Heather most excited. “When it’s time for a date night or girls’ day out, I love dressing up as much as the next Southern girl,” she says. “I am in love with bringing sorbet pastel colors and floral prints into my wardrobe for spring.”

Favorite Spring Trend: Bright green
Spring is an opportunity to breathe new life into your wardrobe, and one easy and exciting way to do that is through color. One color, in particular, that has Cathy Williamson excited is G-R-E-E-N! “Bright green after a cold, drab winter will be one of the colors I will be wearing on repeat,” she says. We whole-heartedly concur!
Blogger: Kay Elle of iamkayelle.com

Her blog is centered around travel, events, food and fashion, and her focus is on connecting people to like-minded individuals, brands she loves and experiences she has enjoyed. Kay believes everyone should live a “FAB” lifestyle — which is a life filled with adventure, confidence and style.
Favorite Spring Trends: Feathers, wide-leg pants, and bubblegum pink
For the feather trend, Kay suggests going bold with a bandeau top decked out in feathers. Or for a more subtle look, a feather-trimmed dress or blouse is perfectly on trend. In terms of wide-leg pants, she predicts we will see them in both muted and bright tones as well as fun prints and patterns. Finally, in regards to the bold and bubbly bubblegum pink trend, Kay says, “It is a color we will see a lot during Spring and Summer 2021. When wearing this color trend, do not be afraid to wear it by itself or rock it with a contrasting color to really stand out.”
Blogger: Laura Rieckhoff of walkinginmemphisinhighheels.com
ABOUT THE BLOGGER: Laura Rieckhoff is the woman behind Walking in Memphis in High Heels, a blog named after her love of Memphis and fashion.

Favorite Spring Trend: Bright colors and floral prints
Another fan of bright, spring colors and feminine floral prints, Laura looks forward to donning the two — ideally together — when the weather warms. “I love color and never shy away from it, so you can imagine my excitement when I found out that some of the top colors this spring will be pink, lime green, yellow, and tangerine,” she says. “Those colors mixed with a favorite of mine — florals! — make for the perfect lightweight, billowy top for spring. Paired with white denim and some strappy sandals, you’ve got the perfect spring look that will lead you right into warmer weather.”
A special thanks to Cathy, Heather, Kay and Laura for sharing their favorite spring trends!
