This article is for the everyday woman who wants to stay on trend, not for the fashionista who already knows all the trends and will be wearing a clear, plastic trench coat with a fanny pack (oh, they actually have a new name … waist purse) this season. Yes, both may be on trend, but neither is made for the majority of us. Today, we’re talking five spring trends you will actually embrace and want in your closet … those few choice pieces that breathe new air into your wardrobe. Get ready! These are wearable, and you’re going to want them all.
We found inspiration from 10 bloggers who you’re sure to want to follow for your own inspiration (photo at the bottom allows you to do that with ease!).
5 Spring Trends You’ll Love to Wear
Spring and lighter denim, even white denim, is a no-brainer. We agree. But, to be super fashionable this spring, think darker and grab a pair of dark denim to pair with your floral and striped tops.
Lavender (or Red!)
You’ve heard of millennial pink, right? Think Instagram and the affection for pink, and you’ll likely conjure up just what this color is. But, the fresher take this season is lavender. Whether a dress, a blouse or a coverup for the pool, lavender is the color to add this season. But, if lavender is simply not your jam, pastels as a whole are very in … just like they are practically every spring, right?! Oh, and red is hot also. So, if you hate all pastels, go red. Big, bright, tomato red.
Patterns: Checks, Plaid, Polka Dots and Stripes
It’s spring, so of course florals will be on full display, but you’ll find gingham checks, plaid, polka dots and stripes practically everywhere as well. Yes, these are classic looks, so buy the items that fit well and you’ll love for at least the next few years as they’ll work no matter the year. This is just a year where all these prints will be more widely available than others.
From the many shades of tan, khaki, sand and camel to black and pastels, the trench coat is always a classic. This year, it’s a key component to many designers’ collections and an easy thing to embraces in your own wardrobe.
Fringe just won’t go away! And, that’s likely because we all just keep wearing it and loving it. From an accent on a handbag, to a frayed hem on jeans, to a gorgeous dress with long fringe, it continues to be on trend, and you’ll see it everywhere this spring.
While there are countless spring trends for 2018, the five here today can be incorporated into almost any wardrobe, in a large or small way — dark denim; the color lavender (which if you can’t do, go the opposite and grab red); classic patterns like plaid, checks, stripes and polka dots; trench coats; and fringe. Now, hit your local boutiques as they are sure to have all of these picks in a variety of styles waiting for you to try on!
