The coldest days of winter are now behind us as certain trees are starting to bloom! You may have even noticed you no longer need to wear a cumbersome jacket like you did a few months ago. With the feeling of spring making it’s way through your home, you’ve surely started spring cleaning; But what about one of the many other springtime activities you’d much rather be relishing in – spring shopping? If you’re new to filling your wardrobe with clothes that radiate a springtime feeling, it can be rather daunting. Luckily, we’re here to put a spring in your step, literally!
Many spring trends are styles brought back from the 90s and 2000s – in the form of ultra-low-rise pants, micro-minis, and halter necks – while others bring a flair of modernity to your style. To help you with your spring wardrobe this year, here are 11 trends that you will want to add to your closet.
11 Fashion Trends to Embrace This Springtime
- Patterned Sets
- Grass Green
- Skirt Suits
- Oversized Bags
- Oversized Sunglasses
- Trench Coats
- Catsuits or Jumpsuits
- Fanny Packs
Platform shoes are timeless, and the extra height is perfect to make you feel taller on certain days when you need a little pick-me-up. You can choose platforms in any style of shoe you like nowadays. Be it clogs, sneakers, or boots, most designers and retailers have their versions of fashionable stilts to offer you. The best thing about spring clothing is its versatility, and platforms are the perfect example as they can be paired with almost any outfit.
2. Patterned Sets
If you live life on the go, patterned sets are ideal for you. They’re simple, quick, and humbly stylish, and you can get one for almost every occasion. If you work from home, ditch your regular sweatpants for a patterned set for a more elevated look, paired with a two-piece pant or skirt set. Don’t forget, patterned PJs also fall into this category if you want to combine style with comfort in the evenings.
Feathered clothing items have been making a comeback for a few years; they add a non-traditional flair to any clothing item. You don’t have to go full-on feathers, but a feathered detail or trim elevates any plain outfit into something more exciting.
4. Grass Green
While the colour green may not be your favourite, it is a shared favourite among spring fashion lovers. Grass green has been quite the trend for many years gine by, seen on high-fashion runways and e-commerce retailers. The shade can breathe life back into your older spring outfits when paired with a crisp blazer, a bucket hat, or a pair of slingback sandals.
5. Skirt Suits
These smart outfits have also been seen on the runway and among our favourite celebrities. What’s even better is that you don’t have to splurge to buy a new one. Simply drag up mom’s old corporate uniform from the 80s and take it to get tailored to give it a more modern twist. If you are buying, though, try to modernise things by playing with textures and patterns.
6. Oversized Bags
Micro-purses are a thing of the past. An oversized bag that will fit way more than just your phone is in. This spring accessory trend is almost like a counterculture movement to the tiny bags that dominated the fashion scene throughout 2019. If you’re not so keen on giant leather hobo bags, you can always grab a large canvas bag instead.
Long or maxi-skirts are the perfect transitional item for spring! They’re long enough to keep your legs warm without losing comfort in tight trousers. Maxi-skirts are likely already a staple in your wardrobe, but with the arrival of spring, it’s time to have more fun with these oversized fashion pieces. Try getting yourself an asymmetrical, metallic, or pleated large skirt, or all of the above.
8. Oversized Sunglasses
Oversized sunglasses have firmly cemented themselves as a huge trend in recent spring seasons. This is another nostalgic trend making a comeback from the 70s cool-girl look famously seen on runways. From aviators to retro sporty shades, there are so many stylish frames to choose from. Sunglasses like these are perfect for going in incognito mode when the time calls for it.
9. Trench Coats
A trench coat is another closet staple to make a comeback this spring. Many celebrities can give you inspiration for your spring outfits, so be sure to do some research! Pleather, leather, or any other fabric trench coat is a perfect match for anything. Even some sweats make any comfortable outfit a bit more chic.
10. Catsuits or Jumpsuits
Think onesies, but make it stylish. There’s nothing easier than quickly putting on a one-piece garment in the morning and not having to think about what goes with your outfit. While dresses and rompers may seem like the easiest go-to, the luxurious rise of a catsuit is like the couture version of an overall. And for a night on the town, a skin-tight catsuit is all you need.
11. Fanny Packs
Fanny packs have been on the rise for a number of years now. Their convenience means they’re not too much of a commitment, but still perfect for holding all your essentials, so your arms can feel open and free. Find a colour and style that perfectly reflects your personality and enjoy the ease of carrying your necessities around and looking like a rockstar in the process.
