I love Spring. My birthday usually falls the day after the FIRST day of Spring and it always makes me so happy! New season, another year of life and so much potential and opportunity. We don’t get a lot of Spring weather here in Texas, we kind of shift from chilly to feeling like we’re in a sauna all day, every day. But getting to wear Spring/Summer clothes is what I am looking forward to the most.
When I was at NYFW for SS18, I noticed a few consistent themes throughout the shows: bold colors, soft pantone colors, texture (ruffles, fringe, sequins, buckles, etc.), stripes, sheer materials, pattern play and so much more!
I took a cue from SS18 and put together this fun spring trend inspired look while in NYC for Fashion Week and loved the way it turned out. Sheer + Tulle, you just can’t go wrong with that! While this look may be a little over the top for every day street style, I did want to show you how to incorporate it into your life, even when not attending fashion week.
So today on the blog, I rounded up my top 5 Spring trends that I am most excited to see (in just a few short weeks!)
1. Here for the Sheer
Sheer tops, sheer dresses, sheer skirts, you name it, I want it. I did a trial run at NYFW and loved every minute of it. What I love about wearing something sheer is that it is bold but feminine. You can dress it up or dress it down. I rounded up a few sheer tops that are a must have to jump start your spring wardrobe.
2. Stripe, Stripe Baby
Stripes are here to stay. You may have noticed an uptick in polka dots for winter, well not to be upstaged, the stripes have come out to play for spring and are doing so in the most stylish way possible. I personally love vertical stripes, but when worn the right way, horizontal stripes give me life too!
3. Daring, Darling Denim
These aren’t your basic distressed mom jeans that you found on the sale rack at Abercrombie (they are making a comeback and I’m kind of here for it). I’m talking about denim that has embellishments and stitching, designers were getting out their “bejewelling” guns and having a field day this spring. I’ve always been a fan of denim and I love when I can add unique pieces to my closet. Check out a few that I found so far:
4. Just Give Me The BRIGHT
Color on Color on Color in the most bold and elaborate way possible, that’s what I remember most from the runways in September. And I mean BRIGHT color! Try a monochromatic style or block out your colors with your favorites from the color wheel, whatever your preference, COLOR is what’s on the menu for spring. I love wearing bright colors because it says “I’m here! I’m fabulous! And I don’t care what you think about me!” Maybe that should be my new tag line. Ha!
5. Talk Tulle To Me
Tulle elevated. If you’re a grown woman like me and wondering how in the world you can wear tulle and not look like a five year old, don’t worry, I’ll show you. Tulle doesn’t have to be a big poofy skirt, I’ve learned after a few study sessions in my fashion textbooks … you know Vogue, WWD, InStyle .. the essentials, how to rock this trend in the most stylish way possible. I may even do a separate blog post on this but for now, here are my favorites:
Tell me, what are you most excited to wear this spring? I’ll be rocking all the trends I listed above and many more. Thanks so much for reading. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on the latest. Have a great week!
