20 Spring Fashion Staples
Spring is finally here and although it doesn't feel like it is coming anytime soon, warmer weather is right around the corner. I have been keeping a eye out for what type of looks will be hitting the stores and streets this spring, and below you will find a glimpse of the most important spring fashion choices this year:
1. Baggy Denim and Wide Culottes

7. Apron Skirts
8. Statement Stripes and Different Color Contours
9. Sporty Tops and Polos
10. Off-Shoulder and One-Shoulder Tops
11. Kimono and Poncho Trench-Coats and Trench-Dresses
12. Safari Pieces
13. High Collared Shirts
14. Obi Belts
15. Floral Prints

18. Fit and Flare Dresses
19. Sheer and Chiffon Pieces, Lace
Some may have made previous appearances either last year or 40 years ago, but you know what they say, everything comes back in style! I am overjoyed that midi-skirts do not seem to be going anywhere because I love the way they flatter. Blazers have also been chic for a few years now, and make such a statement with a pair of jeans. I am a fan of animal prints (mostly leopard), and I am interested in seeing what type of bold and daring animal and safari pieces they come out with! I definitely want to incorporate a few military pieces into my wardrobe to add something different--I can't wait to try on a military style dress. I have seen a few on the runway and I fell in love. One choice I will probably stray away from is the wide culottes--I have never understood the flattery of them and I just hate the way I look in them!
Perhaps my favorite pieces that I am seeing are gingham style prints (maybe some cute jackets and even a skirt) and apron skirts. Since they are so versatile, they can be worn over both pencil skirts and tights to add a little flare to an otherwise bland outfit. I also love obi belts and midi skirts/a-line dresses since they seem to flatter every body type and add so much style to a simple top.
Spring fashion this year will be bold and unique. If you're not ready to jump into 70s outfits and scorpion tops, start small; incorporate lace and statement striped pieces into your everyday wear. Add a blazer to your outfit for office or street style. One shoulder strapped shirts make a small but bold statement. Buy a suede piece--a pair of pants, a skirt, even a jacket in a bright spring hue and own it. Are you ready to rock these styles?
