Spring Fashion: Must Have Fashion for Spring

Updated on April 8, 2018

Spring is finally here, which means it is time to pack away your winter coats, scarves, wool hats, and snow boots. It seems that the 70s is making a major comeback this spring. However, you can still find some fashion inspired by the 60s and 80s. The 70s era style has definitely inspired many of the major designers such as Marc Jacob, Pamella Roland, Lubov and Max Azria.


Patterns and Prints

In case you missed it, funky patterns are back! Gingham, polka dots, stripes, animal safari, or digital prints can be seen from the runaway to the local department stores. Floral prints are definitely a standout feature that will turn heads. This season you will find women wearing floral prints on their dresses, shirts, pants, or handbag. Men are also wearing cool funky patterns. You can no longer fin men's blazers in just a solid color, but now these pieces come in different patterns such as a plaid, striped, or checkered designs. Also, I love that this trend has crossed over to home décor as well!

Bold Color Trends

If you think crazy patterns are in style, then wait until you see the bold color statements that are on trend! When I walk into a clothing store I am definitely impressed that there are several colors choices to choose from. Also, the fashion industry is mixing up the color palette in the same piece whether it is in a top, pants, shorts, or skirt. What we have seen in the past is that the fashion world would pick one or two dominant colors, but this season the color options are endless. I love to see a variety of colors options, because now it doesn’t look like I am wearing the same colors all season long! To see this look in action, take a look at Pinterest!


High Necklines and Shoulder Pads

Cleavage is out and high necklines are back in this season. A high neckline can definitely create a more sophisticated look for any women. High neckline tops or dresses can come with very unique accessories or patterns. The neckline can be paired with a bold pair of drop earrings replacing the need for a statement necklace. Also, tops and dresses are coming with a little extra shoulder, which was very popular in the 80s. When I think shoulder pads, I think about Melanie Griffith in the movie Working Girl. Remember, she got the job and the guy in the end!

Crop Tops

Thanks to Kerry Washington, crop tops are here to stay, at least through the summer! During Kerry’s pregnancy, she arrived on the red carpet at the 2014 SAG Awards looking flawless in a custom pink beaded Prada crop top and long black skirt. Since this look has hit the red carpet, women have been popping up everywhere in this similar style. Crop tops are a great piece of clothing that can be paired with a pair of high-waist jeans, a pair of sweatpants, or a short/long flowing skirt. A crop top can be worn in different settings from the gym to date night with your guy to a night out with friends!

Apron and Layered Skirts

Whether you are looking for a long or short skirt option, apron and layered skirts are making an adorable comeback! This look can be found in solid colors, or bold prints and patterns. Some designers are mixing layers with solid colors and patterns to create a very unique look. This will definitely be a style that we will see tin the summer and fall season. This look can definitely be paired with a sexy stiletto, classic pump, or funky espadrilles.


High-Waist Flare Jeans

Want to shake up your jean collection, then high-waist flare jeans are the way to go!. Check out this fresh flare jean look at Anthropologie. This style of jean can be worn with a rocker t-shirt, or if you want to dress it up, wear a blouse with vibrant colors, or a high neckline. Also, add some cool accessories like a fringe bag, a scarf belt, playful bangles, and hoop earrings. Don’t worry if the flare jean is not your thing, then straight-leg and skinny jeans are still available. Also, if you thought ripped jeans were going away--well think again! It seems the fashion industry is taking ripped jeans to another level by shredding them to pieces -- whether it is multiple thin ripped lines or chunky holes in the jeans!


Accessories and more…

Chunky sandals, satchel bags, bangles, stacked rings, and cuff earrings are all on trend. More is better is the motto this season and it is all about the details. Vintage inspired jewelry is no longer just in a museum, but can be found everywhere from flea markets to major high-end clothing stores. Yellow gold and turquoise has made a serious comeback! If someone is looking for more of a bohemian look, then there are plenty of statement accessory pieces inspired by the 60s and 70s decorated with fringes, feathers, natural stones, and beads. Still love a statement necklace--no worries, this accessory is still available with a lot more detail and charm. Statement necklaces can be found in layers and bold colors creating a fun and flirty feel.

No matter what, don’t be afraid to push the envelope by mixing and matching trends to create your own style. At the end of the day, it is all about feeling good on the inside as well as looking good on the outside!
