Spring Trend Forecasting

It’s Spring time!!! Flowers are blooming, the sun is starting to feel warm again and its time to rock some new fashion. Spring opens a whole new book of possibilities when it comes to your wardrobe. You can finally shed the layers of sweaters and slip into something that makes you feel fun and flirty. The following are my favorite spring trends to be rocking. They are fresh ideas that will give you a new way to have fun getting inspired to get dressed everyday! These trends are not about a certain era or type of girl so you can always keep the essence of your personal style with integrating these staple spring trends into your wardrobe. 

Kimonos

Kimonos have actually been around for a couple seasons now but they are really taking off and I am seeing them featured in all different styles by many of my go-to brands. I love kimonos in every shape, style, length and tradition. You can wear it as a beach cover up, throw over a dress or add some boho chic to any outfit that you fancy! Kimonos are a very versatile piece of clothing and it can be an awesome staple to your wardrobe. They can be worn on any occasion be it casual or formal, it is a great alternative instead of always rocking a light jacket. This spring / summer you NEED a go-to kimono in your life!

Birkenstocks

When you hear the word BIRKENSTOCK, a long-haird 70s’ flower child comes to mind. The iconic two-strap sandal has gone from granola to glam. Once considered a fashion faux pas reserved for tree huggers, it has been re-imagined by the hippest of designers. There are new styles that have come out in an array of colors. Many of the fashion industry’s most prominent icons have been seen rocking their Birkenstocks with chunky socks. Many people saw this as a fashion faux pas…it might be the inner hippie in me but I’m actually into it! Besides being “back in” style, Birkenstocks are probably one of the most comfortable sandals out there and they are made of excellent quality, justifying their price tag. Comfort never looked so chic…

Overalls

Overalls are back with a vengeance, particularly denim overalls.  Once a fashion statement from the 60s and 70s, overalls made a prominent comeback in the 90s. As a child, I remember having multiple pairs of overalls that were denim, colorful and even floral! I’m loving the overalls look, I love throwing a crop top underneath, light tee or even a fancy bralette. I’m into the long and short overalls, new and vintage. Overalls can even be worn as a coverup for the beach.  Look on to see how these babes styled their overalls…

Strappy Bralettes

A necessary staple for your spring / summer wardrobe!! With dress and top styles dangerously dipping lower and lower in the back with so many cut outs, a go-to strappy bralette is necessary for any fashionista. A funky bralette would go perfect underneath a pair of overalls for a hot summer day or festival outfit. There are so many bold colors and patterns with intricate details, you can choose to be a stand out or be more subtly sexy in your strappy bralette.

Wide-Leg Pants

Another trend that isn’t super new on the radar, but must be noted. I typically prefer a high waisted wide leg pant but for a more relaxed comfortable look I like them loosely fitted at the waist.  High waisted wide leg pants can be styled with a tucked in fitted top, a leotard or styled with a tee that hits just below the waist-band for a casual but still pulled together look. Different cuts of wide-leg pants can effect the flow of the pants and your silhouette. Not everyone can pull them off but if you can, they are super comfy and can be easily be dressed up or down. I love wearing them for the pure comfort, I prefer boldly printed and floral wide-leg pants. Check out these styles to inspire your inner 70s child.
