Springing into Fashion
As part of "Spring Break week" here on the blog, I of course have to talk about Spring fashion. Now let me be honest: if I didn't like what was considered "on trend" for Spring fashion I wouldn't be writing this post. I am a big fan of knowing what you like when it comes to dressing yourself and only picking what you like from the fashion mags Top Ten and Must Haves. Fortunately Spring fashion reports sound like they were written by me: stripes and lace and florals and everything girly and good! I scoured the web to bring you some of my favorite Spring clothing inspiration and finds based on what's going to be in for this blooming new season.
What could be more girly and more Spring-y than pastels? I'm excited about this trend because I like a nice, soft color to compliment the warmer temperatures and bright skies. Having said that, I'm going to be cautious about this trend because it's so easy to get caught with a wardrobe of pretty pastels. As perfect as this sounds, I feel like too many pastels makes you look like a little girl and I imagine a bedroom decorated with unicorns and rainbows. A perfect and simple touch is nail polish or a sweet accessory like the lilac Cambridge Satchel Company tote. Pastels also enhance a tan so come on, gray skies, I'm ready for the sunshine!
Finally, the trend that I'm most psyched for this Spring: stripes! If you're a regular reader of this blog or just happen to catch my "I'm Wearing" posts then you've seen me in a stripe a time or two (or twenty). So when I started to see magazine articles and fashion bloggers touting stripes, I said, "Yes, please!" Obviously the key to bringing stripes into your Spring wardrobe is to not go overboard. One pieces is often enough, otherwise you might have a Where's Waldo situation on hand. I adore the orange and white striped dress from Forever 21 (shopping trip here I come) and those bangles or a multi-colored scarf would be an inconspicuous but fun addition. It's my personal opinion that you can't go wrong with stripes.
Now you've seen what trends I'm loving for Spring. What are you craving for your closet for Spring?
