Prepare your wardrobes ladies — spring is finally here, and we could not be happier.
But instead of getting stuck in a seasonal dressing rut, you need to spring clean your wardrobe and make room for some new pieces that will allow you to gracefully transition your wardrobe from winter to spring.
From ’70s inspired suede to romantic ruffles, see what items are currently on our radar and what we’re planning on putting on all spring long.
Over the past year, trends both on and off the runway were dominated with warm neutral tones, with camel and grey being the most dominant. To ensure you’re getting the most wear out of your favourite winter neutrals, don’t be afraid to mix them together for an updated spring look.
Now that there’s finally warmer weather heading our way, it’s time to show off a little more skin. So when you’re shopping for spring denim, go for the edgier look and kick your wardrobe up a notch by opting for destroyed jeans, skirts, and jackets.
The lace up trend dominated the runways this year. Luckily this is a trend that is still going strong, and one that transitions perfectly between seasons. From dresses to blouses, there are plenty of styles to get laced up in.
This is a trend we’re extremely happy to see in style again. This season you can go for a more boho vibe or opt for a sleeker look by pairing your suede pieces with classic silhouettes. Incorporate this trend into your repertoire by purchasing a button-down skirt or jacket, or some suede accessories like a purse or belt.
Show Some Shoulder
Off the shoulder blouses are perfect for spring because they’re extremely feminine and can easily be transformed from day to night wear. Pair one with a full skirt or a pair of fitted jeans.
Designers were definitely taking cues from the ’70s this year, as the ruffle trend is another one that will help your inner flower child bloom. This trend is a much-needed update on the ruffles we used to wear when we were kids — only this is a more romantic take on it. When not overdone, ruffles can add a feminine touch to an otherwise simple piece.
A blouse with billowy sleeves instantly adds a laid back, bohemian vibe to your look. Bell sleeve tops pair perfectly with shorts, pencil skirts, or your favourite pair of jeans.
The heeled mule made a comeback last year, but this spring the flat mule is where it’s at. The slip-on style is extremely versatile and can be dressed up with dress pants, or worn casually with a pair of cuffed or cropped jeans — instantly giving you that effortlessly cool model-off-duty vibe.
This is another trend that we’re happy to see in style again, as stripes are a classic wardrobe staple. But this season, try to move away from the simple striped tops and Oxford blouses and make a real statement with a striped jumpsuit or bold purse.
Paper Bag Waist
Easily one of the most flattering shapes; the paper bag style will nip in your waist while creating breathing room from the top and bottom. This trend looks the best when a fitted top is tucked in to balance out the exaggerated detailing.
