SPRING TRENDS

Hello Everyone! so i had planned to post this 2 days ago but I've been very busy so i was unable to,  i do apologize.  I've been thinking for sometime about putting together a detailed mood board of spring trends to keep you all informed on some of the trends you might not have picked up on, or simply to assist you shop and organize your spring wardrobe keeping it fresh and up-to-date. My  favorite thing about this spring's fashion  is that there's such a variety of trends for everyone from your Sporty fashonista to the quirky girl, the chic and timeless beauty, the fashion rock star as well as the ladies that just like to mix things up, experiment and have fun with trends.  So here is a mood-board of key spring trends  I painstakingly put together to help you decide your favorite trends and organize your wardrobes.

                                                              ODE TO THE 1990'S
The Burst of Bright colors and Neon especially, is an ode to early 1990's fashion but with a completely different take, as well as cuts and structures. The use of colors especially orange and yellow is being done in a more sophisticated and chic fashion with straight cut dresses, pencil skirts and court-like sandals surfacing in bright oranges, yellow, green, neon,  as well as a mix of different colors.






Another spring trend that is also reminiscent of 90's fashion are overalls or dungarees . Overalls have to be my favorite spring trend because its reminiscent of my childhood and just like now was one of my favorite trends back when. With everyone from Chloe to river island debuting overalls in a selection of fabrics, styles, cuts, colors and lengths, its a very fun fashion forward addition to a girl's spring wardrobe.


      Necessity; The mother of style
Trench coats have been a fixture this spring and while trenchs are undeniably chic, the dominance of trench coats this spring owes largely to the indecisive nature of the weather. Trench coats are a great way to  handle  that awkward space between the transition from winter to  spring. It also comes in very handy on those sunny yet cold spring days . Plus there's nothing as wonderful as fashion that is utilitarian yet chic.


                                                                      Springs Blooms
Prints are a traditional spring trend largely because they are an embodiment of the time of year and while that's not necessarily the case everywhere this spring, traditions are traditions and prints are in season. From the the bold and wild prints by Totem to the eclectic prints by Dries Van Noten or even the soft and floral prints of   high street giants like Zara and river island,  there is a general consensus on prints as a must-have this spring.



                                                   Valentino's Blocked heels sandals and more colors
The Almighty studded Valentino sandals are immediately recognizable to those of you who follow key fashion blogs or subscribe to any respectable fashion magazine online or the like. These Valentino shoes come in both heels and flats and are hands down the most coveted pair of shoes this spring .These babies retail  from  about 600 to up to 700 pounds . Another coveted but far more affordable pair of shoes is the strappy Zara combination heels like the red and gold one shown below. Colorful sandals and shoes as well as block heeled sandals are also popular trends this spring.


                                                              Winter turned Spring trends
For those of you who invested in a lot of leather, white and camos over winter or simply love these trends, you don't have to worry about completely re-modelling your wardrobe because leather, white and camos are not making an exit. These trends made the cut and have transitioned from huge winter trends to spring trends. Fashionistas as well as brands are simply wearing and selling lighter whites, less bulky leathers and flimsier camouflage pieces. A great way to maintain leather in your spring wardrobe for leather lovers like myself is to transition from wearing thick leather pants or tights to leather shorts and mini skirts as well as short dresses in either pure leather or infusions of other fabrics such as sheer and lace. The same goes for white and camos. Ditch the white jumpers and camo jackets for white tees &button up shirts as well as  camo shirts and shorts. Leather, white and camo pieces could be styled with bright colors and agreeable prints for a more spring ready look.




My styling Bias
This spring blue  appears to be slowly surfacing but not in a magnitude to make it a trend on high alert. Nevertheless its a color i'm partial to and i have taken to a lot of the pieces for spring I've seen in blue. Turquoise is also surfacing here and there and i'm very excited as it is an absolutely stunning color and is also in keeping with the bright eye catching colors that are surfacing as trends this spring. So in honor of my bias i put together an inspirational mood-board of some beautiful prints and items bearing both colors.



I hope these mood-boards are helpful in assisting you plan and improve your wardrobes. Whether the focus is on infusing more colors, re-styling winter trends, re-living the 1990's or just making your wardrobe more trendy and playful remember to just have a good time and keep it 100% you.


                                       Thank you all for reading and have a wonderful week xxx
