Hey everyone!! I haven't done a trend watch since last fall and I figure it's about time for a spring trend update!
DISCLAIMER: never sacrifice fit or comfort for a trend. Most trends do not last. It is not worth it. That being said, here are a few on-trend styles, colors, and accessories that have been circulating the small-town stores that you should get in on and stay out of.
Basic sweatpants and pullovers are getting re-vamped in bright neon greens and oranges with contrasting stitching. Even running shoes are getting in on the trend...FINALLY, one can be adorable while working out!
This trend is easy to work with piece-by-piece and super fun to put into outfits. With punchy reds and blues combined with classic black and denim items and statement jewelry, you're sure to look chic. Keep an eye out for eye-catching backs in tops and dresses!
Pastels are always a spring staple, but mint greens and soft shell pinks have been showing up everywhere in all manner of items. The colors are universally flattering and will carry well into summer.
A lot of people don't think they can pull this look off, but nothing rings in spring like a pair of bright bold pants. Setting if off with an easy, plain top makes for a simple, pulled-together look.
From cool metal accents to intricate leather cutouts, your plain flat sandal is getting an update this year.
I don't know why shorts keep getting shorter because I don't know a single girl whose butt/hips can handle shorts with no inseam. Just don't, ladies.
This has been a thing for a long time, but I've been seeing it more and more as the weather gets warmer and people are wearing their workout-wear outside. All I know is that leggings should never be pants. Ever.
Tye-Dye hasn't been in since I was in elementary school, and it's coming back now in extraordinarily odd colors and fabrics. Chiffon and tye-dye do not belong. Nor does gatorade orange and tye-dye. Who thought that was a good plan?
How anyone walks in them is beyond me...there are plenty of wedges and flat sandals that are just as cute and far more practical. Plus no woman needs to be that tall.
Whoever decided cheap-o glittery rhinestone jewelry should be in was really dumb. It always looks inexpensive and juvenile.
