Switch Your Style in Spring With These Trends

DVF Spring 2018

Spring is 2 months away and I’m longing for warmer weather. No more waking up with freezing temperatures, 5 layers of clothing, and trying to stay warm. I need Florida to hurry up and get back to what we know it for: hot weather and crowded beaches. Some mornings I wake up wishing it was 75 degrees and I can just throw on a dress or a pair of shorts. I’m looking forward to seeing how the new spring trends are interpreted.

 

Springtime is consistently seen as a time for renewal and rejuvenation…that makes it all better to show off what you’ve been hiding underneath all those winter clothes. This year’s trends go beyond your basic floral and pastel colors.

Soft and Feminine

Brock Collection

Think feminine shapes but on another level: cinched-in waists, bell sleeves, and soft florals. The Brock Collection showed a dress for the season that can easily transition from day to night with the right pair of shoes. Accessories need to be simple when wearing florals so there aren’t any distractions. I’d wear the print with simple hoops and sandals.

 Shine Bright

DVF Spring 2018

Sequins and sparkle are no longer reserved for the night. Add some pizazz to your everyday attire with something sparkly (don’t go overboard and end up looking like a disco ball). To make it more daytime-friendly, wear casual items to bring it down from black-tie to brunch.

Fringe Benefit

Christian Dior 2018

Fringe is one of those trends that never gets old. It’s an extra layer of fun for anything it’s on. This Spring, fringe is covering everything from bags to bustiers and is coming in all colors. Christian Dior’s fringe jacket is perfect for those casual days but you still want to effortlessly kill it in the streets.

Short and Sweet

Dolce and Gabbana

Anna Sui

Who says short sets are only for kids? Dolce and Gabbana along with  showed their interpretations of the trend complete with matching blazers. I think a short set is perfect for any occasion like brunch, dinner, or casual Friday’s at work. I might have to try this trend out for myself.

High and Mighty

Isabel Marant

High-waisted anything is key when you want to look cinched and snatched. The great thing about high-waists is it makes your legs look longer and sleeker. My favorite look is from Isabel Marant who gave her pants a menswear-inspired vibe.
