Don’t you just love learning about all the different spring style trends? After a long winter, we all need the pick-me-up of some spring colors and new ideas to brighten our world. Let’s look at some of the top spring trends you will want to enjoy.
We may think of white dresses as reserved for that special walk down the aisle or for trips to the beach in the middle of summer. But this spring, you are likely to see these lovelies everywhere. In all kinds of styles and lengths, from gauzy to tailored, white dresses are all the rage.
A white dress is one of the easiest garments to style, too. Just add a pair of shoes in white, a light neutral, or a fun pop color, and you have an instant outfit. And white can work for both day and night in the spring. Whether you are running errands, going out to lunch, or enjoying an evening out, you will look and feel great in a new white dress.
For those who like long and lovely skirts and dresses, you’ll be happy to know that maxi dresses for women are staying on trend for this spring! There are so many advantages to maxi skirts and dresses that it is hard to keep track of them all. The longer silhouette is graceful and lovely. As long a maxi dress is properly proportioned for your frame, petite women, plus-size women, and tall women will all look great wearing one. You can dress them up or down with footwear and jewelry. A simple pair of flat sandals in a light-colored neutral shade will make them look almost like beachwear, while a statement necklace and earrings and dressy metallic sandals will work for eveningwear. You also have “instant coverage” with a maxi dress — no worrying about where your hem will land when you bend over to pick up something you dropped or are getting into or out of a car.
We all love our jeans. That’s why this trend will be extra fun. Jeans decorated with embroidery, fabric paint, and sequins are in style this spring. If you are crafty, take your favorite pair of women’s jeans and embellish them however you like. If you prefer to let others do the crafting, keep an eye out for jeans with embroidered detail or look for them in a craft fair or vintage shop near you.
Another note on jeans for this spring, low-rise jeans are back in style. If you love this look, you are in luck. If not, no worries. The best pair of jeans is a pair that fit your current curves, is comfy, and makes you look and feel great. If you are shopping for new jeans this spring, take your current measurements and try on different styles in front of a full-length mirror to see what works best for you and your style.
If you love your women’s skirts but also want the comfort of denim, this is your season. And the best news is that knee-length or lower is what is in style most, so this is a truly wearable trend (unlike some of the very artistic but less than practical ideas that we all see on the catwalk).
If you have a denim skirt that you haven’t worn in a while, get it out and style it with a fun women’s white blouse or a cute spring women’s T-shirt. For footwear, consider booties, flats, sandals, or even a cute pair of sneakers. One of the best parts about a denim skirt is that it is versatile.
More good news! For those of you who recently tried a shacket for the first time (or thought about it but didn’t quite get it done), they are still in style this spring. A shacket takes its name from the combination of a shirt and a jacket and is like an oversized extra warm shirt. If you wore one in the fall, you may have paired it with jeans and a sweater (still a good option). For spring, however, you have even more choices. Shackets look great with skirts, T-shirts, and casual dresses. Take your favorite T-shirt dress or sundress and add a shacket, and you not only have a more practical outfit if it gets chilly, but you also now have a more on-trend outfit.
Shackets also come in all types of colors and patterns, which make them fun for spring. Try a neutral shacket with a colorful dress or perhaps a pop color or floral jacket over a solid-colored neutral dress or shirt and skirt combination. Shackets and dresses look cute with sneakers, too, so you can be stylish and comfy at the same time.
