Spring trends: from the runway to BTR

Ah, Spring. Bicycles everywhere. The smell of freshly-cut grass. Music blasting from cars. And fashion, fashion, and more fashion.

You’ve stored away those ravaged, worn-in boots and you’re ready to go shopping, show some skin, and slip into some eye-catching, spring ensembles. One of the keys to having good style is the ability to pick and choose from various trends and create a look that is all you. Get started with help from these 4 trends.

Stripes:

The nautical look is inescapable right now. You might have heard it’s best to avoid horizontal stripes out of fear of looking wider, but worry not: this trend can be worn many ways. Stripes can be diagonal, vertical, and when paired with skinny pants, your silhouette will look fab. This hot tank from Dots and Dreams is a great example.

Biker chic:

It takes a rare breed to be able to pull off head-to-toe biker babe. For those of us who prefer hobos over Harleys, your best bet is to choose one bold piece and pair it with a demure dress. Burberry motorcycle jackets are definitely enough to instantly add some edge to your style. For a more wallet-friendly alternative, pick up this David Jones bag or these Gee’WaWa boots.

White:

Nothing says spring/summer more than rocking some white. Whether it’s a white-hot maxi dress that looks extra amazing with a nice tan, or a pair of crisp white slacks, this is one trend that everyone can adopt. I suggest investing in loose, capri-style pants. Perfect for relaxing weekends and casual days.

Nudes:

Safari, nude, beige, however you want to call it, it’s everywhere. From killer nude pumps to full on desert-themed dresses, the trend is major. I just love this particular sand-colored dress from Insight. Perfect for the office, or even date night, this is one versatile piece that fits 20-something ladies as well as more mature women.

There you have it. 4 looks for you to rock this minute. Add your own flavor to the mix and make this your most fashionable season yet!
