After months of puffy jackets, sweatshirts and bundling up, it’s time to ditch the winter gear in favor of something a little more bright.
Fortunately, this spring’s hottest trends are almost as cheerful as the season itself. With bold hues, splashy prints and funky accessories dominating the runways, this spring stands to be the most fun — and stylish — we’ve had in a long time. So break out the sandals, slap on the SPF and check out the best fashion trends to look out for:
There’s nothing like a pop of color to brighten up even the darkest day. Summery shades pack the biggest punch: Try millennial pink — a major 2017 trend — or a cheerful, sunny yellow, as seen at Creatures of Comfort below.
The New Nautical
Nautical stripes get an update with splashy colors and unexpected shapes, as seen at Missoni and Altuzarra. Let your stripes stand out in an all-white outfit, or pair them with florals for a bold, of-the-moment spring ensemble.
More is more this spring, especially when it comes to earrings. Go big with shoulder-grazing drop earrings, as at Delpozo, or opt for an oversized architectural pair for an eye-catching, classy look.
Shoulders are the new cleavage. Instead of cutouts, try a flirty one-shoulder top for an unexpected yet surprisingly wearable take on the breezy trend.
I know, I know: “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” This season, though, they really are, thanks to a one-two punch of saturated colors and graphic — not girly — details. Take a cue from Rosie Assoulin and try neon blooms for a summertime look that slays.
