This spring is set to have some of the best fashion trends yet, with many continuing over from last year’s top trends. Already, fashion designers have been working hard on bringing out new spring lines, and amongst the top looks this spring we can find classics such as floral prints, lace and denim – all perfect for the warmer weather and freshly bloomed flowers. If you’re planning on buying a new spring wardrobe and need to know which the best things to buy are in order to make sure that your outfits are all on point, we’ve put together a round-up of the best fashion trends for the season.
Floral prints may have seen a bit of a decline recently, but they’re back with a bang for this spring. From bold, stand-out prints to smaller, delicate prints, anything with a flower-based pattern on will look perfect in your spring wardrobe. The best thing about floral prints is that they can look great paired with almost anything – floral blouses can be paired with smart trousers for work, or you can dress them down with jeans and flats for a more casual look. Floral shirt dresses are also expected to be big this spring – the perfect garment for those days when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold.
Denim clothing items have been big in recent seasons, and this popular trend doesn’t seem set to go anywhere this spring. Blue jeans are definitely huge this season, which is great as they are one of the most versatile items of women’s clothing that a girl can own. The best thing about denim is that it’s an age old fashion trend that seems to always be incorporated into different fashion trends no matter what the season, so we’ve all got jeans, denim shirts and denim jackets lying around in our closets just waiting to be dusted off and worn this spring.
Suede and suede-look dresses, tops and jackets were huge last spring and summer – and this trend is making a comeback this spring as well. Maroon and dark yellow colors are amongst the most popular this season when it comes to suede clothing items, along with natural suede colors such as browns and beige. Suede is a great fabric for summer as it’s not too thick so doesn’t make you really warm, but it’s also not so thin that you’re freezing on rainy or cloudy spring days.
White, lacy garments are undoubtedly feminine, and if you’re the type who likes to dress in girly outfits then you’ll be happy to hear that lace is set to make a huge comeback this spring. Whether it is lace hems on white jeans, smock tops with lace trims, vest tops with lace backs or dresses with a lace skirt, this material is definitely the one to watch this spring. Wear black lace on a night out for a feminine and glamorous look, or pair white lace with a brown suede jacket and blue jeans for a fresh spring look.
Open and off-the-shoulder necklines have definitely had their moment, but this season it is all about the cold shoulder. Cut-outs that are designed specifically to highlight just the shoulders are a lot easier to wear than off-the-shoulder necklines, as they have a similar effect whilst still allowing you to hide your bra straps – no more need to worry about staying together in a strapless bra!
When it comes to work attire, it’s all about the simple white shirts this season. Once something that was only worn by the boys, white button-down shirts are becoming more and more feminine and are the perfect, simple top for an elegant and professional work outfit. The best thing about basic white shirts is that they are really versatile – whether you pair it with a sleek black pant suit or jeans and a cardigan, they fit in perfectly.
Spring is a weird season – it’s not warm enough for summer dresses and tank tops, but it’s getting too warm for your winter clothes. But, light knit wear is still a firm favorite when it comes to spring fashion trends, especially in light and pastel colors. Lightweight knits make the perfect accompaniment to any spring outfit, and it’s always handy to have one around if the weather takes a turn for the chilly.
