SPRING IS HERE! I am living for this years spring trends because they are very unique and different than we have seen in recent seasons and even past Spring seasons. I am the biggest fan of the pastel colors and feel like I have been adding one item after another of pastel items into my shopping carts. I wanted to dig into this Spring’s trends and really highlight 4 big ones and do some honorable mentions while we are at it. What is y’all’s favorite spring trend so far this year?
Pastels are a major hit this spring with a massive trend around bubblegum pink. It’s not hard to see why this perky shade of pink is resonating right now. I think everyone is ready to make a statement with their clothing after such a quiet year. The whimsical color couldn’t have come at a more perfect time, as neutrals dominated for several seasons and many of us are eager to dress up again. You’re bound to turn heads and make every outing or errand a lot more fun and exciting when wearing this shade of pink.
This may have been the year that over-the-top fashion took a back seat, but a new approach to style prevailed, and knit sets coming in at third place is proof of this. The perfect happy medium, they’ll still look just as fantastic worn outside of the house as they do inside. Seeing as these knit sets are offered in a range of combinations for every occasion, mood, and season, they’re here to stay, pandemic or not. Nope, these aren’t made just for your couch anymore. (Though, they’re very couch friendly.) Comfy, chic, and cold-weather approved. In fact, we’re already seeing warm weather–friendly updates that make these sets ideal for grocery store runs, errands, brunching, and everything in-between as we move into spring and summer. Investing in one is wise—they’re basically begging to be mixed and matched with the rest of your closet.
We heard you loud and clear: Spring 2021 is still all about these serious stompers. These are reaching staple status in our wardrobes now. As fashion people, I love the cool statement they make. I say the chunkier the better. I love shoes that scream ‘I’m here.’ But style aside, seeing how practical, effortless, and versatile these lug soles are, it’s no wonder why they’ve had such sartorial staying power. I’ve charted the evolution of these chunky stompers from the tried-and-true ankle boots of Bottega Veneta to the Chelsea boots that proliferated in the fall to their most recent iteration—the knee-high chunky boots that have earned a spot in every fashion girl’s closet. After all, “Nothing screams power and confidence quite like a pair of chunky boots.”
Coming in hot as our runner-up is the denim shape of the year: relaxed jeans. To me, there’s nothing cooler than a pair of loose, lived-in denim, especially if you’re feeling anything like me and are ready to burn your sweatpants. It’s only right that baggy jeans made a comeback in a big way this spring to make the transitional process less painful and more stylish. If you’re new to the upsized-denim look, we get that it can be intimidating to try. I’m planning to wear them with an oversize blazer, white tee, and heels. That’s a combo I’d recommend to anyone looking to dip their toe into the relaxed look but still remain polished.
Shear Tops, Sweatpants, Flatforms/Grown-Up Flats, Pleats, Retro Pants, Summer Camp Jewelry, Cut-Outs, Trousers, and Checkerboard.
