Fashions for spring can range from on-trend colours to key silhouettes. Each year see a new list of items that our wardrobes seemingly must have. Fashion for spring usually revolves around bright colours and lighter palettes, and this year is no different. Take a look at some key spring fashions below, and see what looks you’d like to incorporate into your wardrobe.
1. The Printed Trouser
Graphic techno prints are becoming increasingly popular, and printed pants are a must-have this season. Designers from Stella McCartney to Gucci are all over this look. For those on a budget (which, let’s face it, is most of us), high street stores from Asos to Zara have released a range of inspired and much more affordable printed trousers.
2. The Knife Pleat Skirt
Razor sharp pleats are where it’s at when it comes to fashions spring. From mini to maxi lengths, make sure your skirt has plenty of pleating. Add whimsical accessories to lighten up this look. Team it with silk blouses, ladylike framed bags (no messenger styles), feminine heels or boyish flats. Generally avoid wearing knife pleat skirts with tiered tops, ruffled high neck blouses, and platform shoes.
3. The Boxy Jacket
Boxy jackets are all over the catwalks lately. In the spring, you’ll want one made from a lightweight fabric. They key to pulling off this fashion for spring is to wear it with fitted bottoms – think high waisted shorts or skinny leg jeans. Avoid wearing the boxy jacket with knee length full skirts or flared pants.
4. The Tangerine Something
Tangerine has been named the colour of the year, so adding that something tangerine to your look is a must. It could be as simple as a pair of earrings or a clutch, or as out-there and eye catching as a head to toe tangerine outfit. The key to this fashion for spring is to offset the brightness of the tangerine with a neutral colour palette.
5. The Statement Earring
Put away your statement necklaces for now, because supersized cocktail earrings are the must-have accessory this spring. From chandelier to tassel styles, this season’s earrings are all about being bigger and better. Colourful styles are a funky option, while classic gold and silvers are still super chic.
6. The Peplum Top
Peplum silhouettes are key fashions for spring. Tops with peplum detailing are especially popular. The 50s silhouette has been given a modern makeover thanks to design houses such as the ever influential Céline. When worn in a mostly monochrome colour palette, this look is less retro and more fashion-forward.
7. The Attention-Grabbing Wedge
The shoe for spring is the super wedge. Think attention-grabbing styles in bright colours and unique finishes. Super high platforms are ideal for those who like to can handle the height, while flatforms are suited to those who prefer to be a bit more grounded. Team your wedges with anything from jeans to maxi skirts and dresses.
Fashions for spring are all about having fun with your look. Updating your outfit can be as easy as popping on a pair of colourful earrings or slipping on a pair of wedge shoes. What’s your favourite fashion for spring?
