Classic styles help ground a wardrobe, and the trendy pieces keep your look current and prevent wardrobe boredom. But how bold to go with a trend is a personal choice. Some woman go all in, and can rock a loud, bold, extremely trendy item that looks like it walked right off the runway and works perfectly for 1 season only. Other woman, like myself, are more comfortable giving a gentle nod to trends by picking pieces that will last beyond 1 season. With that in mind here are 3 spring trends that immediately caught my eye and will work both this year, and beyond.
Long, short, cropped, tan, black, trench coats are everywhere in this year’s spring collections. The ultimate classic trench coat is mid or long in length and a tan color, such as this Burberry Kensington Long Trench Coat. If you love the look of a classic trench but the smaller fit of a Burberry (they run 1 to 2 sizes small) and/or the price tag does not strike your fancy, this Halogen Detachable Hood Trench and the BP Double Breasted Belted Trench are also nice options. If you’re not in the market for a new coat but like the look of a trench, you can take a nod to the trend with this Bardot Military Trench Dress.
Flat shoes are having a moment and I couldn’t be happier about it. And so are my fussy feet. Currently available in tons of colors, loafers add a preppy vibe to any outfit and work just as well with jeans, and with dresses, and with shorts, well you get the idea, they go with everything!
Ruching is when the fabric has been pulled, gathered, or folded into one spot. Ruching is often seen in dresses and swimsuits because the pulled fabric creates a slimmer mid-section. This Chaus Floral Ruched Midi Dress and La Blanca Swimsuit are 2 great examples of ruching and would be lovely wardrobe additions. If you are looking for something that’s a little more “fun” and fits a casual wardrobe, try this Gibson Tie Sleeve Hoodie or this Gibson Tie Sleeve Cozy Fleece Top.
What spring trend are you thinking of adding to your wardrobe this season?
