After surviving Snowmageddon 2017 earlier this week, the thought of spring and warmer weather is hard to wrap my mind around. I feel like this year will be one of those years when we go straight from winter to summer with only a few weeks of spring. With that being said, spring is one of my favorite seasons, fashion wise! I love being able to branch out and shed the winter layers. Putting away the bulky sweaters and replacing them with florals and fun shades just brings such life! Spring fashion brings a great energy and excitement that I always look forward to.
Spring fashion has a few trademark looks that always seem to stick around, florals, pastels, and feminine pieces. However, each year there seems to be a little twist and update added to the current trends. For those wanting to embrace spring fashion and stay on top of trends, I decided to create a post that sums up some of the best trends to look for this season!
Top Spring Fashion Trends
I love LOVE ruffles! This love affair probably started as a child. You can ask my mother! Dresses were my go-to daily outfits, and the rufflier the better! Ruffles add such a feminine touch to any outfit. Ruffle tops are definitely in for spring and add such character to any outfit!
2. Fun Sleeves!
Fun sleeves has been a trend that has been around since fall, and it's not going anywhere! This is also a great trend that I'm in love with! Bell sleeves are just the start! This spring you'll see a ton of different tops with ALL kinds of sleeves. I love the sleeves with unique draping and accent bows. Off the shoulder tops are also sticking around this season! Pairing a top with fun sleeves with a simple pair of jeans, creates a perfect spring look!
3. White white!
Usually the spring time is all about colors! This spring is no different, color is definitely in! However, one of this season's trends is white everything! Tops, bottoms, jackets, dresses, you name it! There's a crispness that white gives to any look. As a fashionista you want to look as fresh as possibly this spring!
4. Lace-up everything!
Laces were definitely a trend this fall that is sticking around. For the spring, they are taking on a new life. A little bit more feminine and not so edgy. You'll find laces on all sorts of pieces. Anything from shoes to tops! For spring, I'm loving lace up tops with tassel details.
5. And of course floral!
You can't enjoy spring fashion without a good floral print! Florals are always in for spring. Each season they are reinvented in a new way. This season seems to be all about large bold floral prints. Steer away from subtle or smaller prints. Light and airy pastel florals are on trend. So be on the look out for fun tops to mix and match with different looks!
This week's look is inspired by some of my favorite spring fashion trends! As you might have noticed, I have a slight obsession with off-the-shoulder tops. :) So naturally I found a way to incorporate one into this outfit! I love the freshness of white for spring and the fun sleeve trend, so I love how this top from the LOFT incorporates both! Even though it IS spring, I couldn't get away from an edgy pair of black ripped jeans. ;) I like the look of incorporating a feminine top and an edgier pair of pants. I accessorized the look with suede neutral lace-up sandals and a simple gold collar necklace to accentuate the fun neckline of this top!

Even though it might still be FREEZING outside, I've got spring on my mind! We still have piles on PILES of snow melting here in NYC! (I hope that'll be the last of that white stuff!) With spring around the corner, I hope all my fashionistas are feeling equipped and in the know about some of this season's hottest trends! The great thing is, most of these trends have been around and are just slightly reinvented! So for the frugal gals out there, this can mean just piecing together items already in your closet in a new and fresh way!
Here's to hoping spring comes soon loves!
