I cannot believe it’s already the end of winter. And, with the end of winter comes the beginning of spring. Sometimes, making that transition, fashion-wise can be difficult. On the one hand, the days are longer, and the weather is warmer. That often means higher hemlines, sleeveless silhouettes, and fewer layers. On the other, it’s not summer yet, and conditions are unpredictable. One moment it’s sunny and warm, next it’s freezing and pouring rain. Since this season can be so unpredictable and strange, your spring fashion must be uncomplicated. And what is more uncomplicated than embracing trends that you likely already own? So, here are a few trends that involve items you probably already have in your closet.
Let your shoulders and back breathe – it’s their time to come out and shine! With 2000s fashion returning in full force, halter tops are really going to be everywhere in the coming months. This sexy style will match perfectly with tailored bottoms and classic stilettos. Backless items fit both formal and casual outings and are comfortable while also being a show-stopper. This style perfectly captures the saying: “business in the front, party in the back!”

It seems that these days, everything that has some nostalgia attached to it is an instant success. And the florals, which are an ever-lasting spring trend and a no-brainer, are no different. This season, it’s all about patterns inspired by the ’60s and ’70s. Unexpected color combinations – for example, green, gray, and baby blue – and soft, feminine fabrics are the elements to lead this trend this season. Coordinating heels and chunky gold jewelry will then top off your retro look. However, as mentioned before, florals are a spring no-brainer, so you can never go wrong with this pattern.

What’s not to love about a playful puff sleeve? The puffed-sleeves trend has been dominating the fashion world for a few years now, and it doesn’t seem it’s going to change any time soon. With minimal effort, you can take your outfit from so-so to statement-making, and it’s an easy way to elevate even the most casual bottoms. A puff-sleeved tee styled with denim shorts and clean white sneakers will quickly become your go-to look for the season.

Dressing for the cooler months can be challenging. A major sweater may seem like the obvious answer at first, but it runs the risk of feeling a tad bit overdone. So, if you’re not quite ready to give up comfy clothing, but you’d still like to graduate from those sweatpants you’ve worn all year, this trend is for you. Knitwear offers all those same cozy vibes while being a bit more glam than your typical loungewear look. Knitwear is gracefully toeing the line between warmth and sophistication and is perfect for this spring season.
