Hope everyone is having an amazing week! I was inspired to write this post due to my pull towards these particular trends this year, I thought it would be fun to round up my top 5 favorite spring trends and share them with you all. I'd also love to hear about your favorite trends! Leave me a comment below with trends that you love that I didn't include. Enjoy!
Showing Some Shoulder
This is my first trend because it is my favorite one! I'm loving the peek of shoulder for spring, especially since we've spend months covered up in knits and jackets. Off the shoulder items are not hard to pull off, as long as you buy the items in your correct size. Pair tops like this with distressed denim or a clean-cut skinny jean. Add a dainty, short necklace like this one or a pair of statement earrings (these are my fav's this year) to create the perfect look. We'll be seeing this trend look more tailored this year vs. last years casual boho vibe. I'm loving the one shoulder look that's showing up this year also! Expect 2017's interpretation of the trend to be more elevated and sophisticated with stripes and shirting details. Here are some purchases I've made for spring, as well as some items that I have in my shopping cart:
The Not So Basic Loafer Slide
This one has been around since last spring, and it is back with a vengeance for 2017! It all started with the Gucci loafer, and this beauty was seen on every blogger and celebrity in 2016. Luckily for us frugal fashionistas, there are a million options this year at a much affordable price, as you've seen on my instagram, I got these Sam Edelman loafers for around $100 (a far cry from the $1,000 price tag of their designer counterparts) and they are just as chic as any other high end brand! I love that this shoe can elevate a basic outfit so quickly without sacrificing comfort (great for prego's like me!) I've included options below that I have, or have my eye on.
The Statement Sleeve
Sleeve details are HUGE this spring! Expect to see embellishments such as ruffles, lace, an eyelets. The more dramatic, the better! I myself have indulged in a few pieces with different sleeve details, but my favorite by far has to be this Zara shirt with the tiered, bubble sleeves. Such a unique twist on a basic piece, and it's only $49.90! There are affordable options all over, I've linked more of my favorites below.
We all saw the return of these Chloe inspired espadrilles... the shoe from last spring that sold out so quickly, but is back with a vengeance, and more availability this spring. Of course this trend is expected this time of year, but there looks to be more sophistication in this years options. The once "beach shoe" can now be worn to work in 2017 with the cute styles that have appeared this time around. I've invested in a few pairs already, and I have my eye on a couple more to add to my wardrobe! I've linked them all below... comfort wise you can't beat these flat espadrilles, they are AMAZING, and by far my favorite shoe that I've worn since I've been pregnant! check them out!
The hoodie made it's comeback in 2016 and it is definitely not going anywhere for spring 2017. The "athleisure" trend can be tricky... there's only about one degree of difference in looking like you're headed to spin class vs. headed to Sunday brunch. Put simply, just make sure when you're taking part in this trend that you choose a couple pieces of athletic wear and add some regular classic pieces to normalize the outfit and overall make you look more put together. A great example of this (and an outfit I like to wear often) would be my favorite leggings, a neutral t-shirt, a pair of Nike's, add on a statement bag and a leather jacket or blazer to complete the look. So easy and SO comfortable. But really, this trend is the hardest to mess up. As long as you stick to a mix of both athletic wear and regular clothing in a neutral palette, you'll look effortlessly fashionable!
These are just few of my favorite trends this season! I know there are many popular trends that I didn't include, but I wanted to give you all a snapshot of what I've been wearing and will continue to wear going in to spring! What is your favorite trend? I'd love to hear about the pieces you've been loving for spring! Let me know in the comments below!
