I am someone who, until a couple of years ago, literally never wore yellow. I didn’t own a single piece of yellow clothing and I’m not sure why. I guess I thought I didn’t look very good in it, and to tell you the truth, I’m still not sure I do, but I don’t care! Yellow is absolutely one of my favorite colors for Spring. In fact, I would say that with the exception of perhaps pink, it is the color that seems most “Springy” to me. Yellow connotes sunshine and lemonade and other summery things, and it looks great with so many other colors! It works with denim, black, white, blues, and even pink. And a little goes a long way…
I love wearing white all year, but of course it’s real home is during the spring and summer seasons. But probably my favorite way of wearing white is to do it head-to-toe. Monochrome dressing has been having a moment lately in all different palettes; with people wearing head-to toe-red, or pink, or denim, which I actually love.
There is something so crisp and clean about Spring, and I think that extends to dressing as well. White is one of my favorite colors (I’m sure you’ve noticed that!) I love it in decor, obviously, but it’s one of my favorite colors to wear as well. And I especially love denim with white. Maybe the reason I love it so much is it’s representative of the blue and white in decor that I’m so fond of. And denim with white is a near perfect combo. Just like blue and white in decor, it’s a fresh take on the season that reads “Spring” loud and clear!
Each spring I like to do a post on the biggest trends for the season. There is something so fun about getting a few new items to add some pep to your wardrobe!
I try to focus on trends that I think will stay around longer, or will have more staying power, as I don’t want to spend money on things that are only here for one season. And to that point, I also don’t think you need to spend a lot on these trends. This is the time to shop the less expensive stores and not pay an arm and a leg. You’ll have a few new things that make you feel more up-to-date and that freshen up your closet, but you haven’t spent so much that you need to feel guilty if they don’t last longer than a season or two. For basics and classic items that are true investment pieces, I do think it’s worth spending more if you can afford it. (I wrote a post here on what to spend more on if you are interested).
Last year bandanas and neckerchiefs (when was the last time you heard that term?) started showing up during fashion week and also on some of the street-style stars and fashion bloggers. If you aren’t aware of this, trends that start with high fashion or during fashion week sometimes die off and never hit the real street (us). However, I have now been seeing neck scarfs showing up around town and on the web. This is a trend that I absolutely love. I mean, is there anything more classic than a chic little neck scarf to add polish to a casual outfit?
I’ve been planning on writing a post about the biggest and best spring fashion trends, but this one I’m loving so much, I just had to give it it’s own post! I’ve been ignoring the flared jean trend pretty hard…. up until now. Two reasons: First, I’m a definite skinny jeans girl and second, I really don’t want to have to buy all new jeans!
