Question: How can I incorporate multiple spring fashion trends into one outfit?
Answer: Being fashion-savvy is all about knowing what’s trendy—and making it wearable. With so many exciting trends this spring, it can be a little tricky to mix and match them without looking too over-the-top. Clearly, you don’t want to be a fashion victim, but you should still have fun experimenting with new pieces. So get inspired by these trendy yet wearable combo ideas to make the most of this season’s purchases.
The trend: Denim
Mix it with: Tribal
Combine your beloved denim jacket with a tribal romper for a casual bohemian style that screams spring!
The trend: Skater skirt
Mix it with: A bomber jacket
For a relaxed, feminine look—pair a skater skirt with a sporty jacket. I’m completely in love with this Victoria’s secret one; it has pink pastel sleeves with some tropical prints going on, which is another big trend right now.
The trend: Lace
Mix it with: The slogan top trend
This lace pencil skirt and typographic crop top mix is both formal and fun. Due to the length of the skirt, you won’t feel like you’re showing too much skin.
The trend: Bright leather jacket
Mix it with: Graphic prints
This season, switch out your regular black leather jacket for bright colors. Add graphic printed pants, and bam—you’re boldly chic!
The trend: Pastels
Mix it with: Stripes
This spring, choose minty colored pants and wear them with this breton t-shirt, an all-time favorite that’s both timeless and sophisticated.
The trend: Metallics
Pair it with: Sneakers
Dare to ditch your heels this spring, because sneakers are totally in. Glam it up with metallic shorts.
The trend: Pleated skirts. They’re back, ladies!
Mix it with: The white-all-over trend, pastels
For a clean, feminine look: pair a white pleated skirt with a white top and pastel bag as seen at the Ports 1961 Spring/Summer 2014 catwalk. As you can see in the picture, the gown is completed with embellished orthopedic shoes, which I still can’t assimilate as a trend (so I won’t talk about it). Really hope it’s just a fad. That being said, if a trend doesn’t suit your style or you just don’t get it, that’s OK. Staying true to your style is way more chic.
