Confession: I’ve spent the greater part of this winter hiding under my snuggie. You could say I was staying warm and hibernating or just plain being lazy – and you would certainly be right! Once the clock struck March, I knew I had to get out there, and the excuses just wouldn’t cut it. My motivation, you say? SPRING FASHION, OF COURSE! In the tail end of this never ending winter, I’ve quietly been taking notes and stashing pieces in my closet. Despite the frosty forecast, I know that sooner or later the snow will melt and I have to emerge from this fleeced out cocoon – and I better do it in style. A girl HAS to have her priorities! Without further interruption, I bring to you the most anticipated fashion trends of this upcoming season! Spring 2014 is beckoning us to awaken from our slumber!
1. Wearable Art
Beautiful paintings on your wardrobe and shoes will be all the rage this upcoming season. If being a walking Picasso is too much for you, then pack those clothes you love into this bold luggage set that’s impossible to loose at the airport!
2. Roses are Red … and Yellow … and Blue
The floral motif of these Dr. Martens penny loafers captures the softer, more romantic side of Spring. Pair them with some jeans and a blazer for a subtle floral ensemble. Ready for more flower power? Tuck a bright daisy on the smaller side of your parted hair and throw on a maxi dress in full bloom, such as this V-Neck dress by Lole.
3. Black & White
Classic, fresh and sophisticated, the mixing of black and white patterns can carry you from all business at the 10 AM meeting to the life of the party on a Friday night. Polka dots, stripes, checkered prints, or just the basic, white tee and black pants – they will all work!
It’s not just cheetah prints and neutrals this season, the jungle has been set loose! If you want to test the waters, try adding a bold shoe, such as the Safari pump by Pinup Couture or even a modest safari hat or sunglasses to get you started.
Break out the bedazzler and give those clothes buried in your closet the encore they’ve been waiting for! Give your favorite jeans and edge with some silver studs, or liven up a simple black tee with colored gems. If you’re just beginning, a little bit can go a long way. For beginners this python studded sandal can add a kick of style to an otherwise demure wardrobe. If you’re ready for more, this Ariat Long sleeve shirt has just the right amount, paired off with a pair of blue jeans & boots and you’re ready to go!
6. Wear What Feels Good
Take in the color palettes, get inspired, and use your imagination! If you haven’t worn a crop top since your first pregnancy, or don’t even know what a bedazzler is, that’s ok! Put your own twist on things. Don’t be afraid to try something new. Even the simplest change, be it a new shade of lipstick or a fresh haircut can you feel renewed this spring.
