Even though it’s still cold in Syracuse, Spring has officially sprung. AKA Spring is finally here, AKA warm weather is coming!! Now don’t get me wrong, I am all about chunky sweaters and cozy leggings; however, I am sooo ready to trade in my favorite winter looks for some fresh spring finds. Normally, I have a “florals? for spring? groundbreaking” type of attitude towards spring fashions, but this year’s trends are fun and bold. Designers weren’t kidding around this season, as Spring 2018’s trends are MAJOR.
With most of the fashion weeks around the world wrapping up, we can already see which trends have been loved and which ones weren’t so successful. I think the best way to tell what everyone is liking is based on influencers Instagram’s. If your favorite blogger is obsessed, you won’t be far behind. I have a handful of bloggers on Instagram whose style I absolutely love, and I get inspired by the way they style certain clothes together and risks they take with new trends. But, I also follow a lot of my favorite clothing brands on Instagram, so I can stay up to date with their newest lines.
Here’s the trends that I have personally been loving and that I think are going to be huge this season!
Fanny Packs. I am here for this trend. 90s trends have been having a comeback for a while, with denim trends and chockers being all the rage, so it’s no surprise that fanny packs are back. They’re all over the runways and Instagram. While I may not be able to afford a $900 fanny pack, I’ll still be participating in this trend. Practical and fun, what more could you want?! Gucci has the fanny pack of my dreams.
Polk-a-dots . The perfect print for spring/summer, polk-a-dots will add a much needed pop of fun into our wardrobes. Whether the print is in bright colors or neutrals, it still has a care-free essence. As seen on Instagram by my favorite influencers, this trend is definitely wearable. I’ve been loving these polk-a-dot pieces: Forever 21 Dress, Revolve Matching Set, ASOS Bikini
Statement earrings. Every girl has their little diamond studs that they were all. the. time. Boring… it’s time to spice things up ladies. Hoops are a start, but step it up with statement earrings. Statement earrings instantly make a simple outfit more interesting and they bring everyone’s attention up to your beautiful face. A win-win. Express has some of my favorite statement earrings that are reasonably priced and also high quality!
Sheer/ transparent. This trend can be a little intimidating, but I’m loving it! On the runways, models often wear nothing under these sheer pieces, so, clearly that’s not wearable for everyday purposes. The key to making this trend work IRL is to get cute bralettes to wear under your sheer pieces that are cute on their own, but also compliment your sheer statement piece! It’s a cool look for a girls night out. You can also start introducing this trend to your closet with transparent accessories…baby steps!
Nike Air Force 1s. It’s going to be the sneaker of the season, and every “it girl” is going to be sporting it—they already are. Dress them up or dress them down, they’re effortless and cool. It’s a timeless purchase, that’s going to be all the rage this season. Obviously, you can find these at nike.
I’ve realized two things after writing this post…
1. I am beyond ready for spring weather
2. I have a fashion taste that’s way out of my broke-college-student price range… and I seriously can’t wait until I’m successful and can afford all this stuff hehe.
I’m stoked for spring, and these trends are only adding to that excitement! Hopefully you like these trends as much as I do and try them out yourselves!
