Hey Everyone and welcome back! In the past few weeks I have been incredibly busy and under the weather so I’m sorry I haven’t posted as much as I would have liked. Nonetheless I am back now! As we head into our third month of the year I am beginning to get spring fever, especially with the weather in NY already starting to creep into the 60s. While I’ve been browsing online sites during my free time in the last couple of days, I’ve noticed several trends that I am slowly becoming obsessed with. These are trends I believe will be perfect for the upcoming months and will be huge this spring and summer.
So without further ado let’s jump right into them!
One of the biggest trends of the last few months has been ruffles. They’re girly and feminine and can really make a typical outfit stand out. And they are EVERYWHERE… from dresses, to tops, to skirts, you name it! I strongly believe ruffles are here to stay at least in the upcoming spring and summer months as I don’t see them disappearing both online and in store. Here are some of my favorite pieces that I’ve seen recently:
Straight leg jeans
This is a trend that I think is slowly but surely winning people over. Gone are the days of super tight skinny jeans that you could barely button up. I’m not saying go out and toss all your skinny jeans and jeggings in the trash because granted there are times where skinny jeans just make sense (like when you’re wearing a flowy top or sweater). However, I am definitely seeing more and more people embrace the more relaxed straight leg trend and I think this will continue in the following months. Topshop makes some great pairs.
I am OBSESSED with this trend, which is funny because I actually hated embroidery on my clothes as a kid growing up. I always thought it looked childish (LOL) so I would avoid wearing all the clothes my mom bought me that had butterflies or flowers sewn on. Boy how times have changed. There is something about little delicately embroidered flowers sewn onto everything from denim to shirts to dresses that strikes me as incredibly cute and even sophisticated. Although I don’t see this trend having the same longevity as let’s say straight leg jeans, I do think it’s something fun to try out while its still around, especially in the spring and summer. Some of my favorite items are:
Now this is a trend that kinda grew on me as I kept seeing more and more people styling the Gucci loafers last year. Initially I thought that I wouldn’t be able to pull off the somewhat masculine loafer/ slide trend, but after trying out a few pairs I seem to really like the effortlessness of wearing such a shoe. Instantly you look put together, sophisticated and chic with a pair of loafer slides or mules. Listed below are some alternatives to the Gucci loafers since many of us probably don’t want to drop $500 to try out this trend!
Last but certainly not least, the bell sleeve trend has quietly made its way back into fashion. My love for this trend began last year when I purchased my first bell sleeved top from Zara and fell in love with how great the top looked on me. No matter how I wore it, the blouse was so slimming and stylish. Ever since, I’ve been itching to get my hands on another bell sleeved top for this spring. I think the bohemian look is super cute paired with some distressed denim and nude sandals.
I can’t wait to try out these trends for spring/ summer 2017 in the next few months and I hope you give them a go too! I hope you enjoyed this post and stay tuned for more coming soon!
Until next time,
