Spring is upon us and what better way to jump into the season than to upgrade your wardrobe? For the girlies, a hyperfeminine look with bold colors and underwear worn as outerwear as well as matching sets are making an appearance. For the guys, showing off personality with accessories, oversized tops and bottoms, and varsity looks will be the go-to.

So let’s get into it, all the colors, patterns, style trends, and pieces you’ll need to dominate the season. This article will help you stay in the know and help keep your shopping trips focused on the things you will really need. This will help you to be on the lookout for these pieces before they sell out, and they will. You’ll be the one to stand out this spring and have people asking where you got your looks, from the outfit to the accessories. 

Everyone may have noticed the Y2K aesthetic coming back into style, but it will be in full swing by the spring (bars). With mini skirts and low-rise pants coming back into style there will be a shift in the trends we have seen in the past few seasons, as we move away from high-rise bottoms. Other trends that will be making an appearance include cutouts, halter necks, trouser suit sets, bralettes as tops, and fringe and feathers. Bright matchy-matchy sets with prints and patterns are also making their way onto the scene and will be great for a day fit or night out.

This spring there will be a lot of monochrome looks as well as mixing and matching muted colors with bold pop colors. Hot pink, yellow, and lime green are predicted to be the pop colors for the season so be on the lookout for pieces that will fit into your wardrobe within this color scheme. Patterns, especially psychedelic and “trippy” patterns, will be a great addition to your outfit to add a unique touch to your look.

I’ve taken a look at the most important upcoming trends for the spring season this year so that you have a pretty straightforward buying and dressing guide. I know it can be hard to stay on top of the latest trends because they can change so fast, but that’s where I come in. From the love for oversized and bold garments to the rise of cut-out vests, I got you covered.
