8 Early-Spring Trends That’ll Put a Warm-Weather Pep in Your Step
After months of puffer coats and hair-flattening beanies, the end of winter is finally in sight. It’s so close, we can practically taste the rooftop bar rosé cocktails where, despite the fact that it is after 5:30 p.m., the sun still has not set. Luckily, we don’t have to wait until that magical day appears to start wearing some of spring’s biggest trends. Here are eight styles to try ASAP.
Statement Trench Coats
Trench coats are a classic, but it’s the bright, bold and unexpected versions that are stealing the spotlight. Find one in a vibrant floral pattern to keep you warm way into spring.
Just like stripes or florals, it’s the perfect print for mixing and matching multiple pieces. Don’t be afraid to put together a complete outfit that has different sizes (or colors) of dots. In fact, it’s encouraged.
A slick patent finish isn’t just for your shoes. Switch things up with a shiny pair of joggers, a pencil skirt or a jacket. Pair whichever piece you choose with a casual tee and sneakers so you don’t look like you just popped out of the Matrix.
Raw hems and distressed knees are fine, but the trend this spring is all about intricate and exaggerated details like bows, buckles and patches. Wear them as you would your favorite pair of skinnies to take your favorite go-to look up a notch.
Swap vintage browns and oranges for fresher colors like millennial pink, deep purple or anything pastel. And as long as both prints have at least one color in common, consider mixing and matching here, too.
Whether you’re partial to the sporty track pant or a more tailored look, a thick stripe down the side of your leg is super flattering and works to both slim and lengthen your stems. Just make sure the material has a nice sheen to it if you want to work them into a dressier look.
Yes, it’s a fancy name for a high-end fanny pack. And yes, we now own three. But if you’re still not sure about wearing one at your waist, try draping it over one shoulder like a sash for a cool update on the regular crossbody.
