Spring Fashion Trends and Styling Tips
Everyone is eager to get out with the old and in with the new! Fashion trends change from year to year, as we evolve and find new things to stylize with. Now, long pendants and clean, spiffy outfits are in after the year of cool alternative looks. Play with your wardrobe this spring with these new, fresh looks that will make you stand out! Remember, always stay true to yourself when playing around with looks. Fashion is an expression, and what you like is most important. Be yourself to look like a celebrity and feel like one, too!
Athletic is in, and very cute! Show off your feminine features while encouraging activity by adorning fun, flirty athletic themed outfits with a sexy twist. Jerseys and a skirt, body hugging pantsuits, and stripes on shirts and skirts are a fun way to give a clean, active look to a beautiful, girly dress!
Pop with plenty of colour and paint the rainbow! Adding several bright, daring colors may not be for everyone, but this season, challenge yourself by adding in more pops of the rainbow than you normally would. Pair blues and yellows and go as wild as you feel comfortable with. You may discover a brand new look, and being bold will get you noticed!
Play with casual and professional, and mix them up! Pair a baggy, button-down shirt with a nice pair of dress pants, boots or heels, and a killer hairstyle for a look that says you’re both laid-back, but ready to slay! By contrasting the two styles, you’ll create a look that is a happy medium between the two.
Return to the 80s! Last year, we saw a lot of influences in fashion from the 70s when it came to body and print of clothing articles. Now, some designer lines have popped up that scream the 80s, so play into the trend while it’s around and have one! One of the most iconic fashion eras is being recreated, and you won’t want to miss out on the fun.
Add those rough 2016 accessories to softer dresses and skirts! That’s right – don’t throw everything out! Getting a pale, pastel, or white dress or nice outfit and throwing on a cap, spiky necklace, or something else that seems dramatic in comparison will spice the look up and give an edgy feel to a softer look. 2017 is all about hybrid combinations and finding the middle zone by using the two extremes together.
Go big, or go home! Everyone is all about those giant bags, bangles, necklaces, and shoes this season, so join in! Keep your clothes and make-up simple but make a statement with an XL purse or eye-catching jewelry. Don’t layer on too much at one time or you’ll run the risk of looking tacky, not stylish. How about a colourful hat with a white dress? It is sure to attract a lot of attention.

Editor’s Note: I do not follow fashion trends usually since being comfortable in my own skin matters more to me. However, I am definitely loving the Spring 2017 trends as I love accessorising and mixing extremes together. I used wear black a lot but I am trying to incorporate more colours into my wardrobe this year. Thanks for the post Jen!
