With the onset of warm weather, it’s time to ditch that winter routine and embrace the spring fashion trends to try. And while last year we saw neon tones and vibrant colour blocking, this season the spring fashion trends to try champion wearable styles in feminine colours. But before you get intimidated (or assume there’s only one go-to spring look), we’ve rounded up our favourite spring fashion trends to try, and how you can apply them to your wardrobe.
In the spirit of Easter’s colour spectrum, pastels rank highest in terms of spring fashion trends to try. With tones like pistachio and robin’s egg blue found in everything from nail polish to sleeveless collared button-ups, a delicate approach to an onset of colour helps deliver much-needed freshness. If you’re not usually inclined to sporting such traditional spring tones, take a bold approach and pick up pastel-toned lace up oxfords. That way, you’ll be on-point with both spring 2012’s colour trends and the season’s must-have shoe.
2. ˜20s Influence
Thanks to collections by Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren, the 1920s won’t only be found onscreen this year. Combining the ultra-feminine vibe of the season with soft, delicate colours, 1920s styles are a classic spring trend to try “ especially when gearing up for a night out. Dressing up a basic black tank through beading and a typical headband with feathers, The Great Gatsby becomes more than just an it-film based on a novel, topped off by chunky heels with a thin ankle strap. To keep the look work-appropriate, pair a beaded tank with a pair of cigarette pants, or dress up the trend with a pleated skirt and ankle boots.
3. Coloured denim
To combat the super-feminine qualities of pastel and ˜20s looks, make coloured denim a priority in terms of spring trends to try. In tones like ruby red, emerald green, indigo blue and even violet, they can breathe new life into staple pieces like white button-ups and black V-neck t-shirts “ especially when paired with bold wedge sandals and a leather bomber. However, as the chameleon of spring fashion trends to try, pair a simple striped long sleeve tee with them instead, cuff the bottoms and top with a low-rise Converse sneaker. Since the rockabilly look is a springtime staple, your errand-running look can go right into a lunch date.
