Fashion Trends for Spring
Sporty, romantic, girlie, spring has a little something for everyone.
1. Shine on
Gleaming golds, silvers and bronzes add some excitement to the drab colours you’ve probably been wearing all winter. Try it out with a silver bag or shoe.
2. Sporty spice
Comfy clothes get top marks as the trend to watch. Sneakers and layered athletic wear mean there’s no such thing as being dressed “too casually” this season.
3. Power pigments
Remember all those blinding colours you wore in the ‘80s? They’re back, whether you like it or not. Electric blue, bright yellow and shocking purple - stick to an accessory if you’re aren’t daring enough to brave a
We can’t promise it will be the best fashion purchase you make, but you will never be hit by a bus because the driver didn’t see you.
4. All clear
It may not be the naked news you were hoping for, but spring’s accessories include bags made of clear vinyl, Lucite jewellery, even sheer fabrics are making an appearance.
5. Head case
This season, you don’t even need the good ol’ “I slept through my alarm” excuse when explaining your ‘do at the water cooler. Hair has never been so simple: Simply pull back into a ponytail or bun and finish off with a headband.
6. Playing dress-up
Shifts, one-shouldered, minis, you can’t go wrong with a new dress this time around – which means you don’t have to worry about pulling off a particular style, you’re bound to find something in your shopping travels.
7. Monochromatic musings
Mixed in with all the splashes of colour is good ol’ black-and-white, especially in big, graphic patterns. Keep it from looking too boring by accessorizing with a red belt or shoe.
8. Embellish the story
Chunky stones cover jewellery, clothes, shoes and bags that looked like they were dipped in glue and rolled in someone’s rock collection. Tone it down for everyday wear with a beaded tunic or cuff.
9. Garden party
The voluminous chiffon layers, pastels and florals that floated down the runway may not work for the office, so stick with a ruffled shirt, a flower-patterned dress or some ballet flats.
10. Global girl
Tribal prints in earthy, neutral hues add a little spice to your wardrobe. And as if we needed to tell you, but skip the turbans that were spotted on runways–these are a fashion don’t in our books, no matter who’s wearing them.
