Go ahead, buy two bouquets of those tulips at Trader Joe’s. Pull out the open toed mules you’ve been dying to wear since February. Banish your snow boots to the far edges of your closet and break out the Prosecco, because tomorrow is the first day of spring!
Regardless of the weather you’ve got on your hands — if you’re already sporting sandals to show off your fresh pedicure in the West or still shivering under your faux fur trimmed parka in the East — here are six of our favorite spring trends to incorporate into your wardrobe now, ensuring a seamless transition from winter to spring and beyond!
Typically spring is all about the colors. This year, we’re loving that metallics are on the upswing. If you’re not ready to take the plunge on that silver midi skirt or gold blazer, an easy way to incorporate this trend into your existing wardrobe is with your accessories — think shoes and handbags. Even a little bit of metallic will go a long way!
It’s no shocker that pastels are hot for spring, but light pink hues in particular are popping up everywhere this season. To keep the pink overload from becoming too girly, pair it with some tomboy-inspired pieces like a camo jacket or converse. Tres chic pink not your cup of tea? Baby blue is spreading like wildfire too! But pastels of all shades are welcome in our book— we don’t discriminate!
Neon is our secret guilty pleasure, and we’re so excited that it’s still around this year. A pop of neon will bring some cheer to even your puffiest parka. Remember, keep the rest of your outfit neutral to avoid looking like you got caught in the paint drumming rave scene of Miss Congeniality.
4. A Versatile Spring Tote
After being lugged through rain, snow and sleet, your existing “everyday” bag likely needs to be put out of its misery. Opt for a versatile, roomy tote bag that will get you from work, through the weekends and even to the beach (whenever that day finally comes.) We love this one from Old Navy, which has space for ALL our essentials. Mary Poppins would totally approve.
Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking. Before you get all Miranda on us, we assure you—they’re back and even bigger than ever. If it’s too chilly to sport a skimpy floral sundress, layer a paper thin turtleneck underneath. Or get your floral on with a springy scarf. (Bonus points if you tie it around the handle of your new tote bag!)
6. Cropped White Pants
Throw that old wives tale out the window. You can wear white before Memorial Day. In fact, we’d prefer it that way. Get yourself a cropped pair. We love ‘em all — slim fitting trousers and culottes alike!
