Hooray for spring. Just a couple of days away my cyber flâneurs, and what a better way to start the new season other than shopping this weekend for this spring’s essentials. After some thorough research of this year’s spring trends, and from my personal favourites of what I believe makes a spring wardrobe, I compiled a list of 10 must have items for this spring season. Sp here’s my guide as to how you can refresh your spring look for 2015.
1.Fringe me up
I’ve got fringe and tassels on my mind. A big spring trend this year, especially when it comes to accessories. from the movement the fringe and tassels create to the whimsical element they add to the loo, this is definitely a favourite of this year’s spring trends.
2. Floral Prints
Spring forecast is blooming with florals. Floral prints will always be a must have item for your spring collection. I mean, who doesn’t love blooms? It’s self explanatory.
How adorable is this mini bag trend? For those of you that carry their entire life in their purse, probably not the most practical trend for you this season. But, carrying a mini bag can be liberating from everyday burdens since you can only carry essentials.
Haven’t bought a pair of block heels yet, but they are oh so adorable and far more comfortable than stilettos. You can stroll the streets without your feet aching.
Maybe you were seeing spots for a while, but this spring all you will be seeing are stripes. Obsessed with anything that has stripes lately, a trend I will be coveting quite a bit.
All the cool kids will be wearing overalls this spring. Will you be one of them? Another practical and comfortable item that will be part of this spring’s trends. Denim overalls can look a bit outdated if not styled right, so try to keep your look as modern and chic as possible.
You don’t know what you are missing until you own a trench coat. Life saver. Makes you look classic on the outside when underneath you could be wearing a pyjama top. No one will suspect.
8. Ballet flats
Not necessarily a trend this year, but ballet flats always come out of our closet in the spring. You have been wearing a monotone palette all winter, so put those black flats away and make room for colourful ballet flats.
9. Boyfriend jeans
My boyfriend hates my boyfriend jeans, his reasoning- too baggy. Sorry gents, but boyfriend jeans are here to stay till the end of time (luckily for me). Other than my winter shorts, boyfriend jeans are definitely my other signature look. You can easily dress them up or down, comfy and super versatile.
Opt for refreshing vibrant hues when it comes to your pants this spring. Now is the time to add colour in your life.
*Another spring trend of 2015 worth mentioning are culottes. The only reason why I did not include it in my list is because I always try to keep my list with classic items that you will keep in your closet even after the season has passed. Trends come and go, and unless you think a trend can find leeway for seasons to come, I stay away from adding them to my closet. Unless of course I really love an item.
