From April showers to May flowers, Spring is upon us! Although it may not feel like it yet, before you know it we will be dawning much less coverings. Shorter skirts, lighter jackets, and much more skin on display. That being said here are some of our favorite Spring 2015 Fashion Trends to make you look Phat and Fab with no fuss! Who has time for the fuss, not us!
This being the month of showers it’s no wonder the Rain Coat is in style, I myself love a double breasted Trench with a great umbrella. Or you may like this Isabelo Taledo Ruffle Hem Trench from Lane Bryant. We will be in and out of the showers no need to look like a rubber ducky.
Speaking of rubber duckys, Yellow will be on trend if you choose to sport a yellow rain coat or trench.
Floral and Gingham are the prints to be seen in! I know what you’re thinking “Grandma Gear”. Well think again these are not your grandmothers patterns here, we are seeing bold floral prints and gingham in skirts, bags dress, coats, and all the like this spring.
In fact I scored a floral clutch from one of the second hand stores in my area for little or nothing. So if you’re a little pattern shy just put it in the bag. Check out this gingham pencil skirt from Torrid. I love it! And it fits like a glove.
Prints period will be in! I saw a quote from Steffy Fullstyle on her guest blog post for igigstyle, which said “you should choose the print based on the size of your facial features. If you have big features do big prints, and if you have small features choose a smaller print.” Hmmmm I didn’t know that. So whether you choose floral, check, gingham or polka dots, you’ll be rocking it your way and that’s always the best option!
Boho Chic will be blasting in from the past, I love this trend! You know why right? Need I say effortless! No fuss just fab! I love the Kimonos, The Pendant Necklaces, and the Fringe. This trend has Saddle shaped bags and yes the platform shoe is back. So get Hipppie to it! See what I did right there, you get it Boho is the modern Hippie . * cracking up*
One trend that I am not so fond of for obvious reasons to those who know me is Head to Toe White. Yeah I might try it, but I doubt I it will make it into rotation unless I buy a lot of white. I admire people who wear white, but it’s just not for me. Oh and yes big girls look delicious in white! Like a big old glass of ice cold milk in the morning! Lol!
Don’t for get to add a little sparkle with your statement earrings, chokers, and very femme handbags. I am not a belt wearer but I may try one of those Obi belts.
I’m all about adding to what you already have, I’m not one of those girls that buy a whole new wardrobe every season. So add a few pieces and call it peace! If you choose wisely you can bring these pieces out year after year. Or better yet sell them or give them away and make a coin or two for new pieces.
The jeans are still skinny and distressed, as pictured here by Kim of Naturally Fashionable, so you can still rock last year’s jeans and look great. I love a flat shoe and we saw a lot of flats on the runway, thank God! Sneakers for some have never left but they will be more popular with the continuing sporty trend. Tule skirts and Shirt Dresses are still here!
Remember confidence is always the best accessory, so put on your best you and it will always WERK!
