Fashion Trends for Spring and
There's excitement in the air every spring when new
fashions emerge and help us brush off the winter doldrums. What's
interesting this year are some versatile styles that fit in perfectly
with a tight budget. Nowadays, you need to be a smart shopper and choose
clothing that will mix and match with what's already in your closet.
Although there's fewer indulgences, this season's
fashion trends for spring and summer are a whole lotta fun. Celebrities
know that vintage is where it's at and that's why you see them wearing
an array of garments that appear to be one-of-a-kind. Peasant blouses,
classic dresses, trousers, and handbags are a steal at secondhand shops.
Besides that, you'll see many new trends that are turning heads yet have
affordable price tags.
Colors making a splash this spring are orange,
aqua, and sunny yellow. Purple beats out red as the top, hot color
that will surely get you noticed.
The palette for formalwear offers up powdery
pastels and classy, ever-so-trendy silver, gold, and white so you
can dress up in style. Teens are lovin' these colors for prom!
Silver and gray replace black for warm weather
neutrals. Whether matte or metallic, these two colors add dimension
to otherwise solid styles.
If you're partial to black, forgo the monochrome
look and pair it up with white for a current color combo.
Classic tan and military green go great together,
not only for solid pieces but for the very trendy camouflage styles
as well. Whatever your choice, these colors need simple accessories
such as a belt or gold chain.
Styles and Patterns
Fashion trends for woman this summer will
showcase frilly and feminine styles with sheer fabrics and lace
accents. In addition to playing peek-a-boo, we're seeing exposed
midriffs as shirts go shorter. Proceed with caution.
Sleeves take a backseat to this year's
sleeveless, off-the-shoulder, and cutout designs -- making shoulders
a perfect place for a light dusting of bronzing powder.
Shirt dresses are flirty and give you lots of
movement on a spring day or hot summer night. Floral and playful
prints add a variety of color and can help you look just a bit
Fashionable, military inspired clothing shows
your support and is an instant hit for casual wear. Take your pick
from light, cotton cargos, camouflage, walking shorts, and belted
Every woman should have at least one classic,
white, button down shirt. Vintage or not, these shirts will go with
just about anything and adjust easily to work or play.
Bring out your animal instinct with giraffe,
ostrich, or leopard prints. To avoid looking like you're part of the
safari, pick patterns wisely and pair with solid colors. If that's
still a bit too much, limit the prints to shoes, a belt, or handbag.
All-in-one outfits take the guesswork out of
matching separates. Look for one-piece styles such as cropped
pantsuits and jumpsuits that will look great with different styles
Fashion Accessories, Jewelry, and
Just a few valuable accessories are all you need.
Belts, sashes, and head scarves are abundant this spring and work
well in moderation.
Gold is making a comeback, revealing itself in
gold-silver combos in jewelry. Great for the girl who can't decide,
she can have both at once!
Cuff styles are in for watches and bracelets. Too
bulky for you? Wear just the right amount of bangle bracelets to
complete your ensemble.
Size counts when it comes to handbags. Many
celebrities prefer leather carryalls and designer tote bags to lug
around their worldly possessions. The extra space is handy for new
celebrity moms who refuse to forgo fashion to practicality.
The runway is showing shoes that have substance
with more sole and heel, which elongates legs and adds height. High
heels and weaved wedges are a just the thing for summer, casual and
dressy all at once.
For those who prefer flats and a very trendy
style, opt for those with pointy toes. Want to be a tad more
conservative? Choose flat sandals in neutral colors that will go
with just about anything. Strappy sandals are always fun for long
