Springtime is here! Despite the frigid 50 degree weather in our lovely town of Indiana, everyone is dressing for the soon to come warm weather. Around campus, it seems like every woman is wearing her spring best! There are patterned dresses, crop jeans, pastel colored cardigans and fashionable tank tops. Spring is the season for collegiate women to come out of their winter shell and come to life in the warm (or slightly warm) sunshine. The question is, how do you start wearing spring clothing when you’ve been trapped in winter gear for months? How do you even know what the trends are for spring? Last but definitely not least, what types of clothing look great on your body? Here are the latest 6 spring fashion trends that will flatter EVERY figure.
· Patterned Dresses- A big trend this season is the patterned dress. This season ANY pattern is in especially florals. When looking for a dress, make sure you follow the rules for your figure. If you’re busty make sure you try going for a sweetheart neckline to emphasize your features. If you’re curvy, make sure to emphasize your waist by getting a wrap dress or wearing a fashionable belt. Also make sure to avoid BIG patterns. They will make you look bigger than you actually are and take attention away from the entire outfit. If you’re small chested and slim have fun with prints! You can virtually wear any print you want*.
· Crop Jeans- This spring these jeans are the up the most upcoming fashion trends. They are cute, comfy and versatile. There are many cuts of these jeans like the gaucho, cargo and the capri length cut which is universally flattering to every figure. On campus, the capri length is what we see the most of. This popular cut works extremely well with all body types especially those with shorter legs. They are slim fitting at the top and crop a little above the ankle. If you have taller legs make sure the crop of your jeans is a little shorter then most pants *. To buy these jeans, try American Eagle Outfitters. They have sizes ranging from 00-18 that come short, regular and long length to flatter ever body type.
