Spring Quarter has finally rolled around. All sunny days and high 70s are in sight (not that LA sees much different), and Sunset Rec is a weekend hotspot once again. But when we leave Sunset Rec and cover up our bikinis, we’re faced with the question: What to wear? The Harper’s Bazaar report of the last NY Spring Fashion Week gives us a bit of a clue. I’ve picked out three notable trends that they showcased, and now it’s our turn to try them out.
Floral prints have been a favorite of mine for a while now. Without trying, I end up at checkouts with a pile of florals time and time again. Considering my inner flower child, I was most excited to hear that floral prints aren’t going anywhere this Spring. With so many ways to do it, it’s not hard. Dresses, shirts, pants, shorts, jewelry – essentially all of the items in your wardrobe can feature some flowers. Right now Forever 21 has a feature page of all their flowery clothes so we can enjoy cute florals on a college girl budget.
Pastels aren’t here just here for Easter weekend this Spring. The light, “sorbet” colors are sticking around for a bit longer, and it seems to match the Spring mood. Pastels allow you to go romantic and super girly. Here’s a good collection of pastels to don this quarter:
3. Color Blocking
The third and final trend I’m outlining is a bit bolder than the other two. Color blocking makes a statement using the simple components of solid colors. It doesn’t seem too complicated, right? Unfortunately it can be harder than it looks, and you might want to consult some sources before going out in public with your first color blocking creations. This blogger has a good tutorial on how to do this trend the right way.
