The 6 Trends You Need For Spring

Posted -

After months of fuzzy socks, hot chocolate, and knit infinity scarves, it’s finally time to ditch winter and say hello to a much-welcomed spring. You may be ready for spring, but is your wardrobe?  Dressing for spring is going to take more than just shedding your puffy coat and digging your sandals out of storage.  Fortunately, stylists Salvador Camarena and Robert Tanis can tell us exactly what to expect this season and what items you have to get right now.

Skater Dress

These sporty fit-and-flare dresses are everywhere, and we love them!  Camarena considers sporty dresses a must-have piece for collegiettes this season. These dresses are fun and flirty and they give your outfit just the bounce it needs for spring. You can dress your skater dress up with a statement necklace and a pair of wedges, or down with sandals and a denim jacket – either way you’ll be ready to hit the town, or just campus, in this sporty, fit-and-flare trend!

Cropped Pants

“This spring, it’s all about the pants,” Tanis says.  Slim ankle-length pants can be a trendy and comfortable go-to piece for those busy days spent running from class to class. This trend reflects the mid-century modern look that is oh-so-popular this spring, he says, and encourages collegiettes to channel their inner Jackie O. Try coordinating your cropped pants with ballet flats and an oversized shirt for a cute and casual on-the-go look!

White Pumps

Looking for a way to make your little black dress or favorite skinny jeans ready for a night out this spring? Look no further than a simple pair of white pumps!  Contrast is huge right now, and black and white are among Camarena’s go-to shades this season. So add a pop of contrast to your going-out look this spring with a pair of white pumps!  They’re cute, versatile, and they go with just about anything you could possibly pull out of your closet.  No wonder these shoes are white-hot for spring!
