The sun is out, and new (and some old) and improved spring fashion trends are taking over our campus. Here is everything you need to know to dominate the fashion world this spring!

One tried and true spring trend is cutouts. A cutout at your waist or shoulder is an amazing way to show some skin and get some sun. Tops like this one are incredibly “in” this season and can be dressed up or down. Perfect for meeting a friend for coffee or a night out!

Another incredible fashion trend you’ll find this spring is the little top big jacket combination. Balance out your look with a tighter top with a loose jacket over it. This look from Paris Fashion Week gives a perfect example of how to approach this style.


A trend I’m sure we’re all familiar with by now is crochet tops. Knit tops like this one give you the perfect boho look for any occasion this spring. Pair it with a cute skirt or jeans and you’re ready to take on anything. If you’re looking to take the crochet look a step further try a dress to fully embrace the knit life. 

Flowers won’t be the only thing shining bright this spring. Bold colors are back with a bang. Everything from bright green to hot pinks will be everywhere this spring. Find a few staple pieces with bold colors to fill your closet and you’ll always have something to wear. Tops like this one are great to dress up or down.

Calling all hopeless romantics; corsets are in! We’ve seen them in our favorite period pieces, but corsets are making appearances in modern fashion this spring. A simple corset is a great item to add a bit of *spice* to any outfit. Of course, a fun, patterned corset is also a great way to make a statement. Channel your inner Elizabeth Bennet and shock everyone with your amazing look. 

Speaking of a throwback, fringe is also making its way back into modern fashion. Take the roaring 20’s flapper dresses and bring them into this century’s roaring 20s. Dresses like this are perfect for a night out or just an excuse to try on and twirl around in. If you’re looking for a more casual option, these earrings are a great way to incorporate some fun fringe into your everyday look.


Take these trends and rock them this spring!
