Spring 2020 Style Guide, Even in Quarantine

If you’re anything like me, I don’t like sweatpants. The baggy or loungewear feel was never for me. I miss those days when I could go to class dressed up a little. Honestly the Instagram hustle never stops and I still dress up to take selfies around the house and for when I have facetime calls with classmates, friends and sometimes when I have virtual dates with my man. I always like to know what is in style so I’ve put together a little guide for this spring. The thing about spring fashion is that there are so many different styles: boho chic, street style and even a throwback to the 90’s. Here’s my guide to how you can choose your own!

Ruffles and Puffy Sleeves

The new spring style look is light and airy, inspired by the season itself. The air is fresh, the weather is warmer, and people are more pleasant. Ruffles and peasant blouses come to mind. I always thought the word “peasant” literally sounded unpleasant; Being a peasant was never really a compliment. I love peasant blouses because they’re so feminine. They have a cute wide neck with puffy and airy sleeves for the perfect springy boho chic look.

Flower Power is Out, Basic is In

Mom jeans, babydoll dresses and crop tops are coming back inspired by Instagram influencers and Tik Tok stars from the west coast. They are bringing back the 90’s style with a modern twist inspired by LA and California. Brands like Brandy Melville are super popular, being super simple but cute. 

Expensive Looks

Everyone young wants to look like they have money these days. Another popular style is the expensive look. Not the dressy look, but rather an expensive street-style or relaxed look. Wearing sweatpants and a tee shirt that cost over a hundred dollars is where it’s at. You look dressed down, but in theory you are dressed up because of the kinds of brands you are wearing. It’s cool to wear clothing that is covered head to toe in graphic prints representing top of the line brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Supreme, Versace and Yeezy, just to name a few. Psychologists might think that these kids are trying to feel special, gain some social status, or another explanation. Nonetheless, college is a time to explore our futures and I personally am obsessed with Versace so I have no problem with saving up for a Versace jumpsuit.

I can’t wait for the quarantine to be over so that I can wear these outfits out in public! I feel like I’m going to be coming out a whole new person, head to toe in Versace.
