With winter departing, it’s time put away the sweaters, boots, and jackets and get out the spring clothes! If you’re not sure about the trends for this spring, the newest ones were all featured this past February in the Mercedes Benz Fashion Show. The show lasted eight days and there were over 90 different designers. With all those shows, you’re bound to find your new favorite item for the spring season.
One of the many trends seen at the show was the shift dress/shirt. This style is very loose with little or no definition at the waist. This style was featured by Calvin Klein in a two piece suit. It would also look great with jeans and a crop top jacket. Here are some cute examples…
Another style is the tea length skirt. This style isn’t fitted and ends a few inches above the ankle. You can pair it with many different fabrics or tops. This style can be worn casually with a tee, or you can dress it up and add a snazzy jacket and blouse on top, then pair it with a set of heels. You can also wear it with a crop top as seen on Zooey Deschanel at the Golden Globes.
Metallic, pastels, and artful pop are all must have styles as well. Metallic is a ’90s inspired look that you can wear many ways. A skater skirt in this fabric is cute pair with something simple, a plain black or white crop top. It is very fun and chic. This style was seen in shows by Lanvin and Haider Ackerman.
The pastel look was featured in shows by Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu. Pastles can either be a subtle look or you can go for something more exciting like a floral pattern. The artful pop is a more outgoing than the rest, it can look great dressed up or dressed down. Color pop is just another name for color and it is awesome for any clothing article this spring. Pants, shorts, dresses, and shirts are all available in bright colors. The look was colossal at NYFW seen by Marc Jacobs and Chanel. Here are some pictures to show how to rock all three looks:
These are just some of many different styles you can wear this season. You can take different cuts and patterns and pair them together in your own way. If you want a guide to help you, here is the link the New York Fashion Week to check out all the pictures and shows for yourself:
