Normally I wouldn’t wait until April to publish my spring trend guide, but it looks like my procrastination is easily forgiven this year since we technically haven’t had a spring yet (at least not in the Midwest where I live). The high for tomorrow is 39, so you get the picture… Anyways, on to spring!
I would summarize this year’s trends as minimalist. By that, I mean two things: First, that each trend in and of itself is not overly flashy or a showstopper (other than perhaps statement earrings). Second, that most of these trends are best worn by themselves, paired with other, more classic clothing (example: clear heels with a classic sheath dress, or high waisted jeans with a button down). Don’t forget about two of the hottest trends for spring this year- straw totes and sneakers, which I covered here and here.
