6 Fashion Trends To Watch This Spring

With warmer weather just around the corner, it’s time to embrace the seasonal change and stock up on some new fashion essentials. Ditch the coats, put away those over-the-knee boots and dive into warmer weather and bare legs. Below are just a few trends which will be big during spring.

Distressed denim

Don’t pack away those denim jeans just yet! Distressed denim is big during spring, since it requires minimal effort to pull together an outfit which is comfy yet casual. Invest in a good pair of white jeans which you can wear up until November.

Ballet flats

A statement pair of ballet flats can go a long way, since it’s probably still too cold to wear sandals. Leopard print, florals or even classic beige are all versatile since you can mix and match them with various outfits for almost any occasion.

Midi skirt

While this trend is certainly not for everyone, the midi skirt is long and voluminous and usually cuts off at the shin. Pair with a fitted jacket and heeled sandals for a easy night time look without revealing too much leg.

Chambray shirt

Nothing screams spring-time like a soft and easy to wear chambray shirt. Make sure the fit is perfect, since this will be the number one focus of your outfit.

White blazer

A white blazer is the epitome of spring style, especially when paired with a glorious fake tan. Add some statement accessories like a studded backpack and lots of necklaces for an updated night-time look.

Drop-crotch pants

Black harem pants are easy to throw on if you’re out of ideas, and when paired with the right accessories, can make your look dressy or casual. Wear with a chiffon blouse for the evening, and a long-sleeve top for the day-time.

How To Style Distressed Denim

Over the last few seasons, distressed denim has made a steady comeback into fashion and can be worn regardless of rain, hail or shine. In particular, distressed denim jeans, shorts and midi skirts are trendy items which will spice up any old outfit. If you’re unsure of how to style your own distressed denim jeans, keep reading below on how-to adapt your denim to any situation.

Cardigan

If you want to achieve a laid-back look, there are a few simple ways to make this outfit super-comfy and relaxed. Distressed denim jeans are a match made in heaven with a comfy cardigan or sweater, since they are both laid back items (which will also keep you warm). If you’re stepping out of the house, grab a pair of ballet flats or ankle boots for a quick and easy ready-to-wear look.

Blazer

For more of a polished look, pair any distressed jeans with a blazer and striped-shirt combination to achieve an outfit inspired by street-style French voguettes. This look is perfect for the daytime if you’re planning a bite out to eat, or great with a clutch and heels for a classy night-time look instead.

Leather jacket

As the temperature drops, feel free to add more layers to keep the look dressy, but also warm and comfortable. Leather jackets add a rocker-chic vibe to any outfit, and are sure to keep you cozy and ready to run a full day of errands. Finish the look with classic brogues which are also winter-friendly at this time of year.

Coat

Another trendy winter life-saver, a coat is a versatile piece of outerwear that looks amazing when paired with distressed jeans. Wear a fun statement t-shirt under neath, or layer with a cute jumper if you want to keep comfortable instead. A fun trend for the season is the trench-coat, which comes in a variety of colours, styles and cuts to suit any body type. This piece never goes out of style, and you can pop it over your outfit to feel warm and stylish at the same time.

Button-down shirt

A white button down shirt is a classic way to style your distressed denim without breaking the bank. This is a great foundation for layering with coats, jackets and jumpers in the winter, but it’s also a fun look if you’re heading out for dinner or drinks at night. A sexy stiletto heel or pointed-toe flat shoe will complete the outfit and look ├╝ber sophisticated.
