3 Trends to Try This Spring

Today felt like spring. The air smelled of dirt and sunshine, despite the temperature never reaching 40 degrees. I am yearning for the warmer weather, the flower blooms and muddy walkways. I am also so ready for this spring’s trends. There are some great ones this year, but these three stood out to me the most. I am repeatedly seeing them on the runway and in magazines. It’s was like a treasure hunt, searching for the best examples I could find of each. I even searched my own room for examples, to throw in a bit of my own personal style.

These trends are easy to find, and easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. You might even have some trendy pieces hidden away in your closet already. As my wardrobe is still just a baby, I plan on scouring thrift stores to find some vintage versions of them. Keep in mind that while trends are fun, it’s important to never lose sight of your personal style and aesthetic when shopping. Now let’s get onto the style inspiration!



Plaid is a classic, well-loved pattern. It can be worn throughout the year in various colors and prints, making it accessible to almost any style of clothing. This spring, plaid is everywhere- on dresses, pants, shirts, shoes and jackets. Most notably, different prints are combined together to create unique outfits. Personally, if I’m going to wear plaid, it’s going to mixed with other plaids or stripes, which is exactly what this trend emphasizes.

Bold Florals


Even if you know nothing about fashion, it should come as no surprise to you that florals are in for spring. While they are nothing new, this year’s florals stand out. They are bold, in your face designs, reminiscent of 60’s patterns. I am a huge fan of this trend, and definitely plan on trying to thrift some “ugly” floral pieces.

Long Layers


As I explore more androgynous fashion, long layers seem to be where it’s at. I’m working at incorporating more of it into my style, and the runway has been a great inspiration for that. However, right now my biggest layering inspiration comes from @japanese_trash on Instagram. Depending on the pieces styled, long layers can give an ethereal, feminine vibe, or a more natural and androgynous look.


I hope enjoyed exploring three of this spring's trends. I would love to know which one is your favorite! Let's chat about fashion in the comments.
