Calling all fashionistas: Spring-ready pieces are finally emerging from winter’s doldrums, and they’re simply begging to be shown off. Ready to give your wardrobe in an instant refresh? Take a cue from the must-wear trends spotted at VogaCloset.
The spring runways aren’t typically known for packing on the deep metallics, but this year is a serious rule breaker. Sparkle, shine and shimmer seem to be the words of the season, and jewel-encrusted embellishments do all the work of accessories with none of the added weight. Search for dresses emblazoned with silver studs, or toss on a top that glimmers with sequins. There’s no better way to catch the sunlight.
From see-through skirts to hits of edgy mesh, sheer is this season’s biggest statement. Go all out with a transparent maxi, or dip your toes into the trendy waters with a peek-a-boo neckline. Either way, you’ll be speaking the latest style language.
Trends tend to move from one extreme to the other, so it’s no surprise that ladylike looks are beginning to usurp last year’s uber-dark edge. A lacy pencil skirt speaks to the idea perfectly, especially when it’s all done up in one of the year’s cotton-candy colors.
Midi to Maxi
Warm-weather hemlines will always favor the iconic mini, but longer lengths are certainly getting their days in the sun. The trick to staying on-trend here is to go all the way with a full maxi, a slim midi and nothing in between. You’ll also want to pay special attention to counterbalance: Pair a flowing skirt with a tight crop, or tuck a flouncy blouse into that curve-hugging pencil. Truly bold dressers can go full-on body con, but keep your eyes on the proportions.
Nothing is more refreshing than an all-white outfit, and this season’s version is crisper than ever. Two key elements dominate the trend: the little white shirt and the long white dress. Both will function as the ultimate style staples well through the summer.
The Flowers That Be
Flower lovers, rejoice: The floral trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere for at least another season. Keep your favorite pieces in rotation, but freshen up your closet with a skinny pant or tailored jacket that feels ripped from a garden party.
If the recent spate of designer options are any indication, tees are the absolute epitome of right-now chic. Graphic text adds a pop of panache; pair these talkative tees with a slim skirt, or tuck one under a blazer for a casual take on workday dressing.
