#5 Spring Trends to love & wear...
by Allison Meyers
It’s that time of year again. Right around late March/early April I look out the window and I’m done. I’m OVER IT. I'm ready for it to start feeling like spring finally so I can TAKE A LAYER OFF! Pathetically, it’s dreaming about fashion that gets me through it & this spring I’ve been having LOTS of great dreams! And now finally the warmer weather has arrived so here are just a few Spring 2017 Trends that EXCITE me! (and a few tips on how to wear them). Sweet dreams fashionistas...
Okay, probably the only thing that will get me in a strapless bra these days… all these GORGEOUS off the shoulder designs! Blouses, dresses, cover-ups, in solids, stripes, florals… they are ALL over and they are fabulous-
Wide leg pants
Let’s face it ladies, some of us are not cut out for the “skinny” jean look. I’m so excited to see wide legs back in the game. Nervous about your height and being able to “pull this off”? Just think… not-too-wide-leg, high waist, no pleats, longest length, a very fitted top and the HIGHEST sandal you can possibly walk in.
Menswear shirts, gone ULTRA femme
Take a men’s suiting shirt, add some ruffles, bubble sleeves, cut-out shoulders and perhaps a tie … and that’s what you’ll see this spring. But BEWARE fellow fashionistas… some of these looks are a bit much. Add lots of gathering or blouson sleeves to a stiff poplin fabric, and VOILA! You have transformed into the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.
Trench coats & dresses
What I would consider one of the more valuable contributions of the Kardashians… the trench trend!!! From coats to dresses… to those in between! An easy-to-wear look that can be dressed up or down.
Move over wedge, and make room in my closet for ANOTHER comfortable shoe that will give us “vertically challenged” lots of extra height without sacrificing comfort!
