Spring is a unique season. It’s the only one of the four that’s heavily associated with rebirth, rejuvenation, fresh starts, and second chances. While the other seasons all have looks that are strongly associated with them –like beachwear for summer and boots for autumn– spring is much more open minded. It’s still cool enough weather-wise to rock winter accessories like hats and scarves, but you can also bust out your warmer, flirty sun dresses. You can dress in soft pastels or go for bold, vibrant colors that match the flowers that are popping up. Truly, the possibilities are endless.
This spring, the trend we’re seeing everywhere is tied clothing. Whether it’s jackets, skirts, or even T-shirts, everything is getting all tied up in the fashion world. In terms of coats and jackets, having a cinch around the waist is a classic look. How does this trend tie in? With one of the hottest looks hitting runways all over the world: the updated trench coat. Marta Jakubowski in particular featured sexy satin trenches in her new collection that also brought in two other hot trends: polka dots and sheer fabric. This look truly sings. When combined with bright, optimistic colors, your updated wardrobe will hit a high note.
Ready to tie the knot? Ryan Lo premiered fashion centered around all things wedding. Pastels are the signature of spring, and his tied dresses featured romantic, whimsical pinks and soft eggshell whites. In other collections, suits bore belted, nipped waists that flaunted rich figures. Many were tied with tassels instead of a traditional belt, which incorporated another big look: tassels and fringe. “Festival fashion” is the buzzing term right now, featuring shirts tied in the front with silky, flowy sleeves.
All in all, this spring is going to be the season of fashion’s biggest looks coming together in a playful menagerie. The tied trend is sweeping the industry with full force, and it’s amazing how many different ways it’s found to dazzle. Whether you go bold or pastel, trench or tied shirt, now’s the time to rejuvenate your wardrobe. Bring on these chic, fresh looks and get ready to flaunt the new you.
