Get ready to swap out your puffer coats and chunky sweaters for cute Spring outfits. It feels hard to find your groove again when coming out of the winter fashion season but these new trends will not disappoint. With warmer temperatures in the Northeast you may already be planning your transition to Spring wardrobe. But in case you aren’t tapped into what’s trending right now, we’ve got you covered.
You need to try these five new fashion trends for the Spring, they’re anything but basic.
1. Plaid on Plaid
Preppy dressing is in for Spring thanks to forces in media such as the popular show Gossip Girl and the “old money” aesthetic trend on TikTok. Fashion lovers are recreating prep school outfits using pieces like cardigans and loafers. It’s clear that buttoned up basics and plaid on plaid dressing is in for the season.
2. Maxxed Out
After what seems like an eternity of the fashion community obsessing over mini handbags, mini dresses, mini skirts, and crop tops; maxi dresses and skirts are finally back on trend. Maxi dresses make creating a cute Spring outfit that much easier because all of your accessories focus around one piece. It takes the stress out of creating an entire ensemble -because the maxi dress is the center of the outfit. You can have matching accessories like shoes and a handbag like Selena Gomez does to make a cohesive look.
With a push towards unstructured dressing including loose tops and bottoms, it’s not surprising that sheer blouses are in for the Spring. Not only do they pair perfectly with jeans and sneakers, but they give off that casual model-off-duty look that we all aspire to achieve. You can recreate Kendall Jenner’s outfit by pairing a sheer button up top with dark wash denim. Take the look from day to night by swapping out the jeans for a pair of leather leggings. You’ll be dressed like the ultimate cool girl.
4. Seeing Red
Red is a bold color that signifies confidence and strength, it also is a key color seen in nature during the Spring season from flowers to sunsets. Regardless of trends, fashionistas wear red all year round, but we’re especially excited that the color is having its main character moment now.
5. Blazer & Dress Combo
This outfit trend is the perfect mix of a masculine structured piece and a feminine flowing dress. When you’re in a fashion rut, a simple outfit combination like a maxi dress, blazer, and sneakers is a chic look that adds variety to your wardrobe.
