Both flowers and new spring trends blossoming

By Haleigh Tieken

The flowers start to blossom and so do new spring trends.  Anything that is unique, colorful, fun and floral is in this season, as well as many trends from the distant past.

Flirty pastel tops are perfect for this time of year and can be paired with any type of solid colored pants. They’re the perfect piece of clothing to add to your wardrobe for the transition of winter to spring. You can even pair this ensemble with a pair of neutral flats or sandals and a white or cream purse.  The most popular pastels are robin egg blue, light pink or violet.

Next on the list is the maxi dress.  These have been in style for quite a few years now, and their popularity is growing.  Maxis can range from being solid colored to covered in lace or wrapped in floral prints — the list of options is endless.  They’re perfect to wear out on a warm spring day or even wear to the beach as a cover-up with a big straw hat for protection from the sun and a pair of gladiator sandals.

fashionLace and crocheted tops are a popular trend at some music festivals, but more and more stores are picking up on the style. This type of style is more of a boho gypsy inspired look and can be matched with wide leg jeans or even a pair of cute cutoff denim shorts. The lace look can be seen as very subtle, but many designers are adding more of an edgy twist on this look to make it more versatile, making pairing this look a little easier.

Necklaces are getting all the attention as far as accessories go this year.  All different lengths of necklaces are in and can be added on to any outfit that needs a bit of glam to jazz it up. However, necklaces can be layered and stores are even selling sets of necklaces for the spring and summer season. When pairing necklaces together, you always want to start with a shorter necklace such as a choker and add a medium length chain and then a longer chain over it. This look gives an allusion and allows elevation to your jewelry set. These accessories often look good with a plain solid colored tank or blouse.

Spring 2016 has many new outfit options for anyone to accessorize and play up their own personal style with being fun, floral and fresh.
