Pastel hues, floral fabrics, and feminine shapes are just some of the many stylish reasons we love spring. And this season’s trends incorporate them all! Better yet, they’re as perfect for the workplace as they are for warm-weather walks in the park.
This is the print of the season, and it’s our go-to for everything from blazers to a feminine dress. Just be sure that if you’re going floral from head to toe, break it up with a jacket and belt. If you’re going for just a hint of this garden-inspired print, try a pair of slacks with floral pumps, wrap a punchy floral scarf around your neck, or throw on a rosette satchel to top off your look. Looking to spring-ify a winter dress or sweater? Grab a flower-embellished statement necklace for a fresh update.
Leather was in last fall and winter, and it’s still really big for spring, too. Try mixing leather with girly silhouettes, like peplum, fit-and-flare, or pleated shapes. Also, make sure to pick just one leather piece. For work, it’s always easy to tone down leather by pairing it with a feminine blouse, soft cardigan, or floral prints.
When wearing thick bold stripes, keep the rest of your look low-key with solid colours and classic shapes. Wear bold stripes with classic pearls and diamonds, or pile on the chunky metal jewelry for an effortlessly glamorous look. If you’re just warming up to this trend, start off slow with a clutch, watch, or striped scarf, instead.
For a classic monochromatic look try picking a brighter focal point—like a bold sweater — and pairing it with lighter shades of the same hue, like pastel pumps or a pencil skirt. For just a touch of the season’s brightest shades, we’re always fans of a statement necklace, chevron scarf, or lipstick in these hues.
