There is something about the slow disappearance of the winter chill, the emergence of longer stretches of warm sunshine, and the explosion of foliage that feels like the lead-up to a big event. And when spring weather fully arrives, you feel like tossing those dreary beanies, scarves and puffer coats in the trash as a symbolic sayonara to winter.
Saying goodbye to the cold may feel pretty satisfying, but it’s not nearly as much fun as welcoming spring with a smile and some fresh, on-trend garments. Spring is most liberating shopping season of the year, too. It’s a time when we go bolder with color and pattern choices. We can expand or even contradict our “go-to” looks. We can go a little crazy, and simply chalk it up to spring fever.
Hello Spring 2018 Trends
As in years past, the spring summer ’18 runways predicted a fun line-up of fashion trends. Read on for some of our favorites, along with budget-friendly pieces you can work into your rotation now.
1. This Color Makes Me Blush
Big, bold primary colors will generally be a hit this spring, but fire engine red is one to watch. You can wear red on red, or easily pair red with grays, silvers, creams and blacks. Red and pink or red and orange are also successful combos, but not for the faint at heart.
Try adding a red trouser or red blazer to the mix this spring. Or, take a baby step with a bold red shoe.
2. It’s Dazzling, Really
The sequin trend will continue this season. To avoid blinding your coworkers, save the sequins for dates and girls night out. These days, you can find fully sequined tops and pants along with the usual suspects of sequined-adorned shoes and handbags.
