Spring Fashion Tips!

It's been way too long since I last posted. (Blah blah senioritis blah blah exams blah blah blah. You know how it is.) So I thought I'd post some tips for this spring's fashion trends!

Tip 1:
Think Bright.

Everything in the stores is very brightly colored, and there seems to be a crazy amount of neon. But if you're not too keen on looking like a bright orange traffic cone, try going for non-neon bright colors, like turquoise, purple, burnt orange, or coral.

Tip 2:
High-Low.

High-low skirts are a trend that I really like. They're a different twist on a regular skirt, but still basic enough that you can pair them with just about anything and dress them up or down.

Tip 3:
Color Blocking.

Color blocking has been popular for a little while now, and it's such an easy, fun trend. The trick is to use colors that are near each other on the color wheel (so, blue and turquoise, or pink and peach), or colors that compliment each other. When you're color blocking, colored skinny jeans are great pieces to have.

Tip 4:
Nautical.



Everything and anything nautical is right on trend at the moment. So think rope jewelry, nautical stripes, anchor patters, etc.

Tip 5:
Tribal.


Tribal patterns are also super popular right now. I love them on skirts, shoes, jewelry, and some tops. Just remember not to overdo it. Pair your tribal-patterned pieces with something basic.

Tip 6:
Mint.

And last but not least, our last spring trend is mint (the color, not the leaf). Mint nails, mint skinny jeans, mint shoes....you name it, mint is everywhere. And it's such a pretty color, it looks good on almost everyone.

That's it for now! Remember, you can always put your own personal twist on any of these trends, and make it more you. Have fun with it. :)

Now go raid your closet or run to the mall, and get trendy this spring!

Love,
Amanda

  1. That last outfit with the denim shirt and patterned skirt is great, I'll have to see if I can find something like that.
