There is no wonder why we love spring. Flowers blooming after the cold winter days, warmer weather yet not warm enough, and most especially the array of outfit ideas and inspirations that the season offers. We’d love to hit the road and start out fresh. Literally look refreshing and new just like the upcoming season.
And what better source inspiration than the latest fashion week? A place where top designers and couture houses line up their spring/summer collection for the year. This year, there are two recurring theme in the runway: minimalism and the 70’s nostalgia. Here are some inspiring and cute outfit ideas that you want to try out this spring. Each trending clothes and items from the runway are illustrated with helpful tips on how to wear them casually, at the office, or at night.
This is a mix of modern chic and a little breezy bohemian. And the great thing with shirt dresses is how it’s offered up in different styles: double high slit, buttoned, or shifts. During the day, keep it loose and breezy and pair it up with neutral accessories. In the office, choose a more sleek look by cinching a thin black belt on your waist. At night, you can slip on a pair of tights and bring a blazer for the colder nights.
Crop tops have never stopped being trendy and stylish since Miley Cyrus had started wearing them. But this year, it’s more feminine and ladylike in boxy silhouettes and paired with long skirts. You can practically wear anything with this separates combination. Crop top and skirts are made for a casual style and Sunday’s brunch. In the office, keep the outfit with at most two main colors and a neutral one for the accessories. A pencil skirt that flares out slightly at the hemline will look perfect. For the night, keep it as dressy and yet as formal as possible.
Floral have been around for a while but for this spring, its patterns’ designs gets more complicated and sophisticated. Feel free to whip up anything during the day. Any shades, bright or dark, goes well and the floral pattern will give a brightly accent no matter what. Just remember to keep the print and color less festive during office hours and you can rock floral at work too. Follow Taylor Swift here for the night. Pairing it with a glimmering pumps and with the material part-sheer part-shimmer, it’s a great floral night’s out look.
Sheers and Laces
You don’t just find these two in the lingerie departments anymore. You can rock out the look while still looking classy and modest. Just remember to leave something to the imagination and you’re good to go. During the day, keep it casual with a pair of flat sandals. You can also wear a loose cardigan or cotton blazer if you don’t want to show off your arms. At night, you can literally take sheers and laces however you want. Meanwhile, at work, find something that slightly shows off just one or two parts of the body. Like sheer sleeves or one in the collarbone area. It gives the impression that yes, you’re an independent woman. But a woman, feminine and soft, nonetheless.
Sandals are an eminent item in a casual style or outfit. And it’s definitely abundant during spring. You don’t have to worry about the prospect of slipping in your stilettos at work too because you can wear sandals to work too. Pick out something that’s minimalistic and monochromatic. Avoid something too strappy like those knee high gladiator sandals. You can reserve those strappy sandals when you’re strutting towards a restaurant or the club. Just keep in mind that your sandals should complement to whatever outfit you’re wearing
