Spring into Fashion – Trend Tips

Spring is officially upon us, which means spring fashion is finally here! It’s time to say “goodbye” to the parkas and “hello” to new prints.

Jumping into a new season of fashion is the perfect opportunity to find out what you like and what style fits your personality best.

When you’re shopping for your 2016 spring wardrobe, think: color, lots of color!

Electric color is key this season with all designers, and it can definitely be the basis of your wardrobe. The weather might still be cool some days, but find ways to bring in a pop of color to campus. Try a hot pink sweater or an electric blue pair of flats.

Mix and match your look. It’s the perfect time to expand your wardrobe with patterns and floral prints. Experiment by mixing both a classic and a bright color as a base. Once you have the basics covered, accent with the use of adventurous patterns and breathtaking floral prints.

Whether it’s adding a floral bag or wearing patterned pants, this pairing will lower the risk of the outfit appearing too busy, and will keep a clean, yet bold, look.

Spring 2016 is the season of graphic patterns and stripes. According to fashion magazine Marie Claire, this “super” stripe appeared in collections by Missoni, Prada and Roksanda. Each designer experimented with drastic stripe sizes and direction. Stripes are in, so now is the time to try them out!

In the end, fashion is all about finding what makes you feel comfortable and confident. Try something new by taking your favorite runway look and making it street style. Bold colors, patterns, floral print and super stripes are all trends that can easily be translated into your everyday style.

Don’t be afraid to take risks! You’re beautiful and bold no matter what.
