Happy Thursday ladies. I hope you’re having nicer weather than we are. It’s stormy and windy with torrential downpours here which have kept us inside and is getting old fast. We’re planning an escape to Palm Springs next month which has me thinking of spring clothes.
Adding a touch of new trends helps modernize our wardrobe and keeps us looking current. This spring ushers in many new looks we should pick and choose from to fit our personal style. Some of the trends that are coming in are surprising and some that are going out are a relief.
Top Handle Bags
I’ve always been a fan of structured bags so I’m happy to see the return of top-handled bags. These are typically smaller than other bags which helps you to appear taller.
All tones of beige, tan and sand are back in a big way this spring. These are great colors to wear as a column of color so I may dip my toe into this trend. These are available in warm or cool tones to flatter your coloring.
This hippie-inspired pattern is making a comeback from the ’60s. I’m not sure how many of us will be revisiting this trend and will be curious to see.
Pastels and Neon
Remember neon colors from the 1980s? They’re back and will soon be hitting the stores. Luckily, pastels are also on trend because neon is tough for many of us to wear. I will do some pastels because they’re already in my wardrobe, but nothing too washed out.
Things that resemble a uniform and jumpsuits in particular. In fact, jumpsuits are mentioned in many places as coming on strong. This is a very distinctive look which you either love or hate. It’s heavily sporty and looks very casual.
Subtle and full-on puffy sleeves showed up on the runways so will be showing up soon at all price points. Be aware this look broadens your shoulders so inverted triangle shapes might not find it their best look.
You read that right. They’re predicting bike shorts to be popular this spring. They’re showing them with suit jackets and heels. Beware of this combo over 40 which may look like you’re trying too hard. Sensible shorts are also on trend so this may be no different than what many women have worn for years.
Some of the trends going out are:
Off Shoulder Tops
I found this almost impossible to wear so I’m not sad to see it in the rearview mirror.
I’m surprised to see this go out and women who love a feminine look will continue to enjoy them.
Thigh High Boots and Stilettos
My legs are too short for thigh high boots so I’m happy to see knee-high boots replacing them. Stilettos haven’t been on my feet in years so I won’t miss this trend and hope it means more comfy shoes will be available.
What do you think you’ll be trying and what will you pass on?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
