Generally I don’t follow “trends”, well not really on purpose. It usually happens accidentally, mostly by just going in the store and buying what I like that maybe just happens to be all trendy-wendy that season. But I’m not usually a hunter, because I like things to last many seasons—timelessness (it sounds like a made up word). I’m a pretty basic dresser, comfort first—but duh, you guys already know that. So even though I don’t shop specifically for trends (most of the time, sometimes ya just have to have it) and hey, I bet you don’t either or maybe you do (cause that’s super cool, too)—it’s sometimes fun to know what they are. And I think even more fun to find everyday, non-trendy ways to own them. So for fun, here are 8 spring trends that won’t feel too trendy. You know if you happen to fall for them, accidentally or not.
FULLET – It’s like a front mullet, but for clothes. Well mostly tops, and maybe dresses and skirts. I liked this tank top/tunic fullet (up top)—the long line of a tunic in the front but it’s clear you are wearing bottoms AND you can access pockets (pockets are my favorite). Fullet Tank [UO]
PALE PINK – not new, but totally like the new neutral this season. I personally totally love it, and I really don’t even like pink—like at all, just ask Harlow. one [madewell] - two [artizia] – three [madewell]
TASSELS + FRINGE – You probably already own something, maybe from the 80’s or 90’s in the back of your closet? If then, look at you! You trendy-wendy you! These are the things I dug when I was off window shopping, just so happened they all had tassels or fringes, see accidental! one [madewell] – two [zara] – three [zara] – four [aritzia] - five [UO]
OVERALLS – It seems no one is over them, I know personally I’ve never been over them. My love has continued all the way from the 3rd grade. It would seem I share the same love as many, so overall, overalls are still a great idea (self pat on the back for bad jokes). one [zara]
PONCHOS + KIMONOS – they belong together because it seems sometimes (maybe just this season), they sorta cross over. The fun (or really lazy thing) about these items is they are comfy but throw one over a really-basic-and-not-thought-about-at-all, outfit and you look like you are really stylishly put together. That’s a win, win if I ever saw one. one [aritzia] – two [madewell] – three [aritzia]
LAYERED SKIRTS – or maybe the look of layered skirts, on a skirt but also maybe on a dress. Mostly a basic dress or skirt with a tiny small detail, easy peasy. one [aritzia] – two [zara] – three [zara]
THE SHIRT DRESS – or hey, just steal your husband/dad/boyfriends shirt. If it’s long enough, so trendy with zero effort. Or go get yourself a comfy dress that probably feels a bit mumu-esk but actually looks elegant and so pulled together. Again, with the comfort. one [aritzia] – two [UO] – three [aritiza]
What do you think? Have a favorite? And guys, trends or not, just think of this list as a spring time round up—because even if you drop that word (that word that always feels a bit icky to say, to be honest) these are just some good old spring wears.
