Most fashion lovers have two favourite seasons: fall and spring. The arrival of these seasons brings a slew of fashion magazines containing artistic displays of the latest designs and trends.
As soon as the first crispy red leaf falls in autumn or the first ray of sun wakes the flowers from slumber in spring, I will have already dashed to the convenience store to grab a bundle of magazines. After my magazine splurge, I then begin my fashion ritual, where I lock myself in my room for hours to marvel and study the season’s new cuts, textures and colours.
Ever since partaking in my not-so-secret ritual a couple months ago, saying that I’ve been itching to go to the mall would be an understatement… I’m dying to go!
There are so many trends that I am excited about this year! The 1950s feminine cuts and fabrics, electric neon, soft and demur pastels, pleated skirts, mix-matched patterns, and bright lipsticks are all trends that I can’t wait to try.
If you have been following my blog for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed my huge lipstick obsession. So of course, the bold and bright lipstick colours this spring are driving me crazy! Ever since Kate King appeared on Elle Canada’s February cover sporting a soft yet bold pink pout, I’ve been on the hunt for a similar shade.
I finally satisfied my latest lipstick craving at MAC Comestics with the discovery of their shade Saint Germain. This adorable pink is definitely going to be on my lips all spring and into the summer.
As previously noted, I adore a hint of coral during the warmer months. From outrageous oranges to poppin’ pinks, the coral-ish family is fun to explore.
If lipstick isn’t really your thing, try adding coral accessories. I’m naturally drawn to statement necklaces right now, but earings, rings or a bright clutch can also add a delightful punch of coral to your outfit.
With so many charming feminine pieces to choose from this season, I feel like I am in style heaven. I love innocent, girly items and this spring is full of them!
One of my favourite trends right now is pleated skirts. I love the way they hang, blow in the wind, expand when twirled, and, most of all, how demur I feel when I have one wrapped around my waist.
I love maxi pleated skirts but, due to my petite stature, shorter hemlines are better for my figure. The pleated skirt I chose to add to my closet is short in the front and long in the back. I love this cut because it’s a modern twist on the classic item and, most importantly, it makes my legs appear longer. For those of you with legs for miles, I jealously suggest a longer pleated skirt.
I am so inspired by this season’s fashion trends that I had to style a fun photo shoot illustrating some of my favourite spring trends! If you have any questions or comments about these spring fashion trends, get at me!
Just a little photo credit and shout out to my jschool friend Josh Zeliger for not only taking fantastic photos, but being a pleasure to work with!
Until next time…
