Are your ready for Spring weather? Read on to see what fashion trends will be in?

With sunny skies and flowers blooming, comes the arrival of new fashion trends. The following are fashion trends to be on the lookout for this spring. 

One upcoming trend this year is headbands. Sophomore Addison DiFiore expressed, “Thick yoga headbands, such as the ones Lululemon sells, are back in style. I keep seeing the comfy-yet-cute aesthetic for the ‘clean girl’ look and the sandwich method.” Sports Illustrated Lifestyle magazine (Lifestyle.si.com) explained that the “sandwich method” trend was started by TikTok star Sofia Richie and “involves wearing a shirt of one color, bottoms in another and shoes that match the color of your shirt.” Freshman Anabel Ramsay shared, “I’ve noticed a lot more outfits that are built off of the color scheme of the shoes.”

Next, a wide range of cardigans are coming into style. Ramsay said that she is “expecting that cardigans with alternative styles/patterns are going to be involved in more outfits.” From pastels to floral designs, cozy cardigans are the perfect piece for transitioning into the warmer months.

In addition, vibrant colors are being seen on the runways, especially pastels such as the shade  icy blue. Icy blue is being seen not only in clothing but also in accessories such as purses for an elegant accent color. An article on Vogue magazine’s website (Vogue.com) suggests, “Dip your toes into these icy waters with styles from Tove, Róhe, or Banana Republic; opt for a black base if you want a look that’s more edgy; soft beige for a more ladylike approach, or bold red if you’re having another go at color-blocking.” 

On top of this, the coquette trend that was seen this past winter is still prevalent. Freshman Shannon Bludoy commented, “I have seen a lot of people wearing pink clothes and bows in order to follow this coquette trend.” These bows are going viral on social media, especially TikTok. Whether they are used as hair accessories, on cardigans, or as earrings, they are most definitely in this spring.

Crochet and knit pieces are back and here to stay. The aforementioned Vogue magazine article declares, “A handful of designers have considered and sought to address this with openwork knitting techniques that are meant to behave as wearable air-con. Some styles are best worn layered, like Diotima’s beaded tank, making the exposure far more palatable for your commute, while others, like Staud’s crochet dress or Calle Del Mar’s sequin skirt are primed for sandy getaways.” Ramsay added, “I’m expecting to see more see-through layers with a knitted look to them.” A variety of fabrics such as tulle, mesh, and chiffon are also being used for a delicate and light look, as described in Vogue. Roses, floral patterns, and statement skirts have also been seen at fashion shows.

Finally, white dresses are soaring in the media this spring. From sun dresses to business dresses to lines, they are clean, bright, and flowy—perfect for the sunny months. “A little white dress is nothing new for spring—but what is new is the way labels like Tove, The Row, and Ferragamo styled crisp cotton poplin (over pants with loafers or with XXL belts) to evoke that same easy, breezy sensation in in more modern form,” writes Vogue magazine.

Conclusively, there is a motley of trends this spring season not limited to cardigans, pastels, headbands, bows, and icy blue. The goal with these trends is to remain fashionable and cool as the summer months approach. But ultimately, fashionistas worldwide are not just confined to these styles and trends; they are allowed to express themselves in other ways and even set their own trends.
