Runway to Real Life: How to Pull off Spring’s Top Trends

 Strut this Spring's Top Trends


‘Tis the season to be perky, ladies, and with so much sun to look forward to, we might as well dive into our wardrobe and commence the spring cleaning frenzy! And by that we mean not just getting rid of those long-forgotten items that have been collecting dust in the back of your closet, but it’s also the perfect time to reconsider some of your spring fashion choices, with a little nudge straight from the runways!
However, therein lies the rub – some, or even a vast majority of those trends are not entirely suited to meet the needs of your everyday life. If you have found a way to take those Saint Laurent glitzy boots to a teacher-parent conference, do enlighten us. That is by no means an excuse to abandon our haute couture dreams, so let’s get down to business and bring these trends into wearable combos!

Pack on those pastels

Don’t be fooled by the subdued nature of this palette, as the sheer variety of shades available makes it close to impossible not to clad yourself in an array of ice-cream hues. From an overwhelming love for lavender, which perhaps stems from this year’s key color ultraviolet, all the way to pure white, what makes this trend oh so sweet is its ease of mixing and matching.
On the other hand, although you can effortlessly stay pretty in pink with a delicious pair of Racil pants, don’t be afraid to leap outside of your pastel comfort zone and experiment with some color-blocking, as well. Start with a single accent in bold red or neon green, for instance, but rest assured, you’ll quickly fall in love with your new stylish rainbow!

Don’t fear patterns



Color is not the only way to infuse your spring look with some fresh runway details. In fact, some of the most daring and beautiful pieces have stolen the spotlight precisely because of their clever use of patterns. For starters, vintage details are here to stay: from retro florals that can splash over your maxi dresses, all the way to delicate polka dots, in black and white to further revive this timeless style.
Other patterns that have kept their simplicity include the famous plaid look, but keep in mind that they have been given a modern makeover for the season. You can start simple with a lumberjack-worthy shirt, and move towards something as daring as a high-waisted tartan skirt, whose contemporary asymmetry brings out a new level of cool in this checkered look.

Stylish layers



Even though we cannot possibly mimic the layering seen among Gucci and Miu Miu models, among many others, this simple principle is the epitome of spring and a very practical way to enrich your look. So, instead of going overboard by piling up a tee, a shirt, a cardigan, and a classy coat, followed by a layered necklace, you can easily think practical thoughts and add some cool, but useful basics to your spring wardrobe.
While your day look may be settled with a simple tank top and a pair of distressed jeans, you can easily take your pick from a wide variety of women’s jackets that will be trendy for the season: the classic biker jacket never goes out of style, while a more sophisticated occasion may call for a printed blazer.

Denim galore


It’s sturdy, stylish, and devilishly sexy, and it’s not going anywhere from the fashion realm any time soon – denim is a preferred fabric for many a designer, and they have shown a distinct preference for denim-dominated outfits. Tom Ford, for example, has offered a few dark looks that are truly pure, head-to-toe denim. And even though it may feel like overkill to instantly step into a top and pants along with a jacket all made of denim, you sure can go back to basics with this durable material.
A form-fitting denim dress makes for an excellent spring pick, while Levi’s jeans are a staple of any collection. Plus, all of these and many other dark-hued items go splendidly well with the sporty, urban vibe that has been taking over the world by storm. Just wrap it up with your favorite pair of Converse sneakers, and you are one logged t-shirt away from spring-tastic!

As you can see, the catwalk trends are not as unreachable as they might seem at first. All it takes is a touch of imagination, some personal alterations to make the trends fit your preferences, and your personal spring collection will be brimming with runway pzazz!
