We’ve all read clothing trend reviews that left us more frustrated than informed. If you can’t see yourself wearing the latest trends, then there is little point in knowing what they are. So, I’ve entitled this a trend review “for the real woman” because that is exactly what I intend to write – a spring fashion trend article that a normal Wyoming woman can actually relate to and use. Here goes….
Key Trends represent the important prints and fabrics for the season that will show up in clothing, shoes and accessories.
Prints with flowers will be very strong for spring. Don’t be surprised to see jeans, crop pants, flowy pants and shorts in bold floral prints. If the thought of putting a flowers on your rear makes you break out in a cold sweat, have no fear – you can choose a floral top or dress as well. These prints are classically feminine, but head to toe floral, as in a dress print, goes in and out of fashion. If your budget is tight, the smart investment is to purchase a floral top that you can continue to wear once the trend wanes.
The Soft and Embellished
Soft, flowy and sheer will show up in blouses, tanks and tops. The hippest styles will be embellished with appliqué, lace, and crochet. Think bohemian and feminine or classy cowgirl.
You’ll see stripes playing a big role in tops and dresses this season. In Style Magazine listed the navy and white striped dress as a “key piece” in their trend analysis for spring (March, 2014, 272). Pair a striped top with a crisp white dress slack for a nautical feel that isn’t over the top. Striped pieces never go out of style and are a worthwhile clothing investment.
