Spring Fashion: Bold colors, edgy accessories

Judging from the budding cherry blossoms and rising temperatures, it’s time to exchange thick, winter coats for new spring fashions. This season’s trends on the women’s runways feature strong black and white prints. In men’s fashion, styles range from striped collared t-shirts to blue cobalt suits.
Designers Alexander Wang, Jason Wu and Marc Jacobs broke out of the mold by having their models sport black and white prints down the runway. This look is chic and affordable and can be worn year-round.
Fortunately, for fashionistas who are die-hard pastel fans, it’s okay to hold to your favorite pair of mint green skinny jeans or floral dresses, because these colors and patterns are still in style.
However, designers have updated the look by choosing to have pastel colors on floaty chiffon dresses or tops that create a strong feminine look, and the floral pieces that walked across the runway were more edgy and modern.
One style consistently seen on the men’s runways was color-blocked striped t-shirts, which is good news for guys. Stripes help give the allusion that the man’s frame is broader, making it appear that he’s been hitting up the gym.
Men who want to make a strong statement at any event should seriously consider purchasing a navy blue suit. Suits ranging from almost any shade in the blue family walked across the runways, making it one of the season’s hot trends.
Designer’s encapsulated the fresh, breezy spring season by having sporty dresses with A-line skirts and shoulder show-casing bodices in their collections. These dresses move with a unique fluidity, making them both elegant and girly. Pairing this dress with flats or low heels with a pointed toe is definitely on trend too.
Another trend occurring on the male runways is the beach colors trend, which looks like pastel colors except the trend consists of more faded and worn hues.
Designers featured some of the boldest hues washed and worn-down using for this trend.
Neon was another favorite color hue, which brightened up the runways. Thankfully this trend isn’t a throwback from the 1980s, because designers give the look a futuristic edge with accessories.
A must-have for this season is a nice denim jacket. It’s important to make sure the jacket fits well if you want to achieve a well-polished look. Denim jackets are an essential fashion piece that almost goes with any outfit, so feel free to dress it up with a tie or dress it down with a worn down t-shirt.
Lace dresses of every bright hue make a bold statement for this spring. Lace is classy and sophisticated but also sexy. Another trend shown on dresses are cutout, which leaves the choice up to the customer on exactly how much skin they want to show.
Although these fashion trends are more daring, it will definitely turn some heads and make a strong fashion statement for this season. Don’t be afraid to wear something a little more edgy, but remember that being comfortable and confident never goes out of style.
