Hello SOTGC community,
The weather has finally begun to come around over here on the East Coast. No more polar vortex woes! (I say this as I cross my fingers!) As the weather gets warmer, I begin to browse through the forgotten dresses, skirts, rompers, etc. in the dark abyss of my closet. I no longer have to long for the days where I can wear my spring apparel without wincing from the blistering cold wind and snow.
So, what is in for the spring? This year it’s all about being flirty, feminine, and bold. The top trends for spring dresses and skirts are pastel colors, black and white color blocking, geometric prints, tea-length hems, and full, voluminous silhouettes. Feel free to incorporate these trends into your own personal style. Whether you are a vintage queen or a futuristic fashionista, the general idea of these trends can easily be incorporated into your wardrobe without completely changing your style.
Take a peek at some of my choices for each of the spring trends mentioned above! All of these styles were found at TJ Maxx, so get your shopping shoes ready, and go hunting for those great deals!
Pastels: Elizabeth and James- Silk Colorwash Leah Dress $129.99 (Originally $260): This dress has a very simple and comfortable silhouette. It can easily go from day to night during the spring and summer by simply just changing from flats/sandals to a nice pair of heels/wedges. The colorwash gives it a feminine ombre effect.
Black and White: Tahari by ASL- Colorblock Ponte Dress $49.99 (Originally $100): The black and white color blocking on this dress creates an hourglass silhouette. This dress is perfect for work, just pair it with black flats or heels and you are ready to go!
Geometric Prints: Maggy London- Jersey Geo-Printed Shift Dress $29.99 (Originally $60): This frock is fun and flattering. The hemline falls just above the knees, revealing a little bit of leg but still tasteful enough to wear to a ladies luncheon. The varying colors and prints add personality and flavor to your wardrobe!
Tea-Length Hems: French Connection- Harlequin Dream Jersey Dress $39.99 (Originally $80): Tea-length hems are a big hit this spring. Designers are beginning to pair the shin-skimming hems with flattering silhouettes to accentuate your body type. This French Connection Dress gives a bohemian yet refined feel and can be worn during the day and on those warm summer nights!
Full, Voluminous Silhouettes: French Connection- Cotton Classic Country Dress $49.99 (Originally $100): These voluminous silhouettes come with cinched waist lines, which highlight your curves while also maintaining a dramatic effect from the volume in your skirt. It gives a playful and classic feel to the traditional sleek A-line silhouette.
There are TONS of styles and variations of each of these trends in skirts, dresses, rompers, and more! Get ready for spring ladies! Enjoy the beautiful sunshine!
