If you´re reading this blog, chances are you´re aware, if not particular, of the necessity of making your closet up-to-date. So you orient yourself with what´s new, what´s on trend, and what´s making waves on the runway. I guess you´re already planning by now how to incorporate some of the hottest spring trends in your wardrobe.
But if you´re also like me, as you comb through all the blog posts on what´s trending for the coming season, your focus is more on identifying what trends are here to stay. You are a wise fashionista; you want to know what pieces in your closet are rework-able and can be quickly spun-up to look like new. Well, this post should give you idea on which clothes you already have that can look like so now.
1. The Trumpet Flare
You remember how fabulous the trumpet silhouette was on the runway? Although it went a bit quiet the past few seasons, it never really disappeared. It constantly made appearances on the runway, whether as an elegant masterpiece or a casual dress down. Dress down? You think?
Let´s suppose you fell in love with this bare shoulder ruffle dress from zaful.com. There are many ways you can dress it up elegantly – with a shrug, a blazer, a scarf, or even as is – but always with high heels. To dress it down, try it with a moto jacket and some sneakers.
2. The Shirt Dress
The shirt dress is very hip. Funny how this style very rarely garner the spotlight, maybe because it´s such an essential that it´s always around? Think of how gorgeous you´ll look when teaming this shirt dress with some knee-high boots.
3. The Asymmetric
You know what´s really nice about the asymmetric style – top or dress? It looks effortless. You go sexy while keeping it casual and comfy. But how would you spin it into something on trend? Remember the runway trend I featured last week? The cold-shoulder? Yes, just drop one of the shoulders and you´re already rocking the bare shoulder trend of spring.
What´s even more interesting is this dress is so affordable (read: cheap) that you can grab it for less than $9 at sammydress.com. It doesn´t even look cheap, in my opinion. Just visit the site and look for “Casual Short Sleeve Striped Women’s Asymmetric Dress”.
4. The Bohemian Style
Well, anything Bohemian is always in come spring and summer. So whether you got a maxi, a knee-length, or whatever, as long as it embodies the boho chic appeal, you´re rocking something on trend! Keep it gorgeously casual with a floppy hat and a pair of flat thong sandals with beads!
5. The (Plaid) Fit and Flare
I don´t want to go philosophical as to why the fit and flare dress is undefeatable since its inception a few years back, but it´s probably because there are so many ways you can interpret this silhouette. Really. If you´re planning to go fit and flare in early spring, try a frock with long sleeves, layered with black stockings, and some thigh high suede boots in black. How fabulous!
So these are the five styles and silhouette that aren´t going anywhere, they´re here to stay, and they´re most probably already lounging in your closet. Go ahead and spin them up like new for spring.
