Top Seven Trends for Spring…

One: Off Shoulder Tops & Dresses
If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you probably know that I’ve been obsessed with off-the-shoulder looks for a few years now. And I’m happy to report that this trend is sticking around for the long run – off-shoulder tops are hotter than ever for spring & summer 2016! This year it’s all about making a statement, with ruffle sleeves, stripes, or an all-white look. Many of you have asked what kind of bra I wear with these tops – I love this one and it actually works really well (and lasts for several months).

Two: Straw Hats
I loveeee straw hats in the summer. Whether it’s an oversized sun hat for the beach or a straw panama hat for grabbing lunch with your girlfriends, it’s the perfect way to complete an outfit. Even if you aren’t a “hat person” per say, I encourage you to try them! Even a T-shirt and jeans can look chic with a straw hat. I just ordered this one – it’s less than $30 and adorable for spring.

Three: Round Sunglasses
This spring, round sunglasses are ALL the rage. Every major designer has come out with a pair (or several pairs!) of round frames. They instantly make you feel like a movie star when you wear them – or like a Charlie’s Angel (lol!). I am dying for this pair, but I want to try them on before I make the plunge!

Four: Platform Espadrilles Wedges
Platform espadrilles will be around all spring and summer, so get used to them! You can’t go wrong with a neutral pair like the ones below – they are actually incredibly versatile and look amazing with jeans and denim shorts. This pair is a really, really good deal – they look identical to this designer pair but are almost $500 less! Something you won’t see much of this summer are stilettos… a narrow heel has been replaced with a chunkier one this year.

Five: Bell Sleeves
If you caught my last two blog posts, you probably picked up on a theme – bell sleeves! I LOVE the look of 70s-inspired bell sleeves tops and dresses. (In fact, I picked up this shirt with bell sleeves just yesterday.) Pair them with high-waisted shorts, jean shorts, or go for a printed dress or romper – designers are coming out with all different variations on this trend. I am obsessed with how comfortable they are, too.

Six: Denim Shorts & Skirts
I’m a sucker for a good pair of denim shorts, but this year skirts are in too (remember your middle school days?). Rips, frayed hems and embroidered hearts or stars are all things to look out for when you pick up your next pair. I own this pair and they are WAY cuter in person than they look online. Promise!

Seven: High Neck Bikinis
This is perhaps my favorite trend of all, high neck swimsuits! They are very classy while also being sexy at the same time. I love ones that have mesh inlays (like I’m wearing above). Crochet is also a very popular style this season – I am obsessed with this crochet swimsuit that’s online now.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post – sometimes it’s fun to switch it up and do different kinds of posts! There are also a bunch of other spring/summer 2016 trends that I didn’t include in this roundup… like statement earrings, tassel handbags and lace-up sandals. I’d love to hear what your favorite trend is!
