Spring Trends for Your Closet

In case you missed it, I am sharing with you all my first post as contributor for CupcakeMAG! Check out my take on spring trends! 

Although it may not feel warm enough to incorporate spring fashion quite yet, The Powers That Be have been planning for spring and all of it's fashion wonder for quite some time. With the start of each new season comes new trends that become the must haves for everyone (and luckily, there are trends that stick around, which I love).
I've rounded up some of spring's popular trends! And don't worry...if some of these trends aren't one of your favorites, or you don't want to invest in a trend that much, there are smaller, more subtle ways to incorporate the look into your daily style!
So let's take a look at some of the trends you will be seeing:
  1. Florals
  2. Pastels
  3. Full Skirts
FLORALS

When I think florals for spring, I immediately think of the scene in The Devil Wears Prada when Miranda Priestly says "Florals. For spring? Groundbreaking." So true, but yet it just fits! There is something to be said about florals in the spring time! Here are a few options/ideas for you!Floral Collage

PASTELS

Pastels is something that you can always wear. I feel like it provides a light and carefree/spring vibe. Just like the other trends, there are more subtle ways to incorporate it into your look if you aren't into wearing it head to toe. I for one, like to incorporate it in smaller ways into my look- I feel like pastels aren't as forgiving as darker shades (at least for me). Something like the belt or necklace is perfect for me.

FULL SKIRTS

Full skirts just make me want to twirl, all day long! I am not one for wearing skirts or dresses too far above the knee, so I like that there are longer (they are often called midi skirts) options for gals like me! These full skirts are great to dress up for work, or wear more casually with your favorite Converse sneakers, a tee shirt, and your denim jacket! I for one don't need to dress to formal on a daily basis, so having the option to pair these skirts with sneakers is awesome!
