No, it is not too early to talk spring trends! If you are like me, you are trying to be happy wearing your winter clothes – with the occasional purchase of something to help you make it through until spring!
I started doing “research” to see what is on the radar for spring. Did I ever tell you that I tracked every single clothing purchase I made for several years? It was enlightening! At the end of the year I would see what I wore that most, look for patterns in my “bad” purchases, and learn from my mistakes. In doing so, I found that I bought the most in March and September for the change of seasons into spring and fall. I became a much better shopper when I looked at my yearly clothing purchases.
I cannot guarantee this will be my last spring fashion post!
Now, before I ever buy anything for the next season, I look at what I have. It is funny how you can quickly forget what is in your closet.
Here are the trends I saw and my thoughts:
Suit jackets – oversized shoulders – nope, not for me. I do not need to oversize my shoulders. I would like a knit suit jacket, maybe? I think I could go for something with some stretch. Let me know if you see anything like this.
Black Face Masks – nope. And, isn’t it sad that this is considered a spring trend? I have invested way more money in masks than I care to admit. I have my favorites and they are my Pomchies brand. I love these so much. I am curious about the Kitsch brand, though. I wish someone out there had a Pomchie and a Kitsch. Why do those both sound like diseases? Lol!
Head Scarfs – I love this idea. I do not have many small silk scarves but I am trying to do some different hair styles and I could try this one. I did steal a white bandana from my son. It is very new and stiff and has not been washed yet.
Easter Egg Pastels – Yes! I love color!
Yellow Handbags– Yes! Color, again! I actually have one in mind. This is a designer dupe. I need to find the source but I think it was $41. I don’t know why the photo is bad, but you get the idea.
Pops of Blue – Cornflower Blue and Lighter Blue Colors – Yes!
Tapestry Coats – nope! I appreciate them on other people but I am not really interested in this.
White Knee High Boots – I can see a shorter bootie or a cowboy vibe in white.
Yellow with Camel – I think I would like this! I have this old sweater. I love yellow.
Handbags with Fringe – I love fringe and I have these black and camel crossbody purses that I was thinking were out of style. Too much?
Florals – Head to Toe Flowers Included – I like a floral but I am not sure about head to toe. I hope these florals are still in style.
Holes in Odd Places to show some skin – Didn’t we do this? The cold shoulder tops of a few years ago? How odd of a place are we talking? A shirt with a hole that just shows your elbow? Is that odd enough? What about a hole that shows your right bottom rib?
Feathers – Yes! Give me all the feathers! Well, I like a feather print and some feather accesories. I guess it would depend.
White – Love white! Get you a Clorox pen, though.
Wide Leg Pants – Do my Matilda Janes count? I think you have to be careful about your footwear with a wide leg! I like this, though. The wide leg jeans look so cute on lots of people!
Sheer Layers – No, thank you! I guess I would have to see this but it scares me.
What is on my wish list:
red clogs – I know, I know. I had a red sandal obsession this summer.
yellow shoes – not sure what type yet or if I need these!
rain clogs – Hunters!
more Savanna Jane tops
Birkenstocks – not sure what type/color
the yellow purse from above or something similar
something cornflower blue
What trends are you trying?
