3 Top Trends for Spring {Sponsored}

Over the past few weeks I’ve been sharing some of the biggest trends for spring and how you can get the look at Target. To recap we’ve talked about how to style polka dots, dip dye (aka ombre) and it colors for spring, corals and aqua. Here’s a review as well as a new introduction into my #1 favorite trend of the season… florals!

1. Florals – I have thought of nothing else since Drew Barrymore was on Katie Couric last week in an amazing floral print pant. This is my absolute favorite trend of the season. It’s happy and fun and adds a beautiful pop of color. The trend doesn’t stop at pants, we’re seeing the print on everything from dresses and skirts to jackets and accessories so my advice is to let the flowers shine. Keep the rest of your outfit simple and either do a black, white, or jeans combination with it or pick a non-dominating color from the print and incorporate a solid version of that shade as the matching top or bottom. For example, if you do a flower jacket (as seen below), you can do a light blue shade to pick up the tone from one of the flowers. If you want to add a stronger pop of color, do so in your accessories, makeup or sunnies to bold out the look.

2. Polka Dots – I’m having a lot of fun with polka dots this season. While the classic navy/white, and red/white combination will always be a staple, (especially come 4th of July), we have the opportunity to reinvent the way we where them this season. For instance by incorporating them in your scarves  and accessories. Keep the outfit clean and polished, then add a dash of color (yellow is always a fun choice) or bright accessory to make the look pop. The look below also incorporates one of my other favorite trends of the season… coral! For more of my tips on how to style coral as well aqua click HERE.

3. Dip dye (or Ombre) – Since dip dyes stay within a certain tone range the best way to match it, is to take the dominant color and compliment it as you would normally if you were wearing that color solo. This is especially true for bright color schemes. In the case of the scarf I’m wearing below (Mossimo Dip-Dye Scarf, $14.99) it was fairly neutral and divided between the shades of black, white and gray so I mixed grays and blacks as part of my look.
