As the days grow longer and the weather becomes more inviting, it's time to start thinking about updating your wardrobe. This year, there are a lot of fun and flirty trends to work into your spring outfits.
So whether you're headed to work, out on a date, or you just want to look and feel your best during the warmer months, we've got everything you need to get inspired this spring!
Get the Most Out of Spring Trends
Just like the seasons, some fashion trends tend to come and go, while others stick around a little longer. We love this because it gives us the opportunity to dip our toes into something new, broaden our horizons, and ultimately discover what could be our new signature look!
This spring is no different. There are some truly fabulous styles coming out of the woodwork, so here are a few guidelines to help you make the most out of this season.
Choose a Style That is Comfortable For Your Body
Let's go back to the golden rule in Fashion: It's not about the garments, it's about how the garments make you feel. When selecting new colors and styles for your wardrobe this spring, leave whatever you "should" wear on the hanger.
Fashion is supposed to make you feel good, and it should be comfortable on your body. Select styles that energize you, ground you, make you feel fresh, dreamy, or whatever vibe you're aiming for.
The confidence you exude when you're adorned with an outfit that makes you feel good is infinitely more striking and gorgeous than the world's hottest mini skirt could ever be!
Keep Your Staples Well Stocked
Whether your style is loud and eclectic or minimalist and classic, a solid backbone of basics is fundamental to achieving the versatility of a wardrobe that lasts! Basics are what goes in between the spaces of your statement pieces, and you get more mileage from your clothing as they allow one item to be worn in multiple different ways.
Staples don't need to be pricey, but they should be well constructed, durable, and made from high-quality fabrics. Frumpy, overworn basics detract from the overall energy of your outfit, whereas good-quality staples add a fresh, clean feel to whatever you feel like wearing.

Don't Try to Do Everything at Once
Discovering your signature style is one of the best things about trends emerging from the fashion world. But trying to do everything all at once may overwhelm your look. Integrate these trends into your style gently then ramp up whatever makes you feel the best.
We've said it before: even the slickest threads in the world will not beat that charismatic confidence you emanate when you discover an edgy new trend that makes you look and feel like a rockstar!
So, without further ado, let's take a look at this season's hottest fads.
Monochromatic palettes and understated nudes are getting the shove by this season's spring chicken yellow! And nothing says you're ready to shine like the sun better than a splash of color to make your outfit pop.
There are many warm and cool shades of yellow on this season's runways, ranging from highlighter yellow to mustard, to soft dreamy pastel shades.
This season wear yellows in your accessories, hunt out the ideal flaxen bag, or opt for a hazy sunshine yellow t shirt to add a streak of this trend under a classic blazer.
Ultra Mini Minis
Time to spruce up those pins, ladies! Just when we thought Gen Z was pursuing modesty in the new trend for loose-fitting jeans, vertically challenged hemlines are back to shake things up! Spotted on runways like Prada, Moschino, and Max Mara, tiny baby miniskirts have emerged this season, as a flag that a 00's model would be proud to carry.
Nothing makes a statement more simple and easy than wrapping a mini around your hips and pairing it with a stunning, well-fitting classic white t shirt.
If you're not a fan of minis, we've seen a lot of asymmetrical skirts that add length and accents to your back, that also introduce a touch of romance and interest to your look!
Oversized clothing has the power to make anyone look like a supermodel. Clothing that is too big for your body can offset any timid feelings and give your attire a seriously stylish and modern street vibe. Plus, oversized clothing is so easy to layer, and one of the most comfortable and easy additions to jazz up your style with.
We absolutely adore this black high-neck sweatshirt with ultra-sized sleeves. The high collar adds flattering length to your neck, and the irresistible fabric is lightweight and breathable in spring, but can also double as a cozy covering for autumn.
With the exception of a bit of leopard, animal prints have been living under a fashion rock since the 90s. This season is calling you to wager your wild cards and play with some fun and vibrant animal prints.
Whether you're head to toe, mix and match, or just flashing a streak of nature's favorite designs, animal print clothing is versatile enough that it can be dressed up for formal occasions, or down for casual occasions.
One of the best things about animal prints is that they can be worn by anyone! It doesn't matter if you're petite or plus-sized, there's an animal print out there that will look great on you. So don't be afraid to experiment!
We absolutely love these classic t shirts with zebra print pockets. They are a great place to start if you're apprehensive about embracing this trend. If you want to dip your toes in a more subtle way, how about these black croc skin leggings that subtly salute the rise of the animal print in 2022.
When it comes to lifestyle fashion, sportswear is a must-have. If you're looking for something to wear when you're relaxing at home or running errands on the weekend, sportswear is one of the most comfortable and urbane attires you could dress in.
We absolutely love these olive tapered joggers, because they're snug, durable, and they will fit around your curves like they were made for them! They have a cozy-fit elastic band with a stylish chord around the waist for support and function.
They look amazing with this beautiful ropped fleece and allow your skin and body to breathe easy as the weather begins to warm up.
Top to Bottom White
White is a fantastic color to wear in spring because it's light, airy, and it goes with just about everything. One of our favorite combinations this season is top to bottom white because it keeps you cool and stylish at the same time.
Try pairing white denim with white blazers and a crisp white oxford shirt for a clean chic feel. You can't go wrong with the mother of spring outfits when you opt for a free-flowing white lace dress and white trenches. Another bonus, this trending outfit will easily transition from day to night!
The key to pulling off this look is to use different fabric textures to add interest. There are also many shades of white, from bright white to a dusty or distressed white that will create a layered effect in your outfit.
What are the new spring colors for 2022?
There have been plenty of bright colors trailing up and down the runways this season, including bright yellow, hot pink, sky blue, and soft lilac. This spring is a time to get playful with color combinations and incorporate them into your staples. Move aside hushed neutrals, spring colors have spoken!

Is Velvet Still in Style 2022?
Velvet is back for 2022! Velvet has a luscious, opulent texture, and it made an absolute hit over winter 2021-2022. And guess what? It still looks great in spring!
The difference with spring is you can show it off because you don't need to cover it with a jacket while it's minus a million degrees outside. Make a spectacle of your velvet!
