It’s pretty much impossible to feel Spring nearing when it looks so blah outside but that does not mean my mind isn’t already there. And that probably has to do with the fact that I am super hyped about Spring “trends” and am already planning how I am going to convert runway to real life.
Needless to say not every Spring inspo is my thing, examples: super stripes, bra tops and neon but the inspiration that has reeled me in has me jonesing for Spring in a real way. A few runway vibes that I will be translating into my day to day are: army surplus, sleeve slits and robes.
Although I am not full into the military look, I love the color inspiration drawn from these garbs. When I want to shed my winter wardrobe of black and grey, I love the army green and khaki options that scream Spring has sprung but allows me to stay within my neutral comfort zone. And although buttons, lapels and stiffness aren’t my bag, a fabulous military inspired blazer never hurt anyone.
I can appreciate last year’s flare sleeve but it was a bit too much drama for my look. That is why I am very much into the more subtle sleeve slit this coming season. It can look a bit daunting via runway but the way it is being translated into ready to wear is stunning. And it’ll be a great excuse to reintroduce your favorite wrist stack.
And the final Spring 2017 inspo I am living for is the robe. Lingerie as clothing, not really my jam but robe sweaters, coats and dresses, yes please! The flowy silhouette with the cinched belted waist, too good! Epitomizes the comfy chic vibe we all know and desperately crave to perfect.
And so there you have it; despite the weather dragging us down, fashion always manages to lift us back up. Totally time to hunt for our Spring wardrobe with these key themes in mind. We’ll keep you posted on what goodies we find! xo
