I wish I could say that the weather was Spring like, but where I live in western Canada it’s still frigidly cold. However, I still like to plan for the seasons and talking about warmer weather helps me feel better about it. Also with spring 2019 being so full of colour, it’s easier to inject doses of colour into your wardrobe even in colder temperatures.
After reading various magazines and blogs about the Spring trends. I have to say I’m quite inspired.
Being a thrifter I get excited when I see trends that can easily be found second hand.
Here are a few trends I plan on trying and a few I’ll probably skip lol!
light purple , lavender, lilac, whatever you call it is a spring staple. It reminds me of Spring and pairs well with neutrals like grey and khaki and also looks lovely with yellow or pink
I have to admit I was a little on the fence on this one. Growing up right in the middle of the 1980’s where neon tackiness prevailed I think it can be made classy in small doses such as shoes or accessories or if you find a pretty top, skirt , pants or dress, be sure to pair it with black or white, denim or some other neutral for a more updated use of neons.
Again a trend i’m a bit on the fence about. But with other animal prints, using it in small doses can be fun, shoes, belts, a bag, a scarf? Or if you can find a nicely tailored jacket or blouse, why not try it out
I have to say I’m super happy that polkadots are still in style. You can’t help but smile when wearing them. They are also super easy to find in the thrift store in many colours and sizes. They always inject an element of fun into any outfit!!
5. Bright orange
I personally have always been a fan of orange or it’s close cousin coral. As you know, Living Coral is 2019’s Pantone colour of the year!! It looks so lovely paired with turquoise or aqua accessories! Again a colour that exudes happiness!!
Now for a few trends I’ll probably skip! Lol!
1. Bike Shorts
I know celebs like Kim K has rocked them with a blazer. Call me old fashioned but I believe bike shorts belong in the gym or bike riding. Those of us who don’t have the most toned or thin legs might not be able to quite pull this look off, each to his own though. 😂
Not really those most practical of material for everyday wear. I could see bits of it on formal wear but again can’t really see it being something I would wear on a regular basis.
Those are my picks for Spring 2019 and I know there are many more. I hope you found some inspiration for your Spring wardrobe 🌸
