Spring is right around the corner, which means it’s time to update your wardrobe for the new season. Between must-have garments, accessories, and footwear, there is no shortage of options for filling your closet with fresh trends. Here are just a few of the season’s top designs to get your spring shopping list started.
The Slip Dress
This particular style, wildly popular in the ’90s, is making a comeback for 2016. Slinky, sexy, and above-all chic, the slip dress will quickly become a staple in your wardrobe, regardless of season. To seamlessly transition this trend into your spring rotation, try layering. Wear a thin turtleneck underneath or top with a chunky sweater for cooler days. For another, more unexpected twist on the typical slip dress ensemble, try wearing one under a skirt or another dress, leaving a bit of lace poking out beneath the hem. Finish with a cropped leather jacket to add a bit of edge to the feminine silhouette—making for what Stylecaster calls the quintessential date night outfit.
Ankle boots are nothing new to the top trends, but this season, the average bootie is getting a western-inspired makeover. Featuring colorful embellishments, intricate stitching, and a sleek, modern shape, these springtime ankle boots are ideal for adding a bit of flair to your favorite ensembles. For inspiration, you can view Lyst’s collection of boots for the season. With a wide range of styles from designers across the industry, you’ll be able to find the perfect spring bootie for you.
A Pop of Orange
This bright hue is predicted to be the color of the spring and beyond. And though orange isn’t typically thought of as universally flattering, designers are showing the hue in multiple shades and tones this season, making it very wearable. For an ideal transition piece that bridges the gap between winter and spring, opt for an orange coat that you can wear on chilly mornings. Once the weather warms up, try this vibrant hue in a chic shirt dress or silk, pajama-inspired pants.
Ever since Victoria Beckham premiered her half-moon handbag at New York Fashion Week this past September, industry insiders and fashionistas alike have been obsessed with its unique design—and for good reason. Glamour writes that the half-moon shape has all the key components of a bag of the season: it’s highly Instagrammable, has a distinguishable shape, and is roomy enough to hold all of your worldly belongings. Available in a variety of sizes, fabrics, and colors, this handbag is sure to become your go-to carry-all for spring.
