Spring Color Trends for 2016

Spring is known for saturated colors and bold finishes—not just in budding trees and blossoming flowers, but in fashion trends that reflect the season’s vibrancy as well. This spring, eye-catching hues and stand-out prints are plentiful, filling the runways and store shelves with oodles of designs to try for the warmer months heading our way. Whether you can’t resist a bright new blouse or are easily swayed by a striking pattern, these top trends are must-haves for your spring collection.

Shades of Orange

Energizing, exuberant, and refreshing, orange can also be intimidating when it comes to incorporating the hue into an outfit. But, as Style Caster notes, the bright color is more versatile than you’d expect. That’s good news because orange is one of spring’s hottest shades. To keep the color from looking too Halloween-themed, opt for a persimmon shade and pair with teal. Or go with a sherbet hue, which looks great when worn with olive green or pale pink. For those who are fans of true, vibrant orange or tangerine-inspired shades, pair with camel-colored pieces instead of the usual go-to neutral of black.

Abstract Florals

Florals are a staple of spring fashion, and this season, abstract prints are all the rage. Unlike realistic floral patterns (where a particular flower, like a daisy or rose, are clearly visible), abstract prints feature a design that is muted or blurred in some way. More subtle than a traditional floral, this spring trend lends a certain femininity and depth to any ensemble. For a full scope of the abstract floral print, Lyst provides an extensive edit of dresses, blouses, skirts, and more to get your wardrobe spring-ready. Try an off-the-shoulder blouse (as noted here) or flowy maxi dress for a romantic finish that incorporates even more of the season’s top trends.

Mixed Metallics

High-shine finishes may typically be associated with fall and winter, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t rock metallic for spring and beyond. This season, mix the on-trend incandescent material with neutral pieces and metal accessories to achieve a look that is equal parts casual and glam. To get your shimmer on, Lauren Conrad offers a variety of ways to master the mixed metallics trend. The first step is to choose a single metallic statement piece, adding touches of other metals into the ensemble with your accessories. Pair jeans and a neutral-hued suede blazer with silver pumps and gold bangle bracelets; a pleated gold midi skirt with a cropped leather jacket; or a metallic-print mini dress with rose gold clutch and nude sandals.

Graphic Lines

Stripes are no stranger to the spring season, but this time around, the playful print is anything but average. Vibrant colors, scattered lines, and embellished designs give this pattern a modern upgrade to take it into 2016 and beyond. To seamlessly incorporate this trend into your wardrobe, Brit + Co suggests swapping out your favorite striped pieces for ones that pack more of a punch, and looking for graphic lined styles that work as surprising statement pieces. Think midi dresses, wide-leg trousers, and light, spring-appropriate coats.

Lipgloss & Lace // The Style Safari

Today’s trend is SANDALS!

I was in St. George, Utah a few weeks ago for my Grandma’s 90th birthday and was absolutely LOVING the weather. It was so nice to have some time in the sun and hang out with all of my extended family.

For the big celebration day, I decided to wear this semi-casual striped dress from Asos because it is super lightweight and never wrinkles. I decided to pair it with these new shoes I got courtesy from Corso Como! I have literally been seeing this type of shoe everywhere right now. I love the way it looks and think next time I might pair them with some cute leggings or even some ripped boyfriend jeans.

Make sure to check out the Corso Como site, they have a great variety of shoes. THESE FLATS, THESE BOOTS (on sale) and THESE HEELS are some of my absolute favorites!!
