The Top Spring Trends

I'm obsessed with so many the big spring trends I've been seeing all over lately! There are tassels, pom poms, cold shoulders, ruffles and more floating all over this year, but I wanted to round up my absolutely favorite trends for you here on the blog today! I'm covering cold shoulder tops, floral patterns, bell sleeves and ruffles PLUS you can click each image to shop the style or similar styles.

 

Cold Shoulders

So, I am totally all about the cold shoulder trend! It makes tops look so feminine and the style looks great on EVERYONE. As quoted in WhoWhatWear, "Sarah Rutson, VP of global buying at Net-a-Porter, confirms that the cold-shoulder trend is incredibly flattering for all women because everyone's shoulders look great. It's so true—what a beautiful part of the body to show off."

 

Bell Sleeves

This is definitely my favorite trend. We saw bell sleeves last summer and in the fall, but now they are back for spring! You can make a big statement with these wide, sometimes-called-trumpet sleeves and they are just fun! 

 

Ruffles

Ruffles, enough said. Ruffles are a great addition to pretty much any top because they dress it up a bit and give it a pop!

 

Florals

Last, but not least, we have florals! We're wearing floral patterns from head-to-toe this spring! From rompers to maxi's dresses, this is one the biggest trends you need to be a part of. I just like all the floral patterns I'm seeing on these long rompers, they are bold and beautiful!
