As winter edges away, you might be thinking about cleaning out your cold weather wear, refreshing your spring and summer wardrobe, and updating your hair. If spring prep is on your mind and you’re ready to change up your look, here are a few trends and pieces to get you started.
In the hair department, sister styles bobs and lobs are still going strong. Looks trending on Pinterest included the angled cuts that got their start last season, with choppy and blunt looks popular as well. Longer lobs that that are trending tend to be sleeker, straight, with even cuts. Bobs are choppy with a hint of the casual beachy waves that boomed last summer, and the shortest styles go for more volume, with tousled curls and face-framing parts. Balayage and ombré looks work on the shorter styles as well, many of them featuring dramatic dark-to-blond contrasts.
Clothing trends this year are looking casual, boho, and sometimes retro. Floral patterns, nautical themes, and relaxed comfort are all in. Here are a few pieces from around the web.
We all know nautical stripes have been big. Criss-cross, ropy lacing is another popular take on sea-inspired styles, as in this loose-fit denim look from Old Navy.
Sleeve statements are in this season. This JC Penney top captures the stylish off-shoulder cut for a breezy look.
Swimwear in particular has taken a retro turn. Albion has a number of vintage inspired pieces, including this halter-neck one-piece in relaxed blue with a gently drawn design.
Sheers, cutaway panels, and lace have been popular for several seasons now, with no signs of vanishing. ASOS sells this delicate, summery white midi dress with a lace overlay.
Cutouts aren’t restricted to shirts and dresses, though. These casual sandals at DSW have a low heel and a geometric pattern that lets the breeze in.
Florals are big for dresses and blouses, so why not pants? These cropped pants at Old Navy are ready for spring, and they could be dressed up with a silky top and heels, or dressed down with a tee and sneakers.
